After 5 years we felt it was time for an upgrade on our original and fastest frames.
The frames still have the comfort you would expect, so we decided to concentrate on the lenses and by working with Carl Zeiss a premium lens supplier and our prescription lens supplier for the shape, we feel we now have the best combination available.
Talking to Zeiss we decided to go with the latest innovative premium lens material Nylon, rather than poly-carbonate for the reasons below and getting the best base tints means when you wear these sunglasses, it is like there is nothing in front of your eyes. Basically seeing is believing! NB all the cheaper brands are the polycarbonate and frames with nylon generally retail over £100
So to clarify Zeiss lenses have Nylon/Polymide lenses which have:
- UV PROTECTION 100% Protection from UV Rays
- SHARP VISION Clear vision without distortion
- DURABILITY Excellent scratch resistance
- PURENESS Close to glass for transparency and pure vision
- LIGHTWEIGHT Lighter than standard poly-carbonate
All in all this upgrade will ensure we will continue to have one of the most competitive sunglasses on the market so our athletes can compete without distraction.
Some detail from Carl Zeiss below showing the contrast effect in action, which will certainly help you avoid those potholes on the roads!
The Mirror finish, apart from cutting down glare aesthetically look very cool.
The Primary Range
Weighing in at just 22 grams, these were the launch frames for Naked Runner.
These frames have been fully tested not only while running the 5km Park Run to, a 50Km Veleta in Granada Spain and more recently the Marathon Des Sables and the Himalayan 100-mile race and winning! Having trained, raced and cycled in them, they became the first design for our company
Since then we have tested them with cyclists and other athletes and it turns out they all love them for the same reason we do, you basically forget you have them on. They hardly steam up do not bounce when running or cycling over rough terrain and work well in all sports. One big safety feature is that they do not break if you fall off your bike, as we have seen some nasty scars from the cheap plastic frames which will snap on impact.
In addition, we have some great athletes wearing them including Mick Clohisey representing Ireland at the Rio Olympics.
The image above is Mick running the Marathon at the Rio Olympics even while it was raining! In addition, you can see our sunglasses in a range of sports, in particular, the cycling community and they are loved by triathletes, in particular, Louise Minchin GB Triathlete and BBC News Presenter. Also above is Kerry the Irish 3000 mtr Olympic steeplechaser, wearing the Blue Streak Frames with the Diamond Blue lenses a perfect match.
We have even found them in the Alps skiing and perfect for horse riding.
These Sports sunglasses have air ventilation for clear viewing. 100% UV-400 protection and very durable. The frames are made from TR90 composite material making them incredibly robust. And now with Zeiss Nylon lenses
The frames will come with a microfiber carry bag and case for added protection.
I am confident that you will be more than happy with the frames, so much so I will give you a 100% refund if you are at all disappointed.
When you receive the frames, you will notice the comfortable fit, which will wrap around your head, but also the robustness and tactile feel of the frames. There are a number of air ducts around the frames to help to keep the frames clear of mist, particularly on cold days in bright sunshine. NB the key to keeping them clear is to adjust the nose pads to ensure good airflow ie the lenses should not touch your cheekbone.
TR90 was produced through Swiss technology as a thermoplastic material that is incredibly durable, flexible, and lightweight. Glasses made with TR90 are extremely comfortable because they have a flexible quality. Since they are flexible, they can bend under pressure and contour your face comfortably.
Finally, and most remarkable of all, TR90 glasses are supremely lightweight! Even the boldest, biggest styles don’t feel bulky when made with TR90. The thermoplastic material has a barely-there feel that you truly have to wear to believe.
If you are unhappy with our products we are more than happy to replace or refund.
Also if they should break we are more than happy to replace free of charge
