The Right Choice for Cycling Sunglasses
A nice sunny day is a great excuse to dust off the bike, dig out the cycling clothing and head outdoors for a long ride. The bad side of the sun shining brightly can be that your view is obscured, making it harder to enjoy your ride, and that's before mentioning the traffic and other obstacles that greet you on your journey. However, you can deter both the sun and the bugs from hindering your vision thanks to the many products available on the market to cater towards both your requirements and your budget. The pros of budget sunglasses is that if they are lost you can simply purchase another pair, that said, the budget sunglasses may not offer all, if any, of the features you may be seeking. As every person is unique, so would be the product you need to purchase; for example if you were a heavy mountain bike user, then a full face mask with ventilation may be a good idea.
All the stops, starts and speed ups can cause your glasses to steam up which will put you in the same predicament as before if the right product is not purchased. If you happen to be a long distance cyclist, then weight and comfort is essential here, there is nothing worse than travelling for miles on end only to be irritated by your glasses due to the toll they would burden you with if they were too heavy or sat uncomfortably whilst wearing them.
Another thing to consider when purchasing cycling sunglasses is the lenses themselves. You can have polarized lenses which can help deter glare from the sun and surfaces such as a flat road. Adapatalite sunglasses allow the lenses to adapt to the varying UV light levels around you giving you a clearer outlook when cycling. If you happen to cycle throughout the seasons then an interchangeable set of sunglasses may be the answer. Interchangeable sunglasses means you can simply covert your eyewear to contend with the relevant elements, ensuring you are prepared for all weather conditions. Interchangeable sunglasses can also be purchased at a reasonably fair price, such as Global Vision's shatterproof cycling glasses, complete with interchangeable lenses; ideal for newer cyclists who are just trying out, or for those on a tight budget.
So in conclusion the right choice for you will match your activities; everyone has their own requirements and needs and a little homework when purchasing sunglasses will mean you won't go far wrong.
