Rascal Optics are a brand spanking new company, crafted by seasonaires, for seasonaires, so whether you’ve done a season, 10, or just wish you had, you can rock the seasonaire style where ever you are!

We’ve all been there, two weeks in and your goggles are scratched from one too many bails in the park, your sunglasses disappeared at apres (somewhere between buying that first round of jagerbombs and deciding it was a great idea to start dancing on the tables..) and you can never have enough caps or beanies! 

 Lucky for you, we’ve got you covered on all fronts…

 Magnetic Lens Goggles

 At Rascal Optics HQ we have created what we believe to be a thing of absolute beauty, our top quality goggles have everything you’ve ever dreamed of in a perfect pair; with magnetic changeable lenses, interchangeable straps and flexi frames – all this without the hefty price tag!

You can chop and change your lenses all you like – if you’re riding from first lifts to last call, there’s no need to stop or accidentally drop a glove off the chair lift as you faff with your “easy to change lenses” ours pop on and off without the need to get frostbite on your fingers!

With 10 magnets the whole way round the frame, each holding with 2700g of force and flexi frames adapting to every movement, they won’t let you down if you pop off a side hit and mess up the landing!

We know – its tough to decide which ones are more beautiful, good thing you can snatch yourselves a pair for just £18 on our early bird discount offer! We know… we’re too good to you… 

Wooden, Polarised Sunglasses 

Excuse us whilst we swoon… We’re so in love with all of our products here at Rascal Optics, it’s what we’re passionate about and every little detail involved in each of our products has to be perfect or we simply wouldn’t sell, promote or more importantly wear it ourselves! But we’ve out done ourselves here.. with The Ralphsters! 

Stained Wood Ralphsters
Stained Wood Ralphsters

They are precision CNC milled from a solid piece of bamboo, with laser etched Rascal Logo, they’re hand finished, fully polarised with flexi hinges so they’re versatile, comfortable and long-lasting… and as if that wasn’t good enough for you.. They float! Say goodbye to that sinking feeling as you watch your sunglasses disappear into the depths below! 

Natural Wood Ralphsters

Each is unique due to the natural grain of the wood, and we offer two different frame and lens colours to suit any style. You won’t find this quality of design and finish anywhere else, especially not for this price, so grab yourselves a pair asap!

Who are we?

We’re Steph and Jade.. AKA Rascal Optics co-founders! We’re both serious winter sports enthusiasts Between the two of us we’ve done more seasons than you could count on your fingers! Its pretty safe to say that 9-5 isn’t really what gets us up in the morning! 

With all these seasons under our combined belt, we’ve worked our way through enough goggles and sunglasses to buy a house and despite testing almost everything out there, we have never really found what we thought was great value, incredible quality and style. So we decided to team up and put our joint knowledge and expertise to good use, designing products that we loved and delivered everything our fellow skiers, boarders and adventurers would need from their equipment.. and so Rascal Optics was born!

Meet Steph

I did my first season in France at the tender age of 18, but having skied my whole life, the mountains are my true home and I haven’t missed a winter since! This year I’ve ventured even further to get my snow fix, currently in Australia working as a ski instructor, because one winter season a year just isn’t enough! I have always liked to keep my mountain wardrobe fresh and colourful, and I love having options when it comes to my optics, one set of goggles for a season just isn’t enough! I’ve used this extensive knowledge (or what some would call addiction) to eyewear to make sure Rascal are only delivering the best there is!

 Meet Jade

My first season was also when I turned 18, back in those days I was a summer baby through and through, only beach life would do! Working as a sailing instructor in Greece is what got me hooked on seasons, as well as a how important a good pair of sunglasses really are, whether you’re out on the water or up a mountain, they have to be polarised! I lived from summer to winter seasons for years, where my love for the mountains (and snowboarding!) grew, along with my hat collection! 80% of my suitcase is dedicated to my beanie / cap collection, so I’ve put all that love into every hat we’ve designed here at Rascal Optics, from our initial samples till now!

Why we need you! 

We’ve put all of our knowledge, passion and dedication into making Rascal Optics happen, in an incredibly short space of time. We have continually tested our optics in every weather condition, including indoor ski slopes to make sure they don’t fog, slip or pop off at crucial moments. We’ve also put both styles of sunnies to the test to make sure they’re up to the challenge of protecting your eyes, whilst you get on with enjoying your adventure, whatever that may be, without them getting scratched or slipping off your face! We’ve rocked our Sunglasses whilst mountain biking, longboarding, land-boarding, running, sunbathing, the occasional dip in the sea… Seriously, it’s been really tough guys! 

We’re so proud of our products and we can’t wait for you to be able to get your hands on them too! We’ve designed, tried and tested all of our products, now we just need to get them out there so everyone can enjoy them, which is why we need you, with your help we can launch our first ever range and get everyone living and riding like a Rascal!! We’re offering you one time only discounts in return for your support, as well as being part of the Rascal Optics Founders Club, meaning Rascal discounts for life!
