Frames for Fausto

Based on Rapha’s popular Classic Glasses II, this special edition pair pays homage to one of the coolest riders to ever race a bicycle. Fausto Coppi didn’t just knock his rivals into submission, he did so while oozing panache. The frames on these glasses use a special ‘Havana’ acetate from prestigious Italian manufacturers Mazzuchelli 1849 which offers a pink hue in the sunlight - a nod to the colour synonymous with Coppi and Italy’s great race - while several other small touches complete a luxury finish. Coppi’s signature is inlaid in chrome on the right-hand temple, with the Rapha logo on the other. An exclusive Coppi illustration has been etched onto the right-hand lens, which is a world-class Carl Zeiss model and comes in a classic green colour. The frame arms have been finished with the same ribbed gripper as used on the Pro Team Flyweight Glasses to ensure a secure fit whether riding, worn on top of the head or in the vents of a helmet.

  • Category 3 lens: 11.98% light transmittance
