CAB9 SA­VAN­NAH

Urban Cyclist - - Gear On Test -

The Cab9 crew is a col­lec­tive of snow­board in­struc­tors whose ex­pe­ri­ence in the sun, snow and on the street has, they say, helped them to iden­tify a gap in the eye­wear mar­ket – namely high-qual­ity stylish sun­glasses at an af­ford­able price. And fair play, they’ve done a fine job with the Sa­van­nahs. The stylish tor­toise-shell de­sign drew ad­mir­ing glances through­out our test pe­riod, and across the board, from re­gal Clifton to bo­hemian Stokes Croft. The poly­car­bon­ate frame feels more durable than its ul­tra-light­weight con­struc­tion sug­gests and it fits like a glove. It’s also com­fort­able thanks to its rub­berised fin­ish. The only cost-sav­ing is seem­ingly the po­larised lenses, which are a touch flimsy but what you’d ex­pect at this price point. Solid hinges com­plete a pair of glasses that prac­ti­cally and aes­thet­i­cally punch well above their weight.
