GATORZ SUNGLASS GUIDE



"I've owned 4 pairs of Oakley sunglasses in the past 5 years. All of them either broke or the lenses got scratched so bad it was cheaper to replace the pair of sunglasses vs buying new lenses. I'll for sure recommend Aluminum Eyewear to anyone versus buying Oakley's anyday". - Kevin Gianoli


THE GATORZ FRAME

At the heart of every pair of Gatorz is T6 7075 Aluminium frame, a strong, fatigue resisting material developed back in 1936 by Sumitomo Metal (now Mitsubishi). The unique properties of 7075 allow Gatorz to stamp their frames from a single sheet of material in a process they developed, perfected and later patented. From here they can bevel out material to hold the pressure mounted lens and then attache the arms.

Although super lightweight and strong, Gatorz frames are pliable, meaning you can adjust them to get the perfect fit and they won't break. In fact they can take a lot of abuse and keep on rolling.

7075 has proved itself as a very reliable and strong material since it's inception, so you can be rest assured that Gatorz sunglasses will serve you well.

GATORZ DURABILITY

Gatorz 7075 frames ensure they will last for many years but obviously there are other parts to consider. Its common place to find owners who have had theirs 10+ years!

Each frame features a dual sided 5 barrel hinge mounted via a classic 4 rivet assembly. It is an extremely robust hinge design which will continue to work as designed in the harshest of conditions, think mud, water etc. Personally I've never had a hinge fail but should one give up, they can be replaced!

Nose-pads are made from non fading silicone and provide plenty of grip. All Gatorz sunglasses are covered by a Lifetime Warranty program and a comprehensive repair service is also available which ensures you'll get the maximum bang for you buck!


"The wraptor blackouts I purchased are unf'ing believable. Their quality is second to none! The fit, adjustability are perfection. Light with a nice snug wrap around fit. These glasses are the only choice, worth every penny!" - Cody Drabeck


HOW GATORZ ARE MADE

Every pair of Gatorz eyewear are forged from 7075 aluminum right here in the U.S.A. Watch the video below to see how it's done.


GATORZ CERAKOTE

A number of Gatorz frames are available with a custom cerakote finish which enhances the frames impact resistance and anti corrosion properties.

What is cerakote? Cerakote is a proprietary ceramic based finish which can be applied to a variety of surfaces including metal, plastics, polymers and wood. It's a popular finish on weapons and military hardware.


GATORZ TRU-RAY LENSES

Gatorz offer a variety of lens choices which are available in most of their frames. Whilst they've reduced the amount of lens colors available compared to years past the lenses on offer today are the best they've been. 

In fact, the quality of the lenses is a consistent message we hear back from our customers!
