Today cyclists wear a helmet on the head and gloves to protect the palms in the event of an accident. But they often forget cycling glasses.

You may question, if the sun does not shine, would you still be required to use cycling glasses? Or is it so important to wear glasses when riding a bicycle?

Let me tell you that cycling and glasses always go hand in hand, something that I learned & experienced recently. It doesn't matter if you practice this sport professionally or as an amateur. And this is not an aesthetic element but, like the helmet, it is an element of protection!

There are many challenges that can arise when you are on the bike. It is one of the sports that require greater eye protection. The glasses can help you to prevent any mosquito coming in direct contact with your eyes, preventing the loss of vision and even a possible accident. It also protects you from dust or any other element that could damage your eyes. And even when you go out riding at night, when the temperature can be much more pleasant, the use of glasses can still be a great aid to prevent contact with an insect (although for this particular use, the best are a pair of transparent glasses for dark environments).

Many specific cycling glasses have interchangeable lenses or that change their tone depending on the light intensity, not as fashion, but to get the most out of cycling glasses in any condition that occurs, it can be a lens mirror for a scorching sun, a yellow lens for cloudy weather, or a clear lens for pedaling in the rain or at night.

Protecting our eyes from the sun's rays is a necessity, but we also have to protect them from anything that could fly towards them while pedaling. When the road is wet, the likelihood of something entering the eyes due to water on the road increases, which is why it is important to protect the eyes with glasses for cycling.

They are a vital component for a safe trip, especially during cold and dark times of the year. It is in those times in which the visibility can be very variant, as in the rainy days, and the gray of winter.

This is why manufacturers of cycling goggles have developed a range of different lens tones to provide better contrast on road surfaces, with anti-fogging properties and treatments to keep lenses clear at all times.

The key to determining the suitability of a lens is the ability to transmit visible light, which enters through the lens and reaches the eyes, the clearer the lens, the more light it will let in.

So, if you want to have a perfect vision you should look for this type of crystals:

They eliminate the reflections of the asphalt and provide a clear vision of reflections. Ideal for the road!

Photochromatic/Photosensitive lenses
These are the ones that adapt to different lighting conditions. These are very popular and practical since they adapt to the amount of light, darkening in full sun and becoming clearer when the light fades.
This is fine when the sun is beginning to set towards the end of the day.

Anti-fog (Premium)
As the name suggests, these help to avoid the appearance of fog and stains on the glass.

In gray
To respect the perception of color

For greater comfort, you can choose some glasses with anti sweatband.

The latest innovation is bifocal cycling glasses that are graduated from 1.5 to 2.5 diopters with colored lenses to help cyclists with small vision problems.

Most cyclists wear protective gear to limit damage in the event of an accident, but our eyes? We only have one series, so it's worth taking care of them.
