Shockingly light and packed with performance technology, the Cade is one of our lightest and smallest frames.
Borrowing from our award-winning performance sunglasses, the frames of the Cade feature ultra lightweight TR-90 nylon frames, which are lighter than acetate or polycarbonate, nearly unbreakable in daily use, and impervious to chemicals. They have an integrated titanium core wire that allows you to bend the temples for more comfort and retention. The Cade also features our propriety GEKO™ technology, both in the temple grips and in our patented, interchangeable nose pads. GEKO™ is a hydrophilic compound designed to get tackier when wet or sweaty, which helps our glasses stay in place when you're active – working out, hiking, bending down to pick up the groceries, or playing with your pets or kids.
At the end of the day, all of this tech is meticulously engineered to deliver the performance you'd expect from sport glasses without having to look like you are about to head into a professional cycling race.
The Cade is assembled by hand at our own optical lab inside our Austin, Texas, headquarters and is available for direct purchase. It can also be made in non-prescription sunglasses, non-prescription readers, a regular distance prescription, progressives, and prescription sunglasses.
