Tifosi, the North American eyewear brand, has just launched its first rimless sunglasses, seeking to combine stylish looks with unobstructed vision. The pricing is designed to be competitive too, with the MSRP starting at $79.95, compared to $159.00 for the Smith Reverb, which offers a similar package.

With a fashionably oversized lens, the Rail promises “maximum protection”, while the “increased airflow” should serve to limit fogging – at least when clipped in and rolling. The lens itself is made from a shatterproof and scratch resistant polycarbonate which has been “optically decentred for optimal clarity.”

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
