Performance and Sport Sunglasses

Extreme sports adventures and outdoor recreation activities are currently all the rage. Physical endeavors such as snowboarding, mountain biking, golfing, rock climbing, kayaking and in-line skating are some favorite ways to spend leisure time. All of these actions have created a boom in the demand for specialized sunglasses.

Eyewear that is designed for outdoor activity is light and comfortable, yet durable enough to withstand the tests of extreme weather conditions and strenuous pursuits. Made to stay in place throughout all types of movement, sunglasses for performance and sports will also upgrade your game.

Sunglass Lenses

When it comes to effective sunwear for your eyes, visual clarity is of supreme importance. When playing hard and fast, you need high optical quality in order to react quickly. An extensive array of lens tints is available to modify light and enhance visual contrast – so you see the ball with more than enough time to make contact.

The lenses of choice for most sport sunglasses are made of polycarbonate, which is exceptionally strong, lightweight and highly impact-resistant. Polarized lenses are another option, as they are effective at reducing reflected glare from surfaces like a flat field of snow or a lake. However, professionals debate about the wisdom of wearing polarized lenses for sports such as mogul and downhill skiing, because sighting the reflection of icy patches on the slopes may offer safety benefits.

Sporty Frames

Sports sunglasses are generally composed of materials like polyamide, which offers maximum strength and minimal weight. It also tends to maintain shape, even when under stress.

As for style, performance sunglasses often follow aerodynamic design, with sleek and streamlined forms. Features include non-slip nose pads and temple grips, which hold eyewear in place even when perspiration accumulates under the heat of competition.

Name Your Game

Sport-specific sunglasses address the unique visual requirements of each type of sport. Whether you swing clubs on the golf course, bicycle on rocky trails, sail the waters or climb steep cliffs, specialized frames and lenses are available to meet your needs.

Depending upon your sport, the tint of your lenses can grant your performance a superior edge. Certain lens tones may help a golfer detect subtle movements in the blades of grass, which will affect the line of their putt. Yet a hunter may need a totally different tint in order to spot the contrast of a bird gliding through a dim, cloudy sky. People who pride themselves on being a pro at many sports will appreciate multi-purpose performance sunglasses. These sunwear frames offer interchangeable lenses with a variety of tints to suit different environmental and lighting conditions.
