Costa just dropped its 2022 spring/summer collection – just in time for warmer temps and summer activities. The first wave of frames is more technical and angler-inspired, Reefton PRO and Tuna Alley PRO. These legacy frames are getting several PRO-level upgrades for long days on the water.
The second wave is Lido. Italian for beach, Lido is a new hybrid frame with technical chops and a more modern, west coast style. The third wave of new shades includes two lifestyle frames, Salina and Paunch. The Salina and Paunch are perfect for the beach, traveling, and exploring the city with detailing inspired by a boat hull.
With a focus on style and performance inspired by the vibes of the Pacific shores, this frame is ready for anything the water sends your way. Lido comes with top and side shields to help keep light from leaking in, and the vented, Hydrolite nose pad and temple tips keep your frames locked in place and help prevent fogging. The lightweight, plant-based Bio-Resin frame reduces the carbon footprint of each new pair and maintains the durability standards required for long days on the water. The Lido comes in Costa’s color enhancing, polarized glass, and polycarbonate lenses. From east to west, for watching waves or riding them, Lido’s there for the adventure.
Costa Reefton PRO
Named after the iconic New Zealand fishing town, Costa’s classic Reefton frame just got some serious PRO upgrades – SIX to be exact. The large frame loved by anglers now carries our new PRO Series fit and features to keep your frames locked in place and vision clear so you can focus on the fish. Sweat channels and eyewire drains move sweat and water away from your eyes, improved Hydrolite grip on the nose pad and earpiece keep your frames locked in place, the fully-adjustable and vented nose pad offers a customizable fit and helps reduce fogging, top hooding and side shields keep light from leaking in and metal keeper slots prevent your frames from going overboard. The polarized, color-enhancing 580 glass lens is scratch-resistant and cuts haze and blur for superior clarity and definition. The frame is built using Costa’s lightweight, plant-based Bio-Resin. Bio-Resin reduces the carbon footprint of each new frame and maintains the durability standards required for long days on the water. Updated styling for the Reefton PRO includes a larger lens size for an increased field of view. The Reefton PRO brings next-level performance to anglers so they can stay out on the water longer and fish harder.
