For 7 years our sports sunglasses have stood the test of time, not only being one of the best running sunglasses on the market they are one of the fastest with 2hrs 15 mins for the marathon.
Over the years we have made very slight changes and therefore concentrated on the lenses which have been upgraded. They still have the comfort you would expect and by working with Carl Zeiss and our prescription lens supplier, we now believe we have the most superior lenses on the market with more coverage and clarity than the original design.
You do not have to take our word for it you only need to read our reviews.
Talking to Zeiss we decided to use the latest premium lens material Nylon, rather than poly-carbonate which is like there is nothing in front of your eyes. NB our photochromic lenses do use polycarbonate and are produced exclusively by our lab in the UK
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 looks very cool.
Weighing in at just 22 grams they have been fully tested in the field not only while running the 5km Park Run they have done a few ultras including the Marathon Des Sables the Himalayan 100-mile race and winning!
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 as they are made from TR90 so if you fall off your bike, our frames will bend rather than snap, we have seen some nasty scars from plastic frames as they are like blades when they break.
In addition, we have some great athletes wearing them including Mick Clohisey representing Ireland at the Rio Olympics,
even while it was raining! In addition, you can see our sunglasses in a range of sports, including the cycling community loved by triathletes, particularly Louise Minchin GB Triathlete and BBC News Presenter. Kerry O' Flaherty the Irish 3000 mtr Olympic steeplechaser and now Natasha Cockram a UK 2hr 30" Marathon runner
We have even found them in the Alps skiing and perfect for horse riding.
The frames will come with a microfiber carry bag and a case for added protection.
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.
If you are unhappy with our products we are more than happy to replace or refund.
Also if the frame should break we are more than happy to replace it free of charge
