What to Look For in Women’s Cycling Sunglasses

The two most important things to consider when buying cycling sunglasses are frame and lens technology. For a more complete guide of these plus more, check out our cycling sunglasses buyer’s guide.


Frame Technology

Your best bet for a good cycling frame is one that is lightweight, gives good coverage, provides plenty of wind protection, and fits close to your face without too tight or too loose. The weight factor is especially important for prescription-wearers, as a thick lens will add more weight to your face.

Likewise, good coverage can be hard to balance with a prescription due to the distortion that comes with wearing a wrap lens in prescription. But that doesn’t mean you’re out of options! There are still plenty of wrap frames capable of handling difficult prescriptions.

If you constantly struggle with sunglasses not fitting well, touching your cheeks, or sliding down your face, we’ve got a few Asian Fit options for you as well.


Lens Technology

Our #1 tip is to not wear glass lenses on the bike. More fashionable cycling glasses have been gaining popularity in recent years, so be careful of what you’re wearing and don’t go too casual.

Aside from that, we recommend digital lenses for all prescription-wearers to ensure the widest field of view. You also want a contrast-enhancing tint such as amber, rose copper, or brown to help you spot all potential obstacles a little faster.

For Oakley fans, our favorites for cycling are PRIZM Road and Road Black lenses. Otherwise, our top SportRx Signature lenses for cycling are Day & Night Contrast, Over It, and Sunset. These are all high-contrast photochromic lenses to let you see great in any lighting condition. For more details on those as well as all our other Signature lenses, check out our guide here.

Polarized lenses are a matter of personal preference for cycling. Most cycling lenses are not polarized, but if you prefer them that way, stay tuned—we’ve got a great option for you.
