UA is built on performance and key to the eyewear is making sure athletes are prepared to perform at the highest level with no setbacks.




Innovation is a fundamental pillar for Under Armour. UA Tuned TM performance lenses are built to give athletes an advantage in varied sport environments. Under Armour has developed UA ArmourGrip and UA BubbleGrip Nose Pads for the utmost levels of comfort with added performance benefits, giving an edge on the competition.


The collection is manufactured with top technical materials. For example, TR90 Frames lock on the face to avoid stress fractures or eyewear bouncing or sliding off during exercise. Rubber nose pads fit more securely whilst sweating and built-for-Sport Temples are flexible and designed with laser engravings for comfort.



All of the frames enhance the capacity for longer wearing during sporting activity. Lightness is important for zero distraction which is key for extended sessions of running, training, cycling, golfing, or even high impact sports like baseball.


All Performance Sunglass lenses & UA TUNEDTM lenses have hydro/oleophobic coating applied to the front & back of the lenses. The hydro/oleophobic coating repels water, dust, oil and dirt from the lenses and stays clean longer offering optimal visual results.


UA TUNEDTM performance lenses are scientifically engineered for ultimate visual precision by sport. Each UA TUNEDTM lens filters in the light you need to create a sharper colour separation enhanced visual detail and heightened contrast within varied sport environments

  • 100% PROTECTION – defends against 100% of harmful UVA/B/C rays
  • DEPTH PERCEPTION – increase depth perception and deliver the brightest field of vision with maximum image definition.
  • SHARP VISION – the right compromise to see higher contrasts and vibrant colours in their surroundings and details of the environment with more balanced colour perception.


The Polarized lenses contain a filter that polarizes the light, blocks reflections, and prevents glare.

High contrast polarized lenses have filters with a special dye inside the mixture which blocks the areas of overlap between the colours offering greater contrast between the colours and consequently higher definition of the image.


Multilayer mirrored lenses are a combination of mirror coatings offering top quality, performance, durability & scratch resistance. Specific colours, such as the Infrared Mirror, additionally absorb harmful infrared waves offering further protection to the eye.
