Guys, I mean, probably not. What do we really need in life? Not much. However, if you spend time outdoors and tend to constantly look for better ways to do things, you might want to check out these shades.

Cycling sunglasses offer better protection from the wind, rain, dust, grit and other stuff that can get into your eyes. Good lenses virtually eliminate distortion and give sharp peripheral vision. The vast majority of sunglasses are unisex and make you forget you’re wearing them. For the most part you can get a pair of these profesh accessories for the same price of regular shades.

Like most things we sell at Bikes&Humans, cycling sunglasses will give you an extra super-power. Unlike most regular sunglasses, these are glare – free and have a bunch of other cool features that are really hard to decipher so I’ll try to do it here.

Lenses

Sports eyewear usually features polycarbonate lenses. These are way better than glass or plastic. They were originally developed for helmet visors for the Air Force, for “bulletproof glass” for banks and other safety applications; this simply means they’re super resistant. It’s great if they have an additional lens for your night rides because these will have you covered from dusk ‘till dawn. If you don’t want to keep changing lenses you might as well get the photochromic ones that adjust rapidly to changing light conditions.

Frame

Some of the best frames nowadays are made out of Grilamid TR-90. Sounds like a medication with diarrhoea as a side effect but it’s actually pretty cool. It’s a material characterized by an extremely high alternative bending strength, low density, and a high resistance to chemical and UV damage. This is to make sure your sunglasses don’t lose their colour and shape.

Ear and nose pads

You need them to have a good grip to your head so your shades don’t move around. Go for hydrophilic rubber nose pad and adjustable temple. Ventilation for increased air flow is also a great feature!
