Overall


Performance

Our tester found the Rallys much more comfortable than the cheaper Bollé Kings (also reviewed here) to wear. The lenses are also a lighter tint, which is better for driving in low light conditions (such as mist or fog). The frame design wraps nicely around the face, too, which helps make sure the light goes through your lenses before it reaches your eyes.

Buying

The Rallys cost nearly £30 more than the same manufacturer's King glasses (if you compare the best web prices), but we reckon it's a price worth paying for the extra quality they offer. You get delivery and a sturdy fabric case thrown in.

Quality

Metal frames give the Rallys a much classier feel than the cheaper Kings. They don't feel quite as well made as the Serengetis, mind, but that is reflected in the price. Optical-quality polycarbonate lenses are inferior to glass, but do keep the price and the weight down.

Special features

For an extra £196 (taking the price to £315 in total), Bollé will fit some single-vision (not bi- or varifocal) prescription lenses. The Rallys filter out all UVA and UVB light, and a 'Carbo Glas' coating applied to both sides of the lenses protects against scratches.
