Ride the elevator with Jason Bolt, founder and CEO of Revant Optics:
You buy a pair of sunglasses. You wear them. You break or lose them. You pay another $200 for a replacement. It’s an endless, expensive cycle, and a terrible waste.
In 2010, I started Revant Optics in Portland, Oregon, after a mountain bike crash busted the lenses of my favorite sunglasses. When I couldn't find replacements, I ordered some directly from the factory and received 200 sets, keeping a few, selling the rest online in record time, and building a business. Since then, Revant has spent nine years focused on mastering the premium lens replacement business.
With the launch of Revant Eyewear, we've built on our core competencies in design, engineering, and manufacturing, while bringing our world-class customer support. Our new eyewear collection is the direct result of feedback from more than 500,000 existing lens customers who told us what they liked and what they didn’t like about their current sunglasses made by other brands. We want ours to be the last pair they ever buy.
Our three styles of performance sunglasses—full frame F1L, ultralight S1L, and aerodynamic S2L—will be the first and only eyewear on the market designed to be optimized and revitalized for life so that they continue to perform as well on day 10,000 as on day one. How do we plan to do this? By incorporating the best design, engineering, materials and manufacturing with the best customer service team in the industry.
The sunglasses come with a lifetime warranty and a repair program, and every piece is replaceable or repairable. Plus, if you lose them, you get 30 percent off a new pair.
Our top-of-the-line Elite polarized lenses bring razor-sharp clarity. And our proprietary MaxGrip imprinted temple sleeves and nose pads are made from antimicrobial material that are supremely comfortable and stay put when wet.
