Electric re-engineer classic designs which have stood the test of time, integrating modern technology to make a product which performs as well as it looks.

Premium eye protection is assured thanks to the use of the natural pigment Melanin to not just filter out 100% of harmful UV radiation, but also up to 98% of blue light which can cause long term damage to the eyes without altering colour perception. Optional polarised filters eliminate practically all glare from reflective surfaces, making them an essential choice for use around water.

Electric Sunglasses - Frame Materials

Frame Materials

All Electric frames on RxSport are made using grilamid frame material, a thermoplastic boasting a range of physical benefits. High tensile strength and heat resistant grilamid retains shape for optimal fit. This material is extremely impact resistant while still being flexible, lightweight and durable. An excellent material for active lifestyle frames, injected grilamid is crafted into an eclectic choice of shapes, from highly wrapped sports-style designs to edgier, flatter models.

6 Base Curve

Base curvature references the curvature of a lens. The curvature of the lens in turn effects the amount of wrap or curve a frame has. The lower the number, the more flat a frame will be. Perfectly suited to the lifestyle aesthetic, a 6 base curve frame provides essential protection to the eyes, while maintaining a sharp look that makes a bold statement.

8 Base Curve

The curvature of the lens in turn effects the amount of wrap or curve a frame has. The higher the number, the more wrap or curve a frame will have. 8 base frames are more wrapped & are ideal for active settings. These frames provide greater coverage, with the lens sitting closer to the eye, giving improved protection from the elements.

Melanin Lens Filtration

Melanin is a natural pigment found throughout the human body. Its role is to protect us against damage by filtering UV and blue light from the sun. Melanin acts like SPF 140 for you eyes, protecting against crows feet, prolonging retinal health, and improving visual clarity and contrast to relax the eyes. It is the best natural defense against the harmful effects of the sun.

While UV rays are most harmful to eye health, they do not reach - or hardly reach - the retina. On the other hand, blue light is the most energetic part of the visisble light spectrum, and this light radiates the retina all day long. Recent studies have revaled such rays could damage the retina in the long term, meaning blue light protection is essential.

Where competitors lenses simply offer 100% protection against UV light, Electric's Melanin Lens Filtration technology gives the added benefit of nearly complete protection from harmful blue light.

Polycarbonate

Every Electric sunglass model in the RxSport range utilises lightweight, and impact resistant polycarbonate as its lens material. Electric exclusively use Bayer® brand Makrolon® raw polycarbonate material for their lenses.

All of Electric's polycarbonate lenses are infused with health-preserving melanin. This premium polycarbonate material is extremely light weight, has excellent visual clarity and definition, and provides 100% UV and up to 98% blue light protection.

As an added benefit, polycarbonate also boasts superior impact resistance to other materials such as class, which are more likely to crack or shatter upon impact. This means you can use your Electric sunglasses with the confidence that they will stand up to the test of an active everyday lifestyle. The added optional benefits of Electric's Premium Polarised Lens technology make this lifestyle eyewear some of the most protective on the market.
