FEatures of Sports sunglasses: What you need to know

Sports sunglasses are not only a fashion accessory, but also an indispensable tool for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. In this blog post we have summarized the most important features of sports sunglasses for you so that you can make informed decisions when it comes to buying your next sports sunglasses.

UV Protection:

One of the most important features of sports sunglasses is UV protection. The sun's rays contain ultraviolet radiation that can be harmful to your eyes. When buying sports sunglasses, make sure that they offer high UV protection and block both UVA and UVB rays.



It is particularly important for sports sunglasses that the lenses are made of robust and durable material. For this reason, Polycarbonate is a popular material for the lenses of sports sunglasses. Compared to conventional glasses, they are almost unbreakable and offer reliable protection for your eyes. Should the lenses break in very rare cases, polycarbonate does not splinter. In addition, polycarbonate is a very light material, which makes sunglasses with polycarbonate lenses comfortable to wear - especially for long-term sporting activities over a longer period of time.


Sports sunglasses should be made of strong and lightweight materials that can meet the needs of different sports. A popular frame material is TR90. This material is lightweight, flexible and resistant to impact, allowing it to withstand the rigors of athletic activity.


A good fit is crucial to ensure your sports sunglasses sit securely during training or sporting activities. So make sure that the glasses don't slip or become uncomfortable. Adjustable nose pads and temple tips can help customize the fit.


The frame curve of sunglasses refers to the curvature of the lens and frame. Sunglasses with a higher frame curve usually offer a wider field of vision and better peripheral vision. It also conforms better to the face and offers more protection from side light, wind and dust. Especially in "fast" sports such as cycling or skiing, a higher frame curve makes a huge contribution to protecting your eyes from wind and sunlight.



Sports sunglasses fulfill important functions to protect your eyes from harmful sun rays and other environmental influences during sports. Therefore, invest in high-quality sports sunglasses that have been specially developed for your sporting activities. Your eyes will thank you and you can concentrate fully on your sport without compromising on your visual comfort or your safety.
