In the previous article, we discussed “Should you wear sunglasses while cycling?”. In this article, let’s talk about “What tint colors are most useful for cycling sunglasses?”.
Most cyclists ride on the road and feel that the road reflects more sunlight than the muddy ground. Since the rider spends more time looking directly at the road, it will receive more UV reflections. Cataracts can be caused by absorbing UV rays in the eyes for a long time. Cycling glasses can greatly protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays, and effectively reduce the impact of foreign bodies and sand on the eyes. The following five types of lenses can solve visual problems for riders.
