First, let me begin by saying I am not a RedBull drinker. I have tried it once and can’t stand the taste or that edgy feeling that remains when the taurine wears off. That being said, I love these sunglasses!
Beyond the drink, RedBull is an active lifestyle brand that combines edgy fashion with high performance materials. RedBull has taken materials used in Formula-1 racing and applied them to eyewear. The outcome is fashion, comfort, and durability.
Frame Materials include XMP, TR90, Carbon, and Stainless Steel This is what makes the collection so cool!
XMP (Xtreme Matrix Polymer)- The world’s most advanced thermoplastic from Formula 1 was transferred to the eyewear collection and offers outstanding benefits such as extreme lightness and flexibility. As far as I know, RedBull is the only company out there that uses this material!
TR90- is a thermoplastic granulate made for lightness and flexibility. It is used by many luxury brands, such as Tag Heuer.
Can it get even more technical and sophisticated? With RedBull , than answer is always , why not?!
The lenses are made of a material called XNL ( xtreme nylon lenses) This is the same material that Formula 1 racing uses on their visors in their helmets. It is
- extremely light
- 100%UV protection
- Superbly clear optics
And better yet, all of these lenses can be made with your prescription, with mirrored coatings, and the RedBull Racing logo monogrammed on the lenses!
So if you enjoy technical design, sophisticated materials, and an all around bad ass look, than RedBull Sunglasses are for you. What a great gift for those active , bad ass Dads who take life by the horns!
