Looking for that ride or die essential item, ready to take a hit whilst riding throughout the year? Cycling glasses achieve their traditional purpose of protecting the eyes from glare, UV light, debris, and wind, the biggest elements that can impact your cycling performance. Overall cycling glasses tend to have thicker lenses to optimise protection, as well as various lens colours and tints, preparing you for all weather conditions and cycling adventures.
Oakley all day every day! The Oakley cycling sunglasses collection promises a clear ride! The lightweight frames and unique designs have been specially made to optimise comfort with class A vision on any cycling adventure. These ‘ready to go’ cycling sunglasses offer protection with their slightly oversized lenses that have been made to hug the face for extra grip and eye protection.
The Oakley Half Jacket collection is certainly recognised as the highest in demand collection for cycling glasses due to their rimless/semi-rimless frames. This style of frame is great for those looking for an ultimate light piece, as well as having reduced contact to the face with a more ‘invisible’ feel.
You can indeed wear regular sunglasses when cycling, however, you will soon recognise why they aren’t the ideal choice. Non-cycling glasses tend to be designed with a flatter (non-curved) style, as they’re aesthetically pleasing for everyday fashion. These frame shapes are more likely to fall off in high-impact situations such as cycling. In comparison, most cycling glasses have been styled with curved lenses, frames, and arms to lightly grip to the face and to successfully protect the eyes.
If you’re curious, you’ll be able to try on all cycling sunglasses from the comfort of your own home with the ingenious Virtual Try-On Tool at Vision Direct, as well as receiving a free 100-day returns policy.
