- Where has decent stock (not Oakley) of riding glasses in the South West?
I’ve been struggling to find some proper fitting glasses for riding for ages now, turns out my nose is too wide at the top for most frames…
The Endura range looks good but trying to find somewhere that has a decent but not Oakley priced glasses in stock that I can actually try on before buying but not having much luck…
Anyone know of anywhere that has a decent stock?Posted 5 years ago
Using Bolle safety specs at the moment and although I manged to find one of their models that fits, the coverage isn’t great, big gap under lense to my cheek that lets a lot of splash in.
Hvae been through ~15 different pairs of cheapo safety specs and only found a couple that fitted.Posted 5 years ago
doesn’t protect against things thrown up from rider/vehicle in front which is the cause of my recent glasses paranoia after a piece of metal flicked up by a gritting lorry embedded itself in my eye, which resulted in 2 trips to hospital last week to have said shard of metal (ad then remaining rust) removed from my cornea with evil eye-scarping whizzy brush thingPosted 5 years ago
went into snow and rock on the way home, selection was okish but couldn’t find anything that fit properly except proper dark sunglasses so no option for swapping lenses or lighter tint.
my nearest decathlon is reading, whihc is a bit too far from devon!
anyone know of anywhere else in the SW area that has decent stock?Posted 5 years agobolMember
Like you say, Endura is a good option: tones of choice and fits and relatively cheap. One of my LBS has a huge range, which it looks like they had to commit to for the stand. Stockists near you may have done the same.
I have the same issue of broad nose and in my case “a lot of face”. I tried a lot of Enduras on, but in the end bought some unused Oakley Radar Range glasses from eBay for similar money. Range is their biggest lense which looks much less ridiculous on my face, and may fit yours.Posted 5 years ago
