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 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 wide variety of faces, the City Glasses are as at home on the road as they are off it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality frames, tasteful styling My optician was impressed with the quality of frames. The styling is tasteful and can easily be used in non-cycling activities. Tho it isn't as wrap-around as dedicated sports frames, it still provides plenty of wind and dust protection while on the bike. No issues for the optician to place my prescription in these frames, which is often an issue with frames that have more wrap-around. I had the lenses tinted rose/red (similar to Rudy Project's Racing Red lens), and also have progressives for reading. The temples were easily adjustable (the optician preferred to do that, rather than me doing so). The only minor downside: on the bike, the frames slipped down a bit, even with the temples adjusted. This was easily remedied with a couple of silicon nose pads that I got from my optician for a couple of dollars. Now they don't slip. One star off for the lack of adjustable pads, but otherwise, very good frames.
