- Best £20 or less Safety/Riding Glasses?

^^must be an individual thing with the Bolle’s – I wear them on the bike occasionally (usually clears at night, as I have Tifosi Fototecs for the day) and also all day, every day at work and I don’t find they distort vision at all.
It was a weird one TBH, off the bike they seemed absolutely fine but then as soon as I got moving…….Posted 4 years agoImabigkidnowSubscriber
I really rate 3m Virtua safety glasses ; they do an amber lense but seemingly not imported into this country, though I’ve not looked hard.
I have a few sets of clear and blue-mirror smoke-tint dotted around the place for easy access and they stay mist free for longer, and when they do mist up , clear faster, with good peripheral vision.Posted 4 years ago
I’m fussy about my glasses too as a prescription glasses/contacts wearer. I hate dirty vision.
£4 a pop (or less in bulk in some places) can’t go wrong.sugdenrMember
Ususally wear the Bolles but I got some of these Avenir ones from Rutland to try, multiple choice lenses (or like me spare lenses when numpty scratches yet another lens).
I’m not fussy, after 3 scratched corneas I’ll wear anything. Nothing like a pain that lasts 2-3 days and cant be dulled except for optical local anathsteic or intravenous medication to make you wear glasses.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I didn’t get on with the Contours, I think the shape just wasn’t right for me so they sat a long way out… But I get on brilliantly with my even cheaper Bolle BL10s, which I think come in a yellow tint (as well as clear, dark, and welding-super-mega-black, if you want to go riding on the sun.Posted 4 years agobenp1Subscriber
I got a pair of Bolle Siliums, the metal framed pair. Preferred them as thought they looked better than the contours and have sprung hinges
Picked up a Bolle safety spec case for them as well so I can dump them in my bag and protect them from scratching
Done the job for me so far, not just flying dirt and flies but branches and leaves tooPosted 4 years ago

Bolle Contour ESPs arrived today. Not sure if it’s me being a weirdo, probably, but they feel a bit off vision wise. Might have a wonky pair, or maybe my eyes are wonky. Will give them a test during the week. Otherwise, it’s back to the drawing board.
Jamie, that’s exactly what myself and a few others said about then just up there ^Posted 4 years agobelugabobMember
Not available in yellow, but…
Been using the clear ones for night riding, for a couple of years. Nice and comfy.Posted 4 years ago100mphplusMember
I’ve been suing Bolle Contours for years and wouldn’t use anything else.
I work for a construction Co and we recently had Bolle and Uvex in when we were reviewing our safety glasses procurement.
They both told us that the £7 safety glasses we were buying were exactly the same as the £40+ glasses they sell under their cycling specific range!!!Posted 4 years ago
