This Assos Zegho eXploit Sunglasses is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
Following the successful launch of the first four Zegho models, Assos are proudly introducing a new model called the eXploit. Technically, it is based on the original Zegho but features a new colour shade for the lens (brown) and a black/gold frame.
Brown Lens: The brown lens - which incorporates a flat spectrum and a yellow component - absorbs short wavelengths, so it enhances contrast and colour, making your surroundings stand out. Terrain details and potential road hazards are more visible.
The lens also reduces blue light, which, being close to ultraviolet on the light spectrum, is potentially harmful to the human eye. Zegho eXploit is recommended for medium to high light conditions. Compared to the black lens, it has slightly higher light transmission, making it a little more versatile and satisfactory for tunnel passages.
Zegho is eye protection equipment created by ASSOS Centro Studio and its friends at Carl Zeiss Vision Sunlens. Zegho feels different than any other sunglasses you have ever put on your face. Riding with Zegho, you feel that it is engineered to be your ideal high performance cycling companion. It is! Follow your heart. Ride it to believe it.
Assos Tunnel Vision:
Tunnel Vision is an ASSOS innovation produced by Carl Zeiss Vision Sunlens. With Tunnel Vision, the lower third of the lens is clear, followed by a sharp change to reduced light transmission in the upper two-thirds of the lens. This allows a cyclist to enter a tunnel and or shadow environment without worrying that his world will go dark. An easy 25-degree lift of the head is all that's required to enjoy a clear yet still-protected view ahead, allowing the rider to keep his eyewear in its place and his hands on the bars. Amazingly simple, amazingly functional.
Zegho provides protection in every sense of the word. In the sporting goods world, only a few select companies can claim to have branded Carl Zeiss Vision lenses. And little ASSOS is one of them.
No Polarized Lenses
Polarized lenses are great - for fishing. For cycling, they're not what you want. Zegho was created to be the ultimate high performance cycling-specific eye protection. Its job is to give you perfect, fully protected 1:1 performance vision when cycling. What you see is what's there. No filters, no gimmicks, no distortion. That's what you want when cycling.
Eye protection is vital for most outdoor activities, especially cycling as debri and spray from the road can be flicked up into your face. A pair of good quality sports sunglasses will help to keep the wind, insects, rain, spray and dust out of your eyes. Dark ones will cut down on light so you don't have to squint to see where you're going. All glasses should eliminate harmful UV rays, protecting your retinas from damage. So that you can protect your eyes in all conditions, glasses with interchangeable lenses are useful. Either that, or get yourself one pair for bright, dull and dark light conditions.
Assos are one of the world's pioneers and specialists in producing high quality cycling clothes and accessories. They are located in a region of Switzerland that has maintained a long standing tradition in first class textile engineering. In the 1970's, Toni Maier-Moussa, founder and chairman of Assos accidently invented lycra cycling clothing, whilst trying to create the ultimate bicycle. During the wind tunnel tests of the first ever carbon-fibre bike, Toni inadvertently found that lycra downhill ski racing suits had much less drag than the woolen-knitted cycling clothes of the time. To this day Assos firmly believe in total product competence, delivering optimum function and comfort, by researching and making its cycling clothing and accessories from the very best materials.
