Explorer Sunglass

This exclusive sunglass—a collaboration between AETHER and Southern California-based luxury eyewear brand SALT.—is designed for the male or female drawn to adventure.

Created with the motorcycle rider in mind but sleek enough to be worn in the city, the slightly square frame boasts lightweight, beta-titanium frames with 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 motion. To maximize visibility, the EXPLORER features windshields and an extended frame-top, reducing wind flow and peripheral sunlight by more than 80 percent. Strategically sized holes in the windshields ensure peripheral vision is not obstructed.

The lenses have both a polarized filter to block glare and a photochromic filter that automatically darkens to suit the light conditions, guaranteeing clearer vision no matter the location. The inner lenses also have a polarized filter and mirror coating that increases glare blockage. SALT. + AETHER eyewear has been constructed specifically to solve the optical issues that matter the most when engaging in fast, in-your-face activities: visibility and comfort.

Color options include traditional silver (TS) with black tortoise side shield and photochromic/polarized G15 lens; brushed gold (BHG) with brown tortoise side shield and photochromic/polarized brown lens; black sand (BSG) with black side shield and photochromic/polarized grey lens; and black sand (BSB) with white side shield and inner mirror/polarized brown lens.

Sharing an appreciation for timeless design, classic style and meticulous production, SALT. and AETHER have created frames that look as good in the outdoors as they do in an urban environment.
