This particular maiden collection features a series of sunglasses that purportedly take inspiration from Ducati’s rabidly popular supermachine, the Panigale V4.
You heard right – Ducati made sure to include some extra aesthetic edges to make these sunglasses hold more than the Team Red logo.
“The temples of each eyeglass frame are where you need to look, as they’re modeled after the profile of the Panigale V4,” explains the report from RideApart.
“Additionally, Ducati and Carrera say, each frame design was crafted specifically so they’ll fit nicely under your favorite motorcycle helmet.”
All told, five models are available on Carrera’s website (the Carduc 001/S, Carduc 002/S, Carduc 003/S, Carduc 004/S, and Carduc 006/S), with each purportedly coming in four different colors.
Given most of these are compatible with prescription lenses, and the price range is manageable (from $125 to $205 each), we could actually see this being a popular item – especially given the units fit in our helmets.
Big gracias for that one, Ducati.
