  • Aesthetically ProFlow sets a new benchmark with refined attention to detail and Italian craftsmanship. Characterised by the singular geometry of the patented Suspended-Hinge Geometry™: an evolution of the prize-winning system used in other Rudy Project eyewear solutions providing micrometrical adjustment of the temple tips. The sculptural ProFlow floating temples are forged in Kynetium, a revolutionary ultra-light aluminium allows for aerospace applications that blends lightness, robustness and elasticity.

  • One of the most innovative features in the Proflow™ is the new Integrated Air Conditioning™ system which makes novel use of the Venturi effect; a principle of fluid dynamics discovered by the Italian physicist Giovannia Venturi in 1797. Specifically crafted channels have been incorporated on the inner surface of the temple, increasing air velocity and reduces thermal shock to prevent fogging.

  • In addition to the new features of the Proflow™, all of Rudy Project's classic, award-winning features have been integrated in its design, including the Total Comfort System™ which offers easy ergonomic adjustment via flexible temple tips and the ErgoIV™ nosepiece, ensuring a custom and precise fit for every face. A 'flying' temple design which allows the finest adjustment for maximum comfort and works together with the all new Dorsal Stabilizers™, a system which ensures perfect alignment and directional stability for most head shapes, thus preventing the glasses from pitching down and placing excess pressure on the nose and ears.

  • This system of interchangeable lenses called Quick Change™ enables an easy and fast change out of lenses to manage any light conditions.

    The Proflow™ carries a vast range of optic and prescription solutions, including lenses carrying the patented ImpactX™ - a superior shatter-proof and photochromic lens that is guaranteed unbreakable for life. All of these technologies may be melded together with Rudy Project's award-winning Prescription Optics, a highly-advanced corrective lens solution which utilizes extremely sophisticated cutting and finishing equipment to guarantee sharp clarity, superior comfort and can cater for high corrective factors. This process may be applied directly to create interchangeable prescription lenses.
