We sometimes wonder whether cycling apparel makers find inspiration in superhero costumes, as Bolle’s new Shifters certainly wouldn’t look out of place in the new Avengers movie. With a bold look that for some may border on the brash, these offer your eyes 100% protection from UV rays as well as a completely uninterrupted field of vision.
Vents and anti-fog treatment on the lens ensures these don’t mist up either when things get sweaty out on the road. Lightweight at 32 g, a rubberized nose clip and rubber grips on the inside of the arms help these to cling to your face unobtrusively (well, for the wearer at least!). Available in seven different colorways from outrageous bright pink to a much less in-your-face black, with different colored lens options to suit.
Conclusion: Not the cheapest, and the look is a bit Marmite, but the quality and protection they provide is first class.
