Founded in 1985, Revo are one of the biggest names in sports and active eyewear and the leaders when it comes to polarised lens. Amazingly, some of their earliest designs featured lens technology developed by NASA as solar protection for satellites, which led to the development of their renowned crystal clear Polarcast lenses.
Over the years, Revo have become a firm favourite with celebrities, athletes and sports stars thanks to their amazing glare-proof performance and sleek style. In fact, Revo represent a range of athletic ambassadors and have collaborated with some very famous faces that you may recognise.
Here are just a few of the celebs who love to wear Revo sunglasses:
Brand ambassadors don’t get much cooler than rockstar Bono. The U2 frontman has become the face of Revo’s Buy Vision, Give Sight campaign, which aims to reduce vision impairment and blindness in more than 5 million people by 2020.
Bono is the perfect person to represent this cause, as he suffers from eye problems himself and always wears sunglasses to protect his eyes. Recently, his sunglasses of choice have, of course, been by Revo. We’ve spotted him in several of the brand’s styles, including this pair of aviators with Revo’s signature Blue Water Serilium lenses.

Ricky Gervais is a huge social media selfie fan and recently, his snaps have revealed his love for Revo sunglasses. These distinctive wayfarer shades with reflective blue lenses have been showing up in several of his Instagram shots, including this one outside of the famous Abbey Road Studios.
Ricky’s sunglasses look like the Revo HOLSBY 351019 sunglasses with mirrored blue lenses. These stylish shades feature a double bridge design and a unique black woodgrain-effect frame.
Aside from rockstars and comedians, Revo has attracted attention from some big names in the world of sport. Tyler Seguin is a Canadian NHL ice hockey player and a huge fan of the brand, as you can see from this post in which he named Revo sunglasses as one of his favourite things.
Here, Tyler is modelling the Revo Kingston RE1009 sunglasses against an idyllic beach backdrop. His shades of choice feature a retro-inspired design with a contemporary twist. Aviator-style frames are made from thick plastic with bold metal browbar and nose detailing and Revo’s blue polarised lenses complete the look.

Sailor and Olympic gold medal winner Dorian van Rijsselberghe is a big adventure lover, so it’s no surprise that he wears Revo’s optimum performance shades to protect his eyes wherever he goes. Whether he’s sailing on the sun or exploring beaches, he’s hardly ever seen without those instantly recognisable blue lenses.
Here, it looks like Dorian is wearing the ever-popular Revo PHOENIX RE1015 sunglasses. The modern aviator-shaped design features plastic frames and metal accents on the browbar and temples.
Jimmy Chin is a professional photgrapher and climber, and the official face of Revo sunglasses. In this Instagram post by Revo, Jimmy reveals that his go-to style from the brand are the Bearing sunglasses because they’re lightweight, stable and offer great coverage in every season.
The Revo Bearing RE4057 sunglasses feature a streamline and sporty design with comfortable plastic frames and a sleek, full-cover shape. Polarized Serilium lenses provide clear vision in bright conditions. Find them in a range of colours online at SelectSpecs.
