Pass the lens test with flying colours
Squinting into the sun never helps performance, which is why, protection aside, sunnies are a musthave for runners. But lens colour makes a difference, so choose wisely.
The most common – and darkest – tint. Doesn’t enhance contrast or distort colours. Good for bright sunlight.
Sharpens contrast and visual depth, especially in green and blue environments. Helps combat eye fatigue.
Reduces glare by blocking white light from reflective surfaces, but green shades harder to see in the country.
Brightens shadows, so ideal in low light or hazy conditions. Green lenses also transmit all colours evenly.
Enhances contrast, helping you distinguish obstacles from their background in poor light.
Absorbs highfrequency colours, blue in particular, so good for limiting glare from water. Also good for sun.
