Whether you’re riding to work, to race, or just for fun, your eyes are under a lot of pressure when you’re in the saddle. Cycling glasses will protect you from the sun’s rays, dust, bugs and pollen on fine days, and help you see through wind and rain when the weather turns nasty.
More than just sunglasses
Dedicated cycling glasses are designed to stay put, even over bumpy terrain, and most will deliver a greater viewing angle than standard shades – many have no frames on the bottom and sides for greater visibility and to prevent fogging. Cycling sunglasses often include wraparound protection at the side of the eyes too, not just in front. Some cycling glasses come with extra lenses that you can change to suit what you’re doing – different tints will protect you from UV light on bright, sunny days, or enhance the light in dull or foggy conditions. And clear lenses are perfect for night riding.
For downhillers, mountain bikers and dirt riders, goggles are your best bet for protecting your peepers. They’re water, dust and mud proof to keep your visibility levels up no matter how tough it gets out there and come with sweat-absorbent linings for better wearability. We have some of the best cycling glasses from the biggest names in cycling eyewear, including Oakley and Bloc, for you to buy online or in one of our stores.
