Testimonials & Reviews

FROM OUR INBOX:
“The Arlo's were my first pair of Kaenon's, purchased in Baton Rouge. I tried on every pair in the display, walked outside and was amazed every single time. I personally own 10 pairs of different brand sunglasses and this pair out-performs every single pair I own. I brought them home and the next day my brother, my best friend and another friend’s father all went out and got a pair. Every where I go and people say, “I need a good pair of sunglasses” I offer them to try mine on and go outside and see the world in higher quality. I love my Arlo's and just purchased another pair of Kaenon's.” – Nic Huges (via Kaenon.com)

“My friend got a pair of Sequence and I loved them so much on him, I had to get a pair myself. I wouldn't have thought that the same pair would work so well on both of us, but they did. He has them in the grey color and I have them in gold with copper lenses. The clarity is unreal and the style is awesome, looks good on men and women.” – Sam Brown (via Kaenon.com)

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin
While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
