The first glasses from helmet brand Kask will be used by Pro Continental team Drapac Pro at Australia’s Tour Down Under next week.
Italian brand Kask provides the helmets for Team Sky, although Sky already has an eyewear sponsor in Oakley.
Kask says that the sunglasses are designed to work best with Kask helmets although, of course, there’s no reason why you have to use the two together.
Kask already makes visors for bike, ski and mountaineering helmets, but this is its first venture into sunglasses. The model pictured here looks a little like a Poc design in terms of shape and coverage.
Those are all the details we have at present. More info, including prices, will be revealed in spring, ahead of a summer launch.
