Spy Optic has a few new full coverage, single lens models for men and a new full frame sport shade for women, some using their Happy Lens technology and some with a photochromic shading that adjusts to ambient light.

Above is the Screw, the middle of their series with a top frame. The others, called Screw Over and Screw Under have smaller or larger lenses respectively, and all can be interchanged. On this one, you get plenty of lens and frame color options, but the two top ones are the Happy Bronze with Green Spectra and the Bronze Photochromic with Silver Mirror.

They’ve branched out into headphones and Bluetooth speakers, too. Peek below for larger styles , why the Happy Lens makes you happy and some new lifestyle shades from Lazer Sport, too…


The Screw Over gets a couple more stock combos with the Happy Bronze lens, one with the photochromic lens and a few standard ones. The smaller Screw Under gets just one Happy Bronze lens combo and two standard options. But, all three have lenses available separately, so you can buy the frame color you want then add the Happy or Photochromic lenses later…or several preferred options like yellow, rose, clear or various reflective tints (purple, blue, red/orange, etc.)

So, why’s the Happy Lens make you happy? This video explains it all.


The Daft only gets two options and no aftermarket lenses at the moment. Choose from the Happy Bronze with green mirrored tint or a gray with black mirror, both for $150.


The Libra is a women’s specific design that tops out with their polarized Happy Lens for $150. The design has a smaller fitting Grilamid frame and the lenses offer 100% UV protection. Other models offer polarized or standard tints with prices ranging from $90 up to $130.


There’s even a goggle that gets the Happy Lens, which makes it great for both snow and trail. It’s called the Klutch, and we’re thinking fat biking and skiing could be a whole lot more fun when you can actually see a little contrast in the snow.

If that doesn’t make you happy, this will:

Or maybe this:


Spy has gotten into the audio business with portable speakers and headphones. The Beacon is shown above, $129.95, and will play for 15 hours at max volume while doubling as a speakerphone. It’s water and drop resistant and has dual drivers and passive bass radiators.


They also have wireless headphones and four different wired earbuds. Retail ranges from $24.95 up to $179.95. Check ’em all out at SpyOptic.com.

Lazer Way1 Lifestyle Sunglasses


Joining Lazer’s other lifestyle glasses is the new Wayward line, which kicks off with this model, the WAY1. Lens size is medium/large and uses the same premium materials as their performance cycling shades and a Grilamid frame. Retail is just $50, available now, and look for more new models soon.

These “Happy Videos” are from 2013. How new is this product? I can’t believe SPY of all companies are advertising that by wearing their sunglasses it will make you happier. Now they have lost all my trust.

Happy lens technology has been around for a little while they are just adding it to a few more frame options.
