Have you ever been frustrated because your bike computer is just a little out of focus? For cyclists with less than perfect vision, it can be challenging to find cycling sunglasses that provide protection, variable tint, AND magnification.
Not anymore! Cycle Journey’s Photochromic Bifocal Sunglasses are especially designed by cyclists for cyclists! These sunglasses feature a bifocal pane in the lower part of the lenses to enable farsighted riders to read their bike computer. Like readers you can purchase in the drugstore, they come in multiple diopter strengths:
Cycle Journey’s Photochromic Bifocal Sunglasses do not require a prescription. If you’re unsure which diopter strength you need, try out several readers at your local drugstore. Try reading something at the normal distance your eyes will be from your cycling computer, probably about arm’s length.
The size of the magnifying pane on the sunglasses’ lens is small in comparison to the total lens. This means after you glance at your stats on your computer, your eyes can quickly return to the road without moving your head. Keeping your eyes on the road maximizes your situational awareness and your safety.
What about rides that transition from low light to bright light such as early morning starts or when riding in and out of shade? We have you covered! Cycle Journey’s Photochromic Bifocal Sunglasses are rated category 0-3, meaning they transition from category 0 (no tint) under low light conditions to category 3 (dark tint) with bright sunlight. The tint change is automatic and continuous so you can enjoy your ride without eye strain.
The photochromic category number equates to a percentage of the VLT (Visible Light Transmission). This is how much light the lens lets through.
- Category 0: 80-100% VLT
- Category 1: 46-79% VLT
- Category 2: 18-45% VLT
- Category 3: 8-17% VLT
- Category 4: 3-8% VLT
Category 4 sunglasses are too dark for cycling.
Cycle Journey’s Photochromic Bifocal Sunglasses also provide excellent physical protection for your eyes. They carry a safety glasses Z87+ rating which means they have been tested for high-velocity impact. This is critically important for cyclists due to the high risk of airborne debris while cycling: everything from insects, dust, and dirt to road debris such as small rocks thrown into the air by the wheels of other cyclists. Protect your most valuable asset! Protect your eyes.
Maximize your safety and enjoyment by wearing Cycle Journey’s Photochromic Bifocal Sunglasses on your next ride.
