Sunglass maker Kaenon announced the release of their new Kabin frames late last week. The Kabin is the first of their 2008 line to hit the market, and like all Kaenon sunglasses the new style features their top-end SR-91 lenses. Our field tests of the Kaenon glasses this year proved them to be might fine lenses indeed, so they are worth a close look if you are considering replacing those worn-out old standbys in time for spring.

New KABIN from Kaenon Polarized – Early Holiday Release from ’08 Collection
Newport Beach, CA – California based Luxury Performance™ eyewear brand, Kaenon Polarized, released KABIN™ today – the first frame introduction from the company’s new 2008 collection.
Marked by its simple and subtle styling, KABIN is a wear-everyday-go-anywhere piece that implements original, back-to-the-basics style. Designed for men – though with unisex appeal – KABIN is equally at home on the street as it is on the water, the golf course, in the mountains or wherever your pursuits may lead.
Ideal for the consumer who wants superior optical performance in a clean and traditional frame, KABIN features slender temples and modest branding. Made in Italy, the frames are injection-molded from TR-90, an advanced material that is uniquely formulated for strength, durability, memory retention and lightweight construction that ensures a consistent fit for superior performance and comfort. Ultra-grippy Variflex™ nose pads are discretely hidden in the bridge to securely anchor KABIN to the wearer’s face.
And like all Kaenon Polarized products, KABIN features Kaenon’s proprietary SR-91® lens technology, a revolutionary lens material that offers the optical acuity of the finest glass lenses with unprecedented impact resistance. Further pushing the lens performance envelope, SR-91 is an extremely lightweight polarized lens; when fused with the conservatively stylish design of KABIN, Kaenon Polarized once again achieves Luxury Performance.
Available in Tortoise and Black in both lens tint options of Grey 12 or Copper 12, KABIN retails for $199 and is RX-adaptable with Kaenon’s exclusive SR-91 prescription lenses in both Single Vision and it’s advanced Freestyle Progressive lens design.
