Bi-Focal Motorcycle Riding Glasses
When it comes to motorcycling, your vision is critical. As we get older most of us experience some deterioration in our eyesight. These glasses are a great solution for those of you who can see clearly out front, but struggle to read your instrument panel, speedo or GPS. Given the proliferation of ever fluctuating speed zones, this is a pain.
Basically, they are riding glasses with bifocal lenses. The bifocals are available in +1.5, +2.0 and +2.5. Whilst riding you look down the road through the non-magnified lenses and when you want to check your instruments, speedo or GPS you simply look down through the bifocals. How simple is that!
The frames are lightweight and are super flexible. The temples (arms) are flat so they fit comfortably between your head and the helmet. The lenses come in three colours Smoke, Clear and Yellow AND INCLUDE a foam Dust Seal to protect your eyes from fine dust, pollen and other irritants.
The lenses are made from polycarbonate are rated "Medium Impact" have a UV400 rating and a ANSI/ISEA Z87.1/2010 and AS/NZ1337 safety rating.
When I got them thought they were slightly flimsy but actually now used them for a bit, they are quite good. They basically do what you'd expect. I think prescription element on the lense could come a little higher up the lense though, which would allow them to work with a slight nod downwards of the head rather than just lowering your eye line, but it's a small point.
Use them most days on motorbike or as safety glasses , good for both. A bit worried about durability, ie lenses getting scrathed. I have both yellow & clear
WORKS WELL FOR ME, I CAN NOW READ MY ZUMO XT
Ordered the dark glasses but received the clear. Janice from Rocky creek was absolutely fantastic in sending the dark as requested within days of the misorder. On top of that was told to keep the clear "as I might need them". Great service. The glasses are fantastic for looking down at instruments. Plus they fit beautifully under my helmet when riding.
