Bike glasses for every occasion
Besides being an attractive addition to your outfit, bike sunglasses shield and protect your eyes from all kinds of debris in the air, from dust and insects to the sun, wind and rain. Whether you are cycling in the city, racing down hills really fast or touring through the muddy countryside or forests, bike sunglasses are specially designed to sit well on the face and not slip. If you don’t have this kind of protection and the wind or debris gets into your eyes, your eyes can water or be irritated and it can be hard to see and focus on what you are doing.
Bike glasses are crafted from robust materials that are built to last and are scratch resistant. While sometimes it may not feel like the sun is dangerous, the UV rays can damage parts of your eye without you even realising. If you’re worried that your vision may be impaired by wearing tinted glasses, rest assured that with the Bikester.co.uk range of glasses, you will find models that offer protection from the glare and exposure to harmful UV rays and yet automatically adapt to the light conditions on your ride to ensure that your vision is still optimised. There are also models with adjustable arms to ensure you have the optimal fit.
Keep your vision clear and safe with bike glasses
Whether you are eating up miles road riding on your mountain bike or touring the city on your daily commute, a good pair of bike sunglasses is an essential item of your cycling apparel. When you’re choosing the right pair of bike glasses for you, it’s important to consider the following points to help make your decision easier:
The fit – it is worthwhile trying your glasses on with and without your bike helmet to ensure that they fit really well and there is no additional pressure – especially when you wear your helmet at the same time. It is also vital to make sure that in terms of size, they fit well on your face and are not too big
Protection – make sure that your pair of glasses offers 100% UV protection so that your eyes are shielded from harmful UV rays. Most good quality glasses have in built UV protection as standard
Lens choice – depending on the conditions and type of rides you intend to do, the type of tint applied to the lenses of your glasses is also important. For example, a yellow tint can help to increase contrast, while clear lenses are ideal for dull conditions to enhance visibility, and darker tints are suited to sunny bright days. Photochromic lenses on the other hand automatically adapt to the different light conditions you may experience during your ride
