Bought these last summer for the same price. Not too bad at all, still going strong

What kind of self respecting person wearing skin tight lycra with Sky plastered all over it and most likely suffering from severe haemorrhoids would settle for £3.99 sunglasses from Aldi when they could have the full Oakley experience for 20 times more?

Hmm. The cycling community tends to look down on such people. In reality, if you're cycling slow enough for you to have made out the glasses, then he doesn't belong with us.

As long as they work it doesn't matter. no point in a £300 pound set of Oakley's with a £3 pound rider wearing them.

I wish they'd include clear lenses, for cloudy/windy days.
I've had the Aldi ones before and they snapped after not many wears. I've got the lidl ones too, which I found a lot better, but the little lugs that rest on your nose fell off those. Blue tack makes a nice ghetto fix.

Oculus Reparo.

I bought the ones with the clear lenses some time ago with 2 other coloured lenses and there're great. I am a serious mountain biker and would rather spend £3.99 per pair or even get a few pairs than rather wear my Oakley's just in case they get damaged. Full UV protection offered with these also!

You would be a fool not to give them a go!

Good glasses. Expensive cycling gear doesn't make you a good cyclist.

Since there's no magical fix for becoming a better cyclist I've not replaced my lost wand either. So I'll actually go for that fix as the exact same thing happened to my nose blobs.

If you want clear check out Bolle 'safety' glasses - some look like bad school chemistry ones - others are fine and great value - check out auction sites. But a good brand and great for cycling.

If you want something nice at reasonable cost try Sunwise - which have interchangeable lenes.

I have a few pairs of Oakleys - but don't use for cycling

they're ok - but eventually snap where the rubberised ear piece meets the frame - but for £4 you can't really complain...

They'd still got the £1.99 ones in from the last cycling offers when I looked on Saturday. I got some of them previously to replace a 1993-set of interchangeable lens ones I trod on recently I'll pop & have a look at the new ones

Are these like the dhb ones from wiggle?

Are these like the dhb ones from wiggle?



Nope. I picked these up last year but just couldn't get them to sit comfortably with either of my helmets. I got the wiggle dhb ones free a while back due to what I ordered and they are way better overall and sit very well with all my helmets. So for me the £4 ones were no good but the £20 ish option is fine.

are those polarised? If yes might be good for fishing as well 1

They are really good, so keep em peeled

Just had a closer look. these ones are different

Probably better off sticking with a rod and line for fishing.

Sky skin tight lycra - yes
Aldi glasses - yes
Haemorrhoids - not yet

Does this mean I'm not quite a proper cyclist?

The exact cause of symptomatic hemorrhoids is unknown.[10] A number of … The exact cause of symptomatic hemorrhoids is unknown.[10] A number of factors are believed to play a role, including: irregular bowel habits (constipation or diarrhea), lack of exercise, nutritional factors (low-fiber diets), increased intra-abdominal pressure (prolonged straining, ascites, an intra-abdominal mass, or pregnancy), genetics, an absence of valves within the hemorrhoidal veins, and aging.[4][6] Other factors believed to increase risk include obesity, prolonged sitting,[2] a chronic cough, and pelvic floor dysfunction.[5] Evidence for these associations, however, is poor.[5]
