Kabuto will release 3 types (8 models in total) of new eyewear "NB" series for those who have just started sports bicycles and those who have started to commute by bicycle.

There are various reasons for starting a bicycle as one of your hobbies, such as for health, for eco-friendly, for refreshment, for racing and in addition, as a measure against the recent new coronavirus circumstance, the number of people who use bicycles for commuting to work and school while avoiding crowds is increasing, and the number of cases where they buy sports bicycles are increasing. When riding a bicycle, it is important to wear eyewear for eye health and good visibility, that is, for safety.

However, for beginners in sports bicycles, there have been few bicycle eyewear products that fit the needs, such as the design being oriented towards full-scale competition and the costs not matching. The NB series eyewear is created with an easy-to-accept design and affordable price, while stripping away such "excessive" parts.

In other words, the NB series was developed so that many users can enjoy their bicycles with more peace of mind, and can be worn stylishly as fashion for daily use.
