Assos glasses certainly made a splash last year when they were launched and the range has further expanded with the Exploit.
Still with the same lightweight construction the lens really is the centrepiece. Made by Zeiss I’ve found nothing better. This version uses a solid brown tint, rather than a graduated version and I’ve got to say I prefer it.
After just a couple of minutes you quickly forget you’re wearing them, they’re that light and unobtrusive and I really like the lack of frame, but then that’s not unique to Assos.
When it comes to durability I’ve been astounded that there isn’t even a light scratch on them; they appear to be super durable. As for the cost, well, it’s probably best to gloss over that one because they’re not cheap, but for me it’s their only downside.
