Cycling Weekly Verdict

This a high quality set of sunnies with custom fit features. The frame is robustly built and the tall lens provides impressive clarity and an excellent field of vision - great for sunny daytime rides. However, the nosepiece is quite firm and I found it could get a little uncomfortable on rides even as short as an hour.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Excellent lens clarity

  • +

    Tall design effectively protects against the elements

  • +

    Oleophobic and Hydrophobic coating

  • +

    Extendable arms for a custom fit

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Firm nosepad can be uncomfortable

I first came across Scicon Sports when I was looking at the Italian brand's bike bags. The 1980 founded manufacturer has long impressed with its well designed and high quality products in that sphere: CW’s review of the Scicon Aerocomfort 3.0 Road Bike Travel Bag is a recent example of a product that has scored well with us.

But bags aren’t the only cycling product that Scicon produces. Back in 2019 Scicon entered the sports eyewear market and 14 models currently sit under its webpage on cycling sunglasses.

I’ve been hooked on bikes ever since the age of 12 and my first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in the bright yellow kit of the Hillingdon Slipstreamers. For a time, my cycling life centred around racing road and track. 

But that’s since broadened to include multiday two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain I happen to meet - with a two-week bikepacking trip from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia being just the latest.

I still enjoy lining up on a start line, though, racing the British Gravel Championships and finding myself on the podium at the enduro-style gravel event, Gritfest in 2022.
