Rowers have a requirement for lightweight, wrap-around sport sunglasses that are tough enough to withstand all that can be thrown at them on the water. The lenses need 100% UVA / UVB protection and should preferably be polarised, to reduce the effects of glare from the water. Rapid Eyewear sunglasses can meet the demands of the most rigorous rowing conditions; the provision of interchangeable lenses with most pairs ensures they remain useful all year-round, whatever the light.
Every pair of Rapid Eyewear rowing sunglasses with interchangeables is supplied with a retainer strap, sturdy carry case and microfibre cleaning cloth. Use the low light Category 0 lenses for dull days, or early morning / late evening work-outs; beige polarised lenses for hazy, light cloud or intermittent sunshine; grey mirror for bright, sunny days.
Rapid Eyewear products have been the number one choice for many rowers over the years, including the Durham University boat crew, and the Atlantic Lions, who completed an epic trans-Atlantic crossing (see photo, above left).
