What to Look for in 7eye Windproof Motorcycle Sunglasses
When you combine a high MPH trajectory on the bike with nature's wind speeds, it's easy to quickly find your vision impacted. All these 7eye motorcycle sunglasses provide the highest level of wind protection, so you can enjoy the ride. Here are the main wind-blocking features across all the frames in today's lineup:
AirShield® Eyecup Technology
Motorcycle sunglasses with foam eyecups are the number one way of blocking wind, dust, and debris. 7eye's unique AirShield® Eyecup Technology combines closed cell foam with a patented ventilation system for the most comfortable visual experience and highest level of protection. Closed cell foam is sweat and moisture-resistant, while also being one of the most durable foam materials. The ventilation system encourages air flow, so your vision remains fog-free. Finally, the AirShield® Eyecup is removable and replaceable for extra frame versatility and longevity.

Foam eyecups and an 8-base wrap are the winning combo for your 7eye motorcycle glasses. In fact, for foam gaskets to perform at their best, an 8-base wrap around design is essential. This contoured fit allows the foam to create a complete seal and delivers a wide field of vision.
In addition to wind-blocking capabilities, all the frames in our lineup of the best 7eye motorcycle sunglasses for wind are impact-resistant. Because when you're on the bike, safety is always a priority. For windy days, flat days, and everything in between, impact-resistant frames and lenses ensure the highest level of protection from high-velocity impacts.
If you wear prescription, a comfortable ride doesn't stop at just wind-blocking eyewear. You need a visual boost with prescription lenses tailor-made to your vision needs. At SportRx, all 7eye motorcycle sunglasses are Rx-able and ready to take you on your next adventure with perfect clarity.

Let's check out the frames!
Introducing the 7eye Viento, the newest frame from 7eye and the next favorite item in your riding gear. Its aerodynamic design is ultra-sleek and thin, making it a perfect fit under your helmet. Rubber inlays at the temple tips provide extra grip without adding width. Because of its compact design, the 7eye Viento is ideal for those with small faces.
As for the lenses, 7eye SharpView lens technology provides 100% UV protection and is shatter-resistant. The Viento is also prescription-friendly with SportRx Sport Optimized Lenses, as are all the frames in our lineup.

This 2020 REXY Nominee for the Best Motorcycle Sunglasses continues to be a riding favorite today.

Have you ever found your perfect riding frame, only to slip it on and find out the temple arms are too short or far too long? Temple length is a frame feature that can make, or break, the deal. 7eye took care of this common issue with a unique design in the Cape sunglasses. This wrap around frame has a discrete mechanism hidden inside each temple that allows you to adjust the length. By customizing the closeness of fit, you'll achieve a frame that sits at the ideal distance from your face, so wind doesn't sneak through. Trust us when we say this small detail makes a big difference on the bike.
Shop 7eye Cape
7eye Cape Key Features:
- Adjustable temple length mechanism allows you to customize the closeness of fit

- Slim, curved temple tips are helmet-compatible

Wrapping up our lineup, we have the ever-popular 7eye Bora. This wind-blocking frame isn't too far from the previous Cape's design, but there are a few noteworthy differences. The Bora has straight temples, unlike the Cape's bent design. Not to worry, they both are ultra-thin to accommodate helmets, so this feature is purely a choice of personal preference. Another difference is the sizing. The 7eye Bora is slightly larger with an SFW of 136. This makes it a perfect fit for both genders of medium to large eyewear sizes. Not sure which size to get? Reach out to our Sports Opticians, and we'll be happy to help!
