100% has launched two new pairs of cycling sunglasses, the Eastcraft and Westcraft. Both have an aviator-like silhouette, but the Westcraft design is rounded and the Eastcraft design is squarer in shape, bearing a passing resemblance to Oakley’s Sutro design. Prices start from £169.99 (pricing in other territories is TBC).

Unusually, the models can be used with both a singular shield lens or separate dual lenses. The glasses’ V-latch locking mechanism across the bridge of the nose secures both lens types, and contributes to a distinctive look that is unmistakably 100% in style.

The glasses also have removable side ‘shields’, which 100% says give extra protection from the elements. The Eastcraft will be offered in four different frame/lens spec combinations, while the Westcraft will be offered in five different guises.

Novel characteristics aside, the Eastcraft and Westcraft models adopt many of the features 100% includes as standard on its glasses. The 5.5-base, cylindrical lenses are said to be treated to repel water and muck, and the frames are made from durable TR 90 Grilamid plastic.

100% also includes a hard case, microfibre cloth, alternate-fit nose pad and a clear-lens option as standard.

The high-profile endorsement of Peter Sagan for several years has worked wonders for the American brand. It has been able to successfully move into a space dominated by Oakley, applying its experience in motocross goggles to good effect.

The Eastcraft and Westcraft models are available now and test samples are on their way to BikeRadar, so check back in the near future for full reviews.
