Ekoi release Perso Evo 9 shades, "the world's first four in one sunglasses"

The ever-evolving French brand have launched shades that are fully customisable, with the upper and lower parts of the frames removable and lenses courtesy of Zeiss

Following the one-size bib shorts and jersey that eliminates tan lines, Ekoi have struck again with 'four in one' shades, with frames that can be configured in different ways ranging from full frame to frameless depending on your preferences. 

Ekoi promise 'no more tan lines' with Solair jersey
Review: Ekoi Morpho one size bibshorts


​They weigh from 35g in their frameless guise up to 43g with full frames (see image above for the four different styles) and the nosepiece is also adjustable. Using Ekoi's online configurator for the shades, countless different colour and style combinations are possible, among them the French, Spanish and Italian national flags for the top of the frames (no Union Jack for the British patriots out there unfortunately) and options to change the lens type.    
All of the lens options are courtesy of revered optics brand Zeiss, made out of tough polycarbonate and featuring anti-reflection and 'Ri.PEL' water repellent treatments, plus full UVA and UVB protection. 


They're currently being worn by the Quick-Step Floors team at the Giro including Elia Viviani and Fabio Aru (as you can see we've tried to mock up some Maglia Rosa-themed shades on Ekoi's site, although the pink is a little off), and if you like the look of them you'll be pleased to know they're not outrageously expensive either; if you choose a set with the orange or yellow Category 1 Zeiss lenses they come in at under £80, while the Category 3 mirrored options are £87.56, and the Photochromatic versions are £105. Check them out on Ekoi's website to get designing your own; or alternatively hold on for our review, we'll be looking to get some in soon...  

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.
