Shimano launches new S-Phyre eyewear

Premium eyewear developed with input from Team LottoNL-Jumbo

Shimano says that its new S-Phyre eyewear positions it at the premium end of the cycling eyewear market, complementing its S-Phyre shoe and clothing range. It says that the lens design is form fitting, to reduce air turbulence over the face. It’s also designed the sidepieces to fit closely around the side of the face.

Shimano says that it’s worked with riders from the LottoNL-Jumbo team on the glasses’ design. Key requirements from the team were large lenses for protection and good peripheral vision and more deeply tinted lenses for good vision in bright sunlight. Riders also asked for a secure fit which remained comfortable and good resistance to scratching of the lens.
