What new trends have you seen for sunglasses in board sports for 2024?
More and more sunglasses with cycling inspiration for a few years now. To cover this market our Speed model fits perfectly. Besides you could find some timeless frames as our Journey.

What segment of your offering is selling best in 2024 so far?
Our two best-selling products at the beginning of the year are our Glacier, the brand’s iconic model for mountain outings, and our Journey model, a historic polarized model that very well supports our clients during surf trip preparations.



Have you introduced any frame shapes and colours in your 2024 offer?
In 2024, we revisited all the color options for our SPORT range and added a new product to our Glacier line. A pair of sunglasses with straight arms and category 3 lenses to complement our Glacier model with category 4 lenses and curved arms. And by the end of 2024, we will launch a new product that will be particularly suited for water-close sports activities. Stay tuned!
