The Carrera brand appeared thanks to Wilhelm Anger, known as a designer of sports glasses and a big fan of high speeds. He was inspired by the legendary Carrera Panamericana car race, the track of which was considered one of the most risky in the world.
The initial specialization of the company was precisely ski paraphernalia - helmets, masks, sports goggles. But later, after development of the innovative material Optyl, with its flexibility, lightweight and hypoallergenic properties, the brand portfolio was replenished with sunglasses for everyday use, as well as with improved collection of sports models.
They were much more weightless than previous versions and had the Flexolite memory effect: when the product was deformed, it could be heated with a hairdryer to 100 degrees and the previous shape could be restored. Due to a special coating Carrera glasses fit perfectly, do not slip and fall off. The Carrera bright frame colors and striking designs have an unparalleled fashion aesthetic. These glasses are suitable for people whose self-confidence and vitality is part of their personality and philosophy of life.
Each eyewear model is designed with the utmost care using cutting edge technology. Meticulous attention to detail, following fashion trends while maintaining a light vintage style make Carrera glasses truly unique.
The first collection of Carrera eyewear was inspired by the "Carrera Panamericana" race and featured distinct sporty lines and aggressive catchy design. Now, years later, the inherent character of unstoppable freedom, determination and lack of fear of risk is transmitted through the bold and innovative design of the brand's eyewear. For 50 years, the company has been actively pursuing research in the field of design, advanced technologies in optics and the use of unique materials providing maximum protection, safety and comfort for eyes in all conditions.
Most of the brand's frames are made of the patented material Optyl which is lightweight and very comfortable to wear.
