Nothing is worse than going out for a nice ride, getting up to cruising speed on your bike, then having something fly in your eye forcing you to come to a stop. That’s where cycling sunglasses come in. Bike glasses help shield a rider’s eyes from the wind, the sun, and debris. Some of the most common debris riders experience out on the trail or on the road are bugs, dirt and dust, and water. Cycling glasses come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and styles for all types of riding. Many cycling sunglasses have different features that make them better for certain riding situations over other cycling sunglasses.
Some sunglasses come with multiple lenses that are easily interchangeable so you can change your lenses on the fly to meet the needs of the ride you’re doing. If you’re doing a longer ride that starts in the early morning before the sun comes out, then you can start your ride with clear lens so you can see better. When the sun comes out, you can switch your clear lens to a darker lens to protect your eyes from the sunlight. On cloudy days, an amber lens works best.
One major problem that many cyclists experience is lens fogging. Some sunglasses, like the Oakley cycling sunglasses, feature ventilation to help prevent the lens from fogging up. Another issue cyclists have is helmet compatibility with their cycling sunglasses. Some Oakley cycling sunglasses come with multiple temple lengths for better helmet compatibility. Many other brands have adjustable nose and ear pieces to create a custom fit for each rider.
Lenses are always a huge topic when it comes to cycling sunglasses. Lower-end sunglasses will have basic lenses that protect a rider’s eyes from UV rays and other things like bugs and debris, but higher-end bike glasses will have polarized lenses and even photochromic lenses. Photochromic cycling sunglasses have lenses that are sensitive to light. That means the tint of the lens will change based on the light exposure. Essentially less light will mean less tint, or a lighter lens, and more light will mean more tint, or a darker lens.
