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's available in a variety of premium lens configurations and can be made in a regular distance prescription, progressives, and non-prescription readers.
The Cade’s TR 90 nylon frames are significantly lighter than industry-standard materials like acetate and polycarbonate without sacrificing strength or durability.
Patented Fit and Retention System
And forget about those painful pressure points on your nose.
Inspired by the soft but amazingly sticky feet of the Gecko, our patented GEKO™ fit and retention system features a proprietary elastomer for nose and temple pads that's hydrophilic, chemical resistant and supports multi-directional traction with comfort. No matter how sweaty you get and which way you move, bounce or shake, you’ll never have to worry about slippery frames sliding down your nose or falling off your face.
