Serengeti Sunglasses: A Clear Transition

April 14, 2014
Posted by David

For sunglasses that keep their cool in the hottest temperatures, it has to be the Serengeti range of sunglasses as they’ve ruled the roost of transitional and photochromic eyewear for almost 30 years. They’re both edgy and cutting edge, with so much scientific research at Serengeti’s disposal. For the past three decades too, they’ve been crafted by the hands of some of the eyewear world’s top designers.

Serengeti sunglasses are a sight to behold for drivers and aviators whose eyes are tired of the sun. They work so well because each pair is made with photochromic technology and combine beautifully with Spectral Control, a revolutionary way of blocking UVA/B rays from damaging your eyes. The lenses can be made in Polar HD materials too, polarised to resist glare while reducing the weight of the sunglasses and greatly improving lens strength.

Serengeti sunglasses are perfect for high-glare activities like fishing, driving and flying with optional Trivex frames to make them as strong as the lenses. They’re held together beautifully by spring hinges, meaning the Serengetis can take a lot more strain around the eyes as well as over them.

Influenced by Italian styles of sunglasses, the frames come in some incredible collections with unique takes on the likes of aviators, touring glasses and sports cuts. They’re available with various prescription lenses and the same care and attention that goes into every pair of Serengetis.

Serengeti technology was first started in 1902 when Corning’s patented Serengeti windshields blocked distracting blue light and let through red, yellow and green light (or ‘driving colours’ as they called them). Since then they’ve always pushed the envelope and have done for driving and flying glasses what the likes of Oakley have done for sports performance.

The variety of materials on offer is immense, with nylon, acetate, titanium and patented Trivex frames available. They all provide lightweight alternatives to competitor’s frames and boast incredibly strong curves and hinges for maximum durability. These are truly traveller’s sunglasses for all the strength and character you would want to take around the world.

A first for Shade Station, we’re glad to have Serengeti on board and are looking forward to their latest ranges on offer. We hope you are too, and that you’ll discover a pair of sunglasses that help you capture a moment as beautiful as the frames you’re wearing.
