Cycling glasses protect your eyes from the sun and from debris
Cycling glasses, much like regular sunglasses, shield you from the glare of the sun so you can always see where you’re going. But they’re also designed to offer effective protection against cycling-specific hazards – debris kicked up by your tyres, headwinds, and unsuspecting insects flying in your face.

Benefits of cycling glasses
The last thing you want when you’re out cycling is to be blinded by sunlight. Not only is it uncomfortable, it’s also dangerous to cycle when you can’t see where you’re going and can’t effectively anticipate obstacles or focus on the road.
That’s where cycling glasses come in. Tinted glasses help you keep your eyes on the road without squinting and without worrying about UV rays.
The secondary benefit of cycling glasses is the protection they offer against other hazards encountered on a bike. Because of their tight fit and durable design, cycling glasses are an effective counter to the classic cycling problem of grit, insects and even strong headwinds interfering with your eyes on the road.
Additionally, these glasses are designed to be both easy to transport and hard to damage. Some models include a clip and belt loop so you can easily carry the glasses when you’re not wearing them. And their design, tough but flexible, reduces the chances of your glasses falling off or shattering in the event of a fall.
If you already wear prescription glasses, don’t worry – there are models of cycling glasses with removable lenses, so that you can add a lens matching your prescription.
Make sure to keep yourself fully protected (and comfortable) with our other cycling clothing, too. With the right helmet, rain clothing and shoes, you can enjoy a safe and pleasant bike ride, whatever the weather.
