Egan Bernal – What Sunglasses Does He Wear?

At just 22 he’s one of the youngest ever winners of the Tour de France and also the first Colombian ever to win the race.

With his own team Geraint Thomas saying he could easily become one of the greatest ever cyclists over the next few years’, there has certainly been a lot of attention on him over the last few weeks.

One question we’ve been asked a lot is, what sunglasses is he wearing? This is a question we’re more than happy to answer.

Much like Geraint Thomas and his Oakley Racing Jackets (now discontinued), Egan Bernal is never seen without his bold style of eyewear. The Oakley Sutro.

New to RxSport in 2019 it’s a frame that has really impressed road cyclists on both the professional circuit, but also at an amateur level. Drawing inspiration from modern lifestyle shapes, the Oakley Sutro sunglasses flaunt sport performance that dares to be different with a striking shield lens looking great on and off the bike.

The Open Championship starts today – Top Golf Sunglasses
Debates across the office have begun… Will Tiger Woods be back on form, can Shane Lowry triumph on home turf… We shall see. After the last few weeks of epic sporting showdowns, we expect nothing less from this tournament.

When it comes to golf, there’s a few frames that stand out to us above the rest.

Dirty Dog Sly

The Sly is one of Dirty Dog’s latest sports models. Thanks to its flexible thermoplastic build, the fit of this frame is feather-light and extremely comfortable. Excellently suited to golf, the halfrim shape of the Sly gives you unobstructed vision in the lower periphery, meaning you’ll have no problem addressing the ball or reading greens!
Go for either of Dirty Dogs two golf specific tints (Brown Golf or Green Golf) and you’ll benefit from their contrast enhancing technology designed for the golf course.

Oakley Flak 2.0 XL

Seen by many as Oakley’s best halfrim sports performance model. Its O Matter® frame material makes for a light weight yet flexible and impressively durable frame. Unobtainium® components maintain grip in the most adverse conditions. Extended lens coverage in the lower periphery of the XL variant helps to block unwelcome glare and improve physical protection of the eyes.

Available with both of Oakley’s Golf specific tints – Prizm Golf and Prizm Dark Golf

Nike Maverick

Nike’s Maverick frame is an excellent golf frame that can keep pace with the most vigorous players. A full-rim nylon frame delivers top performance on or off the golf course to help you to stay on top of the action. Pair this frame with either Nikes’ Course Tint Electric Mirror lens, or their Course Tint Milky Blue Mirror depending on your tastes, and you’ll be sure to have a great pair of sunglasses for any course.

Maui Jim Ho’okipa

The Ho’okipa flaunts classic Maui Jim style. Rimless polycarbonate lenses are complemented by gloss-finished, flexible Grilamid temples for a sleek finish. Enjoy Hawaiian hospitality the Maui Jim way whilst on the course.

Adidas Kumacross Halfrim

A tough frame with the enhanced peripheral vision of a halfrim frame, the adidas Kumacross Halfrim offers great views and optical protection in a lightweight and flexible package.

Oakley Mercenery

For athletes looking to push their limits in style, Oakley Mercenary sunglasses come to the fore with a wrapped shape and large half-rim lenses featuring an aggressive cut for a uniquely rugged edge.

Available with Oakley’s Prizm Dark Golf lens tint.

Bolle Flyair

The extremely lightweight Flyair is as flexible as it is versatile. A toughened frame sports thermogrip components on the temples to keep the frames from slipping during active use. Pair this frame with Bolle’s Modulator V3 Golf lens tint and you’re onto a winning combination.

Pit Lane Ready Sunglasses

It’s that time of year again, the pinnacle of British Motor Sport, the British F1 Grand Prix.Hot off the announcement that will be on the F1 calendar for atleast the next 5 years, we’re celebrating all things F1 and why we love the British Grand Prix.

When Formula 1 drivers talk about their favourite corners, Silverstone often appears on the list. The circuit is a high-speed test of an F1 car’s aerodynamics, and the rapid changes of direction make it stand out.

The weather at Silverstone always makes for a special race, or better or for worse… Come rain or shine the drivers always put on a great show and the fans will always be out in force, no matter the conditions!

One thing many forget is it’s also the home race for a number of the teams as well. Of the 10 Formula 1 teams, seven have their headquarters in England, while Toro Rosso also make use of a wind-tunnel and design facility in Bicester, less than 15 miles away from Silverstone.

A 7th pole position for Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone would see him beat the record of 6 home poles set by his hero Ayrton Senna.

Here’s our top picks of sunglasses perfect for the F1, whether you’re a fan in the crowd, or you’re lucky enough to grace the pit lane.

The S3 sport performance sunglasses join 100%’s extensive line of elite eyewear, complementing results-driven frames and lenses developed in conjunction with famed 3 time Road World Champion Peter Sagan.

New Oakley Prizm Lens Tints

We’re excited to announce the arrival of the latest lens tints in Oakley’s Prizm collection.

Two standout favourites of ours are the Prizm Road Black and Prizm Trail Torch tints from their sports specific range.

Prizm Road Black is a new variation of the original Prizm Road tint and is perfect for both Road Cycling and Road Running. Prizm Road Black is designed for use in medium to bright light, whereas the original Prizm Road tint was a great all rounder from low to bright lights. So, if the new tint supposedly isn’t as versatile, why do we love it so much? Honestly,  one reason is simply an aesthetics thing, it simply looks cooler, having done away with the original pink tint. Another reason is the fact it’s that little bit darker, it’s great in bright conditions, when sometimes the original Prizm Road tint sometimes felt not quite dark enough. If you pair the Prizm Road Black lenses with a pair of Prizm Low Light lenses, you’re honestly on to a winning combination for all conditions. Discover the full collection of Prizm Road sunglasses at RxSport

Prizm Road Black Key Facts:

  • Suggested sports: Road Cycling, Road Running
  • Lighting conditions: Medium to Bright
  • VLT: 11%

Prizm Trail Torch is a new variation of Prizm Trail and is perfect for MTB riding and Trail Running. Prizm Trail Torch is designed for medium to bright light conditions, whereas the original Prizm Trail tint was great in low to medium conditions.
