We've managed to source some pretty special cycling specific sunglasses from boutique Italian brand Power Race.
Featuring a frame made from virtually unbreakable Grilamid TR90 nylon, known for its high bend strength, low density and high resistance to chemical and UV damage. The result is a frame which is as light as it is robust, with a nosepad made from hypoallergenic compund that's designed to stay comfortable while still releasing sweat.
Ultra-thin (1.1mm) lenses continue the lightweight theme, not at the expense of durability however, with each lense being both foldable and shatterproof. No need to worry about fumbling with them on the bike then.
Complete with 3 sets of interchangeable lenses: colours / types dependent on which model you're purchasing. All with full UV protection.
All lens have an hydrophobic and oleophobic coating to prevent water and grease smears or streaks, plus outstanding anti-fog performance.
Polarized lenses - suitable for those riders who mainly ride their bikes near water, lakes, rivers, sea, pools, wet pavements, snow grounds, high mountains, sand, car metallic surfaces, vehicle glasses and windows, glasses and many other reflective natural and artificial surfaces.
HERCULES Carbon photo chromic
Lenses are purchased from the United States of America (manufactured in a ISO 9001 environment and tested by the Colts Laboratories in Florida) and go from clear (87% of light transmission) to dark grey (20% of light transmission) in only 8 seconds and from dark grey back to clear in 60 seconds. They are among the most efficient photo chromic lenses nowadays available to the cycling community.
The orange hydrophobic and oleo-phobic lenses manufactured in France, are made of MAKROLON, a material from BAYER MATERIAL SCIENCE. The Orion Surface Treatment technology (O.S.T.) with Bayer Abrasion Test Level 5, allow these very special lenses to be totally hydrophobic, oleo-phobic and antistatic. Therefore rain, mud, fat, sweat, and various types of oils do not stick at all on these very special lenses but go away very easily. This leads the cyclist to have a sharp, clear and unobstructed vision with some important
advantages such as the low maintenance of the lenses: smudges and smears wipe off easily, no smearing nor
streaking, no oil nor water/sweat smears, no blurred vision because the vision stays instead sharp and crystal clear at all times.
All Power Race frames are unbreakable, foldable and fully pliable and are all covered with a full three year warranty from the date of purchase.
