Skharab marks the introduction of a new category in ASSOS Eye Protection, tuned specifically for road and off-road racing. It pulls various design cues from our Zegho eyewear, such as its signature rimless profile, fully adjustable nosepiece, and featherlight feel, yet it’s bred more for speed, protection, and visual clarity in changing terrain and shifting light conditions.
We began the design process by working with athletes across both disciplines, building prototype shapes that worked with a variety of face shapes and helmets. What we came away with is led by its single wraparound lens that promotes an unobstructed field of view in both aggressive road and off-road riding positions. The tapered, airflow-channeling temples lock the top corners of the lens, wrapping back above the ear for a smooth, secure fit. The lens itself is an impact-resistant nylon, selected primarily for its durability and low weight, offered in both a light-adapting photochromic option and a standard version that’s tuned for medium light. Both options provide 100% UV protection, accentuate contrast, and enhance visibility on the road or trail. The Skharab is engineered in Switzerland, handmade in Italy, and comes with a protective hard case and cleaning cloth.
