Made by runners, for runners
We have our sunglasses custom-manufactured for us, so we can provide features we, as runners, know are important for us.

All our frames are custom-made with one of several plastic grades. We prefer plastic to meetal because it's lighter, and can be moulded to shapes that fit more tightly around your face. The result is glasses that sit tight when you're running, and don't bounce on your face with each step.
- Polycarbonate. Our standard frames are built using high quality polycarbonate material that can stand up to all the abuse you can give it.
- TR90. Our more premium sunglasses use the latest advanced material available for sunglass frames. TR90 is highly flexible and durable, and even lighter than Polycarbonate. The arms bend without breaking, which prevents damage in those fatigued times when your sunglasses are in your pocket and you plop down after a hard run.
- Non-slip, co-injection-moulded nose pads.
- Non-slip, co-injection-moulded temple pads.
- Customized imprinting with team, or event promotional logo.
Our lenses come with a variety of different coating combinations, depending on the product. We vary these coatings depending on the needs of our customers, and the intended use and price-point of the sunglass. All our lenses are made of high-quality, shatter-resistant polycarbonate material. Then, we add:
- UV-400. We believe strongly in UV protection, and all our lenses will come with UV-400, which provides in both UVA and UVB wavelengths.
- Anti-fog. When cool sunglasses hit warmer, moist air, they'll tend to fog. You'll have experienced this when you go from your air-conditioned house to run outside on a muggy summer afternoon. Many of our lenses have an anti-fog coating to prevent this.
- Scratch resistant. When you sweat a lot, you clean your glasses a lot - often with less-than-optimal cleaning cloths. (Haven't we all tried to dry our lenses with our wicking fabric? Of course.) Our scratch resistant coating acts as a shield to prevent as many of the small scratches as possible, to extend the life of your lenses.
Though it may sound unusual, we don't do a lot of polarized coatings, for two reasons: 1) Technology prevents both polarized coatings and anti-fog on the same lens. We think anti-fog is more important. 2) Price. Polarized lenses are important when you need to see in the water fishing. Yes, it reduces eye strain a bit, but for running glasses that are going to take abuse or get lost, we prefer to keep our prices low.
