What are the best sunglasses for sports?
The best pair of sunglasses for sporting activities is the pair that stays on your face. Whether you’re running, biking, hiking or playing tennis, the last thing you need is for your sunglasses to slide off.
Our specially selected assortment of sports sunglasses feature lightweight but durable frames. Most models also provide a full wrap fit that gives total eye protection and keeps out harmful UVA and UVB rays, wind and glare. Ready to tackle that triathlon? We’ve got the sunglasses… all you need is the desire!
It’s the wraparound frame found in sports sunglasses that defines them and gives them their advantage over other shades. Some wraparound sport sunglasses feature one continuous lens while others have 2 lenses (typical of standard sunglasses). Besides lenses, you’ll also notice that frames include full-frame and semi-rimless styles.
Semi-rimless sunglasses feature a band across the brow with the lenses suspended below it. This style provides a clear field of vision without a frame to disrupt the view. As the peripheral view is uninterrupted and allows you to concentrate on the track in front of you, you’ll often find this style on running sunglasses and cycling sunglasses.
Wraparound sport sunglasses also protect your vision from peripheral light. Try a pair on and notice that, unlike traditional men’s sunglasses, your eyes are shielded even on the sides. This will reduce eye strain and protect the delicate skin surrounding your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.
Shop our selection for shatterproof polycarbonate lenses as well. These are impact resistant and make sporting activities that much safer.
We offer a selection of biker goggles and biker sunglasses for the wannabe biker or the motorcycle enthusiast. These biker sunglasses include soft foam padding on the interior that prevents dust, debris and wind from hurting your eyes and clouding your vision.
Polarised Sports Sunglasses
If ever there was a need for polarised lenses, it would be in a pair of sport sunglasses for men. Polarised lenses are designed to eliminate glare from water, snow, the road or bike in front of you, etc. Since sport sunglasses and biker sunglasses are used for sports, it makes sense that reducing glare would be important.
Combine polarised lenses with UV protection and you’ve got a safe and secure way to enjoy your favourite pastime.
