Shimano Introduces New S-PHYRE and AEROLITE Sunglasses

Shimano has introduced its newly redesigned, second-generation S-PHYRE and AEROLITE sunglasses, which feature RIDESCAPE lens technology that emphasizes colors and highlights surfaces across different types of terrain. In addition, the new S-PHYRE comprises an all-new magnetic lens system for quick and easy lens changes, while the AEROLITE brings exceptional visual performance, RX-CLIP compatibility, and modern style at a modest price for the everyday rider.

RIDESCAPE Lens Technology

SHIMANO’s proprietary RIDESCAPE lens technology offers six lens options that are tuned for different riding conditions and terrain types. From extremely sunny days on the road to riding through mixed shadows on a forest trail, or chasing the dimming light of an evening gravel ride, RIDESCAPE transmits the right amount of light to boost visibility. Details that would normally be washed out, dull, or flat become more clearly defined, vibrant, and vivid.

The new S-PHYRE features a straight upper rim with aerodynamic and foldable temples that are integrated with the frame and lens, while the radius-ed temples have been treated to a non-slip pattern for a secure fit and enduring comfort.

Additionally, the new magnetic lens system makes changing between and wiping clean Shimano RIDESCAPE lenses faster and easier than ever. Available in a range of colors and lens options, the S-PHYRE is aimed at road, trail, or gravel enthusiasts alike.

Worn by top contenders at World Cup cyclocross races this season, the new AEROLITE lives at the crossroads of function and fashion, featuring Shimano’s premium RIDESCAPE HC lens that are design to boost contrast and sharpen surface details, while the half-rim frame is aimed at delivering protection without obstructing the field of view.

Also, the AEROLITE frame was codeveloped with RX- CLIP, making it easy to add a prescription lens to the frame, whereby the clip attaches quickly and securely over the adjustable nose piece for a clear view of the road ahead.
