BSpoked: "Lets be honest, finding a great pair of shades without breaking the bank is nearly impossible. Elliot Havok Eyewear felt the same way and decided to be a part of the solution."
GearHungry: "Elliot Havok sunglasses, for instance, sport real Rosewood arms on spring-loaded hinges and 9 layer scratch-proof lenses with UV protection and a polarized core - features that typically come at a steep price."
Elliot Havok sunglasses were designed to be practical, affordable, as well as fashionable. It promotes modern sophistication without compromising comfort by combining subtle, but distinguished styles in ergonomic wood and gloss/matte designs.
Designing Elliot Havok SmartShades
We felt the need to design a quality pair that is less mainstream plastic and more refined, as well as practical.
Utilizing aspects from classic designs and reinventing couture,
We designed the first line of Elliot Havok.
Offering 3 Frame Colors
Your pledges on kickstarter will contribute to the production of 3 types of frames.
Each frame will retail at $109.00
- Rogue - Matte Black w/ Polarized Lens
- Prestige - Gloss Black w/ Polarized Lens
- Architect - Gloss Black w/ Clear Lens for Prescription Use
Each pair will also include a 30 by 30 centimeter (about 12x12 in.) microfiber pocket square used to clean the lenses.
- Winged Temples to prevent slipping forward
- Curved Contours to fit all heads
- Rosewood Temple Arms to provide optimal durability and pliability
- Unique Grain Patterns and etched logos for each pair
After numerous assessments on a variety of woods like birch, oak, and cherry, it was decided that rosewood had the most suitable strength, pliability, texture and grain patterns.
Taking these aspects into consideration, we engineered Ergofit temple arms that can be effectively worn on all heads.
9-layer Polarized UV Lenses
Some designer shades charge hundreds of dollars to manufacture plastic frames with polycarbonate lens that only prevent cracking, but Elliot Havok provides 9-layer polarized UV lens.
9-Layer Polarized UV Lens
These consist of :
- 2 Shock Absorbers - to prevent cracking or shattering of lenses
- 2 Waterproof Anti-Scratch Layers - to maintain clear vision
- 4 UV Filters - to fully protect against harmful ultraviolet radiation
- 1 Polarized Core - to provide optimal contrast and glare reduction.
We join these parts with steel spring loaded hinges that outfit the sunglasses with ample durability and flex during wear.
After numerous assessments on lumber, plastics, and lenses, we have finished designing and testing for a final prototype. We can now start production of the frames for the public with all of your help.
This is where indiegogo comes in. We need funding for manufacturing, packaging, and logistics. With your support, we can start large scale production of the frames, lenses, and temple arms. But more importantly you'll be helping to give an innovative start-up company a chance to provide fashionable, affordable products.
Help today, to make eyewear smarter, tomorrow.
