In 1977 Stan Besner of Ultra Palm found the original mould for the Goliath 2 in Holland. The first colour they produced was a dirty blond, which years later developed into a black and brown model. The success of their experimental frame was brought to their attention at an Opti Fair in NYC when a client presented them with California Magazine showcasing a group of men wearing the Ultra Goliath 2 on the cover. The Success of the frame continued as many artists and celebs adopted the iconic Goliath as their signature frame. It can be best recognized being worn by DMC of Run Dmc,, Micheal Cane, Harry Carey, as well as appearing on Ace Rothstein in the blockbuster film Casino to name a few.
