Back when I first dipped my toes into the world of cycling sunglasses, I'll admit, I was primarily drawn by their sleek designs. The aesthetics were alluring, and honestly, little else mattered to me. But as time went on and I clocked more hours and miles, my perspective evolved. In fact, during my stint racing as an elite amateur in Switzerland, it was rare to see anyone sporting cycling sunglasses. But oh, how times have changed! Over the years, not only have I seen the rise in popularity of these protective shades, but I've also understood their undeniable importance. It's not just about looking sharp on the trail or during a race (though that's a delightful bonus!). There's a world of functionality behind each pair that can make or break your riding experience.
In this piece, I aim to pass on that knowledge. Together, we'll navigate the intricate maze of lenses, pinpoint which are tailor-made for those extended rides, and perhaps debunk a myth or two along the way.
