First seen when the Dutch WorldTour team LottoNL-Jumbo launched its 2018 kit, Shimano has now announced official details of its S-Phyre range of performance sunglasses.

The Shimano S-Phyre sunglasses range only consists of two models for now, with the S-Phyre R and S-Phyre X.

 

Shimano's S-Phyre R feature a rimless frame design

Shimano's S-Phyre R frames have a traditional performance cycling specific rimless design and weigh a feathery 25.6 grams, claims Shimano.

The Shimano S-Phyre X features a similar design but uses the top part of the frame to keep the lenses in place, while the lower section of the frame is removable dependent on rider preference.

Both models are available with either photochromatic adaptive lenses, which adjust to the conditions, or polarised lenses for constant sunny conditions. Both options are supplied with spare 'Cloud Mirror' low-light lenses too. All lens options include anti-scratch protection.

The glasses also feature changeable nose pads.
