There is nothing quite like riding a motorcycle. You are a rider, so we won't bore you with things you already know! But if you are anything like us, you love that fresh air on your face! You will either be wearing an open face, 3/4 face helmet or even a full face helmet with the visor up.
We looked high and low for eyewear we could use that gave us all the protection we needed while still feeling that breeze. However we didn't want to carry around a clear set and a dark set.
We wanted 1 pair that did it all. We wanted lenses that adapted to the light around us to ensure our visibility was perfect regardless of what time of day it was.
We wanted unbreakable lenses. Lenses that withstood bugs, rocks and debris at high speeds.
We searched for years testing over 50 different lenses until we found the set that we could put all of our trust into. But that is only half the project.
We moved onto frames, wanting our sunglasses to look classic and iconic wether on the bike or off the bike. So we came up with three designs that our fellow riding friends approved of. We ensured these frames had strong arms to slide easily between your helmet and head, while still giving you flexibility to be comfortable and sturdy enough to last.
Our lenses in the unactivated state are a category 0, which means they are legally allowed to be used while riding at night time!
WE ARE GUARANTEEING DELIVERY BY NOVEMBER 2019 IF WE REACH OUR GOAL OR YOUR MONEY BACK. NO IFS, NO BUTS. WE ARE MAKING THE PRODUCT WE WANT TO WEAR AND BELIEVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY THAT YOU WILL LOVE IT AS MUCH AS WE DO.
We are proud to announce that prescriptions are available on our clear lenses for single vision riders. Unfortunately we can't do bi or multi-focal at this stage. The usual price is an additional $99 however for our Kickstarter supporters we have dropped this to $79. This payment and preference will be finalised via email along with the style and colour of frame. Please note: Prescription lenses will be fulfilled after standard lenses and may push back delivery times.
SKRAM Eyewear is available in two colours Black or Havana which is also known as tortoise shell. Either way it is your choice of subtle or loud!
Both lenses have amazing clarity in all situations. If you tend to ride early morning the yellow cuts through fog or mist to give you the best visibility possible. We tested our eyewear through 53 of our friends and 36 of them preferred Yellow.
Everything you need without having to spend an extra cent. 50ml of lens cleaner, a microfibre cleaning cloth, a 3 piece tool to make all the adjustments you may need, a faux leather case that can be used with the key ring to connect to you while riding... and of course your choice of eyewear in 1 of 3 styles, 1 of 2 colours, and 1 of 2 lens colours. We also offer 2 years limited warranty.
Please note: As there are a variety of frames(3), frame colours(2) and lens colours(2). You will have to choose your style when the project is funded.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge was finding eyewear that we wanted to wear. There are similar solutions out there but we wanted glasses that looked just as good on the bike as it did off the bike. However after years of work we got there! The biggest challenge was finding the right suppliers of frames and lenses that we could trust our vision in! Something that we could back 100% knowing our sight was safe as long as we wore them. Our reputation in the industry is important to us, this means that we will get your pair of glasses to you or your money back!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
