A good blend of style and comfort, Keanae offers a mix of retro fashion with ultra light modern comfort
If your eyes love it light, they may like Maui Jim’s latest offering – a pair of sunglasses that feels like ‘pure air’.
Adding to its collection of five PureAirTM styles that feel like ‘pure air’, Maui Jim introduces ‘Keanae’, one of the lightest sunglasses in the world. Keanae features Maui Jim’s MauiPure lenses – the world’s clearest non-glass sunglass lenses. The lightest lens in the Maui Jim portfolio, these lenses have waterproof and oleophobic coatings to shed water and repel smudges, as well as proprietary CLEARSHELL® scratch-resistant coating to reduce scratches.
“Keanae’s retro look not only makes a fashion statement, but it can also withstand a spin on your two-wheeler, a run at lunchtime, a wave at the beach or the breeze of a convertible.Whether you secretly long for a return to hippie fashion, or you’re going for the intellectual look, Keanae’s round shape makes a signature retro statement that’s been updated with a modern marbled flatness,” said I Rahumathullah, Managing Director, Maui Jim India.
The ultra-thin and ultra-light Grilamid TR90LX frames of Keanae are made of a thermo-plastic that is known for its durability and ability to retain its shape, even when the material is flexed. The sunglasses come in colourations that slightly mimic the look of camouflage with aggressive mottled detailing, black/grey tortoise with neutral grey lenses; olive tortoise with HCL® bronze lenses, and red/black tortoise with Maui Rose® lenses. The frames of Keanae have fixed saddle-style nose bridges, but hidden behind them are adjustable rubber nose pads that add comfort and stability for most active outdoor undertakings. The sunglass styles also have embedded rubber at the ends of the temples for added gripping power. Maui Jim’s traditional pin hinges are anti-corrosive and attractively hidden for a seamless, unicolour look. The sunglass style can also be made with prescription MauiPassportTM lenses.
All Maui Jim lenses are distinguished by the company’s patented nine-layer PolarizedPlus2® technology that cuts 100 per cent of UV rays and 99.9 per cent of glare from above, below and behind each lens. Maui Jim claims to be the only company to use three rare earth elements and other treatments to white-balance its lenses, resulting in true colour vibrancy. PolarizedPlus2 technology also increases definition and depth perception. All Maui Jim sunglasses have been recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin. Proper UV protection is critical, as ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun plays a significant role in the development of skin cancer. About 86 per cent of melanomas and 90 per cent of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to the sun’s UV rays.
