Rapha Shades


Rapha is one of the sport brands that most epitomizes the Style of Sport, with its line of chic and sophisticated, performance oriented cycling apparel. Based in London, the company produces bike jerseys, pants, and shoes, in addition to other apparel and accessories designed for the discerning cyclist, and has now introduced sunglasses into the collection.

Handmade in Italy, Rapha Classic Sunglasses are designed with more of a casual aesthetic that are ideal for the bike commuter, yet versatile enough for training rides. Offering a similar weight and field of vision as the more technical-looking styles, these glasses have a wraparound shape inspired by the history of bike-racing eyewear. This shape also aids airflow, ensuring the lenses won’t fog up and that the glasses can be worn with all helmet types. Rubber-tipped nose pads and rubber arms hold the glasses in place.

The lens technology is supplied courtesy of Carl Zeiss Vision, and are available in three distinctive colorways. All are coated for 100% protection from UV rays, and both the green and brown lenses are polarized for anti-glare. The pink lens is designed for low-light conditions. Rapha Classic Sunglasses retail for $295.

On the bike and off, we are loving this newest addition to the Rapha family!
