POC Sunglasses

POC is a Swedish company with a strong mission to do the best we can to possibly save lives and to reduce the consequences of accidents for gravity sports athletes and cyclists.

Since being founded in 2005 POC have won no fewer than 40 prestigious international safety, design, innovation and business awards for their work in protective equipment for snow and gravity sports.

With the experience gained in goggles optics, POC decided to translate their knowledge into a form compatible with sunglasses, and the manufacturer is now a supplier of protective wear to some of professional cycling's most successful teams and riders.

POC's cycling sunglasses are developed to maximise vision and protection for all conditions, and will shield you from all nature's elements. Lightweight, tough and flexible injected thermoplastic frames are complemented by quality lenses, either made with pure Polycarbonate or Nylon in collaboration with the famed Zeiss optical laboratory, or NXT® for unmatched impact protection.

For its range of sunglasses, POC's primary concern is safety on the road. To this end, only the finest materials are used to ensure visual clarity is at its maximum in the road or trail environment, and frame itself is able to match the pace of the demands of the wearer by offering a secure fit in all conditions. These are some of the key features found on models of the POC sunglasses range:

Sports Grade Lenses

The Do Blade, Do Flow and Do Low feature polycarbonate lenses as standard, the Want and Will models come equipped with high purity Nylon lenses. All are made in collaboration with Zeiss, regarded as an industry leader in optics with over a century of experience. Polarised lenses come in either super-strong NXT® or Zeiss polycarbonate.

Grilamid Frames

Grilamid is a highly versatile thermoplastic the three key qualities of flexibility, durability and light weight, all essential characteristics in any sports sunglasses frame. These injected Grilamid frames mean your sunglasses will fit better, stand up to unexpected bumps and won't sag uncomfortably on pressure points after prolonged wear.

Hydrophilic Elements

Seamlessly integrated hydrophilic components increase their grip in response to increased moisture, this means the fit of your sunglasses will stay secure through pouring rain and intense perspiration. You will be able to depend on your POC sunglasses to hold firm when you need them to most.

POC Sunglasses - Technology Guide

Adjustable Nosepiece

The Do Blade, Do Flow and Do Low sports models feature fully adjustable nosepads which can be easily tweaked to perfectly suit the fit of the wearer. This means a seamless fit and comfort for a long day on the road. The Want and Will models have fixed nosepads with integrated hydrophilic components for enhanced grip.

Lens Ventilation

The lenses of the Do Blade and Do Flow contain ventilation channels in the upper periphery of the lens to reduce drag and the risk of fogging of the inner lens surface. To further reduce the risk of fogging all Zeiss polycarbonate lenses have an anti-fog treatment on the inner lens to further mitigate against unwelcome misting.

Full-Rim Frames

Every model in our POC rage boasts a full-rim frame to maximise the protection of the ocular area. In the unlikely event of impact to the frame, the full-rim shape will be more likely to survive while also offering more protection to the lenses. POC's amply sized lenses mean you won't need to worry about your peripheral vision being impaired.
