Review – Koo Supernova Strade Bianche Ltd Edition Photochromic Cycling Sunglasses

Koo Supernova Strade Bianche Ltd Edition Photochromic Sunglasses
I am a strong advocate of wearing protective glasses year-round when cycling; in the winter they shield your eyes from wind, road spray, and grit; then, on sunnier days they protect your retinas from UV rays as well. To account for low light levels and night riding in winter months, a pair of adaptable photochromic sunglasses is the perfect solution when considering the best sunglasses for cycling... the Koo Supernova sunglasses are the best photochromic option I have found to date.

The limited edition Koo Supernova Strade Bianche Edition sunglasses are subtly branded with the name of the iconic Italian Spring Classic race, while the design and functionality is the same superb lightweight set-up found in the standard Supernova glasses from Koo.

The Supernova glasses are ultralight at just 22 grams per pair; they use a frameless single lens that is shatter-proof and anti-reflective, while providing 100 percent UV protection.

The photochromic lens quickly adapts to the riding light levels – ranging from a Cat 1 to a Cat 3 in terms of shading. The lack of frame means the lens offers a superb field of vision, with next to no obscuration of line of sight. The polycarbonate is also treated with a hydrophobic anti-drop technology to reduce water build up on the outside of the lens, which might infringe your sight.

Super stable on your nose and temples thanks to the flexible arms and grippy nose bridge, the Supernova mean you can keep your eyes protected and your vision clear, no matter how bad the weather conditions get. Having ridden the Strade Bianchi Grand Fondo in 2017, I know only too well how challenging the conditions can be on that race — these glasses would be the perfect companion!
