Silhouette sunglasses – first look

Lightweight women's glasses perfect for the outdoor market

Silhouette Sun, Futura sunglasses

When the sun eventually breaks through (or we’re lucky enough to head overseas for some tri action) a good pair of sunnies are a must for training and racing.


Hoping to bridge the gap between style and performance are Silhouette Sun, a lifestyle brand that have long been favourites for outdoor activities.

The glasses are very lightweight and tougher than they initially look, featuring a hingeless design and titian aluminium frames to make them light yet durable. Each pair also features anti-glare polarisation and blue light technology with 100% UVA, B and C protection.

Prices from £130 (Futura design pictured £300) from Silhouette Sun.
