About Performance Sunglasses

Eye protection is vital for most outdoor activities, especially cycling as debri and spray from the road can be flicked up into your face. A pair of good quality sports sunglasses will help to keep the wind, insects, rain, spray and dust out of your eyes. Dark ones will cut down on light so you don't have to squint to see where you're going. All glasses should eliminate harmful UV rays, protecting your retinas from damage. So that you can protect your eyes in all conditions, glasses with interchangeable lenses are useful. Either that, or get yourself one

No. They are the Prizm lens (next level) I have prizm lens on my ski goggles and they are excellent
So this will be any good for driving?
I think this more for outdoor sporting
Excellent price. Bought a couple, thanks OP.
Sick price. Not sure what the difference is between prizm road and prizm ruby is though. Thinking maybe it's 20% v 17% light transmission, but can't confirm it.

Would take a punt if they were in my preferred EV Zero frame

You want something polarized to reduce glare for driving lenses. Any of these:

Please don't wear sports glasses for anything other than sports activities as intended. You'll look like a prize wally!!

Got these ones, thank you
Good price thanks for the post
Just to make everyone aware, these are MASSIVE, you need a face almost as big as the moon for them not to look ridiculous.

Try them on first big you can.
I'm so tempted but I already have a Shimano cycling glasses which suit me just fine. These do look really cool though. And a really good deal; heat.
Must resist. Already have glasses. I can't work out if these are used as shades or just for clarity. Would these be good for sunshine riding or would you need different lenses as the pics has one with darker lenses and I take it these don't come with it?

I personally use for both. I need prescription glasses for day to day life but use these instead of contacts as everything is so so clear. I've used them for 2 summers and there has not been a day where I've wanted darker glasses for the sun

Thank you! Got it price matched at local Evans Cycles and have them already. They did reject the price match online though...

sold, just bought them even though the bank says NO as I'm sure the Mrs would have. Just gotta sneak them past her when they arrive!
After thinking about these the whole day, I finally bought one. The radar posted above is OOS now but I like the colour on the lenses more on the jawbreker.
What's brilliant about mankind is if that same photo was actually a no name Chinese brand item, people here would downvote it cold even at ~£3

But once they are Oakley's with their snazzy "Prizm" and "unobtainium" performance enhancing features they are suddenly hella valuable! Their marketing men must be circle-jerking with the champagne =D

Indeed, Oakley is such rubbish that the top cyclists in the grand tours choose them

Simple solution: don't buy them and stop whinging.

The jawbreakers, although I've literally just got another email saying they've now been shipped.... 😄
@3722 You heard of corporate sponsorship? You're indirectly paying for that top cyclist to wear these when you buy em, and you buy them because they do, bleh!? And Mikey I ain't whinging, I'm hopeful you'll enjoy your purchase as these are top end sunglasses. Yeah boi!

I see what you mean, and I don't like paying more than I have to for things. The issue with ~£3 Chinese import glasses is that you never know whether they actually have UVA and UVB protection, which is actually worse than not wearing glasses at all if they don't.

Suspect I'll end up flogging mine on eBay tbh (_;) n Oakley are a total rip off, but no more so than a flash watch or designer clothes, this was a really good price for these sunnies.
