SALT., a premium eyewear brand, and AETHER, known for top-tier technical outerwear, have combined their expertise for a limited-edition, first-of-its-kind line of sunglasses. Sharing an intense passion for the outdoors, the Southern California-based companies have collaborated on two frame styles—the SCOUT and the EXPLORER—both designed for the male or female drawn to adventure.
The two silhouettes were created with the motorcycle rider in mind but are sleek enough to be worn by anyone, anytime. Lightweight, beta-titanium frames feature nearly unbreakable temples that are flexible enough to be easily taken on and off while wearing a helmet. Titanium nose pads help keep the glasses in place, providing a comfortable, secure fit that requires little-to-no adjustment while in movement. SALT. + AETHER eyewear has been constructed specifically to solve the optical issues that matter the most when engaging in fast, in-your-face activities: comfort and optical clarity.
To optimize your vision, the SCOUT and EXPLORER feature windshields and an extended frame-top, reducing wind flow and peripheral sunlight by more than eighty percent. Perfectly calibrated holes in the windshields ensure peripheral vision is not obstructed. The collection offers two lens options, both with a polarized film to block glare. The first lens option also includes a photochromic filter that automatically adjusts to suit the light conditions, guaranteeing clearer vision no matter the location. The second includes a scratch-proof mirror coating that increases glare blockage. The lenses are available in a total of four colorways.
Inspired by nature’s effortless beauty, SALT. combines the best of California lifestyle and Japanese craftsmanship to create the finest in premium eyewear. saltoptics.com
