Trail Ready

The Beaten Paths come ready for everything from an easy stroll to the hardest efforts. Trail tech features include notches for a headstrap as well as no-slip-grip nose and temple tips.


Trail Tough

Lightweight, flexible, and extremely durable. Our premium frames are constructed of a recycled nylon blend that gives you the performance and durability you need at a lower cost to our environment.


Trail Vision

FKT’s shatter-proof polycarbonate lenses aren’t polarized because polarization isn’t what a trail athlete needs. Polarization is wonderful if you’re on the water or snow, but it can cause depth perception issues if you’re running on a trail with variable light conditions. That’s why we opt for our Trail Vision tech which provides 100% UVA/UVB protection. All lenses are treated with hydro-oleophobic, anti-scratch, and anti-reflective coatings to ensure you maintain a consistent field of view through ever-changing conditions.


Trail Goodies

Protect and clean your glasses with environmentally friendly accessories. All FKT sunglasses come accompanied by a protective case, recycled microfiber pouch, and recycled microfiber cleaning cloth.

Best sunglasses

I am 18 and live in Montana. I mountain bike, mostly downhill ,hike and run.
I got these mainly for biking and they are so comfortable and relaxed my eyes so much during activities that I have used them
for all the above.They are light on my face and don’t move with intense exercise or sweat. I also loved that a fellow
Montana person designed them. I would highly recommend them.


I bought these from their booth at the Bolder Boulder 2024. As soon as I put them on I realized how much better they were compared to the sunglasses I had on. My sister and I immediately bought a pair each. Love them so much! They don’t slip when your face is sweaty and they frames are really durable.


In my opinion, "The Beaten Path" sunglasses are top-notch when it comes to quality and style. The build of the glasses is exceptional, and they have a comfortable fit that feels great on the face. It's always a win when you find sunglasses that not only look good but also feel good to wear. Furthermore, I have always had issues with the durability of sunglasses. With these glasses, durability has not been an issue at all. from an avid outdoorsman, I could ask for a better pare of shades for the outdoors!

Stellar Eyewear

These are my new favorite shades! Bought them because they look great but the quality and performance has been next level. Lenses are as clear as German optics, frames are solid construction without that film that peels, hinges are strong and stand up to use. I just love how comfortable they are too. Thank you FKT for making such a solid value product.
