Modelled on the glasses worn by the likes of Coppi and Anquetil, our Classic Sunglasses are designed for performance on the bike, with a stylish silhouette that is inconspicuous at the café stop. Made with injection-moulded Grilamid, they are lighter than the original model, with snap lock hinges for stability on the face and when folded and stored. For a secure fit, the arm grippers and the nose piece – which comes in two sizes for an adjustable fit – are made with Megol, which provides high levels of grip in spite of rain or perspiration. The subtle wrap of the frame improves the rider’s field of vision while the hydrophobic lenses feature a military-grade anti-fogging treatment, an anti-scratch layer, and make use of our pioneering Rider Optimised Surface Enhancement (ROSE) technology.
Designed to heighten contrast on all road surfaces, ROSE 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 Classic Sunglasses are available with one of two ROSE lenses, both selected to provide a clear line of sight in a wide range of light conditions.
- Black mirror lens: 10%
