Cycling Prescription Sunglasses

Cycling glasses are plenty, with different shapes and colours to choose from. But if you need a spectacle prescription correction you have one or two ‘special’ frames to choose from Right? At extreme-eyewear.co.uk we’re very happy to tell you no, you can choose from over 95% of our site :-)

Am I stuck with flat non-wrapped cycling prescription sunglasses?

In simple terms no, you can have your prescription directly glazed (fitted) into your own choice of cycling prescription sunglasses. We have every type of lens available including transitions, Vario NXT (Sports specific reaction lenses that have a base tint instead of the classic transitions clear to dark), and polarised prescription lenses.

Of cause we also supply more standard colours as well such as brown, grey, orange, and clear for night / winter.

All the lenses we supply have 100% UV protection, are classified sports protection lenses / impact resistant and come with hard coats. You also have the options of Anti-reflection, and mirror coatings.

What type of Prescription Lenses should I be looking at for Cycling?

You are going to want either a cycling prescription sunglasses that reacts to different light conditions

1) Transitions – this is a brand of reaction lenses. They react from clear to either dark grey or brown. Available with Anti-reflection or a mirror coating. Transitions are the fastest and best lenses on the market and available from Oakley True Digital or our own Xtreme lenses. These lenses are ideal id you commute or cycle at dusk or night time.

2) NXT Vario lenses – these are sports specific lenses supplied with a base tint which stays constant, they then have an additional layer which reacts to the sun light. Ideal if you only use your cycling prescription sunglasses on in the day time. You can choice orange, copper or yellow base tints which will lift your vision in low light.

or a solid tinted lens that copes well with changing light conditions,

1) Choose rose, brown or orange base tints which will lift your contrast and depth perception in low light. A good trick is to choose a cycling prescription sunglasses that has a mirror coating in front of  one of these tints, this way the mirror will reflect away dazzling sunlight when brighter but still have a good contrast lifting tint for lower light conditions.

Why do extreme-eyewear offer own brand lenses as well as branded prescription lenses?

There are two main reasons, the main reason being branded lenses only have a specific power range. With many of our customers prescriptions falling outside these ranges it was important for us to offer a solution.

We have sourced our Xtreme lenses from the company responsible for designing Oakley, Adidas, and Rudy Project prescription lenses. These are FREEFORM digitally precise lenses, which correct your vision across the entire lens from central to peripheral view. These lenses take your prescription, the measurements from your choice cycling prescription sunglasses and your individual pupil distance and recalibrate your prescription across 100’s of reference points over the lens surface. What this means is the lenses physically change power when you view through different points in the lens, with each point having the correct calibration for the exact parameters at that specific point.

What this means in english is that these lenses are incredibly clever and will correct your vision across the entire lens. This is new technology and not offered by the majority of suppliers.

What do I need from my Cycling prescription sunglasses frames?

You can’t go much wrong with staying with plastic frames and steering away from metal frames. Sounds a bit basic? Well it isn’t really much harder than that as Extreme-eyewear filters the frames and lenses to only show you which cycling prescription sunglasses are suitable so we’ve made it easy for you :-)

Another tip is is enter your prescription into the home page and select cycling prescription sunglasses, we will then only show you whats available in your prescription, how good is that!

Bolle Tempest Sunglasses Cycling Prescription Sunglasses

This is the frame to go for if you have a high plus prescription, a classic cycling prescription sunglasses with adjustable nose pads to create the perfect fit.

Bolle prescription sunglasses for Cycling come with a new lens technology called B-thin, this technology uses the simple fact most wears don’t use the last temporal 1/3 of the lenses. They can then effectively make your lenses much thinner, whilst maintaining the appearance of the sunglasses.

We find this technology works really well for plus prescription as the lenses come out looking amazingly thin. High Minus (-3.00 upwards) will also look better as the lens temporal edges will look significantly thinner.

Best Lenses to check out – Bolle Modulator Rose, Rose base tint which reacts to a dark Grey. Ideal for low-medium and bright light whilst maintaining good contrast and depth perception in all light conditions.
