Bajío Balam Overview

The Bajío Balam offers a generous 8-base wrap around frame that complements a variety of face shapes, while offering the ultimate peripheral visibility and sun protection. Non-slip Thermal Plastic Rubber on the nose pads and temple tips provides a secure and comfortable fit whatever the weather. What’s more to love is its durable yet lightweight bio-based material that almost makes you forget you’re wearing sunglasses. This ocean-friendly frame is designed to biodegrade more easily, despite being ten times stronger than standard plastic.

The Balam, of course, features the clearest lenses on the planet with Bajío’s proprietary LAPIS™ lens technology. This means you’ll have full protection from UV light and harmful blue light, as well as full polarization for a razor-sharp view of the water and the beasts that lurk below. The Balam is available in three sea-worthy lens colors, and we can even add your prescription — just give our Sport Opticians a call to get started!
