Classic styling meets modern performance in a new, smaller fit
The new Rapha Classic Glasses II are the perfect blend of classic style and modern performance. Using the same state-of-the-art components as technical sports eyewear, they are equally at home on or off the bike. 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 hand 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 rapha.cc are not currently compatible with the Rapha Classic Glasses II.

Are the lenes in the II version Zeiss Polyamide like the first version?
Hi, I bought the glasses and the fit seems to be very close to my cheeks and eyebrows (ie shallow bridges). Since this is a sporty sunglasses, should I expect the fit to be close to my face and touches my cheeks and eyebrows? Thanks
Hi, are these glasses compatible also with prescription lenses ? thanks !
Hi, what is in the box?
Hello, I have sun glasses which size is 54/18 145 ant those fit me very well. I am wondering if these would be also a good fit compared to the my ideal size. Any comments?
I normally don't like polarized lenses because I can't see the screen on my bike computer, watch, or phone. Am I doing to have the same problem with these?
Is it possible to purchase a pair of black frames with the green lens found on the blonde frame?
Are the lenses shatter resistant in the event of a crash?
