Cool Biking Sunglasses That Also Protect Your Eyes

If you're just an avid biker you'll need a good pair of biking sunglasses. You know that you have to protect your eyes from the sun when you ride and have good visibility, for safety. Trying to bike without them could be dangerous, because you may not see obstacles in the road ahead of you, due to the varying light and shadow, and the glare. Because of that, you need a good pair of biking sunglasses. What characteristics should you look for when you buy a good pair of biking sunglasses, though?
It's not all about looks. Some biking sunglasses may look "cool," but you have to be careful, because that's not the first thing you want to look for. Instead, focus on these characteristics:

Comfort is Essential

Make sure you don't ignore even the slightest discomfort when you try sunglasses on. What's a minor discomfort for a few minutes' testing when you're trying them out is going to become excruciating indeed when you have to wear them for several hours. Ideally, when you put the glasses on, you shouldn't even be able to tell you're wearing them because they fit so well. They shouldn't pinch your nose or squeeze your temples too tightly either.

A Good Fit  

The best sunglasses not only fit your face comfortably; they'll also fit your head properly. Sunglasses of this type are definitely not "one size fits all," or even "one brand fits all," so try on several before you choose. You need the glasses to stay "in position" on your face well and not be too tight or too loose.
All-Encompassing Eye Protection that Surrounds the Eye 
Although you may think you don't need wind protection in addition to sun protection, think again. If you're going to be on your bike several hours at a time or even longer, it's likely that windy weather is going to come up now and again. And indeed, even if you don't have windy weather, you're going to have wind blowing past your eyes at significant speeds while you're biking. This can lead to dryness at the very least, and you can also get debris in your eye. All-encompassing eye protection that completely surrounds your eyes will protect you from both sun and wind, so that your eyes stay comfortable and healthy, in addition to having the glasses provide you better vision.

Good Lenses 

Regardless of the sunglasses you get, you will want the lenses to have two characteristics. You'll definitely want your sunglasses to have UV protection, and you'll want them to be polarized. Polarized lenses cut down on glare so that you can see better. UV protection protects the health of your eyes from the sun's damage due to exposure.
Remember, the most important things to look for are that the sunglasses fit properly as described above, and that they provide superior eye protection and better visibility, with the ability to cut down on glare. They should also provide UV protection, for the health of your eyes.

Protection Powerhouse:

Shield your eyes from UV rays, Prolonged sun exposure can damage your eyes, and cycling puts you right in the firing line. Biking sunglasses with 100% UV protection act as a barrier, shielding your precious peepers from harmful rays.

Deflect debris and insects, A rogue pebble or a kamikaze bee can turn your scenic ride into a tear-fest. Cycling sunglasses, particularly wraparound styles, act as a shield, keeping these airborne hazards at bay.

Minimize wind and dust irritation, High speeds and open roads mean wind-whipped tears and dust motes in your eyes. Biking sunglasses block the air blast, keeping your eyes lubricated and irritation-free.

Visionary Enhancements:

Reduce glare and reflections, Sun bouncing off car windows or wet roads can be blinding. Biking sunglasses with polarized lenses eliminate glare, giving you sharper, clearer vision and improved depth perception.

Boost contrast and definition, Tinted lenses not only block harsh light but also enhance color definition, making it easier to spot potholes, obstacles, and trail features.

Adapt to changing light conditions, Many biking sunglasses come with interchangeable lenses, letting you switch between sunny, cloudy, or even low-light conditions while ensuring optimal vision.

Performance & Comfort Plus:

Improve aerodynamics, Wraparound designs minimize wind resistance, making your ride smoother and more efficient.

Reduce eye strain, Squinting at the sun is tiring. Biking sunglasses provide shade and improve contrast, minimizing eye strain and fatigue, so you can ride farther and feel fresher.

Enhanced safety, Improved vision means better reaction times and reduced risk of accidents. Plus, some biking sunglasses even fit prescription lenses, ensuring clear vision for everyone.

So, ditch the squinting and ditch the danger. Invest in a good pair of biking sunglasses and unlock a whole new level of comfort, safety, and performance on your next ride. Your eyes will thank you!

Remember, choosing the right pair depends on your riding style and needs. Look for features like shatterproof lenses, comfortable fit, and ventilation to keep your vision clear and your head cool. With so many options available, finding the perfect pair of biking sunglasses is an adventure in itself, but one that's guaranteed to elevate your cycling experience.

Happy trails!
