Lust-worthy isn’t usually a term we feel like throwing around for a pair of cycling sunglasses. We just can’t escape that adjective when referring to Rapha’s Pro Team Flyweight Glasses, however, with its ultra-sleek styling and performance-focused design making for a truly worthy upgrade from your current riding eyewear.
Clad in a design inspired by aviator goggles, the glasses combine a sporty silhouette with a minimalist aesthetic, resulting in a lightweight pair of specs without the unnecessary dressing of many current models. Apart from making you look good while you speed down the road, it boasts what Rapha claims to be “world class technical specifications” to ensure it serves all your needs while you pedal at high speeds.
With its frameless design, the Rapha Pro Team Flyweight Glasses weigh a mere 25 grams, which should put it among a handful of ultra-light glasses in the market. An aerodynamic shape ensures maximum comfort during rides, while easily swappable Carl Zeiss shield lenses allow you to quickly switch them on the road for maximum optical clarity. Do note, it only comes with the gray/bronze mirror lens, with four other colors available as separate purchases.
Features include a high-strength Grilamid frame, a low-profile hinge, rubber nose pads, and rubber temple grips. All the lenses come with UV400 protection and a high-reflectivity mirror for reduced glare, along with scratch-resistant, anti-fog, anti-oil, and hydrophobic coating.
Available in three frame colors, the Rapha Pro Team Flyweight Glasses are priced at $220.
