Eyewear is an essential aspect of kit for road cyclists. They protect your eyes from the sun, at the same time as shielding them from wind, dirt, grit and other road debris.
There are various options at various price points on the market. Matt Stephens runs through the pros and cons.

Rob explains why the Smith Optics Pivlock is probably the best cycling eyewear out there… with or without prescription.
I break down 3 brands of sunglasses (Oakley vs 100% vs POC). This video is supported by Competitive Cyclist, use code VEGANCYCLE15 for 15% off your first purchase here: http://bit.ly/2YnZsuY *Some brands excluded.
The breakdown of these 3 brands (Oakley vs 100% vs POC) is obviously super subjective as this is more about your personal taste. But I really try to talk about the performance of each glass vs their price and their popularity. I also try to show how the glasses improve the visual by overlaying a filter on the video. I am like, super proud of that part 😉

Full disclosure, I USED TO HAVE a deal with POC, they ended that deal a year ago. I tired to get a relationship with 100% but nothing ever came of that, and I am banging down the door of Oakley but havent got anything set up with them yet. So as this video was created, I have ZERO ties to the companies I mentioned here. I dont benefit from giving one a nod over the other, I have no sponsorship obligations to Oakley or 100% or POC.
