Bollé has a long history of involvement with the highest levels of cycling. The first sports sunglasses ever created by the brand, Nylon Grand Sport, were a cycling model introduced in 1958 to equip famous cyclists such as Louison Bobet during the Tour de France. Since this time the brand has maintained strong partnerships with talented cyclists and teams, and has kept on innovating to offer the most advanced technologies dedicated to high level cycling. After the successful launch of SHIFTER sunglasses last year, Bollé introduces a new semi-rimless design derived from this first model: LIGHTSHIFTER. Paying tribute to 5 years of collaboration, UCI World Tour team AG2R LA MONDIALE were the first to wear Bollé’s latest cycling dedicated sunglasses and to appreciate its performance during the most famous race of the year, the Tour de France.
LIGHTSHIFTER benefits from the combination of the best of Bollé’s technologies and meets all the needs of the performance cyclist.
They are available with Phantom photochromic lenses, the latest and most advanced lens technology of the brand. Made of NXT® offering a mix of exceptional optical clarity and impact resistance, Phantom lenses lighten and darken quickly, adapting automatically to the light conditions and providing the best vision at all times. In addition, the lens features a hydrophobic treatment (so that water droplets roll off) and an oleophobic treatment (to repel dirt), keeping the cyclist’s vision clear. Lastly, a frontal air vent ensures optimal air flow and prevents fog.
LIGHTSHIFTER is available with prescription lenses that are inserted directly into the shield, ensuring all the frames properties and lens performance remain. This aspect has convinced and seduced all AG2R LA MONDIALE riders wearing prescription eyewear.
LIGHTSHIFTER’s modern and sharp semi-rimless design combines extreme lightness and perfect stability.
Available next autumn from Croft & Graves.
