The material of the frames is Tr90, made from nylon and carbon fiber, organically compatible and safe to the skin, even after a prolonged use. It is 20% lighter that other conventional materials and it offers more protection against crashes and tractions. It provides a high resilience without deformation when exposed to high temperatures, after being bent, it reverts to its original shape.
The glasses wearability allows a perfect vision when shifting your eyes from the pedals to the road. This particular aspect enables the athlete to stay focused on his performance without interferences. The temples are strong and guarantee to stay put even in case of shocks or sudden head movements.
DELTA uses A-LENS™ made from scratch resistant polycarbonate base 6 non-centered to enable a fixed vision without side deformation. Their curve covers an optical cone of 180°, allowing an excellent protection against the wind and strong light, that often reflects on other sunglasses creating an eye blinding effect.
The shock absorbent, unbreakable material provides an excellent resilience.
Delta has a very elegant and sturdy packaging, made from black cardboard, weighing 1000gr. You will receive a box containing a pair of glasses, a little glasses-case made from technical breathable fabric, a microfiber cloth for cleaning, CE guarantee, basic string.
