Oak­ley Radar Pace $570

The Radar Pace glasses com­bine Oak­ley’s leg­endary op­ti­cal qual­ity with so­phis­ti­cated voice-ac­ti­vated coach­ing tech­nol­ogy. That’s right, Oak­ley has packed an ac­celerom­e­ter and gy­ro­scope, as well as pres­sure, hu­mid­ity and prox­im­ity sen­sors on the Radar Pace al­low­ing ath­letes to track their work­outs eas­ily. Fur­ther­more, the glasses can also be paired with ex­ter­nal sen­sors so rid­ers can track crit­i­cal data, such as power out­put, heart rate, speed, cadence, dis­tance and time. The glasses mate with the Radar Pace app al­low­ing rid­ers to plan and an­a­lyze their work­outs eas­ily. There is also touch pad on the tem­ples that al­lows for in­stant con­trol of vol­ume, mu­sic and any in­com­ing phone calls. The Radar Pace is a true for­ward-think­ing train­ing tool that also fea­tures some of the best sport op­tics in the in­dus­try. ( ca.oak­ley.com)

Ry­ders In­cline Fyre $220

The In­cline Fyre fea­tures a patented frame con­struc­tion that elim­i­nates what would be the top edge of con­ven­tional frames. This sub­tle change al­lows for un­prece­dented ven­ti­la­tion and im­proves your field of vi­sion. By run­ning the frame on the bot­tom, the risk of a lens cut­ting your face dur­ing a crash is min­i­mized. The de­sign is so sim­ple and ef­fec­tive that it will have most cy­clists ask­ing, “Why didn’t I think of that?” While the frame con­struc­tion is the most ob­vi­ous fea­ture on these glasses, you’ll also ap­pre­ci­ate the hy­drophilic ad­justable nose pads and tem­ple tips as well as the op­ti­cally so­phis­ti­cated, im­pact-re­sis­tant and anti-fog Fyre lenses.

Bollé Aero­max $300

The Aero­max glasses have a num­ber of fea­tures that make them a great pair of cy­cling-spe­cific sun­glasses. From a vis­i­bil­ity stand­point, Bollé’s B-max lens tech­nol­ogy pro­vides wider hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal fields of vi­sion, which are ob­vi­ously use­ful when cy­cling. For fit, Bollé uses its Ther­mo­grip tem­ples and ad­justable nose pads that keep the glasses se­cure even in chal­leng­ing rid­ing con­di­tions. Fi­nally, the Aero­max fea­tures Bollé’s B-clear tech­nol­ogy for im­pres­sive op­ti­cal clar­ity in a va­ri­ety of con­di­tions. ( bolle.com)

Smith Arena $210

With the Arena glasses’ low weight and vis­i­bil­ity en­hanc­ing, frame­less de­sign, they are an ob­vi­ous choice for cy­cling. But Smith is not sat­is­fied with those ob­vi­ous wins. The Arena also fea­tures Pivlock, which is the com­pany’s easy lens-chang­ing tech­nol­ogy. But wait, there’s more – the sun­glasses have Smith’s pro­pri­etary Chromapop tech­nol­ogy that im­proves clar­ity, pro­vides crisper def­i­ni­tion and con­veys more nat­u­ral colours.

BBB Sum­mit $120

With the Sum­mit sun­glasses’ ven­ti­lated lenses and Quick­S­nap lens-change sys­tem, the pair are an ob­vi­ous choice for road or trail rid­ing. bbb treats its lenses with a hy­dropho­bic and anti-fog coat­ing for ex­cel­lent vis­i­bil­ity and clar­ity even in chal­leng­ing weather con­di­tions. bbb also in­cludes a yel­low and a clear lens so you can op­ti­mize the sun­glasses to dif­fer­ent light con­di­tions. Fi­nally, the flex­i­ble tem­ples and ad­justable nose piece pro­vide a se­cure fit even when rid­ing rough ter­rain. ( gw­bi­cy­cle.com)—gusalexan­dropou­los
