Eye protection is absolutely vital for cycling to protect from debris and upspray which can be flicked up into your face. Specialised cycling sunglasses will help to keep the wind, insects, rain, spray and dust out of your eyes whilst in the saddle, and will help to eliminate harmful UV rays, protecting your retinas from harmful UV Rays.
It’s not often you see a cyclist without a pair of sunglasses, goggles or eye protection on in some form - and if you do happen to see one without, they are usually looking pretty uncomfortable. Amongst our customers, dedicated cycling eyewear is amongst one of the most important products and accessories that they need on any ride out - from mountain biking to road cycling. All of these products have been designed to work well with a range of helmets, whether that's a pair of low profile road cycling glasses, or a set of MTB goggles.
Although some cyclists may get away with not using cycling glasses at low speeds - we recommend them for almost all cyclists, and not just when it’s sunny either. Our full range of eye protection covers both tinted and shaded lenses alongside clear lenses, meaning that the eyes stay protected whatever the light conditions. Many customers choose to buy different replacement lenses, allowing them to select the best lens for the riding conditions.
As well as showing you our best selection of eyewear available online above, below we will also run through some of the many reasons eyewear is one of the most important products in any cycling getup. The main reasons behind wearing eye protection when cycling is undoubtedly eye protection. Cycling glasses and goggles protect the eyes from everything from the damaging UV rays of the sun, right across to road dirt and grime. One of the biggest advantages of wearing cycling eye protection is being able to avoid high speed bugs smashing into your eye, providing an unwelcome and uncomfortable distraction, especially when cycling in traffic or at high speeds.
Eye protection also keeps out wind, which can cause the eyes to stream with tears causing poor visibility, similarly - rain can also be a problem which goggles and glasses protect against.
At Westbrook, we only stock and supply eyewear we know and trust to perform well out in the field, there are no poorly performing foggy lenses here - just high specification and great value eyewear that protects the eyes across any kind of cycling. Oh, lastly - this range of eyewear also finishes off a wide range of cycling outfits nicely and looks fantastic with colour co-ordinate jerseys and helmets, including aero helmets and MTB helmets.
