FUTURE'S SO BRIGHT: ELECTRIC SUNGLASSES

May 25, 2019

Electric, one of the newest brands we offer, creates fashionable eyewear inundated with innovative technology, specializing in both lifestyle and sports eyewear. Of particular interest is their golf-specific line.

We shed light on this independently owned company’s roots and what you need to know about their sweet shades.

Inspired In California, Made In Italy

Each pair of Electric sunglasses gets its roots from the sunny coast of California, with its laid back vibe yet active lifestyle. Pairing the perfect frame and lens gives the sunglasses performance with a purpose.

Once the design has been created, it is sent to Italy, where high-end materials are used to meticulously make each pair. CEO Eric Crane uses the relationships he’s built throughout his history in the industry to partner with some of the top Italian manufacturers in the business so customers know they are getting a high-end product that performs.

How can Electric sunglasses help you on the course? Let’s take a comprehensive look at what these sunglasses offer.

Frame Features

Electric’s golf sunglasses all come with the company’s Grilamid frame. The frame is lightweight and flexible for a comfortable fit. The frame is also impact resistant, in case the sunglasses fly off your face during your swing.

Electric golf sunglasses frames also come in 2 different curves, 6 Base curve and 8 Base curve. Put simply, the curve describes how much the frame wraps around your face. 6 Base curve has a slight curve for good eye coverage and fit for on or off the course. 8 Base curve is more pronounced, hugging your face during higher activity use (calling fast, aggressive swingers). The Tech One models are the only Electric sunglasses with 8 Base curve. The rest of the golf sunglasses have 6 Base curve.

Now that you know about the frames, we shift focus to the lenses.

A Look At Lenses

All Electric golf sunglasses use a Bayer Makrolon® raw Polycarbonate lens, which is light and impact resistant. The lenses are also infused with Melanin, which blocks 98% HEV blue light and 100% UVA/UVB rays for sharp vision with protection.

Lens Tints

The tint of a lens affects how much light passes through to your eyes. Darker lenses let less light through.

Grey Lens

Grey lenses are an all-round top performer, perfect for everyday use. The provide clarity and depth perception without hurting your eyes on or off the course.

Bronze Lens

Bronze lenses are one of the most versatile lenses offered. Whether you’re playing at high noon or squeezing in a quick 9 at twilight, these lenses got you covered.

Blue Lens

Blue lenses also provide great everyday use, especially around water. The lens also is ideal for very bright light.

Rose Lens

Rose lenses are the perfect lens when you’re on the golf course, especially on the greens. They enhance color and depth perception in a wide range of light conditions, helping you read those subtle contours at your local track.

Yellow Lens

These lenses are going to be best for those times after your round or during the day, staring at your computer, wishing you were playing.

Yellow lenses are best in low light, indoors or out.
