100% Legere Sunglasses

In developing UltraCarbon for the Hypercraft performance line, 100% engineers were able to integrate the ground-breaking technology into the Active Performance range with two new Legere models: Legere Round and Legere Square. Weighting just 17 and 18.5 grams, respectively, these new styles bring all the benefits of UltraCarbon technology to all-day eyewear. With a truly weightless feel and precise fit, Legere with UltraCarbon is perfect for the everyday athlete who’s always on the move, whether at work or play.

Developing UltraCarbon™ technology for the Hypercraft® model led to expanding the benefits of its strength and weight savings into our Active Performance range with our two new Legere models.

Utilising the same UltraCarbon™ technologies and process, 100% designed the Legere to be the new everyday favourite sunglasses for active and style conscious athletes. The unisex design of the single shield lens is enhanced by the detailed etching around the perimeter, giving it a unique look while being so lightweight it feels as if you’re wearing nothing at all.
