November 2022: ASSOS end of production sale item. Limited sizes/quantities available.
ASSOS eyewear developed with a single wraparound lens that enhances visibility in aggressive high performance road and off-road racing positions.
Skharab marks the introduction of a new category in ASSOS Eye Protection, tuned specifically for road and off-road riding/racing. It pulls various design cues from ASSOS Zegho eyewear, such as its signature rimless profile, fully adjustable nose piece, and featherlight feel. Engineered for speed, protection and visual clarity in changing terrain and shifting light conditions.
Skharab Lens: The single nylon lens features an aerodynamic low-profile shape, while still retaining ASSOS signature rimless platform for unobstructed vision and a superlight feel. 100% UV protection, impact-resistant and BPA-free.
Pluto Grey: A grey photochromic lens that adapts to changing light conditions for added versatility. Light Transmission: 77% - 17%. Light Conditions: Low Light to Medium Light. Contrast: Neutral. Base lens color: Grey.
Neptune Blue: A blue tint ideal for medium light conditions. Light Transmission: 12%. Light Conditions: Medium Light. Contrast: Increased. Base lens color: Grey.
National Red: A red/gold tint ideal for bright light conditions. Light Transmission: 19%. Light Conditions: Bright Light. Contrast: Increased. Base lens color: Grey.
The tapered, airflow-channeling temples lock the top corners of the lens, wrapping back above the ear for a smooth, secure fit. The lens itself is an impact-resistant nylon, selected primarily for its durability and low weight, offered in both a light-adapting photochromic option and a standard version that’s tuned for medium light. The ASSOS Skharab is engineered in Switzerland, handmade in Italy and comes with a protective hard case and cleaning cloth.
