SunGod was born in the UK back in 2013. Alistair Watkis and Zoe Armstrong raised £90,000 from across 92 different countries to launch their first custom sunglasses model, the SunGod “Classics”. The company has now grown to include 3 models of customisable sunglasses, ski goggles and even a Snapback!
As mentioned above, I already reviewed the custom Renegades last summer. I wrote about why I believe they are better than the competition, now lets do the same with the Revolts.
Sungod have developed advanced lenses that enhance the contrast and optimise clarity in all conditions. At the time of writing they’re offering a choice of 6 refined lens tints that exceed European and American standards. These lenses filter 100% of UVA and UVB rays, and are engineered to maximise performance and enjoyment on the mountain.
Dual layer spherical lenses and a near frameless design offer unrestricted peripheral vision of your surroundings. The lenses offer a triple layer of scratch resistant coating and an anti-reflective inner lens coating reduce glare. Mind you don’t confuse scratch resistant with scratch proof.
To top it off the lenses are interchangeable via an easy-switch lens system. You’ll be able to change your lenses on the slopes when the conditions change.
Super Flexible Frames
You may already know that all the Sungod sunglasses models are ridiculously flexible and durable as demonstrated in the below GIF. Rest assured that the Sungod Revolt frames are made with the same super-flexible TPU and form perfectly to the face.
The frames contain an active vent system that optimises the airflow through 3 foam-lined upper vents and 16 circular lens vents. You need not worry about running into inanimate objects due to lens fog. That will be a story for another time.
Want a pink lens? they’ve got it. Mint colour frame? that too! On the Sungod website you will be able to choose from 4 different frame colours, 6 lens tints and 10 different strap designs. There are over 240 unique combinations.
If that isn’t enough, or if you “can’t have the same lens as someone else”, Sungod sell parts separately. You can order a second lens in order to adapt when the conditions change, or even a different strap to match a new helmet.
There are no minimum orders or setup fees to customise the Sungod Revolts. If you order before 2PM BST they can even ship the same day. Hint hint to those of you who always seem to forget your goggles at home.
Sungod provided me with this pair of custom Revolts with the green lens which is ideal in sunny/cloudy conditions. I am no expert in Ski Goggles and we had a bad year for snow down here in the south of France, however I was still able to make it up into the Pyrenees to test the mask.
I can for sure say that they were more comfortable than any goggles I have ever used before and I had absolutely no problems with fog or glare. As for vision, it really reduced the light reflection from the snow. Bye bye bloodshot eyes, and they emphasised the dips and bumps in the snow which otherwise looked flat to the naked eye. After wearing the mask for roughly 40 minutes, I didn’t notice any discomforts or marks from the mask even though I had made it very tight.
I also think that the mask looks awesome, in a world where bezels are forever being reduced, the Sungod Revolts are ahead of the game. If you think I have missed anything from the article or have a question then don’t hesitate leaving a comment below or get in touch via Twitter.
