For cyclists that typically use bifocals or reading glasses off the bike, being able to read the road ahead and their speed on the computer can be a challenge.
Enter Dual Eyewear, the first cycling specific sunglasses that have a built in magnification section at the bottom of the lens to help put things closer to the rider into clear view. Offering magnification windows of 1.5x, 2.0x and 2.5x, the lenses are made of shatterproof polycarbonate and offer 100% UV protection. They’re available in three styles, the V6 (above, shown with brown lenses), the S4 and the half-framed SL2. All three are available with gray or brown lenses and all use a grippy rubber on the nose and temple to keep them in place. Perhaps the best part is the MSRP, just $49.95.
These were actually introduced back at Interbike, so you may have seen them already. What’s new since then are clear and amber replacement lenses for varying light conditions. Peep ’em after the break along with the other styles…
The replacement lenses are just $19.95 per color and retain the 100% UV protection of the tinted originals. They’re also available in all three magnification options.
The S4 (above) gets an edgier look and full frame. The SL2 shaves a few grams and uses an open frame design, below.
