Carbon Fibre Sunglasses

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2015-12-05

And you thought your titanium frames were light! These Grafton Carbon Fiber Sunglasses are manufactured using carbon fiber reinforced polymer that is also widely used in motorsports, performance outdoor sporting goods and in aerospace due its high strength-to-weight ratio. This allows for the frames to be both light, scratch resistant and extremely strong. By molding the frames under pressure, it ensures that the functional properties of the carbon fiber composite is maximised. The design also features robust stainless steel hinges and polarised lenses which includes a variety of advanced optical features to protect your eyes, reduce eyestrain, and allow you to see the world in the clearest way possible.

Review from Kickstarter
I received my glasses, a month or so ago - and forgot at the time to comment on here.
I'm very happy with them, in terms of what they are - carbon fibre handmade sunglasses.
However I did imagine they would have been gloss/lacquer coated from the campaign, which they weren't - and also there are sanding marks in a couple of places which I would have preferred not to be there. Also I've no case yet, but it has been promised 'later'. So to sum up, I'm very happy to finally receive the glasses, but thought they would have been finished better. That said, they are handmade and I guess the odd imperfection is to be expected. I have happily (and carefully!) worn them this summer so that's good. Hope you all get your glasses soon, I'm sure despite the delay Grafton will eventually deliver.

Review from Kickstarter
I got a PM after my last message here offering me what I can only assume was somebody else's order (if I changed my order a reward could be sent out ASAP). Didn't actually see it or reply. Food for thought though - Funded Jan 9th 2016. Today is May 6th 2018.
858 days between. 612 if you drop the weekends.
Going down the pledge list I see ~140 pairs to be made and sent out.
So, say 4.3 days to make each pair to have met backer demand by today.
That is basically one pair per work week. (5 day week)
And that assumes you can only make one at a time which is obv not true (earlier pics posted show concurrent work). @creator so? update? progress?

Slim to none. I don't think they've delivered more than a handful, and it's been quite some time since the last update - so consider this dead.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi,
Does anyone know exactly how many pairs have been made/shipped? and how many more pairs they have to make to fulfill all the pledges?
I backed this hoping to take the sunglasses on holiday in June 2016... what are the chances of me being able to take them on holiday in June 2018??

Review from Kickstarter
I've heard nothing yet, but was probably one of the last backers (pledged on last day!)
Any news yet, or an update on schedules Grafton please??
David
Review from Kickstarter
Another month down so what, another 1, maybe 2 pairs made??
Can anyone (not Mat-M-G, sorry - you are so fast in defending them that I kinda wonder about your loyalties) confirm that glasses are actually still being shipped to backers? Anybody received anything?

Hi all, my glasses arrived over the weekend, and very smart they are to. I'm very happy with them. They are finished to a very high standard.

Review from Kickstarter
Two years since this project was funded. Would be nice to hear when it will be completed and products delivered. My two email inquiries (asked 1 year apart) have yet to be answered.

Review from Kickstarter
It would be nice to hear or receive email updates to the backers you haven’t yet shipped glasses too. This is pretty ridiculous that it’s taken this amount of time, to still not receive anything. Or even an apology as to the time it’s taken to have these made.

Review from Kickstarter
There's a recent post on their instagram of 30 pairs of frames in progress. They're getting there.

When are we getting our glasses? I have gotten plenty of promises (like a year ago already) and still no glasses received... Any news???

Hey, what’s up with shipments? Kinda ridiculous the amount of time I’m having to wait for these

Review from Kickstarter
The developer logs on every few days and posts lots of juicy pics on Instagram, but no decent updates on here for a long, long time... Please can we have some meaningful comment, grafton industries? Some of us have been waiting almost two years now, it doesn't seem very fair... :(

The worst part about this whole thing was that I paid more to upgrade lenses I’m never gonna get.

I still didn't receive mine as well. Why no body is updating us here.
Darren Wishart
Review from Kickstarter
Does anyone have any idea how many pairs have been made & sent?
I was expecting these for my holiday last year (July 2016) & it doesn't look like i'll be wearing them on holiday this year (Sept 2017).
Can Grafton actually do the decent thing and provide the backers with some updates!?
Randall sam
Review from Kickstarter
So what's the current status of orders? If I'd have known I wasn't gonna receive my product in a timely fashion or with proper communication I would have not backed. Shouldn't be taking you all so long to do this
Anthony burton
Review from Kickstarter
Arrogant assholes. Take my pair and shove them. I don't want your junk. Consider my order cancelled. You are a disgrace.
tim wong
Review from Kickstarter
Well it actually happened, I received my reward. The finish is not very uniform, it is definitely hand made which doesn't bother me since it adds a bit of character, but there are quite a few dings and nicks which is quite disappointing. The lenses don't seem that high quality (a bit hazy) and some of the coating is already chipped. The frames are also not carbon fibre at the corners where the hinges are which is a bit jarring. The hinges are quite ugly, and not very well designed since you can't fold the arms down without pinching the arms. Surprised the CF case is still not ready considering it would be much simpler to fabricate? On the positive points they are quite light at 20 grams, and fit quite well. Was it worth the £65 and year+ wait? Yeah just about. Will it last or fall apart like Svetoslav Popov's pair? We'll see. Some quick shots: http://i.imgur.com/0jI0iQt.jpg

Review from Kickstarter
Agreed, Mat M-G. I've been really patient and not at all angry like others over this delay, I was probably one of the last to pledge money to this project so thought I'll bide my time and keep quiet on the timescale and questions, I understand sometimes things take a while and don't go as smooth as hoped. I will admit that it is dragging on a bit now though!
It's great to know that you're still working on these and hopefully all pledges will be fulfilled, I can't wait to have my glasses - but can you give us backers that are still patiently waiting the information that Mat has requested please? Would be good to know if we will get them this summer. Look forward to an update soon. Cheers, Phil.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, great to hear that you're still around. I understand that you can't give each of use definitive dates, however, could you please give us some idea of progress to date? How many you've finished, how many to go and what sort of rate you're churning them out at? Thanks.

Same here. Promised delivery in two weeks, now months later, no reaction from them and no delivery. Was a bad idea to give these guys my money.

Review from Kickstarter
It's been just over 12 months since I was told my glasses were almost done and would be sent in a few weeks (they even provided proof http://i.imgur.com/fjLDilF.jpg ) but I still haven't received anything or had any response to my messages since then. They can show all the pretty pictures they like in their 'updates' but as you can see it means nothing.

Svetoslav Popov
Review from Kickstarter
I am visit here to complain again, without demanding or expecting anything though. I just write this to protect any future "customers". After 2 or 3 months in a drawer, my glasses got completely stuck to the textile pouch they came in. I tried to separate them from the cloth, but broke them in the process. Ugly stains formed upon the lacquered surface where the pouch was stuck to it. I do not sorry at all about breaking the rim, because I realized how brittle and low quality it is. It breaks like match sticks and I cannot imagine it being carbon fiber at all.

Review from Kickstarter
Holy Living SH*T these are so rad! I just got my glasses today and they are incredible! They are TOTALLY worth the long wait and I am so pleased with them. I love them so much I'm ordering more from them. These things are incredible. I can't believe they were able to make these by hand. with a hollow core none the less. I don't know how you did it, but hot damn you did and I'm super stoked and totally impressed. I've been working with carbon fiber for years and I'm amazed you guys were able to pull this off. THANK YOU!
