The design of Rudy Project's glasses has been developed in accordance with the practical requirements of sports lovers, on the basis of the principle: "Form Follows Performance".
Rudy Project's products, therefore, are directly inspired by performance and are created in pure, dynamic and ergonomic forms.
Sports activities differ quite significantly in terms of body movement and position and also in terms of the different types of visual requirements. For example, a cyclist holds a crouched and composed position in the saddle for very long periods, focusing on the road, while on the other hand, a tennis player makes rapid movements of the head in all directions, shifting the focus up and down and to the sides so as to hit the ball. These particular needs stimulate the design of the most highly-advanced sunglasses and prescription glasses for sports activities. The frame of the glasses plays a significant role in protecting the eyes against sunrays, on one hand, and in guaranteeing a full visual field on the other hand. The structure of Rudy Project glasses can be divided into three main types: Full-Rim, Half-Rim and Rimless.
GOZEN™ FULL RIM FRAME
The full-rim structure has a frame that surrounds the lenses in order to offer a barrier against the most intense sun rays. This type of frame is ideal for sports (beach volley, sailing, mountaineering...) in which the eyes are exposed to the intense action of sunrays, which may be direct from the sun, or come from reflecting surfaces such as snow, sand or water.
THE FULL RIM FRAME GUARANTEE TOTAL PROTECTION AGAINST SUNLIGHT, DUST AND WIND.
FULL RIM SUNGLASSES:
RYZER™ HALF RIM FRAME
In half-rim version, only the top part of the lens is secured to the frame. While, on one hand, this gives the glasses structural solidity, on the other hand, it ensures greater visibility than the full rim alternative. This type of design ensures perfect vision of the course and is ideal for disciplines like cycling and mountain biking where a perfect view of the terrain is required in order to avoid obstacles and to choose the best trajectory.
HALF RIM FRAME FOR A PERFECT VISION OF THE OBSTACLES AND OF THE COURSE
HALF RIM SUNGLASSES:
HYPERMASK™ RIMLESS FRAME
Certain sporting disciplines require the broadest possible visual field in order to optimise the athlete's performance (Baseball, Kite surfing, Tennis...). For these activities, we have designed specific sports glasses with a rimless structure. The absence of material surrounded the lens offers a broader field of vision and, at the same time, ensures a lighter, more balanced and flexible structure for the glasses.
