Clear lens version of the Classic Glasses II

The Rapha Classic Glasses II – Prescription Ready come with clear demo lenses, allowing for prescription lenses to be fitted by your optician.

Scaled down by 20%, the Classic Glasses II have a smaller frame and lens than the original Classic Glasses. A longer frame arm finished with the same ribbed gripper as used on the Pro Team Flyweight Glasses ensures a secure fit, whether worn on top of the head or in the vents of a helmet.

The frames are made from fine Italian acetate, and the frame arms are reinforced with a metal core. Handmade in Italy by prestigious acetate manufacturers Mazzucchelli 1849, this cotton-based organic material is extremely durable, and has a great feel and depth of colour. The Classic Glasses II offer a similar field of vision, and the same minimal weight, as more technical-looking styles of the pro peloton.

Please note: the Lens Sets available on are not currently compatible with the Rapha Classic Glasses II

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent glasses I have been looking for sports glasses that could reasonably take vari focals and these can, as well as looking good off the bike. These do all that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and stylish Fits well with some asjustment from my optician. Bought these so I could order prescription lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best glasses so far I wear prescription glasses. This has been a bit of a struggle to find glasses that not feel like some kind of compromise when riding. These are great. The spheric lens gives really comfartable veiwing and wide vision. They take the wind good and doesnt seem to fog easily. They look pretty good to. So best glasses so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cycling- Glasses Without That "look" The best thing about these glasses is that they are cycling specific glasses that are very purposeful but I can still wear them off the bike without looking like the Terminator. These glasses sit close enough to my face that they effectively block the wind and the lenses are just large enough to not block my forward vision or obstruct the computer. These don't wrap around as much as some of my other cycling glasses but the frames are thin enough that I never feel like my peripheral vision is blocked. The nearly straight earpieces give a nice grip without being too tight and they fit easily into helmet vents when I need to take the glasses off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great model, great material I bought this so that I do not need two glasses for normal (boring) life and cycling life. The material and model is much better than the eyeglasses I. However, to have a prescription lenses on it is not so easy. I went to two departement store level optical and find that they can not do it for transition lenses. I might have to go to a more upscale optical probably. This is the main reason why I give 4 stars rather than 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could do with a rubber nose piece! Only fault is that they could do with a rubber nose piece. The arms have small rubber touch points so why the designers didn't put an Oakley style nose piece on is beyond me. The wrap around arms are a great fit and really comfortable. The only annoying factor is having to push the glasses up on the nose when sweating hard. That said, still happy with them as the can double up down the pub too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great glasses, sadly not everyone's size! Bought these glasses with high hopes for some road-ready prescription sunglasses once I replaced the lenses only to have to return them because the earpieces are way too short for my head. Same issue with the full-sized Classic glasses as well. I would definitely reorder if Rapha offered 145 mm earpieces. These must be 130 mm or smaller.

I am nearsighted with 13.0 diopters. Is this suit for me?

Asked by: BonoHsueh
I am afraid you need to refer to a qualified optician for this answer, you may need to show the image of the frame where the lenses would then be applied.

Can I have tint colour on the lens so that I can use as sun glasses 

Asked by: Kiddomk
Hi, the Classic Glasses II - Prescription Ready contain dummy lenses so you will be able to add the lenses of your choice.

Please can you confirm the base curve of the lens? My optician requires this to determine whether my prescription will be okay. Thanks

Asked by: Stephk
Hi, the glasses have a 8 base spherical lens.
