New collaboration with SCICON

Essilor® Sun Solution™ is extremely proud to announce its new partnership with the SCICON brand, leader in high performance bike bags and accessories for riders and active people, for the launch of their first collection of high-end sunglasses.

Who is SCICON?

Specialized in high-performance sunglasses, bike bags and accessories for cyclists, Italian brand SCICON was created in 1980. “How can cyclists travel safely with their bike?”  By responding to this problem over the years, the brand has managed to help many athletes around the world. Today, SCICON has become the most popular brand among cyclists, combining comfort, design, innovation and technical solutions.

 “We analyzed the SCICON proposal and immediately realized that they have everything they need to be able to obtain important results in the sport sunglasses market. Their search for details and pursuit of finding the perfect visual solution finds us in tune and we are looking forward to developing new vision solutions together.” - Christophe Mayet, Marketing VP of Essilor® Sun Solution™

Essilor® Sun Solution™ x SCICON: the partnership

To launch the first line of solar products from SCICON, Essilor® Sun Solution™ developed an innovative product with NXT® material combined with Varia™ photochromic technology. NXT® is our proprietary No Compromise material which combines the best of both worlds: the optical clarity of mineral lenses and the lightweight and impact resistance of organic lenses.

From light to dark according to the environment conditions, the photochromic VARIA™ technology provides you the right level of protection when needed: every time, everywhere and in all conditions. By partnering with Essilor® Sun Solution™, the brand specialized in cycling equipment has been able to benefit from sunglasses specifically designed for it and for athletes who want to combine performance and lifestyle, regardless of whether they are cycling enthusiasts.
