Assos is a company whose sole focus has always been high performance apparel for cyclists. Simple as that. This year they decided to slightly broaden their reach by offering one of the most popular cycling accouchements. The Zegho eyewear collection is the result of intense research and development in the lab and field.
In typical Assos style, form follows function. They do not look like any other eyewear on the market and perform far better. There are three things you will notice when you first try the Zegho. First, they are feather weight. Two, they are incredibly flexible and pliant. So much so, they will wrap and contour any face and appear to give a shrink wrap fit. Three, the shear amount of coverage is amazing. They will provide unimpaired vision everywhere - there are no frame borders or blind spots impeding your vision.
As you would expect from Assos, workmanship and materials are all first rate. The glasses take 22 manufacturing steps by 37 different people from start to finish. The arms and nose piece are rubber coated for grip and comfort. The Carl Zeiss lens is distortion free and provides 100% UV protection.
All technical jargon aside, we cannot impress on you how sweet the Zeghos are until you try them out. They have transformed a piece of eyewear into a bicycle component. The Noir is the most basic of the Zegho series with an all-black frame and black/grey lens.
