How to choose the right sunglasses for your sports activities.

Back to Articles
Sunglasses are a very important accessory for outdoor sports. It protects the eyes not only from ultraviolet radiation but also from wind and dust during hiking, cycling, jogging, etc. When you first time set out a goal to buy sunglasses, it is difficult to understand which criteria are the most important. Let's figure it out together.
First of all, we pay attention to the lenses.
UV protection
All modern sports glasses should protect against UV radiation of all types A, B, and C, although only the first two are a danger for us. UV protection is also available in lenses without darkening. You will find UV protection in all of our eyeglasses.
Protection from bright light
Bright light interferes quite a lot when doing sports. Imagine that you are riding a bicycle towards the boiling sun or trying to hit a ball on a volleyball court without seeing your opponents. A familiar situation? There is a blackout on the lenses specifically for this - it blocks the bright light.



Protection from mechanical damage
Active sports are often associated with the influence of external mechanical factors - these are tree branches or pebbles. Agree, it's not cool if you damage the lenses. Therefore, choose glasses with an impact-resistant lens.
The optical properties of lenses are also important. Let's consider the main parameters.
Contrast
Contrast is a very important characteristic of the lens, allowing you to see the environment clearer. Manufacturers apply special color coatings to the lenses, increasing the contrast. Thanks to this, athletes can see the environment better and prevent dangerous situations.
Lens color
The lens color affects the perception of the environment and its choice depends on the sport. It is known that ski goggles most often have yellow-orange, bronze, or black filters; cycling goggles are made with yellow lenses.
Polarization
The light reflected from some surfaces (water, snow, wet road, car glass) blinds, making the eyes water, leading to fatigue and discomfort. This is especially evident in the mountains. Fishing enthusiasts also suffer from this.
The polarizing filter removes reflected glare, increases the contrast, allowing you to see better.



Lens Coatings:
Oleophobic coating - repels fatty discharge: sweat, fingerprints.
Anti-fog coating - prevents fogging of glasses. For snowboarding and skiing lovers we have SUNSET goggles with anti-fog and scratch-resistant lenses. Rocket Slide click to see them.
Hydrophobic coating works by repelling moisture as it hits the lens.
Frames
The frame should be light and at the same time durable, not hindering movement during sports. Torege sunglasses are equipped with a durable, flexible, and lightweight TR90 frame and ultra-grip hydrophilic nose pads and ear socks.
