Article One: timeless active sunglasses

Five new active styles produced in hexetate, released this week

From Article One, the 2022 ACTIVE collection features five unique designs, including a revival of Article One’s best-selling style, the Moon. The timeless silhouettes are produced in a material called hexetate, a patented acrylic resin with superior technical and mechanical properties offering flexibility, enhanced shape memory even when exposed to high temperatures, lightness, and durability. Compared to most performance eyewear that utilizes traditional acetate and TR-90 plastic, Article One explains that hexetate is also a sustainable choice compared to some traditional materials as it requires less processing thereby reducing carbon footprints, and excludes BPA, DEP and toxins. Above: the Moon in the ACTIVE collection, a bestseller at Article One

Each style in the summer collection is constructed with CR39 polarized lenses with backside anti-reflective coating that blocks 100% of UVA/UVB rays and prevents road glare. The frames also boast signature adjustable nose pads, rubber temple tips, and spring hinges – a combination of features which make these frames particularly well oriented for active lifestyles.

The 2022 ACTIVE collection also includes a frame named The H – a unisex, moto racer-inspired frame which will donate 100% of profits to The H Foundation to support general cancer research. For further information visit
