New UNSHAKEABLE™ sunglasses can be locked around ear for extreme sports or straight for top comfort. Going from a cocktail party to football game without missing a beat.
Myra Maybelle Shirley Reed Starr, known as Belle Starr or the Bandit Queen, was a notorious American outlaw. She used to ride sidesaddle while dressed in a black velvet riding habit and a plumed hat, carrying two pistols, with cartridge belts across her hips. BÆNDIT in this shape celebrates Starr’s independence, will power and resolution in an age where this was even more difficult.
FRAMES: Frame made of new generation TR-90 polymer: lightweight, flexible and impact resistance. TR90, a memory polymer material allows this frame to be incredibly light but also strong, with a resistance to deformation index of 620kg/cm2 and the ability to regain its shape.
LENSES: Custom S20 Revo lenses made specifically for BÆNDIT to work in the toughest of environments and filter out 100% of UVA / UVB / UVC. Made from Thermoplastic Polycarbonate composite for extra strength and durability.
CORE: BÆNDIT alloy core is processed and engineered to reach exceptional reversible plasticity properties. Its ductility and malleability performances allow the core of the temples and bridge to deform, hold position and move back to original when pressure is applied.
HINGES: Crystalline Polybutylene Terephthalate and Polytetra-methylene glycol compound,This two fully polymerized hard and soft segments are blended to create an Elsatomer composite that gives Bændit flexibility and the strength of thermoplastics. Each temple and nose bridge piece anchor uses this hyper resilient composite to work as a locking mechanism to the eye frame piece.
CASING: High resistance TPEE-E1 Elastomer cured and injection molded with the alloy core to be permanently bonded. The Casing provides the elastic capacity to follow the core in the deformation process and has a leading role in the last 10% of returning to its original shape.
