How to Choose Sunglasses for Biking

There are several points to consider when choosing sunglasses for biking that will offer maximum protection and comfort. Have a look below;

Lens Colour
The choice of lens colour matters a lot. When buying bike sunglasses, look for the tag that indicates their light transmission and absorption qualities. The best colour to choose for regular use is neutral grey as it doesn’t distort colour.

Ultraviolet Radiation
Almost all good quality mountain bike sunglasses today offer essential UV protection. Some lens materials have a built in ability to absorb Ultraviolet rays however most sunglasses offer this in the form of lens coating. Shimano, Assos, POC, Spiuk and XLC offer a huge collection of bike riding sunglasses.

Shields and Wraparound Frames
Wraparound sunglass frames and lenses offer several benefits to cyclists. These biker sunglasses provide the best peripheral vision due to the lack of obstruction by the temple and frame. In group riding or cycling in public, peripheral vision is especially important. It also allows enough air circulation while preventing fogging on the lenses.

Lens Type
Polycarbonate lenses are known to be unbreakable. These lenses are lighter in weight and don’t fog up as early as glass lenses. Plastic lenses are not a good choice as they are more prone to scratches.

Frames
Last but not least, you need to consider the type of frame you want for road bike sunglasses. Plastic and nylon materials are lightweight, safer and durable as compared to metal.
