- Budget MTB sunglasses
Any nice sunglasses out there that won’t break the bank? Heard a lot of people use safety glasses?
Got a long ride coming up and the weather looks good so looking for something soon!Posted 8 months ago
Excellent value for money. Lenses scratch a little easier than better stuff, but in terms of optics and fit, they’re very good indeed.Posted 8 months ago
I got some Evans ones a few weeks ago and they’re great!Posted 8 months ago
The Alpkit ones with 3 lenses are cheap and do the job nicely.Posted 8 months ago
I just bought some Tifosi photochromic ones (£40-ish), having had various super cheap and middling cheap (eg Endura) ones. Very impressed with the optics, fit and speed of transition.Posted 8 months ago
+1 for Tifosi. can get standard with 3 lenses or photo for sub £50, good fit and decent optics. Decent enough anyway.Posted 8 months ago
Tifosi. I got some with clear, light and dark lenses for £30.
These. Not the most stylish but the sweat hole significantly reduces misting up.Posted 8 months ago
I file cycling specific sunglasses next to cycling specific socksPosted 8 months ago
Planet x are selling glasses which are identical to endura mullet for £20.
When I say identical, bar the logo they are the same glasses…
I bought 2 pairs.Posted 8 months ago
I like Uvex. Fit well and usually cheapish!Posted 8 months ago
Decathlon, also have a look at the non bikey ones.Posted 8 months ago
Planet X also have a bunch Oakley-style glasses. Again, apart from the logo you’d have a hard time deciding which was which.Posted 8 months ago
I got a cheap pair for £15, and a photochromic pair for £45 – I’m very pleased with both of them.
Another thumbs up for Planet X. For MTB I wear a 20 year old pair of Oakleys but on road am instantly a Carnac convert. Very light, good optics, look fairly neutral.Posted 8 months ago
Well now i have gone from looking at a couple of pairs to shed loads!
Will look at some of the Tifosi ones.
The Planet X selection is huge!Posted 8 months ago
I have the Merlin own brand glasses. 4 lenses and a hard case for £18. Used them all summer and they are fine. Clear quickly and I prefer the single lens as easier to change and further away from eyes so slightly less fogging.Posted 8 months ago
Check out the bolle safety glasses they are cheap and come in different tints or if you’re lucky they’re free on building sites.Posted 8 months ago
Foakley Jawbreakers from eBay have served me well for years now, picked up a few pairs so have a pair for MTB and pair for Road Riding. On the MTB pair I have picked up an legit oakley clear lens and run that with no issues.Posted 8 months ago
Bolle Contour. Cheap, robust, good fit, clear, amber or dark, good optics.
Readily available and at these prices…
PS – they do scratch up if you face plant at 20mph (as my son did on his road bike) but they don’t disintegrate so I’ll accept that.Posted 8 months ago
I recently got some Tifosi ‘frameless’ glasses which were reasonable & I’ve been very impressed with.
I’ve also got a couple of pairs of Bloc, which are decent quality & reasonably priced.
And some cheap Uvex with clear lenses, which look a bit like safety glasses with sportier arms on. They were pretty cheap & seem to be lasting well – mist up a bit perhaps when you come to a stop, but nothing too bad.Posted 8 months ago
