Cyclists can gain tremendous speed, especially on downhill slopes. Travelling quickly through the air, you can experience problems with dust, insects and flying debris, which can lead to irritation and dryness. These factors can affect your vision and prevent you from performing at your best. The increased air flow whilst you are cycling, can cause your eyes to create more tears and as a result affect your vision.

Performance cycling eyewear can provide you with great coverage and protection, as well as comfortable clear vision, as it eliminates glare and enhances contrast whilst cycling.

Lens Guide

  1. Photochromatic lenses are beneficial for long distance running, as the lighting conditions can change with the weather
  2. Anti-reflective coatings can be applied to the front or back surface of the lens. This provides you with better clarity of vision
  3. Polarised filters can help reduce glare and reflection from off the road, especially in wet conditions
