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

Brown lens: Category 3: 9.72% light transmittance

Green lens: Category 3: 12.13% light transmittance

Dark grey lens: Category 3: 11.47% light transmittance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect glasses for on and off bike Bought it after i got city-round glasses a few months ago. ReallY love that one but it a bit small for my face. So i tried my luck to order this city square online. Superb quality frame and lens. Very comfort on my face and stay still while moving or cycling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes ! Stylish, subtle, simple and very Rapha. Loving the clicking hinge mechanism. Nice soft pouch (would have been nice to have a hard case too). They are what I expected and yes, I’m happy with them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optically perfect I've been wearing another sports brand (their 'wire' range) for years but fancied something a bit more retro, stylish and less 'Dad Rock'. My wife has some sunglasses from a very well known retro styled brand but their hinges have become quite loose and the lenses don't have the clarity I was looking for. I spotted the City Square Glasses in an email from Rapha and loved the look of them. They are beautifully made and finished, the hinges are extremely solid with reassuring clicks when locked open or closed. They are very light, although as they don't have soft nose pads like my old sunglasses, the bulk on the bridge of my nose has taken a bit of getting used to. But the lenses are just incredible, they are optically perfect, it's almost as if they don't exist (apart from the tint of course). One last thing - they case is exquisite! Padded, zipped soft leather (I think) and extremely tactile. As you can probably tell, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sunglasses! I really like these sunglasses and would have given them 5 stars if they carried a slightly larger size.

Can this lenses be used for road cycling or they are intended for cycling in the city and commuting?

Asked by: LAP123
Whilst these glasses are not designed with road Cycling in mind, they can be worn on Road Bikes, but they will not have the all-round protection that Road Glasses can offer.
