The importance of using cycling glasses
When you ride your bike, no matter if you are amateur or a professional, sunglasses are necessary. The most obvious reason why a cyclist should always wear sunglasses (i.e. to protect your eyes and ride without problems also when the sun is in front of you) is not the only one, though! The best cycling glasses also have other functions, and to accomplish these objectives they need to have specific peculiarities.
In order to fully understand why glasses are so important for cyclists, just think about what happens when you ride your bike: you often reach high speed and get lashings of air on your eyes and face. In this case glasses can be compared to a windscreen for our eyes, which protects you from wind. Just like the windscreen of a car, moreover, sunglasses protect our eyes also from little insects and pebbles, dust and other foreign bodies that might get into your eyes and cause problems that might be dangerous.
The protective function of sunglasses does not limit to sun and light, it is more complex than that. As far as sun and lights are concerned, moreover, sunglasses do not only protect your eyes from UV rays: each cyclist knows well that during a race, a training session or a simple ride, there can be fast changes from light to shade, dazzling, glares and so on. All these things are not only a source of stress for your eyes, they can also put at risk your safety, distracting you and limiting your visibility. This is why professional glasses can really help you!
Peculiarities of the best cycling glasses
To make all this, sport glasses need to be wraparound to protect your face as much as possible, equipped with anti-reflection and polarized lenses to face the negative effects of light and sun. However, to be comfortable and not to hinder the sport activity, they must be light and adjustable depending on your face.
An example of ideal eyewear is the Boost model, the latest creation by Kayak: thanks to wide lenses, to heavy protection from UV rays and impacts, and to silifon earpieces, Boost glasses have all the typical peculiarities of the perfect cycling glasses!
