Key Qualities of Running & Biking Sunglasses:

  • Lightweight sunglasses will give you a barely-there feeling, so you can focus on the scenery — not your shades.
  • Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection will allow you to go further by protecting your eyes every step of the way.
  • Prevent your sunglasses from slipping and bouncing by picking a pair that fits snugly on your face.

Lenses to Look For:
