Latest eyewear from the firm to be shown off at the world's best-known cycle race

Shimano eyes Tour de France

Shimano’s latest limited edition eyewear product will be seen from tomorrow at the start of the Tour de France – the S70X and the S50F.

First up, the S70X features an ‘outspoken’ design with a fully integrated metal fit design for stable construction and Beta-titanium wires for comfort. Shimano will also show the S50R – the successor to the Zenith – which includes a one piece Shield lens for maximum protection, ideal vision and aerodynamics.

Sandy Casar, Jeremy Roy (of the Française des Jeux team), Kenny van Hummel and Fumiyuki Beppu (of the Skil-Shimano team) will sport the new frames from Saturday July 4th.

Both models were developed using 3D Fit Technology and extra comfortable adjustable large nose pads.
