“Summer’s here and the riding is easyyyyy…” Yes, it’s that time of year when it’s time to roam the urban jungle adorned with stylish sun protectors
Eight pairs of cycling sunglasses for summer style and protection, from as little as £30
The Tifosi Hagen XL Bronze Polarized Clarion XL is similarly shaped to Oakley’s Sliver XL, with a semi-Wayfarer look that’s slightly squared off. The frame finish is pre-worn and a good match to the pre-aged brown-bronze frame. Clarity is superb and, despite featuring basically flat lenses, they’re quality on the bike, shielding both sun and wind proficiently and not fogging too severely when working hard. The 27.5g weight combined with proper sprung metal hinges are quality touches, and they stay put on the most erratic terrain. Included in the price is a hardcase and soft cleaning bag-come-pouch, making these one of the best-value pairs of sunglasses on test.
