Finally an Update
Firstly I must apologise for the delay on this, it has been an incredibly slow process but we are now getting there and we can finally start to get excited.
The reasons for the delay the prototype did not enable you to swap lenses, which although is expected may not always be necessary. So after a lot of conversations, this is now sorted and we have a lovely button system to change them.
The most positive news, because of the delay means we have been able to negotiate with Carl Zeiss to supply their global leading lenses, which will mean we have the best clarity and quality lenses on our frames.
After this we have been struggling to get the nose pad right, we have looked at several options, but we have decided to go with the most comfortable fit and less likely to slip.
So now we are at the point where we are looking to make the moulds, finally!
The design brief was fairly simple and based on the demands of cyclist, wanting a single lens frame with an unobstructed view when in the drop position, which will also suit a lot of other sports for similar reasons.
The ability to change lenses easily was also a criterion, but having looked at the competition they needed to be more robust.
Also comfortable and light which fits with the NAKED:RUNNER ethos!
The centre rim which will make the frame more rigid than completely rimless making them less likely to snap.
All in all, I believe we are almost there and have one of the best wrap arounds on the market.
If all goes to plan we will be shipping in November or December
In the meantime, we just want to get an idea on numbers so if you are interested in the offer price then please enter your details below
