While style might be in the eye of the beholder, quality certainly is not. And along these lines, when we first saw the Catlike D'Lux Micro Photocromic Sunglasses, we knew that they were something special on both fronts. Not surprisingly, Catlike's foray into eyewear follows the same ideological path as its helmets, starting with functionality. The frames are made from a lightweight and durable, dual-compound polycarbonate.
In the Micro, you'll find that the lens shape features a little more shallow profile than the other D'Lux offerings. This compact shape still provides ample coverage, but it permits a lighter overall design. At the arms of the Micros, Catlike has rubberized a majority of the surface area. This prevents slippage against either either your skin or helmet when you rest the glasses during a long climb. To further the precise fit of the Micro, Catlike included an adjustable nose bridge with a similar anti-slip rubberized surface. This allows you to make minute adjustments in order to dial-in the position of the glasses. Additionally, you'll find that the rubber is soft-to-the-touch, as to make the bridge nonbinding and non-obtrusive.
Catlike designed the lenses to be interchangeable. This allows you to run clear lenses in low-light conditions, or the polarized, blue blocker lenses in bright conditions. Either way, Catlike's European engineered and manufactured lenses feature an anti-scratch, water-repellent, and anti-reflective design that will provide a consistent, 100% light transmission. Additionally, you won't have to worry about internal condensation, as the frame design allows ample airflow through in order to prevent misting. Not surprisingly, this Photochromic iteration of the Micro features a photochromic lens. This means that the lenses darken under ultraviolet light, and lessen their gradient in lower-light conditions. Basically, this means that the D'Lux will adapt to its surroundings during your ride. So, when you pop in and out of a shady canyon, the D'Lux will deliver a consistently appropriate level of protection.
The Catlike D'Lux Micro Photocromic Sunglasses are available in one size and in the colors Carbon/black, Green/white, Red/white, White/pink, White/green, White/orange, White/black, and White/red.
