You’re pedaling hard to get up over that final hill of your ride, breathing heavy and squinting up into the sun. As you plateau and start to descend, you realize in a panic that the sun is now blinding you, forcing you to tap the brakes. A pair of performance sunglasses is the solution to that problem. Alba Optics’ dropped its latest sports frame, the Stratos to provide you uninhibited field of vision, and one free of fog, thanks to one simple feature.

The S-Lens VZUM on the Stratos is the newest lens from Alba Optic, and it features a small vent above the bridge that allows just the right amount of airflow — they’ll resist fog despite heavy breathing on climbs. The lens also features UV400 protection, so your eyes are safe from both UVA and UVB radiation. Each frame is incredibly lightweight (just 24 grams, basically the same as an AA battery) and handmade in Italy.
STRATOS uses VZUM™ S-LENS made from scratch resistant polycarbonate base 6 non-centered to enable a fixed vision without side deformation. Their curve covers an optical cone of 180°, allowing an excellent protection against the wind and strong light, that often reflects on other sunglasses creating an eye blinding effect. The shock absorbent, unbreakable material provides an excellent resilience.
VZUM™ S-LENS has a very elegant and sturdy packaging, made from heavy white cardboard. You will receive a box containing a lens, technical microfibre fabric, CE guarantee.
