Named after the Vendée Globe, the round-the-world singlehanded yacht race that attracts the most daring, accomplished yachtsmen, the Vendée is ROKA’s revamp of a classic style.
At just 25 grams, the Vendée is remarkably lightweight and incredibly durable while still delivering razor sharp optics. Like our other sunglasses, these are made for active people, and patented GEKO™ Pads on the nose and temples minimize slip retention and maximize comfort, even during the most strenuous and sweaty activity. Hidden-spring hinges offer shock absorption and optimal fit for any head size or shape. Engineered channeled air-flow combats fogging and is reinforced with carbon fiber for enhanced torsional rigidity and strength. Our impact-resistant C3™ nylon lenses deliver outstanding optical clarity and offer anti-scratch, anti-fog, anti-reflective, oleophobic & hydrophobic coatings.

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 multidirectional traction with comfort.
No matter how sweaty you get or which way you move, bounce or shake, these won’t fall off your face.
