Essilor Sun Solution signs a collaboration with the cycling brand Ekoi

October 25 2019

Essilor Sun Solution, the Essilor Group Division dedicated to sun plano lenses, and Ekoi, one of the major players in the European market for cycling equipment, have created together the new Ekoi Persevo 10 sunglasses. These models are the result of a close collaboration between the product development team and the pro-riders of the sport company’s Deceuninck Quick Step team together with the world leader in lenses.

It is a range of technical sunglasses for cycling, extra light (just 28g) and very well ventilated, which have been designed to perform in the strongest sport conditions . The models are combined with four different Essilor Sun Solution sun lenses, all in NXT, the patented material which combines the best of both worlds: the optical clarity of mineral lenses and the lightweight and impact resistance of organic lenses.

All lenses are mirrored and have the oleophobic and antifog treatments. One of the three, in addition, is photocromic.

The result is a pair of sunglasses which has been developed also thanks to the valuable feedback from professional riders, combined with state-of-the-art manufacturing in order to guarantee the best performance.
