    Could someone recommend sunglasses for cycling in strong low winter sunshine, such as we are having at the moment. Many thanks.

    I'm getting way more use out of Oakley Prizm Road lenses than I expected. They do the job for me on everything other than the dullest of days.

    Second the oakley prizm lens you can get them in a dozen styles but they're very good in mixed lighting.

    Agree with previous posts. Oakley Prizm all tthe way. Not cheap but definitely worth the extra over other brands.

  • Registered Users Posts: 594 ✭✭✭ARX seems to be the cheapest place for Oakleys at the moment.

    I've been using siroko photochromic polarized and can't complain. haven't done too much low sun in them. but make sure they are on sale. can be picked for 20 odd euro.

    Never used Oakley but have found POC to be brilliant. Extremely comfortable and great lenses

    I own 3 pairs of Oakleys,use them for driving or just out and about,but dont use them on the bike.I've 2 pairs of Tifosi cycling sunglass's for the bike and find them really good at a much cheaper pricepoint than the Oakley's.The pair I wear mostly in winter react to the sun,the lense's darken when it's bright and go clear when it's dark.Am wearing them these dark evenings on the after dinner spins.

    Thank you for your contributions and suggestions. I have more or less decided to order either Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm Road - Light Transmission of 20% - €120 OR Oakley Encoder Prizm Field - Light Transmission of 15% - €140, both available from Bike Discount DE. Any information to help with choice would be appreciated. Many thanks.

    I don't have any experience with the Prizm Field, but I have the Jawbreakers with Prizm Road and I find them great. On the brightest of summers days you might wish you had something darker, but almost every other day I find them fine (I do have a pair of lighter ones if I'm going out on a very dark or rainy day)

    Another +1 for the Jawbreakers, just ordered another pair from Santy
