What to look for in Cycling Sunglasses?

You might think that any pair of sunglasses can be used as cycling glasses. Well, that could be possible in certain environments, but when you’re looking for the best cycling glasses, there are a few factors that you want to consider. 

First, you want to consider how the weather can affect your vision. Whether it’s an overcast day, raining, or a bright and sunny day, these will affect your vision in different ways, such as being in low light conditions or needing to be able to clearly notice glare but with optimal vision. You want to avoid polarized lenses that actually reduce or eliminate glare, and you want to have cycling glasses with some type of impact resistance in case of an accident. 

In addition, when it comes to the fit, prioritizing a wraparound design with an adjustable fit is what you want from the best cycling glasses. This ensures the cycling glasses stay on at all times and are not causing pressure on the face and head. 

As you can see, there are a few different things to look for with your next pair of cycling sunglasses, and RX Safety can help with your selection.

Bolle Bolt 2.0 Sunglasses

The Bolt 2.0 are made from TR-90 Nylon, which helps to keep them light and flexible, and extremely durable at once. To help with stability, the Bolt 2.0 comes with Thermogrip rubber combined with a nose pad that’s rubberized to keep these cycling glasses in place. When looking for lens options, Bolle offers these cycling glasses in either Phantom Clear Green or Brown Red photochromatic lenses, which are optimal for cycling. There’s also a Volt+ option which is known for being polarized with higher contrast. Either option provides 100% UV protection as well.

Nike Brazen Fuel

The Brazen Fuel is a great option as well for prescription cycling glasses. They come in minimalist frame colors, such as Matte Black, Matte Gray, Matte Tortoise, and Matte Space Blue. The frame design is at a 6-base curved lens structure, giving it an almost wraparound design and helps support blocking out light from the sides, and has temple tips and nose pads that are rubberized to ensure comfort when cycling. There’s also a sense of sustainability here as the frame is partially made from castor bean oil. 

Bobster Speed Sunglasses

The Speed Sunglasses are great for all outdoor activities and are easily a contender for one of the best cycling sunglasses out there. They feature a secure and snug wraparound design. The lenses themselves are made from polycarbonate, which is shatter resistant. In addition, the lenses provide 100% UV ray protection and are built with anti-fog and anti-scratch features. In addition, the Speed Sunglasses have the TRNZZ Rubber Treatment that helps make it hydrophilic. 

Regardless of your choice, ensure that your vision is always optimal. This will help protect you from oncoming traffic or obstacles that could potentially be dangerous and easily avoided when you have clarity of vision.
