Rudy Project Tralyx Sunglasses Ranked No. 1 in Extensive Test by Cycling Active Magazine


(Press Release) CROYDON, UNITED KINGDOM – Cycling Active Magazine, a subsidiary publication of the 125-year-old Cycling Weekly, has named the Rudy Project Tralyx as the “Best on Test” when compared to 10 other high-end performance sunglass brands. The lineup of glasses, which included the Oakley Radar EV Path Polarized and the Bollé 6th Sense, were tested over all types of weather conditions and compared by key features such as lenses and fit.

“The Tralyx proved to be the best glasses on test in terms of fit,” wrote Cycling Active Gear Editor Jamie Darlow. “I forgot I was wearing them on more than one occasion, dropping them when taking my helmet off after a ride. Part of this is down to the low weight of the Tralyx, and part is due to the extremely flexible frame that twists without breaking around the helmet. Ventilation is first-rate and although there’s less coverage than the POC glasses, wind protection at speed was the best on the test – nothing seems to get through.”

Cycling Active tested the 10 pairs of glasses in the sun, then during increasingly wet and windy autumn and winter rides. The sunglasses were also paired with a number of road and mountain helmets to get a feel for how each felt with different lid set-ups, and were even taken off road to see how they each handled the mud. Each pair was ranked on a scale of 10, with the Rudy Project Tralyx being the only sunglass to obtain a perfect score.

The Tralyx features brand new Rudy Project technologies, including the PowerFlow system, which combines an unobstructed field of peripheral vision with an heat dissipation solution. This is also the first sunglass in the Technically Cool lineup to showcase Adaptive Tips, which are designed for a precise fit. The rear portions naturally flex when positioned behind the ears or when inserted into a Rudy Project helmet dock or traditional helmet vents, eliminating irritation on the rider’s skull. It also features the latest fully adjustable nosepiece technology, the Ergonose IX.

Additionally, the Tralyx incorporates Rudy Project’s Quick Change Interchangeable Lens System, which allows the user to easily change lenses and manage any light condition. For the rider who prefers the same lens for all-day use, the Tralyx is available with Rudy Project’s unbreakable photochromic ImpactX-2 lenses. Darlow added: “We opted for a nearly clear lens, which proved great in low light and under trees but also took the edge off road shine when the sun emerged, thanks to its photochromic lens that adjusts to varying light conditions. If you can stump up the price the Tralyx is our first choice.”

Like all Rudy Project frames, the Tralyx is covered by a replacement lens guarantee, which covers all lens damage from use or activity, and a three-year frame warranty. It also comes equipped with a soft pouch and hard case for added protection.

The Rudy Project Tralyx is available at or any authorized dealer.
