Electra - Electra is an electronic lens that adjusts its tint to the ambient light in less than 1 second, completely automatically and without using any battery. 

What does it actually do? 
Let’s say you are skiing downhill and it’s a sunny day. Then, you suddenly enter a shaded area. A normal lens would simply stay the same, but Electra detects the light change and adjusts its tint accordingly in less than a second, allowing you to see perfectly right from the first meters. 
Then the shaded area ends and you find yourself in the sun again: no problem. Electra detects it and adjusts its tint almost instantly. 

Electra is composed by a small solar cell that powers a proprietary chip and a special LC film. The chip works constantly to detect the ambient light and adjust the LC’s brightness accordingly.
Electra can adopt any tint from 18% to 42% of transmittance, always providing the perfect light filter. 
Thanks to the lack of battery the whole mechanism is extremely light so the goggles weight only 5 grams more than regular ones. Plus, they never, ever, need to be charged.
Electra has been elected by ISPO as best product in its category (sunglasses/ ski goggles) for the year 2021, and it was selected within the Amazon Innovation Awards as one of the 15 most innovative products in Europe.

        Ouf Of is an Italy-based startup funded in 2017 by two brothers: a physicist and a product designer.

        Both of them are passionate freeride and freestyle skiers so since the very beginning our aim has been to create products that, through technology, could make everyone’s life easier while being outdoors.

        After several smaller innovations, in 2020 we launched our latest invention: Electra

        Electra is an electronic lens that is able to adjust its tint according to the ambient light in less than a second, without using batteries.

        This technology was elected by ISPO as best product in its category (sunglasses/ ski goggles) for the year 2021, and it was selected within the Amazon Innovation Awards as one of the 15 most innovative products in Europe.

        All our products offer a unique combination of style and technological features that are always supported by data, facts and research. For example our Piuma sport sunglasses, made with carbon fiber reinforced nylon, only weight 16,8 grams.

        We at Out Of strive not only to design the best possible products, but also to have a positive impact on our society, on our employees and on the planet. In May 2021 we made our efforts official by becoming a benefit society.
