Also known as Cellulose Acetate, is a nylon based plastic that is hypo allergenic, and has more transparency and gloss than any other plastic. Acetate produces some of the most aesthetically pleasing eyewear, which is ideal for custom fitting and pliable when heated.

Electric is proud to offer melanin infused CR-39 lenses. An industry first that we have developed, exclusively with our lens supplier.

Awesome shades! Gotta love Electric - got these as a replacement for a warranty claim on another pair that was discontinued. I've got a big head and these fit great, look fantastic and are super sturdy. Definitely get the lvl II polarized, the blue mirror is unbeatable!

I have been a loyal customer of Electric for many years due to their excellent quality, fashion sense, durability and customer service but they have out done themselves with the Backbone. They fit perfectly, the lenses are amazing and they look great! Thank you Electric for producing another amazing product.
