Why we chose the Dynafit Ultra Sunglasses: Lightweight, protective, stylish
When speed, efficiency and low weight are the name of the game, Dynafit are usually the go-to brand for many ski mountaineers. They’ve consistently produced some of the lightest and most innovative ski touring boots, bindings and skis on the market to make life burning up skin tracks a breeze.
When the brand turns their sights on the sunglasses market, you just know they’re going to produce something equally lightweight and efficient. Unsurprisingly, this has turned out to be the case with the Dynafit Ultra sunglasses.
Features and Build
The first thing to note about these specs is the phenomenally low weight. Coming in at a weight of just 31 grams, they weigh less than a chocolate bar. How did Dynafit get to such a low weight point exactly? Well, a lot of that is thanks to a Grillamid frame construction which makes for an extremely lightweight and flexible construction.
Grillamid is the same stuff ski boot manufacturers use to produce their extremely lightweight touring boots (we guess Dynafit have plenty of this stuff knocking around from their TLT X production). The material’s lightweight and responsive qualities make it an ideal choice.
Grillamid is also a great material to produce sunglasses with, not only because of its lightweight properties but because the flexible nature of the material means that it’s more resistant to damage and snapping. What this all means is that you can sleep easy if you’re someone who tends to chucks their sunglasses to the bottom of their ski touring backpack, and forget all about them.
