Assos Zegho Crytal Glasses

Assos believe in giving us a lot of options, since they are catering to cyclists who face all sorts of different climatic challenges. The Assos Zegho Crystal Glasses are designed to improve your ride safety and comfort even on gloomy cloudy days.
 
If you’re wondering when you might need the Amplify and when you might need the Crystal, they are both for cloudy days, but the Amplify will probably be handiest with seriously rainy weather whatever the season, while the Crystal will probably be the best selection for those dark, deep winter snowy days, or if the climatic conditions are changing. And of course both glasses can be used if you are stuck with a gloomy summer.
 
The crux of the Zegho project was to make a pair of cycling-specific sunglasses that would protect the eyes without distorting the view through the curved lenses. Though the lens is curved to follow the shape of the face, the V-Technology platform employed by Assos and Carl Zeiss Vision means that there is no optical distortion. The peripheries of the lens are equally non-distorting which gives the rider the confidence that, from whatever angle the eye is looking through the lens, all variances and undulations in the road surface will be evident. The lenses are not polarized because reflections in the road are important for a cyclist to see and react to. And the RI.PEL hydrophobic self-clearing lens technology will keep them water-repellant and easy to keep clean.
 
At just 27.5 grams, the Assos Zegho Crystal will rest on your face without weighing you down or irritating your nose. The nose piece is made malleable and therefore adjustable to each individual’s nose. For the ear pieces, Assos developed what they call clickFace technology, making use of a proadaptive skinTouch material that will help the ear pieces mold to the shape of your head. If you are used to glasses with extremely grippy ear pieces, this will likely seem strange at first, but once you put them on and form the pieces around your head, you will have complete confidence in their stable and comfortable fit. Uncomfortable pressure points will be eliminated while the glasses will stay perfectly in place.
 
The Assos Zegho Crystal Glasses have clear UV protective lenses paired with translucent ear pieces, giving them a chic, stealthy appearance. While other manufactures have clear lenses, they are usually just shaped pieces of plastic. The Assos Zegho Crystal have the apparent simplicity of a clear lens, but give you the benefit of all the optical science in the details.
