Skharab represents the introduction of a new category of ASSOS glasses and is specifically designed for road and off-road racing. Assos has adopted several features of the Zegho goggles for this model, including the rimless design, the fully adjustable bridge and the feather-light feel. Assos optimized the goggles for speed, protection, and crystal-clear vision in inconsistent ground conditions, and geared them for changing light conditions.
To come up with the design, Assos first consulted athletes from both disciplines and created prototypes that could be considered for many different head shapes and helmets. In the end, Assos opted for a model with monoglass that offers an unrestricted field of vision in steep riding positions, both on and off the road. The sealed temples with ventilation channel are attached to the top corners of the lens and gently hug the head with a secure fit over the ear. The lens itself is made of shatterproof nylon, which is mainly for its durability and light weight. It is available as a photochromic lens for varying light conditions and as a standard version for moderate light. The goggles offer 100% UV protection, increased contrast and improved vision on roads and off-road trails. The Skharab is designed in Switzerland, handmade in Italy and comes in a case with cleaning cloth.
