Maui Jim’s are a favorite around here at the office. Josh has a special affinity for them out of all of us. However, I have an affection for sunglasses that are a bit more “rugged” and or have a bit more meat to them. When the pair of Surf Riders came in, I was smitten and claimed them quickly. Surf Rider is a new frame style from Maui Jim that offers sleek contours and perfect views. The high-grade injected nylon, lightweight and tough with superior fit and comfort with Modified, rectangular frame compliments a range of facial shapes
The lenses are a neutral grey that is perfect for especially bright, direct sunlight. As with almost all Maui Jim’s, the Surf Riders offer a rich color and contrast along with the highest available light production, unlike ordinary grey lenses that flatten light evenly across the spectrum.
In every pair of Maui Jims you’ll find their patented, color-infused lens technology that wipes out 99.9% of glare, 100% of harmful UV and boosts color via specially designed lens treatments. They say your view is clearer, with crisper contrast and amazing brilliance and call it PolarizedPlus®2. Durable. Scratch resistant. Twenty percent thinner and lighter than standard laminated glass lenses. I call them “amazing”!
Made of a high-grade injected nylon, the frame is lightweight and tough with superior fit and comfort. The frame sports a high-gloss finish with anti-corrosive hinge spring that provides flexibility and offering a secure, comfortable fit for various face shapes and sizes.
Of course it has the always handy Maui Jim case and cleaning cloth included. the Surf Riders run $219 and can be purchased via their website. I honestly would say check them out if you’re in the market for a rugged, high quality pair of sunglasses that continue to reek of style and sassy.
