Spy Op­tics Klutch gog­gles with Happy Lens £74.99

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED - Ed

Spy’s ‘Happy Lens’ tech­nol­ogy is de­signed to en­hance con­trast and make colours more vivid by let­ting in more long-wave blue light. They reckon this also pro­motes sero­tonin re­lease, mak­ing you feel hap­pier. We can’t say we no­ticed any im­prove­ment in our mood, but the lens def­i­nitely helps to give trail ob­sta­cles bet­ter def­i­ni­tion, apart from in dark woods, where we found the sil­ver mir­ror tint a hin­drance. Thank­fully, a clear lens is in­cluded for th­ese sit­u­a­tions. With its deep dual-den­sity foam and sweat-ab­sorb­ing fleece, the Klutch frame is su­per-comfy on your face. It’s quite nar­row, so the field of vi­sion isn’t the widest, but once you get rid­ing you soon for­get about this. Full-face hel­met com­pat­i­bil­ity is pretty good but, with no out­rig­gers hold­ing the strap, th­ese gog­gles don’t sit on the face quite as well as some. The lack of out­rig­gers does mean they look bet­ter with open-face hel­mets than some other op­tions, although the fairly chunky frame can clash a bit with deep-fit­ting en­duro lids. We love the orange frame and ‘Real­tree’ strap combo, and Spy have loads more cool de­signs in their cat­a­logue too. The Klutch gog­gles aren’t cheap though. www.hot­lines-uk.com
