The Gladiat8r concept

The Gladiat8r concept is inspired by gladiator helmets of ancient Rome. Its weight is distributed across the entire surface, a carefully spaced “ribcage” ensuring the shades remain in place during use but also reduce friction from the usual support areas such as the nose-bridge and ears.

The frame comes in 3 different sizes and is adjustable through a range of rubber attachments that brace the ribs on the frame (tho I don’t see ‘em). There’s sort of this cool blend of functional utility with urban street aesthetics to give it a modern, youthful hand. I can see head ventilation won’t be a problem but the idea of each rib digging into my skull should I tumble isn’t appealing.
