What makes a pair of sunglasses good for mountain biking? In our Buyer's Guide, we explain everything you should look for in a frame and lenses that will allow you to perform your best on your ride.
Comfort is the first thing to look for in a frame. You'll want to have plenty of coverage that's secured with rubber grip on the nose pads and temple tips; these features will be your best friend on the trail. It'll provide that additional comfort with a proper fit non-slip grip that you'll need when you really start hitting the grind.
Look for a frame that's made of lightweight material like nylon, and has temples that are compatible with your helmet so they don't squeeze your head. A semi or full wrap will keep your sunglasses securely on your face and offer added protection from the sun, dust, and other debris you may kick up.
For your lens technology and materials, look for something that won't shatter if you take a dive into a hole. Lenses made of polycarbonate or safety-rated lenses would be the ones to look for here. Whether or not you choose a polarized lens is up to your discretion, as it can be helpful in bright light conditions, but it can also negatively impact your depth perception. We don't recommend it for mountain biking.
One feature we always recommend for mountain biking sunglasses is high contrast lenses. Lens technologies like Oakley's PRIZM™ and SMITH's ChromaPop™ boost color and contrast to give you an amazing visual experience to help you better spot slight changes in the terrain.
