Spec­tac­u­lar Specs

Canadian Cycling Magazine - - IN DEPTH -

Re­cently Smith launched the Ruckus glasses A ($ 200, smithop­tics.com). They fea­ture an up­dated Pivlock sys­tem for swap­ping tem­ples, which is smoother than the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, while still se­cure. The top bar im­proves air­flow to pre­vent fog­ging. The Oak­ley Jaw­breaker B ($ 268, oak­ley.ca) in Splat­ter Ce­leste is a bit Jack­son Pol­lock and a bit Saved­bythe­bell. It’s for those with a soft spot for the early ’90s and who want the com­pany’s Prizm lens tech­nol­ogy for high colour con­trast. The 100% Speed­craft Air C ($ 425, or­ange­s­port­sup­ply.com) has two arms that work in con­junc­tion with mag­nets that ad­here to your nose. The sys­tem is said to help your breath­ing out on the road. Hey, if it works for Pe­ter Sa­gan…the Bollé Shifter D ($ 300, bolle.com) are sleek, new glasses from the 130-year-old com­pany. The Phan­tom lens’s pho­tochromic fil­ter ad­justs to var­i­ous light con­di­tions. The POC Re­quire glasses E ($ 250, poc­sports.com) of­fer a clas­sic look that works both on and off the bike. The frame is made of gril­amid, a ther­mo­plas­tic that’s strong and of­fers some flex.
