There is something unusually cool about riding a smart bike with cool glasses to match and the wind running through your hair. As any biking enthusiast would share with you, the world looks different, better, and way cooler through tinted biker glasses. And why not! Biker glasses are not just any regular styled glasses. Far from that, these are high definition eyeglasses, which tend to make you stand out wherever you turn your ride. In fact, there is a separate, flourishing industry within the larger eyeglass segment that is dedicated to creating only sturdy and stylish biker glasses, so biking enthusiasts all over the world can enjoy their long rides.
Why biker glasses?
Apart from the style quotient, these biker glasses serve the very important part of protecting a biker's eyes against harsh, strong winds headed his way. At their best speeds, high end, serious bikes can touch tornado speeds, enough to make the wind feel like pellets hitting your face and eyes. That is why apart from a good quality helmet to protect your head, bikers need to also invest in top class eyeglasses that don't crack or break easily on impact.
Such good quality biker glasses also don't fade, despite constant exposure to harsh sunlight and neither do they lose their shape in spite of a hard life of wear and tear. However, bikers do not just need protection from wind they also need protection from the harsh UV rays that threaten to damage their eyes. For this reason, you must ensure that your biker glasses come with UV protection or filter.
Which one to choose?
While such high quality eyeglasses are obviously expensive, but they are more like an investment or like an insurance policy for the eyes. While cheaper glasses are always available and will probably last you a couple of small, around the town rides, but they simply cannot withstand the high wind velocities that come along with a high-speed cross-country drive. The best thing to do is to be practical and buy a good quality branded pair of biker glasses that promises to last, not fade and wraps around your head in a comfortable fit.
Lastly, if you take biking seriously then ensure you match your biker glasses to the color and style of your bike. Usually, your eyeglasses should compliment your bike color, or clash in a real cool way, like fashion blocking. If you have a jet black bike with silver detail work, then you would look the coolest with a similar color combination helmet and silver shaded biker glasses.
