You'll have seen athletes with nasal strips across the bridge of the nose, right? Well, Ride 100% have just launched a new pair of glasses, the Speedcraft Air's which do two jobs in one - protect your eyes and increase nasal dilation, no joke, this is a real thing!
Tthe Speedcraft Air is pretty much the same as other 100% glasses with a TR90 frame, rubber coated temples, and a HiPER lens with Hydroilo water and oil resistant coating. Where these glasses differ is at the nose piece which is magnetic using stick-on magnetic pads for your nose to hold the glasses in place and allow you to increase your nasal dilation which it is claimed improves breathing and therefore performance. Peter Sagan modeled them recently in the Tour Down Under.
The strips attach to your nose with an adhesive that is sweat and moisture resistant and you can't use the glasses without them. With the nose strips attached to your face, the glasses are then magnetically attracted to the strips. You then control the actual amount of nasal dilation by rotating the small wheel above the nose piece.
The pack includes 20 nose strips and 10 cleaning towelettes so you will get 10 wears before you’ll have to purchase a refill. News of these glasses was leaked back in January but there are officially available now at a price of $325 USD, we'll get UK prices for you as soon as we know them so you can channel your inner Sagan....
