From Athletes for Athletes
From Athletes for Athletes is not just our claim, it is the core of our work. There are many sports glasses and also many signature editions of famous athletes and personalities. But the cooperation is limited to whether the star looks good with the glasses, nothing more.
If you turn into the finish line on the last meters and suddenly the sun blinds you, you can no longer see contours in the terrain while touring, or the rain suddenly starts during match ball and your glasses begin to tarnish, then the best style won't help you. This is exactly where you need an Athletes.
We develop our sunglasses in close cooperation with top athletes who know exactly what challenges their sport entails and what features a perfect pair of sports sunglasses must have. Which lenses are best suited? How should the glasses fit? Do I need interchangeable lenses? We combine the answers to these questions with the perfectionism and many years of experience of our development department and create sunglasses that give you a perfect sports day.
Yes, of course, our glasses are still stylish and modern, of course. But anyone can do that, right?
Partner. In sports.
Our cooperation with top sports does not end with the development of first-class sports sunglasses. We are a proud partner and exclusive outfitter of the Olympic Team Austria and also support more than 20 top athletes in their daily commitment to new best performances. The partnerships with our athletes are extremely important to us, because we love people who stand up for their cause with full passion and an irrepressible perfectionism.
Fair products. Designed in Austria.
