Carrera Glasses

Carrera was founded in 1956 in Austria. With the name inspired by the Carrera Panamericana race, the brand has always endeavoured to make eyewear for high-octane, high-thrills sports; they are, after all, known for their line of ski goggles. We stock a range of Carrera sunglasses and Carrera glasses, all custom-built for tough conditions and high stakes.

As well as their sporting heritage (they've partnered with Formula 1, the Winter Olympics and the Americas Cup), Carrera has also been widely known as an innovator with materials and products. In 1964, their founder Wilhelm Anger developed 'Optyl', a revolutionary kind of lightweight plastic. Carrera used this in their eyewear to create a range of high-tech products, many of which are still around to this day. Carrera was eventually bought out by Safilo, the Italian eyewear giant whose collaborations have included David Beckham and more.

Carrera Sunglasses: Our Top 3

  • These Carrera CHAMPION sunglasses are the perfect mix of modern and retro style. As we're sure Carrera would attest, these shades wouldn't look out of place on the Alps or on the streets. With slick black full-rim frames and gold detailing, these sunglasses are a stylish yet sporty option for anyone looking for some hardy shades.
  • These Carrera GRAND PRIX 2 sunglasses are similar in aesthetic to the Champion sunglasses, but with some extra designer flair. Designed for the podium yet just as at home on a long drive, these full-rim pilot frames (complete with go-faster stripes) are a vintage classic.
  • These Carrera 5003 sunglasses are a more easy-going silhouette. Similar to Wayfarer sunglasses, these shades are one of Carrera's more casual models. Simple yet effective, these black full-rim sunglasses are a high-class, low-key pair of affordable shades.

Carrera Glasses: Our Top 3

  • These Carrera 137/V glasses are a cool take on tortoiseshell aviators. With their big round frames and classy metal detailing (see the nose bridge). These glasses bring some real retro flair to the table; their '70s-style round frames are the perfect style accessory for anyone who wants in on Carrera's sporty ethos.
  • These Carrera CA6637/N glasses mix classic silhouettes with modern materials. They're a fun take on classic rectangular glasses with the added kick of transparent frames. These glasses are a cool, modern way to enhance your style - we think transparent glasses look good on anyone!
  • These Carrera 176 glasses are another stellar retro design from Carrera. With their translucent 'smoked brown' full-rim pilot frames, tortoiseshell temples and large lenses, these glasses are an amazing way to bring understated vintage looks into your wardrobe.

zFORT™ Blue Light Block 

Let's face it - technology is here to stay. While we can try to limit our usage, we’re ultimately pretty dependent on it. However, with more screens comes more blue light. So, we've created something to help negate its side effects. We call it zFORT™. It’s blue light blocking technology. What’s that, you ask? It’s a special filter that blocks potentially harmful short-wavelength light that can damage the eye. Through limiting the penetration of this type of light, zFORT™ provides ‘fort-like’ protection to the eye. 

There are four key benefits to using zFORT™ blue light blocking lenses: glare elimination, eye strain reduction, sleep improvement and headache reduction.
