Tech Meets Good Times! - Spy Optics
All of this tech coming from the company that started from humble roots in California. Check out this story and get behind the brand that gets behind its loyal fans!
SPY came into being in 1994 as the brainchild of a group of over-achieving athletes and design freaks seeking new perspective through the lens of technical eyewear. This unique crew was as motivated toward creativity and freedom as they were with pushing design conventions and redefining technology, and their efforts were eagerly embraced by the burgeoning world of action, motor and multi-sports.
Taking advantage of its location, SPY employees regularly surf, skate, wakeboard, motocross, mountain bike, and snowboard. SPY is the ultimate free-spirited company, mixing assorted eclectic organic and technological elements of design with action sports and pop culture.
SPY invests heavily in research and development and regularly develops technical product with action sports’ best athletes. SPY’s strategic commitment to technology is unparalleled.
Breakthrough optical engineering advancements such as ARC™ Prismatic Polycarbonate lenses, Trident™ Polarized lenses, and the patented Scoop™ frame design clearly set SPY apart from the competition. Spy is protected by dozens of design and technology patents pending worldwide. Unlike many other sunglass brands who shoot out their frames hundreds at a time on conveyor belts in China, SPY’s styles are designed in California, genuinely hand-crafted in Italy, and undergo an elaborate manufacturing and quality control process.
Every color fade on a sunglass or goggle is hand-painted by an Italian artisan. In addition, every Spy logo on an optical product is hand-painted or hand set as well.
Today, SPY continues uniquely as a collaboration of extraordinary athletes, designers and creative people connected by a common obsession with action sports, technology, style, music, the world around us and the facilitation of world-class performance and unbridled fun. They make incredible products that go on your face, allowing you to see clearer, look cooler, perform better and be more comfortable while doing the things that make you feel most alive. They are committed to making the highest quality, most functional, best-looking eyewear on earth and supporting like-minded people and the pastimes that inform who they are and what they do.
