What to Look for in Cycling Sunglasses

When selecting the best cycling sunglasses for small faces, our Sports Opticians paid special attention to the following key criteria: coverage, secure fit, and sizing. We’ll break down each of these elements below, but if you’d like even more information, visit our Cycling Sunglasses Buyer’s Guide.

Generous Coverage

For long-distance rides, or days under the sun, protect yourself from all angles with sunglasses that provide generous coverage. All of the frames in our lineup feature an 8-wrap design for maximum protection against harsh UV rays.

Secure Fit

If the terrain is bumpy or you’re breaking a sweat, sunglasses can easily fall victim to slippage or a fall. Prevent distracting frame adjustments with cycling sunglasses that provide a secure fit. This could be rubber grip, high-tension hinges, or proprietary frame-fit technology to keep your sunglasses budge-free.

SportRx Frame Width

To help you find your perfect sunglasses size, we’ve come up with a new way to reliably measure frames and determine your size. It’s called the SportRx Frame Width (SFW).

To break it down, we use our SFW to measure accurate frame dimensions, determine the fit of a frame, and show how to apply your SFW when buying sunglasses online. It’s taken time to perfect, and we couldn’t be more confident in the results! That’s why you’ll find an SFW measurement for every one of the frames in our lineup of the best cycling sunglasses for small faces!


Best Cycling Sunglasses for Small Faces

Let’s check out the frames!

Nike Dash

This performance frame delivers excellent coverage thanks to its 8-base wrap and contoured lenses. Protecting you from harsh UV rays from any angle, the Nike Dash wraps seamlessly on those with small faces. Made from nylon, it is extremely lightweight and will keep you comfortable cruising along the coast or flying downhill. High-tension hinges create just the right amount of grip and textured temples direct moisture away from the frame to keep you cool.
