Aerodynamic glasses

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Aerodynamic glasses

I heard aerodynamic glasses can help you cycle and protect your fast as well. Can anyone recommend me some because I am a noob even though i cycle a lot.

I think the glasses are to protect your eye-sight, not your speed.

check out ZIPPs website, they just had a press release on some sunglasses with dimples that are based off the 1080 wheelset.

I did a google image search for "glasses protect your fast" and got these.



Problem solved.

Is this an aerodynamic glass?? I guess you'd need at least two to qualify as "aerodynamic glasses".
