    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.

    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!

    Received these for a warranty replacement since the old model was discontinued. A little bigger than I expected but still awesome glasses! I love them and as always 5 star customer service at electric! I am not sure about this new emblem though, go back to the old style! Lol keep up the good work guys.

    Great looking glasses! The finish is more subtle than the picture on the website. If you have a wide face (or big head) these will fit great. Phong with the customer service team is top notch. Electric is my go to brand for sunglasses. I've had a few pairs and they last forever.

    Electric is a company with quality products and what makes them even more great is there customer service. Joel Harris an outstanding employee went above and beyond helping me replace a minor defect more due to wear and tear on these backbone glasses, which I can not live without. I will be a life long customer of a company like this that backs there product and customers 100% of the time. Way to go Electric! Its hard to find good company's like this that care the way these guys do, this company is there employee's not just there brand. I appreciate everything, these shades are awesome!

    These sunglasses are solid. Customer Service really hooked up the love with a fresh pair of shades when I had an issue with my previous pair. Electric California is a stand-up company that cares about their Customers. I have/will for sure keep promoting the brand to its fullest.

    I must say that my customer service experience was outstanding!!! I had a pair of HOY glasses previously and have replaced them with the Backbone S model. My experience ordering my new glasses and dealing with Mr. Phong Nguyen at Electric was unmatched in quality and professionalism. I will be an Electric customer forever.

    These shades are awesome! I had an issue that Phong in customer service helped me rectify. The fit, style and color is sick - Mason Grey Tiger with grey lens - so stoked. Thanks again Phong and Electric - you've got a loyalty customer in me!

Polarization

PREMIUM POLARIZED LENSES


PREMIUM POLARIZED LENSES


Amplified light reflections on water and snow can be blinding and dangerous. If fishing, they can mean the difference between seeing your catch hook up or swim away. For a day on the beach, they can mean headaches and fatigue. Our polarized lenses are better than most. Like most polarized lenses, ours will reduce glare so that you can see clearly through the water surface, or across the glacier. Unlike most polarized lenses, ours use an injection process instead of a laminated layer. This means that our lenses will never delaminate, the most common failure of cheap polarized glasses.

We also infuse synthetic melanin in our lenses, bringing you the same relaxed sensation and high level harmful blue light protection found across our entire range. We call it OHM polar. We have found that adding an additional glare reducing layer of color coating to the exterior as well as hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings to the interior can provide one of the worlds best lens experiences available. We call it OHM+ Polar. And for those of you that want the full monty, we offer Glass Polarized, a top of the line experience that gives you clarity like you've never seen before. Hand polished, scratch resistance, with an anti-reflective coating, these glass lenses are the benchmark for quality, performance, visual clarity, and color brilliance.

Yes, we find that polarizing too.



Stops debilitating glare from reflective surfaces while driving or riding


Ability to see through glare on the water’s surface during activities such as fishing


Increased visual comfort and contrast during daily activities

NO GIMMICKS, NO DISTORTION, NO GLARE

NO GIMMICKS, NO DISTORTION, NO GLARE

When light is reflected off a surface, it becomes condensed, creating glare. Our Premium Polarized lenses cut this glare, offering you the clearest vision possible. Both Electric's OHM and Mineral Glass Polarized lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, offer 100% UV protection, and provide true color perception. High color contrast and superior glare reduction, fueled with the finest degree of craftsmanship, brings you the highest quality Polarized lenses.

Electric’s OHM Polycarbonate Polarized lenses comes standard with:



OPTICS OF OHM

Synthetic Melanin infused lenses that block harmful UV & HEV blue light, relaxing your eyes and providing vivid, crisp, clear, haze free vision.




INJECTED POLARIZED FILTER

Without the use of glue, Polarized film is encapsulated by the lens providing high color contrast and superior glare reduction.




HARD LENS COATING

A double-sided, high performance lens coating that reduces minor scratching.




OHM+ POLYCARBONATE POLARIZED




Combines the world class OHM Polarized lens with the addition of:



HYDROPHOBIC COATING
