Elite Cycling Sunglasses – 220 Triathlon Magazine
Yes, you’ve read that correctly – just 10 pounds for a pair of cycling glasses. In all honesty, we shouldn’t be surprised.
We’ve tested Lomo before, albeit their aquatic range, and the RRPs are staggering (they currently sell a 4mm/5mm wetsuit for £65.00).
But surely the quality is as low as the price? Not at all. The wraparound style, to protect your pupils from insects, sit nicely. However, the combo of our large schnoz and rigid nose bridge meant we’d like it to have nestled a touch lower. It wasn’t uncomfortable but it did mean you could see the base of the lens. The Elites come with two lenses – orange for the sunnier climes, clear for cloudier. These were easily swapped over, though its next incarnation should benefit from a darker lens for truly bright conditions. They’re billed as cycling glasses but performed impressively on the run, too, not fogging up like many of their more illustrious rivals. For £10, they’re an absolute steal.
Lomo are undeniably the new kings of budget sunglasses.
