- Aspis-S - slim and smooth surface.
- Aspis-G - has notches for better grip with gloves
Option 1 - PLEXIGLAS®
The lens are made from PLEXIGLAS® which is 4mm thick.
The 4mm PLEXIGLAS® does not interfere with the camera lens at all. See here the clarity test filmed with the Aurora itself.
The 4mm PLEXIGLAS® is strong enough that it resisted multiple impacts of a 0.20 grams BBs traveling at 90 m/s (~1 joule).
In the clip a Tokyo Marui P226 was used (which according to Japan laws is exactly under 1 joule). Considering that and the safety rules of different action sports (airsoft, paintball, etc.) the shield should protect from most of the impacts.
The shield was broken when shot at with a 0.45 grams BB around 130m/s from point blank.
Option 2 - Interoptik Anti Reflective lenses
The Interoptik SuperAR lenses are treated to prevent reflexions and to prevent scratches.
Choose these lens instead of the PLEXIGLAS® if you're use-case requires better scratch resistance and less impact protection or if diminishing the reflections is imperative.
Important notes about the Interoptik Anti Reflective lens
They offer LESS impact protection and MORE scratch resistance.
They will act as a sacrificial shield upon impacts and will crack on 1J 6mm BB hits.
They come together with a quality certificate.
They can take up to 4-5 days to be made.
