Acetate frames with a classic eyewear aesthetic, modern ergonomics and technical performance

The Classic Glasses reference the heritage of eyewear design, taking cues from classic casual styles, but using the modern materials of technical sports eyewear. The frame is made from fine Italian acetate, reinforced with a metal core. Acetate is a cotton-based material that is mixed, folded and cut (somewhat like pasta) and is a tenacious, living material with a great feel and depth of colour. The aesthetics and functionality of the glasses make them versatile enough for training and social rides, and time off the bike.

Made in a factory close to the Dolomites, the wrap around shape is inspired by flight goggles, aviators and the more modern plastic Italian frames, and offers a similar field of vision and weight as more technical-looking styles of the pro peloton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece for casual riding Great product, just a bit too narrow. On the nose it is semi-comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I'm very happy with these classic glasses. They are a great fit and provide good protection for the eyes. The build quality is excellent and the presentation tin is a great touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely great style Bigger frame than what I typically go for and is perfect for riding - tight but not uncomfortable. They look far better than wayfarers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Sunglasses These glasses are incredible. The finish and the detailing is insanely good, and they fit much better than the Series II glasses. They run a bit wider and the arms don't crimp as hard to the side of your head. The lenses are beautiful and fit most conditions perfectly when out on the bike. I wear these as my casual glasses as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Made Glasses I bought these for my wife, who is not a cyclist, because she admired them during a visit with me to the Rapha store. They fit really well, the optics are great, and they look terrific. Probably the most nicely made and detailed sunglasses I have ever seen. Very cool packaging, too.

Can you put prescription lenses in these frames?

Asked by: Marcus v
Hi, while sold with our own lenses you would need to refer to an optician who will be able to advise on the fitting of a prescription lens.

Hi there! I'd like to know the diameter of the shades, and the size of the frame and arms (in cms.) to figure it out if they can suit my face. Many thanks!

Asked by: alvaro_b_lorenzo
Hi, the approximate dimensions of the lens are 58cm x 47cm (at the widest). Arm length is 120cm and the nose bridge is 16cm.
