POC’s new Propel sunglasses promise aero gains and panoramic views

It was only a matter of time. Bikes have been optimized, jerseys and shorts trimmed until not an ounce of fabric remains to flap, and helmets sculpted in the wind tunnel. Now, thanks to POC, we have the first claim for aerodynamic sunglasses. Our list of the best cycling sunglasses contains many heavily wrapped specs, but to our knowledge, none of them claim to be aerodynamically optimized.

The POC Propel sunglasses, as seen adorning the faces of the riders from EF Education-Easypost at the Tour Down Under have been designed using CFD analysis and wind tunnel testing to be as slippery as possible.
