    Motorcycle touring in Nepal: the adventure of the Riding Pandas

    Anna and Andrea's motorbike excursion exploring the Asian continent and its wonders was a unique and exciting experience, thanks also to the glasses provided by Emblema. These glasses are ideal for touring, designed to be worn under the helmet thanks to their short temples (H), which are the most important feature of the entire range.

    But what are all the reasons why Anna and Andrea chose to wear our motorbike glasses for such a demanding trip?

    The best glasses under the helmet

    Every motorcyclist knows how uncomfortable it can be to wear glasses under a helmet when riding a motorcycle and how annoying it is to have to take it off or shift it around in order to put on or take off your glasses. The handcrafted Emblema glasses, on the other hand, are eyeglasses and sunglasses for those who use helmets. Designed for motorcyclists, in addition to their unrivalled lightness, they ensure optimal vision and offer absolute comfort when pressed by the helmet padding while riding.

    The best windproof motorbike glasses

    The H temples, patented to be worn under the helmet (Special for Helmet Wear), have a characteristic ultra-flat section (7/10 of a millimetre thick) and their length is “undersized” compared to the standard length of all other sports glasses. Extremely comfortable under any type of helmet, even a full-face helmet, Emblema glasses are also patented for use with an open visor helmet (jet helmet, typical when riding a custom motorcycle) and guarantee a perfect fit even at high speeds.

    The best protective motorcycle glasses

    Despite their lightness and extra-thin frame, Emblema glasses are robust and resistant, motorcycle protective glasses perfect for any adventure. Wraparound, with a curved design to cover the orbital area well, they only mount Nylon lenses with internal anti-reflective coating, made by Carl ZEISS, which offer 5-6 times more impact resistance than polycarbonate lenses. All sunglass lenses are also treated with an anti-reflective coating that is applied to the inner surface of the lens to eliminate internal reflections and allow sharper vision through the lens. Emblema glasses thus guarantee excellent visibility, no image distortion, impact and scratch resistance and durability.

    The best prescription sunglasses for riding

    Highly performing in terms of fit and lens type, Emblema glasses are also perfect for those who need prescription glasses for riding, like the two Riding Pandas. In fact, on Emblema glasses the mounting of corrective lenses, prescription sunglasses, photochromic lenses or bifocal lenses is guaranteed by the many applications already carried out and tested by the best laboratories in the industry.

    All these reasons led Anna and Andrea to choose Emblema and to return from Nepal with many new memories, without a single moment having been ruined by the discomfort that other glasses often cause on long journeys.

    Thanks guys and see you next adventure!
