AeroComfort XL Sunglasses
Maximize aerodynamics and comfort with a little help from Scicon and the AeroComfort XL Sunglasses. While you may know Scicon as the leader in the world of bike cases, the brand recently decided it would broaden its horizons, and we can't think of a better way to do it than by partnering with some of the industry's bests. Scicon teamed up with Essilor Sun Solutions, the industry's leading-experts in high quality vision equipment, to bring you a pair of sunglasses that excel in every discipline — from the tarmac to the dirt road, and from your second-stage in a triathlon, to dusty mountain bike trails. They are built to comfortably sit against your face without worries of slipping when the circumstances around you are severe, and offer total clarity while doing so. Like the AeroTech sunglasses from Scicon, the AreoComfort uses the same frame material and lens material, but rather than the one-piece shield on the Aerotech, the AeroComfort opts for a two-piece application. They are available in either a standard or XL lens option, with this particular model being the XL, ideal for those of us with slightly larger faces.
Made entirely in Italy, Scicon lays claim to its continued reputation as a market leader from cycling's heartland, and the AeroComfort XL sunglasses carry on that tradition using a lightweight and durable Grilamid TR90 frame that is highly resistant to breakage, chemical damage, and is completely allergy free, and sourced and crafted in Italy. The frame features adjustable Flexi Fit temples that are coated in thermoplastic elastomer to ensure a secure fit on your head, as well as three different sizes of TPE double-click nose pads for a comfortable fit on your face.
What really sets the AeroComfort XL sunglasses apart from the competition is the photochromic SCN-XT shield lens. While most cycling sunglasses use a polycarbonate lens, the SCN-XT lenses are made of NXT, which is a special polymer originally formulated for the windshields of attack helicopters. The material offers the best possible visibility in all conditions, is highly resistant to scratches and impacts, and offers 100% UV protection. As we mentioned above the lenses are photochromic, darkening their tint in bright sunlight yet going almost clear if conditions are dark or overcast. The lenses also feature a unique interchangeable fender system that allows you to attach either a sprint or regular sized fender for maximum protection in the event of a crash. The fenders are removable should you prefer a half-rim lens with an unobstructed field of view.
