Surf Interview Zeal Optics Sunglasses
During the surf expo event in January 2019, we contacted Mike Lewis with Zeal Optics to show and explain what the new line of sunglasses will be about and how it is different from the other lines of sunglasses they have created. Out of Boulder, Colorado Zeal Optics builds the highest quality eyewear for people who live for the outdoor adventure. Guided with just simple sets of beliefs such as: use less, give back, and explore more. This eyewear company lives for the adventure and it shows with the quality of their sunglasses.
Let’s go over what their simple sets of beliefs mean!
This new line of sunglasses is by using plant-based materials in all the sunglasses frame and lenses.
Zeal Optics believes that living outdoors can change your life but not everybody gets to experience it. They work with inspirational adventures to the ones that might never experience the thrill of running river or the calm of a mountain top. With great projects and partnerships this company gives back to communities all over the world.
Here is our interview that we had at surf expo
Salomé: I am here with Mike Lewis and Zeal optics. And we are going to talk to you guys about the new line of sunglasses they are coming out with in March 2019.
Mike: Indeed. I can’t believe it’s 2019 already. Welcome to surf expo.
Salomé: Yeah, it’s a lot of fun here. So, what is new with this new collection coming out in March?
Mike: Pretty much everything coming out in the line in March is going to be out Zeal light which is an air infused plant-based resin. Everything is made from the castor plant. Check out how light these are.
Salomé: Wow! Its super light compared to ones that I have.
Mike: And those you have are pretty darn light as well. It’s cool with the castor based resin. You see how flexible it is. You can walk on and sit on it and it will be completely fine.
Salomé: So it wont break?
Mike: Yep! Exactly! And no petroleum taken from the ocean so that’s pretty cool.
Salomé: Will they float?
Mike: Not at the moment. But we have some great things coming up. And then the other, this is our first zeal light with our auto sunlight which is polarized chromic. So, it’s kind of like your skin, it’s gets a tan when you go outside. It goes from this yellow to a really deep orange. Awesome for the kind of dusk and dawn adventure.
Salomé: Cool! And they are all polarized correct?
Salomé: And they are all unisex?
Mike: They are indeed. I mean we got some pretty fun ones coming out. Really cool lifestyle shapes that are also going to be very heavily focused on performance, lightweight. This rubber like material will stick to your face when you get really sweaty for places like Florida.
Look good, feel good, ride good!
Salomé: Perfect! Well, thank you so much for explaining all of this. And we can’t wait for the new collection to come out in March 2019. Check it out! Zeal Optics.
