Situated at the base of the Sawatch Range of the Rocky Mountains along the banks of the Arkansas River, Salida has long been a gathering place for creatives and endurance athletes that march to their own eclectic beat. Inspired by these need to escape it all in your own way, Zeal’s new Salida sunglasses are built for speed with uncompromising style and function. This small-fit, full wrap sunglass is ready for whatever the day brings. Every nuance of the trail ahead is crystal clear through its plant-based Ellume Polarized lenses, while its Z-Resin frames, which are also made from castor-oil instead of petroleum are incredibly light and stay in place thanks to their proprietary ProFlex rubber hits on the temples and bridge. The Salida also features Zeal’s new adjustable ProFlex nose pads, so you can dial in the fit for every nose bridge, keeping them right where you want them, however long you stay out.



We build sunglasses using the most premium polarized film in the world. Sourced in Japan and layered in an injected lens stack, this is truly the best lens available today. Polarization plays a huge role in keeping your eyes comfortable by reducing glare reflected off objects around you. Your eyes are more free to work the way they're supposed to, and you'all be kicking back in comfort come the end of the day.

Ellume Bio-Plastic Lens

Ellume Polarized is the world's first lens made using a plant-based bonding agent, thus replacing the petroleum-based bonder. With no compromise in the optical clarity or impact resistance, this lens is proof that environmental initiatives are not a deterrent to an incredible optical experience. Ellume lenses don't skimp on protection or prevention; you can rest assured that you will still be protected from UVA, B, and C as well as HEV light.


This unique material is strategically injected into each frame to provide a soft and comfortable hold. With incredible performance characteristics this rubber can withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures ensuring that your sunglasses stay in place no matter what.

Z-Resin Bio Plastic Frame

All of our frames are made from Z-Resin, our proprietary plant-based material from Switzerland. Instead of crude oil, our frames are made from the natural oils in the castor bean. In fact, it's a perfect resource because it's an efficient, fast-growing perennial that withstands drought and thrives on marginal lands.

RX Ready

Our custom Digital Rx Lab ensures that you are getting the highest quality Rx lenses available. Our zero waste facility is an integral part of our GROUNDED mission that defines us as a leader within the optical industry. We believe you shouldn't have to sacrifice quality to be environmentally responsible and our custom lab is one innovative step in showing the industry just how that can be done.

Z-Lite Thin Injection

Z-Lite is our Z-Resin frame material that uses a thin injection process to allow for an ultra-lightweight sunglass frame for complete versatility no matter the activity.

Camloc Hinge

Camloc is our custom two-stage hinge that helps prevent lens scratching by locking your temples in place whether they are open or closed. This keeps them from rubbing against the lenses when you’re not wearing them.

Scratch Resistant Hard coat

Our hard coat adds a scratch resistant layer for maximum protection against everyday wear.

Adjustable Nose Pads

We know your unique and our adjustable notepads conform to your face for a lifetime of comfort. Focus on what matters and leave the rest to us.
