Sunglasses are an absolute necessity when riding in most places in the world, but especially Australia where the sun can be pretty intense for most of the year. Sunglasses don’t just protect you from UV’s though. They’re also great for dust, wind, and anything else the road or trail can dish out.
Sunglasses aren't just a fashion accessory, they shield your eyes from harsh sunlight and UV rays, the wind, rain, dirt and insects. Bike-specific sunglasses should have a wraparound design for a higher level of protection, be lightweight and durable and have shatterproof and colour-tinted lenses to suit a range of lighting conditions.
