Anyone know of sweat proof glasses?(12 posts)

Anyone know of sweat proof glasses?Dark Sonix
Jul 9, 2002 5:41 AM
I have tried several types of sunglasses for riding (Smith, Dragon, no-name) and constantly have to clean them because of sweat from my brow. Anyone know of glasses that keep the top of frame/lenses away the face, or have some kind of sweat guard on top?

Thanks.

Try using Rain-x or a similar product on the lenses.

It works real well.

Bought one of these a little while back and love it. Has a silicone channel in the front that routes the sweat away from the eyes. Good product.

I'm kind of between sizes in Giro helmets. I'm using one size up and ratcheting the roc-loc all the way down. But, as the thing ages, the pads shrivel and it was turning into a bucket wobbling around on my head.

Put on a headband, and the helmet now fits snug and tight.

This used to be a problem for me until I started wearing them. Try the Coolmax type, they are light, comfortable and you can hand wash them after your ride and they well self dry overnight. I also have a couple of cotton headsweats but I don't wear them when the weather is real hot, actually the cotton ones work reasonably well, the vents from your cycling helmet and the moisture from the cotton work as a cooling effect...
Ditto on the Headsweat. Helped me. (nm)JL

Can't say that I sweat like a pig, but the sweat guard seems to do a pretty good job of keeping the sweat from running into my eyes. But your question seems to be more whether it will keep sweat from getting on the lenses themselves... now that's not a problem that I've ever had, but I can say that the sweatguard on the zeals ought to do that pretty well. I can say that the glasses have not fogged on me with the sweatguard in place or with it off.

I always wear either a cycling cap or bandana under my helmet no matter what the temp is. Either works to draw the perspiration away from your head and eyes too, to keep you cool and seeing well.
