Fantastic

These lenses are great. In the sun they are just right, on overcast days and at early night they they are bright enough. It is an incredible feeling to have one set on sunglasses that works great at all times of the day. I always hated changing lenses. Before I bought these I had one set with dark glasses for sunny days and another for rainy cloudy days. These lenses are also extremely comfortabale. The rubber grips make a huge difference compared to stiff plastic on cheaper lenses, the Tifosi stays in place and they don't mess with the helmet at the back. Strongly recommended.

Brillaint sunglasses

By far the best sunglasses I have had. The photochromic lens is fantastic, you see much more on cloudy days and the level of dark is just perfect when the sun is shining. Makes the lenses more secure. They are very light and comfortable. They are the only lenses I have that does NOT interfere with my helmets.

Cycling Glasses Guide

The benefits of cycling glasses 

Cycling glasses protect your eyes from damaging UV rays, harsh glare and flying debris. Wearing cycling glasses doesn't only offer protection, they can also enhance your visual acuity (your ability to spot objects on the road or trail), colour and depth perception.  

How to choose cycling glasses 

Style 

You can spot cycling glasses from standard sunglasses by their frame design. Cycling glasses sit close to the face and have a wrap-around lens profile as well as curved arms. Standard glasses have a flatter profile.  

Wrap-around lenses offer enhanced peripheral vision when cycling, while a thinner, lighter and more streamlined design improves performance when road racing.  

Lens 

Single or double lenses? 

Single lenses offer more coverage but you're often limited to just one lens tint. 

Dual lens glasses are available with interchangeable lenses so you can switch to tinted versions that are suitable for your riding conditions. 

What are interchangeable lenses? 

Many cycling glasses come with a range of lenses in different shades. You can simply swap the lenses for the conditions you're going to be riding.  

Lens tint guide 

Clear – night riding & overcast skies. Great for protection against debris

Yellow – overcast and low light conditions. Offers improved clarity when light is dim  

Brown / amber – variable conditions. They enhance contrast and improve depth perception  

Blue / purple – low light conditions. Look great, reduce glare and enhance colour perception  

Grey – low to bright conditions. A good option for daily use without distorting colours and reduce glare  

Pink / red – variable conditions. Offer improved visual depth and greatest amount of contrast 

What are photochromic lenses? 

Photochromic lenses tint with changes in light intensity. They're a good option for riders who cycle in unpredictable weather or mountain bikers who switch between open and shaded areas. With photochromic lenses you don't need to switch lenses all the time. 

What are polarized lenses? 

Polarized lenses are designed to reduce glare and reflection whilst also offering improved UV protection. By reducing glare you can see objects on the road ahead much easier.  

Which glasses are best for me?  

It's a good idea to choose cycling glasses for the type of riding you're most likely to be doing. 

Recreation / Commuting – Standard glasses 

You don't need aero designed glasses at slow speeds, or wrap-around coverage. A pair of casual looking sunglasses with UV protection are enough and look stylish off the bike too. 

Mountain biking – Cycling Glasses 

Again you'll have a slower average speed than road cycling so you can get away with a casual style but look for those with plenty of grip on the nose bridge and arms. Variable light conditions means a photochromic lens would be a good option.  

Road cycling – Cycling Glasses 

Fast paced road cycling means a close fit with venting are a good choice. Interchangeable lenses that focus on improving contrast will help you navigate debris on the roads.
