Cycling Eye-Wear Overview

Cycling eyewear serves two purposes. UV and glare protection from the sun but also to shield your eyes from insects or small debris that might have flicked up from a passing car. Eyewear should be chosen and worn to suit the right light conditions.

The lens itself also needs to be impact resistant, most lenses are made from a polycarbonate material which has enough flex to absorb high impacts. Unfortunately the trade off is that this means the lens softer and more susceptible to scratching. I’m sure you would agree that a damaged lens is better than permanent eye damage.

There are various types of lenses that offer various advantages in differing conditions. Some examples are listed below: So for your next purchase think of styles that can swap lenses while still considering the strength of uv and glare.

Full frames offer greater protection against impacts and are generally safer, but suffer from reduced air ventilation.
