They look like early 90s Oakley Eye Shades.

For some strange reason the Prius in the background keeps catching my attention, and it feels very weird associating Sagan with Prius.

Maybe they gave it to him along with a ton of cash to wear those glasses. Seriously there is more to the story about the glasses. Luxotica doesn't loose a marketing dream like Sagan. I'm guessing either:

1. Cav through a fit after loosing the WC and got LUX to pull their endorsement of Sagan
2. Sagan is playing a long game and backing lesser known products for an equity share (e.g., Osmo)

^ I vote for #2.

I would have told Cav to start packing before Sagan

Totally equity driven.

Style-wise they look a little less "crackhead" than Oakleys and perform pretty well. At the end of the day I wouldn't be seen dead in any cycling glasses off the bike.

All of them will be, the reduction in the number of teams has been postponed.

Yeah, but they just renamed themselves UAE Abu Dhabi, so still the same team but with middle eastern backing instead of Chinese.
