EYE PROTECTION SKHARAB
Skharab stands for the introduction of a new category of ASSOS glasses and is specifically tailored to road and cross-country races.
We have several features of ours for this model Zegho glasses adopted, including the rimless design, the fully adjustable bridge and the feather-light wearing comfort. We optimized the glasses for speed, protection and crystal-clear vision on unstable ground conditions and adjusted them to changing light conditions.
To develop the design, we first called in athletes from both disciplines and created prototypes that could be used for many different head shapes and helmets. Ultimately, we opted for a model with monoglass that offers an unrestricted field of vision in steep driving positions, both on and off the road. The sealed temples with ventilation channels are attached to the upper corners of the glass and nestle gently against the head with a secure hold above the ear. The glass itself is made of break-proof nylon, which impresses mainly with its durability and low weight. It is available as a phototropic glass for varying lighting conditions and as a standard version for moderate light. Both models offer 100% UV protection, increased contrast and improved visibility of roads and cross-country trails. the Skharab is designed in Switzerland, handcrafted in Italy and comes in a case with a cleaning cloth.
