Coming out from Hibernation

And we’re back! Summer is the ‘royal we’ I’m referring to. Damn that feels good. Corvus has been hibernating. Well, if you can spending as much time splitboarding in the backcountry with www.wreckboards.com and @splitsville , as well as having a side consulting project doing a massive rebrand of a beer company, hibernation, more like off season!

We’re free now! Free for summer. Free for the last of the spring slush. Free for the first of the summer waves!. Bring it all on!

Fall Crawl Rides Again!

Ten years ago Mt Pleasant had fewer restos, pubs and hot spots but was always a spectacular night out. We would invite all our circle of friends out for a night visiting all our favorite haunts: The Reef, Locus, Purple Crab (RIP), Army Navy (aka Legion), Public (RIP), Zigz (RIP, now Hyde), The Whip and sometimes the ANZA (technically off Main but legendary Mt Pleasant).

With Rememberance Day Nov 11th the last stop is always the Cenotaph for Memorial Services and the rest of the day to recover from the envitable hangover.

Join us EVERY NOVEMBER 10th as we’ll be on Main Street visiting all our favorite haunts!

Here’s a itinerary we found from 2005’s Fall Crawl!!!

Summertime and the living is easy

Whoa, a record string of weather has kept Corvus busy all season. Despite a short sideline due to ACL reconstruction we’ve been signing up new retailers ( Moule, Grassroots and Much and Little for instance) and doing pop-up shops (next one is August 24th Viva. Vancouver smack in the middle of downtown Robson and Granville!). Thanks to physio that includes cycling to the beach for water walking, the new knee is almost back kicking it.  Just in time our favorite time of the season, late summer!

Rise and Shine

Whoa, were did the winter go? I love that season because we get outside doing things like this…

Some late season turns in our backyard Coast Mountains with my best buddy Pete.

We’ve had a good run of those so now it is time to fire up the sun and get you all some shades. I hope you all had an epic snow season. Let’s reminisce with some beverages at the beach.

 

Rx is possible with Gill, Drift and Newmad of the ‘Family Edition’

We’ve been working on this for awhile now and finally can offer special models of the Gill, Drift and Newmad with interchangeable lenses and the ability to get your own prescription lenses fitted!

Models that have interchangeable lenses and Prescription ready

You asked for interchangeable or Rx compatible frames and we got ’em. We have the Drift (Tan, Chocolate and Black), Gill (chocolate) and Newmad (chocolate) in our online shop soon (email us if you’re super keen to try them out).

Today we can send you a pair and you can get your preferred Optometrist to get lenses with your Rx and in the correct shape. You will love how light the bamboo frames are on your face but be certain to remind your lens fitter to be careful as the natural fibres are not as flexible as oil based plastics so it needs to be just right.

Temple of Corvus Fittings Gill frame has a small cut and screw

The cut is aligned with the grain and barely noticeable but when you unscrew it you can safely swap lenses, either the ones we include or your own Rx lenses

Maybe you’re just living in a climate (like Vancouver) that warrants some dark polarized lenses for our awesome summer (August) and then some lighter tints for the grey days of the rest of the year. We refer to our lighter lenses of the Auburnd Faded Gradient and the Auburn Polarized as ‘Vancouver Specials’. Ideal for any light condition and guaranteed to ameliorate your outlook on any day!

Here’s a look at the Gill from below where you can see the very small hole with the screw that enable you to swap out the lenses

The Drift (and the Newmad) have the seam in the middle of the frame so that only one screw is required

The Drift and the Newmad have only one screw that holds both Lenses in place with the seam barely noticeable as it is in line with the grain of the bamboo
