Why wear cycling sunglasses?
Cycling sunglasses are not just meant as a fashion accessory, but to shield your eyes from bright sunlight and harmful UV rays, and also offer protection from the wind, rain, dust, grit and bugs that can impair your vision. Cycling sunglasses differ from regular sunglasses in that they have a wraparound design, so they sit closer to your face. The frames are usually thinner too, and they are made from lightweight and durable materials. The lenses are lighter too, and are typically shatterproof.
What should I look for when choosing cycling sunglasses?
Here are some points to keep in mind:
Fit: Fit is the one of the key criteria when choosing a new pair of cycling sunglasses. The glasses need to be comfortable without pinch points or excessive tightness, and they need to sit close to your face without obscuring your vision. Some manufacturers offer sunglasses in a narrow design or a women-specific fit, but the vast majority of sunglasses are unisex with a one-size-fits-all design.
Lenses: Lenses come in a huge range of tints and colours from dark black to protect your eyes in bright sunlight, to yellow for boosting contrast in poor light. Clear lenses are good for riding at night. Some cycling glasses come with interchangeable lenses for different riding conditions. Some models offer photochromic lenses, which will get lighter or darker according to conditions.
Frame: As well as being functional, you will want your cycling glasses to look stylish too, so many cycling glasses can be purchased in various frame colours. Match them to your cycling gear, your team colours, or just choose the colour you like best.
Price: Cycling sunglasses can vary widely in price. What does paying more money get you? The biggest difference, apart from paying for a well-known brand name, is usually in the lens. Top-end glasses boast very high-quality optics that provide exceptional clarity, and you often have a wider range of tints to choose from. You may also get a lighter frame, more fit adjustment, and extra’s such as cases or bags for storage.
Does Anaconda sell other sunglasses too?
