We don’t always wear sunglasses, or any kind of eye-wear, when we’re out on the bike. However, as summer approaches we should keep an eye on our eyes and wear protection.
Our eyes literally keep us alive on the bike. They are essential for spotting hazards, calculating features and of course taking in the beautiful atmosphere of riding.
As summer comes around, we need to protect our eyes from the sun’s rays. However, it’s also a good idea to pop on a pair even in low light conditions. Off-road cycling comes with many potentially eye-watering hazards – such as branches, debris and bugs flying through the air. All of these can cause a serious accident if they get in your eye.
Here’s our round-up of some of our favourite pairs of stylish and functional MTB sunglasses.
