New Partner: Alba Optics


3T/Q+M is riding some new eyewear this season. We spotted Alba Optics on our sister-squads in Italy and thought “those0A418E44-3560-4590-B861-CFDEF32518FD look great.” That’s really all I cared about in eyewear… until now.

These things are so nice. Honestly before Alba, I hadn’t noticed much of a difference between one set of glasses to another. Now, I’m spoiled. The lens clarity, weight, field of view, and photo chromatic-ness (they go from clear to dark auto-magically). I’m really not sure why all cycling lenses don’t do that. I was going to write a long, in-depth review, but instead, here are some of the messages that blew up my phone and our team Slack channel when the dudes got their new glasses. Commentary on Jay’s short legs left in for context/comedy.
