Good bicycle glasses should always fit perfectly!
No matter whether if you are sporty on the move on the road bike, if you are handling difficult trails on your mountain bike or if you are just on a shopping trip with your city bike.
Beside the cycling helmets the glasses are the most important protective element for the head of the biker.
Like at the helmets, also at the glasses the fitting is a crucial role. Only perfectly fitting glasses protect the cyclist of solar radiation, wind, weather and insects.
The temples should guarantee the correct position of the glasses without causing pressure points. Thereby it is crucial which material is used. It should bring sufficient stability and strong flexibility.
The wearing comfort is significantly improved by adjustable nose pads. All in all the glasses should be adapted by size and shape to the head of the driver to guarantee an ideal field of vision.
Sliding glasses bring instability while driving and reduce the protective functions.
The most important protective properties of bicycle glasses:
Besides perfect fit and perfect size of the cycling glasses, the protective qualities are also important for your choice. Perfectly aerodynamically formed glasses, e.g. road bike racing protect the eyes of wind airflow. They prevent of watering eyes and eye irritations which also cause instability while driving. Sufficient ventilation improves the transportation of sweat and prevents fogging of the glasses. This "misting up" of glasses, is strengthened by an additional feature which is to be found at lots of glasses. "Anti-fog" treatments of the glasses prevent fogging.
During the summer months, with strong solar radiation the UV protection of the glasses as well as the shade are very important. Some provider of glasses like e.g. Endura, Carrera or NRC offers extra lenses. With those you can modify your glasses in a couple of seconds and so you can use the glasses even on low light days without the need to buy a new one.
Those who are willing to dip into one's purse opt for polarizing sunglasses lenses. Here prevent the polarising filter that one is dazzled by reflexions. Furthermore, the awareness is increased by contrast and colours. These characteristics reduce eye fatigue and through the clearer view dangers will be seen early enough to prevent accidents.
