Almost every pair of my glasses that I have owned over the past years have always broken where the earpiece connects to the glasses. Either I sit on them, step on them, or take them off too fast, they always seem to snap right at the corner. I hope it is just the screw, but most times I end up needed a new pair of sunglasses.
I would like to introduce you to Aspire Eyewear. The first thing I noticed when I opened the case was there is no hard connection to the glasses from the earpiece. You know what I am talking about, where that annoying screw is that always seems to need tightening. Aspire Eyewear’s design includes a screwless hinge that allows far more flexibility than any other glasses. As far as the earpieces, Aspire calls their proprietary material SDN-4, I simply call it brilliant! SDN-4 is a specially designed nylon that is incredibly strong, light weight, heat resistance material that gives you that “barely there” feeling. SDN-4 makes Aspire Eyewear 50% lighter and 50% thinner than plastic frames, and 22% lighter than titanium frames.
Going into this, while I was researching these glasses, their slogan “barely there feeling” struck a chord with me. I like my glasses tight to my face, so I figured with their material and design it would be impossible to get a fit I liked. Instead, as soon as I put them on, I felt the difference. I could easily adjust their proprietary nose pad system so I found I wasn’t adjusting them to my face as much as I do with my regular sun glasses. In fact, I got out of my car with my Aspire glasses on, not remembering until I notice how dark the parking garage was. The lenses filtered out the bright winter morning sunlight perfectly. Those that know me well, know that “style” and my name typically do not go well together, but the “Incognito” seemed to match my personality perfectly and I will admit, added to my “style!” The Incognito features their screwless hinges, polycarbonate UV 400 lenses and your choice of colors and mirror coating. Like any eyewear company, they have styles for everyone. To find the style that best matches you, visit them online at www.aspireeyewear.com!
Aspire Eyewear truly takes “next generation” to the next level, by designing these glasses using 3D technology. This technology reduced their sample development from several weeks to 20 minutes. You will see the word, “proprietary” above many times, so if you are looking for this technology, there is only one place to go. Introduced earlier this year and distributed exclusively by ClearVision Optical, I would encourage you to take a look before you purchase your next set of sunglasses or optical glasses. If you are like me, these maybe the last pair of glasses you buy in a long time.
