CARREA 5436 Water & Ice

sun rays on the office wall

The mystery of the breaking sunlight is always a great influence on the technic of the lenses and the frames around. It was always a great challenge for product designers to develop the ultimate sun ray protection for the eyes and find a perfect design around the lenses to stay in fashion and keep up the usability in sports and everyday life. The perfect example for this combination is the Carrera 5436 Water & Ice the ultimate sport glacier sunglasses. Futurstic design, great elegance and super light make them a timeless piece of beauty.

CARRERA MOTOCROSS 70s

CARRERA MOTOCROSS GOGGLES 1970s

The last days we got an interesting email from Italy, from Justyn who is now living in Turin (we think its about the better weather in Italy) and was designing sport goggles for Carrera in Vienna in the 1970s. It was the time of Serge Kirchhofer’s Carrera prototyping and the famous Mx Riders like Ake Jonsson, Bengt Aberg, Arne Kring, Torsten Hallman, Torleif Hansen, Keith Hickman, Bryan Wade, Dave Bickers, Sylvain Geboers, Paul Friedrichs
and many others, so Carrera goggles won many World MX Championships.

It was the time of new ideas, exotic racing bikes from Italy and the years when the Austrian brand was top in Ski- and Offroad Rracing. Always great to get in touch with a contemporary witness of this period.
