Everysight announce launch details for their Raptor Smartglasses

The AR smart shades with built-in GPS and a real-time viewable display will be available to pre-order from January 2018 at earlybird prices

Everysight promise a "ride experience unlike anything else" using the Raptor glasses, with the Augmented Reality providing real-time data in front of you while you ride. 

Garmin's new Varia Vision provides heads-up performance 
Oakley partner with Intel for Radar Pace eyewear

They're certainly not the first pair of smart shades we've seen, with Garmin's Varia Vision, Oakley's Radar Pace and the Recon Jets all receiving mixed feedback from reviewers and customers. Everysight are promising a clearer display and more viewable data than their competitors, with the Patented Beam tech providing a sharp, semi-transparent display that can show your heart rate, cadence, speed, distance and power at all times. They've got Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity, GPS and GLONASS built in to ensure no drop-outs during navigation, and you get 8 hours of run time from a single charge.  


Everysight say the semi-transparent display is actually safer than relying on looking down at a head unit when riding in traffic or on technical sections - it also gives message and call notifications from your phone, useful for those who may be tempted to try to grab their phone from a back pocket. 

You can even use voice commands to alter the settings, or swipe and tap on the touch pad located on the right temple of the glasses (alternatively they also sell a handlebar controller separately) and there's a companion Raptor app to share all your data through Strava and social media. A built-in HD camera can also capture images and short videos, useful for any Relive fanatics.

The Raptors will come in three colours (black, black and green or white and blue) and are priced at €749 for 16GB versions and €809 for 32GB. Everysight are also running a special 'invitational' promotional price for early pre-orders of €579 for the 16GB and €639 for the 32GB - UK customers can register and will receive the invitations in January 2018, with the Raptors shipping out in April '18. Everysight will also sell accessories on top such as a handlebar control system, tinted visors and RX frames.

Arriving at in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
