Many Americans like and look for products made in the USA. American steel? Tough, yes, but you wouldn't expect to find sunglass frames made from steel. Something just as strong, but lighter, and more aesthetically pleasing... now there's an idea! And that's exactly what Gatorz did.
Gatorz frames consist of 100% 7075 Aluminum alloy, the strongest and highest quality of the aluminum alloys. Because of its high strength-to-weight ratio, it is often used in rock climbing equipment, high-end bicycles, marine applications and even aircraft components.
Each frame is hand machined from a single billet of aluminum and then anodized to increase corrosion resistance, hardness, and to better accommodate the permanent coloring of the frame. The sleek wrapping frames are deceptively comfortable and the lenses are carefully engineered to eliminate distortion.
Gatorz offers a variety of unique frame and lens colors, as well as specialties like Polarized and Photochromic lenses. Select from Gatorz' aluminum models or the alternative plastic frames. *While all Gatorz eyewear would presumably pass ANSI testing, they are not stamped for safety compliance, and are therefore not endorsed as "safety glasses" by SafetyGlassesUSA.com.
