Tonic Polarised Eyewear added two new high-fashion frame styles to its range of high-performance sunglasses: the Torquay and Cove. “The new models are for people who want all the Tonic performance, but prefer a more cosmopolitan style,” said Tonic founder Doug Phillips. Mr Phillips said the new models were available with the same range of lens options as Tonic’s original fishing styles, including grey and photochromic copper in Tonic’s UltraOptic lightweight glass lenses. All Tonic models incorporate the latest Japanese optical technology, including unique de-centred VistaView lenses for distortion-free viewing at any angle. Tonic’s scratch-resistant UltraOptic glass lenses are just 1.8mm thick, making them 30% lighter than regular glass, and have MultiCut full-spectrum anti-reflective coatings. The range includes eight wraparound styles, including Evo and Rush with ClikStrap removable safety strap.

Price: RRP $259 with UltraOptic glass lenses
