Rheos sunglasses are the only complete line of sunglasses fully dedicated to our Water Junky community taking care at every stage to focus on the features that matter most to those who spend time on the water. This means you’ll enjoy the benefits of a fully-featured frame and lens at a stellar price point without sacrificing an inch on quality. It also means that just because your shades float doesn’t mean they’ll be bloated with extra buoys or air injection…they’re the most stylish, comfortable piece of gear you’ll wear. Our technology is trusted by some of the most avid sportsmen on the water.
The basic principles of buoyancy apply: when an object displaces water the heavier of the two sinks. Meaning, if 2 oz. of water is displaced and the water weighs just barely more than the object, then the water sinks and the object floats. If a second object weighed the exact same amount and displaced only 1 oz. of water and the water weighed less than the object, then the object would sink and the water would “float”.
With that in mind, our frames are made of the highly durable and ultra lightweight TPX® material. Due to its unique manufacturing process, these frames weigh approximately 30% less than similar sunglasses molded in polycarbonate while maintaining a hyper-durable structure to ensure its comfort for long-term wear and floating capability.
Since our shades weigh less and displace the same amount of water as standard frames, ours float while theirs sink.
TPX® requires no drying before molding and consequently suffers zero deterioration when in contact with water to maintain its durability over extended periods of time.
