    rapha apple cases1

    Rapha likes collaborations and its latest is with Apple, with the London-based clothing firm developing a range of cases and sleeves for MacBooks and iPads... but hang on, didn’t Rapha already launch this back in June? That’s what we thought as well, so we’ve asked them. It would appear where previously you could only buy these products through the Apple store, you can now only buy them directly from Rapha, so maybe that is what has changed.

    100% have launched the Glendale sunglasses, offering eyewear technology that make them performance-orientated, but also inspired by Peter Sagan's apparent love of vintage Americana.  

    Review: 100% Speedcraft SL

    They have the signature massive lenses that 100% are becoming renowned for, which they say offers an unobstructed view. They're made out of lightweight polycarbonate with 100% UV protection, and the frame is the 100% TR90 that is shatterproof and Italian-made.  

    100% sagan 3

    Peter looking all suave as usual, even in sunnies bigger than his head

    100% say the idea for the Glendale was borne out of Peter Sagan's love of vintage Americana and muscle cars, creating 'timeless styling' and yet no compromise on performance.

    If that all sounds appealing then the Glendales are available to buy now for £164.99, and for the money you get a clear replacement lens, vintage style hard case, extra nose pieces to customise your fit and a microfiber cleaning pouch. Head over to the 100% website for more info.
