A clear line of sight is never more important than when you’re riding from dawn until dusk on varied terrain. The Explore Sunglasses are made with injection moulded Grilamid, which is lightweight and durable, and feature a drop lens design without a lower bar, so that your view of the trail is uninterrupted. A removable strap keeps them secure on your face and close to hand when hung around the neck. Two-point snap lock hinges make the glasses easier to put on and remove while Megol arm grippers keep them comfortably in place, even in wet conditions. The interchangeable nose piece, made with the same high-grip material, comes in two sizes for an adjustable fit. The fully vented, hydrophobic lens provides extra coverage from dust and spray and features an anti-scratch layer with a military-grade anti-fogging treatment. All of our lenses make use of our proprietary Rider Optimised Surface Enhancement technology.

Designed to heighten contrast on all road surfaces, it is an entirely new lens technology developed specially for cyclists by Rapha to help you spot hazards sooner and see clearer in all conditions. The Explore Sunglasses are available in a range of colour options, each with a different lens selected for performance in a wide range of light conditions. Lenses are interchangeable and each pair comes with a spare clear lens for use in lower light conditions.
