We have it on good authority that the shades to be worn by LottoNL-Jumbo for 2018 are an as-of-yet unreleased addition to Shimano's top-tier S-Phyre range.

Hiding in plain sight, the team is pictured toting two new sets of shades that will fill a glaring gap in Shimano's premium brand.

Both glasses appear to share the same lens, with one a conventional and one frameless design. The sculpted arms are also shared and bow outward, presumably to clear helmet straps easily.

The silhouette of the lairy goggle-like shades is not totally unlike the universally loved Oakley Jawbreaker and definitely follows the ‘more-is-more' trend when it comes to coverage.

The rest of the team's kit is also S-Phyre and presents an ongoing collaboration between the team and Shimano.

We're afraid that's all we have for now, but we'll be sure to update this story as soon as we have more information!

The S-Phyre range now encompasses everything from head-to-toe, save for a helmet, which makes us think there's a good chance we'll see a lid from Shimano in the not too distant future.
