GRILAMID FRAME

High tensile strength and heat resistant grilamid retains shape for optimal fit. This material is extremely impact resistant while still being flexible, light weight and durable.

 

ACETATE FRAME

Electric exclusively uses Mazzuccelli raw acetate for all of our hand made Italian acetate frames. This material is aesthetically pleasing, ideal for custom fitting and pliable when heated.

 

WIRE FRAME

Each of Electric's wire frames utilize a high quality surgical grade stainless steel. This material is non corrosive, hypo allergenic, lightweight and durable.

This premium polycarbonate material is extremely light weight, has excellent visual clarity and definition, provides 100% UV and 98% Blue light protection and boasts superior impact resistance.

 

MELANIN CR39 LENS

    Hands down best FRAME and LENS on the market. I am always hearing compliments and selling electrics when I wear these. I ordered mine with glass polarized lens and I am so glad I did. I LIVE at the beach and have sensitive eyes so i am picky about my glasses. I have switched all my friends and family to wearing these things. Detroit XLs are great looking on females and males!

    The best everyday shade I've ever owned. Perfect for the beach and on the mountain. Especially ltd edition TROUBLE ANDREW series! with the loveless emblem on one arm and a dagger on the other. So dope..
