Therefore, there are a few factors which you should take into consideration when purchasing riding eyewear. After all, choosing the right eyewear is as essential to achieving a positive experience as purchasing the right frame or tires for your bike.

There are some safety issues with using metal frames considering their tendency to break which may then harm an eye. Plastic glasses on the other hand, can be made to actually fit to your head and therefore have a decreased likelihood of breaking due to general wear and tear. When choosing the frames also take into consideration their weight, if you are cycling for a prolonged period of time you will want frames that sit comfortably on your face. Some frames use rubber nose grips  which generally stick to your nose better and shouldn’t therefore irritate you when riding.  There are some glasses which allow you change the lenses whilst keeping the frames intact.

Clear lenses are typically used at night to shield your eyes from general debris in the air as they don’t actually filter any light out, whereas orange lenses are typically used in sunny conditions as they reduce glare and increase the contrast between the terrain you’re cycling through.

More recently we have seen the rise of multi-lens road bike glasses which have photo-chromatic lenses which actively change color with varying light intensities, for example in bright light the lenses become darker and vice versa. This feature alleviates the need for you to actively stop cycling and change the pair of glasses for ones that better suit the environment. Multi-lens road bike glasses are the best among all.
