Assos Zegho Noir Sunglasses $
The height of fashion and function.
One look at the Assos Zegho Noir Sunglasses, and its clear that something special is going on. What that is may not quite be apparent at first glance, so we’ll dive right in. The Zegho Noir uses Zeiss lenses, first and foremost. These lenses are completely distortion-free, which puts them in pretty rarefied company.
These Zeiss lenses obviously cover the eyes completely, but they’re also rimless, which affords 180 degrees of vision –a number unmatched by even some of our longtime favorite eyewear. Additionally, the dark-to-clear transition is what Assos calls Tunnel Vision; it’s designed to allow you to tilt your head up slightly when you enter the tunnel and maintain full vision, then return to normal at the exit. It’s such a simple solution that simply works.

In spite of the price, not overpriced
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I wrote a review of the Zegho Amplify (yellow lens) Sunglasses, and it applies to these as well. I'm basically copy/pasting the review below, removing references to the yellow lens (see my review here: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/assos-zegho-amplify-sunglasses#review-atg669460)
I've been wearing 'premium' sunglasses for a long time, from a variety of brands, and long ago learned about the benefits of non-polarized lenses. I purchased a pair of Zegho Amplifys and I loved the way they disappeared from my awareness once I put them on.
So, what makes the Zegho sunglasses better?
1) The lack of interchangeable lenses mean that these glasses do one thing perfectly, as opposed to a wide variety of things not quite as well.
2) They are lighter, so I hardly notice that I'm wearing them (3, 4, 6, and 7 contribute to this feeling as well).
3) They are extremely flexible so the ear pieces wrap around my head without being tight. The lack of pressure behind the ears is a huge deal for me as excessively tight glasses cause headaches.
4) No blind spots. The hinges are beyond the edges of my peripheral vision so I don't feel like I'm wearing glasses. This seems like a subtle thing, but it's a game-changer for me.
5) Flat temples. A plus if you use a Garmin Varia Vision like me or if you wear your glasses under your helmet straps.
6) Full coverage. These things have the same coverage as ski goggles (minus the padding), so I can't see the edges of the lenses. Again, this contributes to the sense that I'm not wearing glasses.
7) No optical distortion. I never even knew that I wanted this, but subtle optical distortions are now noticeable on my 'cheaper' glasses.
8) In spite of the price, not overpriced. Go look at Smith/Rudy Project/Revo/Oakley. Look at their 'best' cycling glasses. Try them on. Note the price... most are about 10-15% cheaper than this and nowhere near as good.
Summary: Where's that 6th star? I need another star for this review.
I'm spoiled after finding these!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
These are amazing glasses. So lightweight and with a clear view, you'll totally forget you're wearing them! Expensive, yes... but a great brand and awesome quality. These are absolutely worth it.
