Cycling Weekly Verdict

Koo’s Supernova sunglasses come with a premium pricetag but are incredibly lightweight (22g measured, 21g claimed) for the wide coverage they offer. With notably springy arms, there’s no pinching or squeezing – the fit is very comfortable. However, this does make the glasses a little less secure for riding on rough roads and trails.
