Taking stylistic cues from cycling getups of the ‘80s and ‘90s, the Alba Optics Delta Sequoia VZUM Mr Bronze delivers a wraparound style and protection in a lightweight package. Handmade in Italy, these sportsman’s shades include the Alba Optics shatterproof, scratch-resistant VZUM lenses of ultralight polycarbonate in sepia tone. Cutting back on glare and boasting a UV400 rating, these breathable, wind-buffering shades are tailor-made for the road-hungry cyclist and other outdoor athletes.
The tortoiseshell frames of the Alba Optics Delta Sequoia VZUM Mr Bronze are made from carbon fiber so they’re featherweight yet tough as nails — just what the doctor ordered when it comes to a pro-level cyclist’s needs. The whole delivery package is pretty classy, too, what with the sunglasses box and the breathable drawstring pouch, plus a microfibre cloth for easy-peasy cleaning. These guys are so face-friendly retro-chic, you just might have trouble taking them off, even when the ride’s over.
