The Rudy Project Cutline are an all new model of performance eyewear from the Italian manufacturer, featuring a lens specifically designed for durability, field of view, and demands of riding road, gravel, mtb, and cyclocross.

The wraparound shield design incorporates modular bumpers, that may enhance ventilation and prevent lens fogging. The Cutline can also be worn without bumpers, for maximum field of view.

A quick change system looks to allow simple and easy lens swaps—and this is a feature which cannot be appreciated enough for any sunglasses with swappable lenses.

The temple-tips and nosepiece are made of a non-slip material which is replaceable, and adjustable and can be reshaped to fit a wide range of face and head shapes.
