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

Hi, can I add progressive lens on this glasses ?

Asked by: Nicola V
Hi, this depends on your optician, some places will be able to do so and others wont. This is mainly due to the slight curvature of the frame

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

Asked by: BonoH
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.

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

Hi, the glasses have a 8 base spherical lens.
