It all begins high in the Rocky Mountains. At the headwaters of the Colorado River, lies a magical stretch of water that stretches through the desert, creating the landscapes that have drawn explorers for centuries to wonder at the power of this river to shape lives and landscapes. Before the snowmelt and rains of the high-country slip onto the Colorado Plateau, they run by Radium Hot Springs, long touted for its healing properties, Radium has become a destination for adventure seekers, fishers, rafters, kayakers and cliff jumpers. Inspired by this special place, Zeal Optics RADIUM sunglasses are your partner in the search for what’s around the next bend, and for kicking back and relaxing in your favorite spots.
RADIUM features a 6-base, triple injection plant-based Z-Resin frame with ProFlex Rubber on the nose to keep your shades in place wherever you find yourself. With clean lines and soft styling, RADIUM moves with confidence and comfort.
With its plant-based Ellume Polarized sunglass lenses and plant-based Z-Resin frame, RADIUM reduces the environmental footprint of your sunglasses on the rivers, lakes and outdoor spaces you love, all while providing unrivaled comfort, color, clarity and contrast. Ellume Polarized blocks 100% of UVA/B & C light and battles glare with its 99.9% polarized efficiency, and Ellume Polarized’s proprietary color filtration pops colors, creating vistas you’ve only seen before with Photoshop or Instagram effects. Zeal Optics’ sunglass lenses also feature a resilient hard coat to keep them scratch free, while RADIUM’s triple injection frame creates unique color combos that make RADIUM look as good as it performs in any situation.
We build sunglasses using the most premium polarized film in the world. Sourced in Japan and layered in an injected lens stack, this is truly the best lens available today. Polarization plays a huge role in keeping your eyes comfortable by reducing glare reflected off objects around you. Your eyes are more free to work the way they're supposed to, and you'all be kicking back in comfort come the end of the day.
This unique material is strategically injected into each frame to provide a soft and comfortable hold. With incredible performance characteristics this rubber can withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures ensuring that your sunglasses stay in place no matter what.
Z-Resin Bio-Plastic Frame
All of our frames are made from Z-Resin, our proprietary plant-based material from Switzerland. Instead of crude oil, our frames are made from the natural oils in the castor bean. In fact, it's a perfect resource because it's an efficient, fast-growing perennial that withstands drought and thrives on marginal lands.
Ellume Bio-Plastic Lens
Ellume Polarized is the world's first lens made using a plant-based bonding agent, thus replacing the petroleum-based bonder. With no compromise in the optical clarity or impact resistance, this lens is proof that environmental initiatives are not a deterrent to an incredible optical experience. Ellume lenses don't skimp on protection or prevention; you can rest assured that you will still be protected from UVA, B, and C as well as HEV light.
