Climate change is the most important issue facing humanity, and doing so is more important than ever to ensure we take action to minimize our ecological impact.
Grilamid BTR XE 4010, the scientific name for the polymer, is a sustainable replacement for TR90. It is extracted from the Castor Plant, but offers the same characteristics as TR90 nylon (durable, flexible, lightweight, bendable, less likely to break) without requiring the use of gasoline.

The castor oil plant is today grown primarily in India. During its growth phase, plants are capable of binding large amounts of CO2. Castor beans contain a large part of oil that can be modified to create primary raw materials for various biopolyamides. With the partially biological material Grilamid BTR, an amorphous transparent biopolyamide, the reduction of CO2 emissions compared to traditional transparent polymers, such as PMMA or PC, is more than 40%.
One of the Serengeti models that they use eco-nylon are the Bellemon, sporty but chic glasses. The keyhole nose bridge lends a strong personality to this boater-style goggle, while the angular bottom gives it a modern silhouette. This model is part of the Serengeti sports series, which has opted for two different lines this season: the main one, of high standing premium and the sports one, where the design, quality and comfort of the frames and the superior definition of The lenses allow you to have total control in any environment: behind the wheel or on the throttle, in the sun, snow or sky. In addition to the ecological frame, the Bellamon stands out for having lenses that include polarization, spectral control and photochromic technologies: it is called 3-in-1 Technology.

A unique 3-in-1 technology
Serengeti eyewear features an industry-leading combination of technologies: photochromic, Spectral Control® and polarization technologies. Each of them brings its own benefits to eye comfort and visual acuity.
Spectral Control Technology
Serengeti’s Spectral Control technology has been featured in every lens since the brand’s first day. This technology manages the wavelengths of light to give a better definition of what you need to see. Much like an audio equalizer filters sound frequency, the technology adjusts and filters harmful shortwave blue light, allowing more red, green, and yellow to pass through. Landscapes that appear washed out, dull, or flat with other lenses become naturally sharp, vibrant, and vivid.
When glare reflects off the road, it results in less visibility and even a dimmer light.
dazzling, what can be dangerous for the driver and, at the same time, be very taxing on the eyes. Serengeti’s Polarizing technology suppresses glare and frees the eyes: parallel light rays can pass through unhindered, while perpendicular light is reflected and distracting. This allows drivers to get more clarity, reduce eye strain and focus only on the horizon.
It is known that the best visual acuity also comes from the material of the lens. Some materials create distortion. Serengeti mineral lenses offer the best available visual acuity. Each pair of Serengeti® mineral lenses is unique and brought to life through an intense hydrogen burning process. The lenses are chemically tempered to ensure scratch and impact resistance, then ground to perfection. An anti-reflective coating is added to the back of the lens, canceling out stray light that causes reflection.
