Every biker should have at least two different pairs of sunglasses with two very different sets of lenses, but most do not. When people talk about motorcycle riding glasses, they often think of the middle of the day in the desert, with the wind whipping sand and dirt up into their eyes. That’s great; most people have a pair just for that occasion, but what about the other times in the day where dark sunglass lenses can be a detriment? What about low light situations where there still may be light, but not enough to warrant your normal motorcycle goggles?
Have you heard of yellow or amber lenses? These particular lenses help to absorb UV and blue light, resulting in a much brighter view for the wearer, no matter if the sun is out or the fog is rolling in. These lenses are best used during the less lit times of the day, such as dawn and dusk, but can also be broken out during cloudy or stormy days. Now of course these lenses aren’t perfect for every situation, and that’s why we recommend the second pair of glasses that best protect your eyes during those hot, sunny days.
