See and be seen.
POC's attention-grabbing style continues to make its way into eyewear, with this year's newly-introduced DO Half Blade Sunglasses further advancing the cause. Designed to provide cyclists with a more extensive field of vision, the half-frame glasses have been seen on the likes of Cannondale-Garmin already and are now available for those who don't ride in green argyle.
The glasses' frames are made out of grilamid, a moldable synthetic that keeps weight low and handles impact well. POC uses hydrophilic rubber inserts on the nosepiece and temples to ensure the frames stay securely in place during hot summer rides, and the Zeiss lenses receive anti-fog and Ripel treatments to keep their surfaces clear throughout your ride. For days when the included lenses aren't ideal, they're easily interchangeable with other POC lens tints.
Equally concerned with safety as with clean, Swedish design, POC added the oversized lenses to afford riders a wider field of lower and peripheral vision, and the view is made even more extensive when combined with the absence of bottom rims on the frames. The lenses' tint is designed to put the road's surface in sharp relief, so you can keep a close eye on obstacles and depressions in the road without having to look down during sweeping descents.
To complete your kit, pair the DO Half Blade glasses with the corresponding colors of POC's helmet line. If you opt for the Octal, the DO Half Blades are designed specifically to fit under the helmet's temples and in its glasses garage.
