Ducati teams up with eyewear company Carrera on a line of sunglasses

If you’ve been following the Ducati Lenovo MotoGP 2022 team closely, you might have noticed that luxury eyewear brand Carrera is a sponsor. The two companies have partnered on this 2022-2026 deal, but there’s more than just another sponsor graphic on the team fairings. As you might have guessed, there’s also a range of co-branded eyewear to enjoy if you don’t like getting the sun in your eyes. We’ll take a look.

The Ducati-Carrera eyewear line is inspired by the lines of the Panigale V4, according to the two companies. The temples of each eyewear frame are where you need to look, as they are modeled after the profile of the Panigale V4. Plus, according to Ducati and Carrera, each frame design has been specifically engineered to fit perfectly under your favorite motorcycle helmet. It’s definitely a relief for anyone who wears glasses on their bike!

Unsurprisingly, for the 2022 season, this also means Pecco Bagnaia and Jack Miller will model sunglasses made as part of the Ducati-Carrera collection. You can find both riders in promotional material for the eyewear range, and you’ll no doubt see one or both of them sporting a nice pair of sunglasses from time to time in the paddock.

A total of five regular models and one limited edition model make up the 2022 Ducati-Carrera goggle range. Carduc 001/S, Carduc 002/S, Carduc 003/S, Carduc 004/S and Carduc 006/S are all available in four colors each. These can be regular non-prescription sunglasses, or most of them (except the Carduc 006/S) can be fitted with corrective lenses if desired. Prices range from $125 to $205 for this line of glasses, and of course can be higher if you opt for corrective lenses. All of these glasses come with a free storage case to store them when you’re not wearing them.

The Ducati-Carrera Limited Edition Superlight goggles were only available in one colorway, Gray Red. Unfortunately, they are already sold out, as the number produced was limited to only 500 pieces sold worldwide. These frames have been made from a combination of carbon fiber and titanium, making them extremely light on your face. Unlike other goggles in the Ducati-Carrera collection, the limited-edition Superlights were not available to be fitted with corrective lenses.

The Ducati-Carrera collection goggles are available for purchase from Carrera through the company’s website if you’re looking to pick up a pair. The brand sells worldwide, so prices may vary depending on your region.
