The Roka GP 1 sunglasses were designed to meet the challenges that extreme cyclists face. In the middle of a race, you don’t want to have to pause to wipe off the lenses of your glasses. You also don’t want them fogging up on you, or falling off your head, or just being uncomfortable over the hours of slogging through a race. The GP 1 glasses are ultralight, which helps immensely when it comes to comfort. Heavy glasses make long rides seem even longer. The GP 1 also have an unrestricted forward field of vision, which is so important in the middle of a pack or when throttling down a narrow mountain trail. The glasses lower rim also offers increased security while also providing maximum protection from the environment.
The lenses are also coated on both the front and the back. Combined with open venting, the glasses are almost completely fog proof. The enhances airflow also increases comfort, but it does so without compromising the glass’s protective function.
With so many features, it’s not surprise that riders participating in Strade Bianchi, Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, and Leadville are opting for these great glasses.
Roka reports that the GP 1 will be an “extremely limited“ production run that will be available sometime in May, so it may be a good idea to pre-register for a pair.
