Carrera sunglasses are engineered for performance and were originally popularized by Formula 1 Racing and the Winter Olympics.

China. Carrera crafts many of their sunglasses at their Chinese facility using patented OPTYL plastic for superior durability and performance. OPTYL will retain or “remember” its original state and return to it when heated to a specific temperature. The lightweight plastic also resists extreme temperature changes and is favored by winter sports enthusiasts.
Not all Carrera sunglasses are polarized. While some offer polarized lenses, all Carrera shades offer 100% protection against the sun's UV rays. Additional lens options available in Carrera sunglasses include polarized, non-polarized, mirrored, and gradient tinting.
