Scott’s Leap sunglasses are their best sports model to date, bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Oakley Radars – which is no bad thing in our view.
The fit is exceptionally good, with the twin-radius curved arms giving a perfect three-point fit while the soft rubber nosepiece means there’s no bounce at all no matter how rough the ride gets. Helmet strap compatibility is spot on too.
The lens gives a clear, unobstructed view, they sit high enough that the brow frame doesn’t hamper head-down visibility on the bike, and they’re ideal for more upright riding.
We would have liked a slightly softer, narrower rubber nosepiece to fine-tune the distance between face and glasses a bit more, but overall we really liked wearing the Leaps.
