RiPel water beading technology

All Compass Sunglasses feature RiPel because having good vision when wearing sunglasses depends on both the optical quality of the lenses and the condition of the eyewear. ZEISS RiPel is a coating that repels dirt, water, and oil that help keep your glasses clean and free of smudges so you can enjoy clear vision all day.

RiPel coating

RiPel™ is a transparent hydrophobic & oleophobic technology that offers three different properties in one single coating:

  • Water & oil repellent: Dirt, water, sweat, salt, oil, sunscreen, and dust slide off the lens surface easily, ensuring clear vision and protecting your eyes.
  • Anti-smudge: Lenses are resistant to fingerprints and other contaminants.
  • Easy to clean: Whenever a lens with RiPel gets dirty, it is extremely easy to clean.

RiPel™ is ideal for cycling and other outdoor activities such as sailing, fishing, golfing, skiing, and also suitable for everyday use.
