An updated take on a traditional round aviator, this unisex style model “Split I” features TAVAT Eyewear’s patented and trademarked hinge and a unique double-barrel top-brow which resembles their temple – it’s within the small details that allow you to stand out. Each of their Ex-Cam frames is given a unique name inspired by the world of aviation: “Split” is taken from “Split S” which refers to an air combat maneuver mostly used to disengage from combat.
