Harry Alonzo Longabaugh, better known as the Sundance Kid, was an outlaw and member of Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch in the American Old West. Together with the other members of “The Wild Bunch” gang, the Sundance Kid performed the longest string of successful train and bank robberies in American history. BAENDIT in this shape celebrates the Kid’s nomadic spirit and carefree approach.
FRAMES: Black metal frames made of new generation in-mould electric welded stainless steel structure with nickel free plating. Hand brushed finishing and laser engraved.
LENSES: Custom S20 Black 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: Each temple and nose bridge piece is hand cut and 4 (temples) to 8 (nose) safety pins are hand welded to the main structure to work as a locking mechanism to the eye frame piece.
CASING: High resistance Silicone-Rubber Elastomer cured and injection molded with the alloy core to be permanently bonded. The Silicone casing provides the elastic capacity to follow the core in the deformation process and has a leading role in the last 5% of returning to its original shape.
