Salt Optics and Aether Apparel have teamed up to create shades that look cool and yet still are suitable for action sports.
These sunglasses keep glare and wind from entering the sides, but manage not to block peripheral vision. Salt’s double-layer Zeiss lenses are also photo chromatic – adjusting tint according to light conditions – as well as polarised, to keep out the glare of reflected light.
Housing the lenses is a flexible and durable beta-titanium frame, with the entire kit handmade in Japan. All this combined make the sunglasses perfect for anything involving a lot of sun and wind – mountain biking, most winter sports, boating.
The downside to these cool action-ready sunglasses is the price: US$600.
