7 Things to Know About Cycling Sunglasses

When you’re biking through the forest or along the coast you are unstoppable. Maybe it’s a Sunday morning while the fog is just starting to break when you start feeling the adrenaline of a great workout. These are the moments when you feel alive. Like you, Mike, a fellow cycling enthusiast, decided that to enhance this outdoor experience, he wanted to find the ultimate pair of glasses.

Fed up with this struggle, Mike began to research what glasses would be the best for him. He found the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL.

1. Wind Coverage Means No More Squinting

Biking with contacts is a challenge when the wind blows in your face, drying out your eyes. It’s frustrating when your eyes become irritated and teary. Mike needed sunglasses with taller lenses and shaped to act as a windshield for the ride. The Oakley Flak 2.0 XL protects Mike from all angles, and with Mike's prescription, he doesn't have to worry about his contacts drying out either.

2. Unlock Hard Mode with Color and Contrast Enhancing Lenses

But Mike was looking to get a little more out of his cycling sunglasses. He wants every detail to pop while he's on the road, so that he never sees a pothole or uneven path he can't navigate while flying down the road. For cycling, the Road Black or Road Red PRIZM lenses are right choice for preparing you to smoothly curve and turn your wheels. Details around you become crystal clear so you ride, prepared for anything in your path.

3. Focus in on the Road

Mike was aware that despite his skill on the road, twigs and debris can occasionally come out of nowhere, and he wanted his eyes to be protected. As opposed to the CR39 or glass that is typically in fashion glasses, these glasses are impact-resistant and ready for impact even when Mike might not be.

4. So Comfortable You Forgot They Were on your Face

Finally, Mike can put all of his energy into being in the moment, pushing his limits and exploring the world on his wheels. No cyclist wants to be focused on problems when there is an easy solution, “I could see distance just fine, but reading my bike computer or phone while on the ride was proving to be a challenge,” Mike revealed.

Now, Mike isn’t even aware that his glasses are resting on his face. He can move his head up and down without worrying that his sunglasses will slip, due to the Unobtanium™ rubber which fits snug as a bug in the rug. As he gets hotter and sweatier through the day, the frames stick more, and not less, to his face. As he gets hotter or colder or sweatier, his glasses are right there with him. Mike can put all of his focus and determination solely into his ride and living in the moment.

5. Ride Long, Ride Strong

As Mikes’s journey progresses through the day, the sun shifts in the sky, maybe the clouds come out for a little, or maybe Mike’s by the water with a huge glare. Through the day, not only will UV protection be shielding Mike’s eyes from harmful sun rays, with transitions lenses the glasses are right there with him. When the sun’s bright, he gets a darker lens so his eyes don’t need to be squinting, and when he dips into a forest, more the tint is lighter so he can see everything in his path. The XL frame provides the extra space so sunlight isn’t slipping through.
