The Sandy Beach Story
These rimless, polarized, polycarbonate sunglasses are named for the well-loved Sandy Beach in Oahu. Like the ocean activity mecca of their namesake, these frames are durable and comfortable enough for all levels of activity. The Sandy Beach sensibly combines modern fashion with comfort, providing an ideal design for engaging in sporting activities or watching a surfing competition along Oahu’s North Shore. This Maui Jim Sport model was designed for those consumers who have sporty or active lifestyles and want the added protection of a lightweight, 8 base frame.
The Maui Jim Sandy Beach frame has a refined rectangular shape that is perfect for any sized face with a heart or oval shape. The Maui Jim Sandy Beach frame is composed of the Grilamid TR 90LX, a light, durable polymer with extreme bending strength known for retaining its shape. The use of the Grilamid TR 90LX is perfect for longer wear time. The frame contains a fixed saddle style bridge with non-slip rubber on nose pads for comfort. The Sandy Beach also contains an anti-corrosive stainless steel pin hinge, complete with a nylon resin coating, making it strong and lightweight. Additionally the frame has a paddle temple structure for a snug, comfortable fit, perfect for use during sports. The fit details are 56 eye, 15 bridge, 130 temple, and 8 base curve. The frames are finished with a gloss texture for a sleek look. Available frame colors are gloss black and tortoise which has two available variants.
The Maui Jim Sandy Beach frame features the famous Maui Jim PolarizedPlus2 lenses that eliminate 99.9% of glare, manage 95% of HEV and block 100% of harmful UV, while boosting color to unmatched levels.
