    Cycling Glasses RECOMMEND ME SOME

    I want to know what are the best value and good looking cycling glasses. I know that some are made for aerodynamics and that stuff, however, I want some that look good and cost around tops 30 bucks. I cycle around 200 miles a week at high speeds but I don't know anything about the sport of cycling, basically, the fance stuff.

    $30 bucks really limits your choices. You could take a look at Tifosi or Optic Nerve, or some of the house brands from Performance or Nashbar.

    If you really want some of the advantages that cycling glasses provide (ventilation, lightweight, good peripheral vision, etc.) then you should probably try to stretch your budget a bit. If all you care about are looks and price, why limit yourself to cycling-style sunglasses?

    very good sunglasses for under $20

    My post from a very similar thread. Not exactly cycling glasses, but for $4.99, worth a try don't you think?

    Just got some Sette Vexx2's and a pair of Vexx3 at Pricepoint.com. Very nice glasses that are so much $ that you worry about losing/breaking them. I can't figure out how to change the lenses on the 2's though.

    Some of the Performance models are nice too, but some not so much.

    $5 safety glasses at Walmart or Home Depot.
    Very comfortable, light enough that you'll forget about them, and great visibility. Problem is they sometimes fog up if you get a sweat going and stop moving for a bit. I only have that problem after my ride when I pull into the garage.

    Oh, and they're UV safe. I wear my amber safety glasses at night, though so it's moot for me. During the day, I wear my regular $20 sunglasses.

    They look a lot like these.

    I got my best cycling glass a a welding supply store. They're comfortable, block UV, and wrap around to keep out flying insects and blowing dust. Like several others mentioned, under $5.00. I've been told they're not bad looking, either.

    Mine are very lightly tinted, which doesn't affect UV protection at all. When the sun is on the horizon, I shade my eyes with a cycling cap, which is one of the all time great ideas.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    I go to Target and get their $20 champion glasses.

    There is one version with lice large lenses, wraparound shape and good rubber nose and ear pads.
    It really depends on your face size though, try some out.
