Glasses for cyclists have to be genuine all-rounders, safely protecting your eyes against harmful UV rays, airstream, insects, dust – even dirt and grit in the air. And they have to do all this without being a nuisance: cyclist glasses have to be light, and the nose pad and sides have to fit comfortably under a helmet. In addition, high-contrast vision is very important when cycling. The eye has to adjust to constantly changing light conditions and the play of light and shadow. Furthermore, the glasses have to offer proper glare protection.
