SPATZ "SHIELD" Glasses - Translucent Ice Grey #SHIELD


Regular price $289.99 Sale

The design brief for the brand new Spatz "SHIELD" glasses was very simple: To design and engineer eyewear which offer more protection and a better field of vision than any other glasses on the planet; with particular focus on when you are cycling in an aggressive / aero position.

Developed purely for cycling (and being worn in a cycling position), Spatz "SHIELD" glasses offer a sphere of vision and a level of protection that we have sought in cycling specific eyewear for decades. No longer will your vision be impeded by your glasses frames as you hunker down into an aero tuck. No longer will debris spray up into your eyes, right when you require razor sharp vision to rail the next apex. Road racing: Check. Gravel: Check. TTs: Check. Technical Crits: Check. SHIELD has got you covered.

Developed and tweaked through countless renders and physical prototypes, the new Spatz "SHIELD" glasses are designed by lifetime racing cyclists to create eyewear that you will wear from the very start to the very finish of your race/ride.

The pivotal design feature of the new Spatz "SHIELD" glasses is the position and rake angle of the lenses. The frame architecture has been specifically engineered to allow the lens to sit in an optimal position in relation to your eyes, cheekbones, eyebrows and nose. When we ride a bike (especially in an aggressive/aero position), our requirements for eyewear changes dramatically; our head tilts downwards and our eyes focus upwards towards the horizon. We have engineered eyewear which represents a seismic shift from what has been available. Until now.

The Spatz "SHIELD" glasses transmit a feeling of visor-like protection and strength. You are truly shielded from the elementz...

Spatz shield

I have worn most sports specific Oakley's from the original M-frame up to more modern jawbreaker, flight jacket etc. and more recently a couple of 100% models and have been impressed.
When the shield sunglasses where released I was tempted to try them and glad I did. Must admit at first I thought they may be too big but after wearing they are spot on.
The quality is really good for both the frame and lenses with the highlight being the photochromic which is genuinely an all weather lens.
On top of that although the initial price is quite high the cost of replacement lenses is less than half what most manufacturers charge.
I would highly recommend these for anyone looking for a high quality alternative to the big names.

Just what I needed.

Amazing field of view. Photochromatic lens good for near darkness or blazing Hong Kong summer sunshine. Recommended

amazing shades!


The best cycling glasses I’ve ever had

Great for intended purpose

When I first put these on I figured oh no, got to send back. They are huge even for shields and look like scuba goggles. But I tried them walking the beach and yep they are great if you get over the look. Lenses are clear, color change is the best I’ve had, and the field of view is amazing. They do not move on your head without feeling tight. I think they would be great for skiing and definitely for cycling.. I look forward to biking with them. Just don’t plan to wear them at the bar unless you want to look like a dork. A slightly smaller version would be perfect.

Thanks Steve!
