Inspired by eyewear heritage, built for the modern rider

The City Glasses are styled for everyday living while possessing the technical functionality required of sports eyewear. Manufactured in Italy, they feature scratch-resistant, hydrophobic and oleophobic Carl Zeiss lenses to ensure excellent visual clarity, and use a bespoke two-position locking hinge system to keep them secure either folded or open while on the move. Weighing 30g, the glasses are comparable to the lightest-weight sports sunglasses available today.

The arms are crafted from galvanised stainless steel to prevent corrosion, and their narrow structure ensures unobstructed peripheral vision. The frames are made from fine Mazzucchelli Italian acetate that is both lightweight and durable. This cotton-based organic material also features on the temple grips to allow the glasses to be customised to the rider’s head shape by an optician.

Available in two shapes – to accommodate a range of faces – and a variety of colours, with ‘French Alps’ and ‘LA’ inspired by classic Rapha photoshoots in these respective destinations, the City Glasses are as at home on the road as they are off it.

Lens specification:

Grey - green lens: Category 3: 12.81% light transmittance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Great Sunglasses These are some of the nicest sunglasses made, let alone made by Rapha. The are extremely stylish, lightweight, proportionately sized, and extremely comfortable to wear. The lenses are extremely sharp and clear and work extremely well in filtering the sun. The only minor issue is if you look to the upper left, the lens appears to be smudged. Tnis is in fact the very small Rapha insignia etched into the lens. On the other hand, the insignia is an indicator of how wonderful these glasses are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit like a glove Thought they would be very similar to the Classic Glasses II, but these are in a league of their own. Hinge men and temple fit is so light weight you wont know you're wearing them. Love m

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for my commute and sourjons around town With my dismay at how flimsy my Tree sounding casual glasses are, I decided a new pair were in order. As I soon as I saw the city round glasses on the site, that was it. I knew from my previously set of Classics, what to expect and I haven't been disappointed. I do prefer the soft case to the leather pouch of the classics too. They suit the narrow temple I have so feel just perfect to wear.

Is the 42.5mm lens width correct? Seems very small, like kids glasses.

Asked by: Scott MC
These dimensions are correct. The Glasses are a more compact design than the previous Classic II Glasses that had a larger frame profile
