• About


We're a team of snowboard instructors, who between us have spent many hundreds of hours working and living life in the sun. Either in the snow, at the beach or on the street, over the years we've put to the test countless different brands of sunglasses and goggles in all conditions imaginable and have really got to know what works.

We’ve often been underwhelmed by the performance (and price tag) of premium brands so we decided to make our own. We design our products in the mountains and then test them in the challenging environment and harsh light conditions found at altitude so we can be sure they will perform everywhere else.

Cab9 sunglasses don't just look good, they are made to meet our high standards for durability, comfort, clarity of vision and protection from the sun.

We kicked things off in winter 2015 in our home resort of Meribel, selling our popular Cruiser sunnies to friends and local seasonaires. With demand soon exceeding expectations, it wasn’t long before we opened our online store and saw orders coming in from around the globe.

Since then we’ve added new models to the range, watched the Cab9 family grow steadily and seen our sunnies showing up all over the place, from the Alpine slopes, to beaches and city streets around the world.

We’ve been working on new products including a range of snow goggles and we’re in the process of putting together a team of talented people to represent us in the world of action sports and beyond.

We listen carefully to your feedback and we’re committed to improve on everything we do. We intend to continue as we started out, on a mission to provide great eyewear products with amazing value for money and the kind of personal service that only a small independent brand like ours can provide.


What our customers say!

I’ll be keeping these a long time

Love these glasses and the Cab9 guys were nice enough to send me a replacement arm when mine broke from ploughing my face into the snow. Great service, great glasses, I’ll be keeping these a long time.

the most comfortable and affordable sunglasses I've ever owned

I've had my sunnies for a little while now and they've been through the wars. Including multiple dips in the icy Atlantic. They're by far the most comfortable and affordable sunglasses I've ever owned. Highly recommended.

Really comfortable to wear

Love mine! They are light weight and really comfortable to wear good in the water and the snow

Now my everyday shades

I live in Oz where the sun is strong so you need shades all the time. I like my Cab9's as they wear easily and are priced well enough that I can just get a new set if I accidentally smash 'em up. Now my everyday shades.

I am a boat captain and wear them daily to protect my eyes

My Cab9 sunglasses are awesome. I am a boat captain and wear them daily to protect my eyes whilst working all day in the direct sunlight. They are extremely comfortable to wear for long periods, stylish and well constructed. I will definitely buy another pair soon!
