GRILAMID FRAME

It is a high tensile strength plastic that will retain its shape under all temperatures. This material is impact resistant, flexible, light weight, and durable. Electric uses grilamid in all of its mold injected eyewear.

 

ACETATE FRAME

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 exclusively uses Mazzucchelli acetate for all of our handmade Italian acetate frames.

 

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.

 

MELANIN POLYCARBONATE LENS

Electric exclusively uses Bayer brand Makrolon raw polycarbonate material. All of our melanin infused 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.

 

MELANIN CR39 LENS

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.

 

HAND POLISHED MINERAL GLASS

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.

POLARIZATION

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.

 

LEVEL I: POLYCARBONATE POLARIZED

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.

 

LEVEL II: VISUAL EVOLUTION POLARIZED

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.

 

LEVEL III: MINERAL GLASS POLARIZED

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.

    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.
