Best cycling eyewear like these Gargoyles Sunglasses are worn by NASCAR great Jimmie Johnson, as well as Manny Puig, who you may have seen on the Discovery Channel or MTV playing with sharks and alligators. This best cycling eyewear guards your eyes from 100% UVA, UVB and UVC light. Gargoyles lenses utilize a scratch-resistant and anti-fog coating, which offer 30% more protection than conventional lens coatings. We got a couple models from Gargoyles Sunglasses including the Balance and Cardinal models. Here's what we thought...
Gargoyles Balance Sunglasses
First a little overview...The Gargoyles Balance is Jimmie Johnson's sunglass of choice off the track. It features rubber temple tips, patterned with a unique micro-signal design to maximize hold and comfort. Smart hinges have a snap-hinge structure for durability and fit. The Balance is available in two lens color technologies, Drive and Terrain. Drive is Gargoyles' smoke colored lens, which reduces light intensity without altering the color of objects. This lens technology has been formulated for varying light conditions and provides the most natural color vision possible. Gargoyle's Terrain lens is a brown and copper blend that enhances contrast by blocking a larger percentage of blue light than gray lenses do. This lens tint is specially calibrated for changes in environmental light and shadow, to provide enhanced contrast and warmer colors.
Besportier says is like it is:
Out of the box we liked these Gargoyles Balance Sunglasses right away. We got the tortoise/brown polarized model and it came in a robust sunglass bag. The glasses are quality made and the first thing we noticed where all the cool details on the glasses like the locking snap pin stop hinge which locks the arms in place, soft rubber temple tip inserts, and the cool Gargolyles logo on the sides. We wore the glasses outside on a sunny day and they put our eyes at peace with warm brown polarized lenses, enough said. They feature a snug fit which is great for active people. Overall, If they work for #48, they'll work for you! Buy these Gargoyles Balance Sunglasses for a price of $95-$130, depending on if the lens is polarized or not.
