Expertly crafted from a lightweight mix of metal and acetate in a rounded pilot shape, these striking sunglasses are defined by a double-bridge detail, rubber side shields and sleek metal temples with curved acetate tips. Notice the iconic Tank Hinge – Carrera’s custom-designed feature inspired by the gasoline tank of a café racer motorbike — as well as the instantly recognizable Flag symbol on the outer edge of the frames and a discreet ‘C’ logo inside the left end tip. The slender construction is fitted with highly protective, polycarbonate lenses, ensuring the perfect balance between performance and style. The polarized green lenses reduce glare and provide 100% UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays.

Carrera sunglasses are famous for not only their history but their patented, Optyl material, a heat-hardened plastic weighing 20% less than acetate. This material results in a reduction of allergic reactions and improved fit through a memory effect that provided permanent elasticity and dimensional stability.
