Oakley prescription glasses for biking…….
I use full jacket. I would recommend if you get any, buy them from specsavers m(no dont work there). You can find them cheaper, but for £20 you get a 2 year warranty for accidental damage. I paid about £300, but I’ve had them repaired once when they were basically wrote off after a crash, would have been well pissed with out the warranty.
I’ve also had optilabs and was impressed with them, but the oakleys are better. Full jacket are very good on the bike, but wouldn’t wear them off, as has been pointed out to me, “you’d look a t#t walking round with them”.Posted 8 years agofunkynickSubscriber
Rudy Project are supposed to be bringing out a new fancy lens that can take a prescription which look pretty good if their website is to be believed, and they reckoned they’d be cheaper than Oakley… although I inquired about them a while ago and have not heard anything since.
But maybe worth a look into…Posted 8 years agocoatesyMember
Clear and persimmon M-Frames here(almost always clear),excellent for riding. Tried other brands but not a patch on Oakleys, also tried a Yellow lens and found it actually hurt my eyes in bright conditions(i’m a tad sensitive to bright light, but worth being aware of anyway).Posted 8 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
I have Optilabs but they seem quite ‘noisy’ – they make a lot more wind noise than my normal glasses, which is surprising as they appear to look quite aero.
I’d have the Oakleys every time if I could afford them, though there’s nothing massively wrong with the Optilabs, they’re just cheaper in every sense than the real thing.Posted 8 years agostAn-Bad Brains MBCMember
i got my Oakley Square Wires, with transition lense, from Vision Express. I’m very happy with them- i also paid £20 to cover all my specs for replacement or repair if they get scratched or damaged, so dont have to worry toomuch when wiping trail crap off with your shirtPosted 8 years ago
