On a sunny day, the reflection of sunlight on the road will allow the glasses to receive more ultraviolet reflections; in windy weather, foreign matter and dust will blow into the glasses if you are not careful, which will hurt your eyes and easily cause danger; on a snowy day, the white snow will reflect. Will make glasses suffer from “snow blindness”…
In this case, you all need a pair of riding cycling glasses, which can greatly help protect the glasses to reduce damage, thereby improving safety during riding.
So what are the precautions when choosing cycling glasses?

1. Wearing comfort

The choice of riding glasses must first consider comfort, which is related to the texture, size, and weight of the glasses. Try to try them first before buying them. Professional cycling glasses generally use non-slip materials on the nose pads to ensure stability during strenuous exercise. In addition, most of the cycling glasses designs in recent years will add additional vents to reduce lens fogging and increase comfort. .

2. Lens color

When choosing cycling glasses, it is important to consider that the lens has the function of filtering harmful light and anti-ultraviolet rays. Different lenses have different absorption and filtering effects on different light.

Therefore, you also need to consider your usual riding environment when choosing cycling glasses.  Make different choices for different environments.

• Black lenses are suitable for strong light such as noon light, and are effective in preventing ultraviolet rays, filtering glare and harmful light.
• The purple lens can reduce the degree of visible light entering the eye without affecting the clarity of vision.
• Try using blue lenses in foggy or poor visibility weather.
• The red-orange lens is the best overall, which can make the surrounding terrain more clear and clear.
• The yellow lens is suitable for use in dimly lit conditions and at night, reducing the light reflection of the lens, achieving a brightening effect and improving clarity.
• Gray lenses provide the best color perception.
• Colorless lenses are ideal for foggy or gray weather, and are often used for wind and rain.
• Plated reflective lenses are necessary for highland riding, and are useful in snowy areas or high-light areas with strong ultraviolet rays.

3. Lens material

Material of the cycling glasses must be flexible, resistant to pressure and impact, so that if you fall down during cycling, you will not hurt your eyes because of the broken glasses.

Generally speaking, resin lenses are better, have good elasticity and strength, are light in texture, and feel very comfortable to wear; while glass lenses are absolutely forbidden in the manufacture of cycling glasses.
Cycling glasses need to have a good anti-ultraviolet effect in order to play a good protective effect, and the lens needs to be able to filter some stray light that is harmful to the eyes. You can shake the lens in front of your eyes to see whether the lens is good or not.

If the object and the lens move together, it means that the mirror surface is not flat and it is not a good lens.

4. Frame design

Frame selection requires softness, flexibility, impact resistance, and safety protection of the face from damage during exercise. The veneer design of the frame can keep the eyes close to the edge of the frame to prevent the eye irritation from strong winds during rapid movement.

5. Ordinary sunglasses are not a substitute for riding glasses

• (1) Design of sunglasses is not suitable for sports, which will cause the frame to slide or even fall during riding.
• (2) Sunglass lenses generally have no anti-fogging function, which can easily cause lens blur in hot and cold weather, which may cause danger.
• (3) Compared with cycling glasses, ordinary sunglasses lack the functions of windproof and prevent foreign objects from entering the eyes.
