A sports eyewear leader for 30 years, Rudy Project is leading a race that knows no limits: the continuous pursuit of excellence in its materials, design and performance. Rudy Project is an established brand above all because of its performance sunglasses, RX solutions, as well as goggles and helmets of the highest technical level. It is a company that knows sports extremely well, and listens to the needs of its players in order to ensure winning solutions. Since 1985, Rudy Project has been a worldwide leading company for products made in Italy, and with a new generation of leadership in the form of founder Rudy Barbazza’s own two sons, Cristiano and Simone, that success is sure to continue.


“We represent the top range of sporting eyewear , fully designed and  manufactured in Italy,” says Cristiano Barbazza, Chairman and CEO of the company. “To satisfy the needs of our athletes, we offer high-performance products which are highly customizable, such as our award-winning prescription solutions for athletes who need vision correction. Our customer base, which we manage to reach all over the world through optical and sports distribution channels, is often represented by very specific niche markets who recognize the value of our products.”


Established with the aim of improving the performance levels of athletes around the world, Rudy Project gained great success as a result of its constant investments in the development of new materials and technologies for lenses and frames. By making superior quality in each product part of its core ideology, the brand has experienced rapid growth and adoption by pros in every field.


Love for progress, passion for style and attention to quality have given rise to an exclusive collection of technologically advanced sports accessories. “Technically Cool” is an elegant but powerful slogan that best expresses the DNA of every Rudy Project creation. Used by more than ten thousand professional athletes in all sports, all over the world, it is no coincidence that Rudy Project has taken away countless awards and prestigious titles, such as “Best Aero Helmet” from “Triathlete Magazine”, “Timeless & Breakthrough Design” awards from “Men’s Journal”, two times “Gear of the Year” from “Outside Magazine”, and “Most Worn Helmet of the IRONMAN® World Championships” in Kona, Hawaii, for the last four consecutive years.
