These glasses may not enhance performance to the point that mimicking Alberto Contador’s victory salute is justified, but what works for El Pistolero definitely worked for our test team.

A low-profile and well-shaped frame features subtle vents to keep lenses fog-free, and it only enters your peripheral vision when riding low in the drops.

Curved high-clarity Zeiss lenses fully cover your field of view, so even side winds can’t blow-dry your eyes, and together with the inconspicuous frame design, made it easy to forget you were wearing glasses at all.

They may be expensive, but precision-ground, interchangeable lenses like these (both included) don’t come cheap.
