After our first successfull Kickstarter campaign in 2016 we went back to the drawing board with an idea of making a brand new collection of sunglasses. The idea of making the perfect Aviator-style sunglasses made us both very excited and we decided to quickly turn the idea into reality. After a lot of back-and-forth about the look, what materials to use etc. we finally came to a decision and are now proud to present our new prototype to you.
As we just reached our second stretch goal we now have unlocked the third one. Because we love our backers and want to show some extra appreciation we have made our very own leather anchor bracelet with our signature symbol. These will come in black, gold or gun metal to match your TITAN's. All of you that have pledged or are about to pledge for our TITAN sunglasses will get these FOR FREE!
More info in the stretch goal section.
Since we first started our own brand about 2 years ago we have always kept the same objective: to beat the market prices while using the best materials possible. While most sunglasses out there are easy to break and/or are being absurdly over prized we went out to try to find a way to make our sunglasses as durable as we could, while at the same time keeping them as delicate as they should be. We decided to go with titanium.
Titanium metal is the top material of choice in the aerospace industry due to its high strength-to-weight ratio As it also owns extreme temperature and corrosion resistance, we figured that it would be the ideal material for us to use.
As shown above, our titanium aviators comes in three different colors - Black, Gun metal and Gold. As a backer you can choose the one that you think will fit you best. If you have a hard time choosing we also give you an awesome package deal where you can mix the color of frames and lenses as you like!
Besides just giving our aviators a cooler look, the color we use has a protective function. This new technology we use as coating of our frames is super strong, have a high antioxidant capacity and is much healthier to our environment to produce.
We all know how important it is with good packaging and how happy we get when we recieve a gift where the package feels at least as exclusive as the content. We have tried out a whole bunch of different boxes in the search for the right one. One that gives the right protection as well as the right look. Every pair of our Titan sunglasses comes with an exclusive PU leather box that easily can be folded so it does't take up any space when you have your shades on!
The lenses might just be the most important part of a pair of sunglasses. And what good would they do if they didn't match the high quality of the titanium frames? We have searched long and hard to find the right lenses and are proud to present the optics for our Titans.
First off we use 7 layer polarized lenses that effectively reduces glare, eliminating dazzling light reflection and scattered light which makes the vision more soft and clear. The polaroid lenses have seven layers composite materials with UV400 ultraviolet ray standard. This means that they block all wavelengths of light from 400 nm, which covers all of the UV spectrum. The first and last layer features a clear and durable scratch-resistant layer to avoid any damage you expose them to.
Besides the quality of the lenses we wanted to highten the diversity so that you can give your Titans a more personalized look. The solution was to design them so that you safely and easily can change the lenses yourself. With bunch different colors of polarized lenses you can give your Titans a new look every day of the week!
If we reach our goal we will open up some cool stretch goals, starting with 2 more awesome lens colors to choose from. The next stretch goal will be revealed as soon as the first one is reached.
We do not settle for mediocre. We do not believe that we would gain anything in the long run if we would over-price our products, using cheap materials and fine words. We believe that if we put ourselves out there with products we can be proud of, knowing that all the time and effort we put into them
In return for your support and belief in us we offer some great rewards. Besides our new exclusive Titan collection, we also give you the chance to get our previous collections with great discounts.
First of all, all of you! We would't be what we are if it wasn't for Kickstarter and the fans we have recieved through the community. We have built lasting bonds through medias like these and are grateful for being able to bring ideas into reality and to live in an age where this is possible.
We are on a mission to show you all that there is more than the big corporations out there. That you don't have to pay such high prizes just because they are established brands. We try our best to promote and provide our products at a fair price and by selling directly to consumers through social media and our own website we can accomplish just that.
This campaign is yet another steppingstone and on this road we have come in contact with a lot of awesome people that were happy to work with us and together make something we all can be proud of. This project wouldn't be what it is today if it wasn't for them and we are delighted to introduce them to you further.
