Scicon’s two new biking glasses search to provide riders higher air circulation, extra protection, and glare safety on the forehead.
To do it, Scicon Sports activities designed and inbuilt “SpaceVent” air flow, which it claims cuts fog at maximal effectivity however doesn’t compromise subject of view or aerodynamics.
That’s saying one thing as a result of the vents are massive, boxy, and excessive. You gained’t put on both the Aerowatt or the Aerowatt Foza and not stand out — except, perhaps, you’re driving subsequent to Tadej Pogačar, who gained the hilly Planche des Belles Filles stage carrying a pair.
Pogačar and his UAE Group Emirates teammate Rafał Majka examined prototypes for Scicon, which calls its new glasses “avant-garde.”
Past the testing pedigree and wild venting touches, practical design components embrace:
- putting the body behind the highest of the lens to shut out glare
- a SCN-PP True Imaginative and prescient photochromic lens that darkens when varied sufficiently highly effective gentle sorts hit it
- a “shadow matt define” across the lens that helps soften reflections
- frames constructed from bio-based supplies together with vegetable oil.
The Aerowatt is available in a 65mm width, and the Foza is somewhat narrower at 60mm. Every pair is available in a alternative of 4 body colours and 10 lens colours. MSRP: $240 (on sale for $168 as of this writing).
