With the Barra, Smith decided that performance doesn't have to be plain. With street style that works on the water, Barra is a trendy design that ticks all the boxes for fishers. Large coverage combined with the frame's integrated side shields keep intense light out, while ChromaPop polarised lenses as standard block glare to keep vision crystal clear, even during the brightest weather.
Performance doesn't have to be boring when it comes to your sunglasses. For the cool kids who fish we created Barra - a medium fit, large coverage frame designed for performance on the water and style on the streets.
ChromaPop Lens Technology
Through their proprietary ChromaPop lens technology, Smith help you see detail and colour beyond normal capabilities. ChromaPop filters two specific wavelengths of light that cause colour confusion. By doing this the lens delivers greater definition, more natural colour, and unmatched clarity to allow you to see more detail.
The eye's retina has trouble distinguishing between blue and green, and red and green light perception.
ChromaPop filters these specific crossovers, allowing greater definition, natural color, and clarity.
Other Lens Features
Repels moisture, grease, and grime. A barrier between your lenses and the world. Water will bead up and disperse without streaking. Smudges from fingerprints are wiped clean easily. Applied as standard to all lenses.
Polarisation cuts glare. Glare from surfaces like water and asphalt decreases depth perception and reduces visual acuity, causing eye fatigue. Polarised lenses filter out 99.9% of this 'visual static' for a finely tuned view of the action.
Vacuum-applied anti-reflective coatings on the back side of the lens eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections, boost UV protection and improve the external look of your frame by dampening internal reflection.
Evolve Frame Technology
To enjoy the outdoors we each need to do our bit to preserve it. Smith recognise their obligation to be considerate of the environment by using Evolve - a groundbreaking a frame material which has allowed them to manufacture bio-based frames which make absolutely no compromise on performance or comfort.
Smith has found the correct balance of materials required to sustain performance and durability, while reducing their environmental impact. Over 53% of every frame using Evolve is derived from the non-GM castor plant. Characteristics of Evolve frames include flexibility, lightweight, high elasticity, remarkable toughness, and excellent chemical resistance.
