Electric exclusively uses Bayer brand Makrolon raw polycarbonate material. All of our polycarbonate lenses are infused with health preserving melanin. 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.
Electric is proud to offer melanin infused CR-39 lenses. An industry first that we have developed, exclusively with our lens supplier. CR-39 monomer lenses combine the optical clarity of glass with the durability of a thermoset material. CR-39 lenses stand up to scratches, are light weight and are featured in all of our acetate frames and select wire frames.
Electric's glass lenses offer superior optical clarity, are the most scratch-resistant and have been manufactured as light weight as possible. These lenses are under 2mm thick and have been treated for increased impact resistant. These lenses are featured in all of our Level III Polarized frames.
High tensile strength and heat resistant grylamid retains shape for optimal fit. This material is extremely impact resistant while still being flexible, light weight and durable.
Electric exclusively uses Mazzucchelli raw acetate for all of our handmade Italian acetate frames. This material is aesthetically pleasing, ideal for custom fitting and pliable when heated.
Each of Electric's wire frames utilize a high quality surgical grade stainless steel. This material is non corrosive, hypo allergenic, lightweight and durable.
Base curvature references the curvature of the lens. The curvature of the lens in turn effects the amount of wrap / curve a frame has. The lower the number, the more flat the frame will be.
8 base frames are more wrapped and ideal for active settings.
Polarized lenses provide the benefit of filtering out reflected light and glare off cars, water, pavement, sand and snow. This lens works great for any activity where high glare conditions exist. Electric’s polarized lens achieves 99% efficiency in blocking polarized light waves and blocks 100% of the suns damaging UV rays, while maintaining optical clarity.
Electric’s Level 1 Polycarbonate Polarized Lens comes standard with Synthetic Melanin, providing the following benefits: glare reduction, 'relaxed eye feeling', true color perception, and scratch resistance.
Electric’s Level II Polycarbonate Polarized Lens combines the world class Level I lens, with the addition of Flash Mirror, Anti-Reflection, hydrophobic and Oleophobic performance coatings.
Electric’s Level III hand polished mineral glass polarized lens represents the benchmark for quality, performance, visual clarity, and color brilliance. Anti-reflection coating is also featured.

Amazing glasses. Super fun and great for multiple activities. The only thing better than the glasses themselves is the exceptional customer service that comes with them. Everyone should own a pair.

Best sunglasses ever! I have owned many pairs of shades in my life and these are far superior. In general, electric sunglasses are the best glasses I have ever owned. Their customer service is also second to none, any issue you might have they go above and beyond to make sure you're happy. I will be a electric customer for life!

Holy shit! These are the greatest sunglasses on Earth for checking out the surf and the local sun-kissed-long-butts. Electric, do not stop making these. They're the perfect retro style frames without looking like every other chump out there. I own 4 polarized pairs, just in case they discontinue them for some reason (which I hope they never will). As long as Electric keeps making the Hardknox, I will be a returning customer.
