HOW TO GET A FOG-RESISTANT FIT

Fogging is one of the most common issues with high performance eyewear. More than anything, fogging problems can be mitigated by choosing glasses that are big enough to allow a significant amount of airflow behind the lens. A snug-fitting pair is much more likely to fog than one that fits correctly. In addition to finding the right size, adjustable nose pads are an excellent anti-fog feature because they allow you to position your eyewear the appropriate distance from your face. If you want the ultimate fog protection, you will combine these tips with our antiFOG lenses.

LENS COVERAGE

Airflow is of critical importance but so is lens coverage. For many, sunlight isn’t the only thing to protect against. Wind, dust and other hazards are considerations for many people—especially those who ride bikes—so please make sure that the lens is big enough to effectively block all of the elements. If you want the best protection, look for a big lens in a frame that draws sufficient airflow across your face, but not so much that the breeze carries in the nasty stuff.

COMFORT

Ultimately, you want to forget you’re wearing them. We encourage you to buy the right pair at an authorized Ryders dealer because the best way to find the right frame is by trying them on. Some people like customizable components such as adjustable nose pads or temple tips (included on select models). They’re not only for comfort and stability, they’re also used to combat fogging because they allow you to angle and position your eyewear the appropriate distance from your face.

HELMET COMPATIBILITY

Visit an authorized Ryders dealer and try on the glasses. Are they comfy? Now that you have your helmet on, are they still comfy? Not everyone buys RYDERS for helmet sports, but if that’s what you’re up to, helmet compatibility is critical.

Find a pair of glasses that won’t give you any interference. Straps and other retention devices should be considered. Airflow is also affected once your helmet is on, so try to make sure that your glasses have adequate breathing room when worn with a helmet. Both airflow and helmet interference problems can be combated with adjustable temple tips. They allow you to angle the frame for ventilation, and can be manually formed around retention devices.

ANTI-SLIP PARTS

All RYDERS TR90 frames have anti-slip, hydrophilic nose pads. If your past experience with eyewear is that they slip down your nose, these pads will make a huge difference. If you want extra stability, look for frames that also have hydrophilic temple tips. For the next level of slip-resistance, choose a model with adjustable components.

SIZING

The sizes listed on this site should help you choose your fit, though it’s difficult if you don’t have a baseline. Unfortunately, eyewear sizing is complicated—it’s not just about frame widths and heights. Lens angles (pantoscopic tilt), width of nose bridge, height of nose bridge and length of temple tips all play important roles in how a product will fit on your face. There is no simple measurement that can be taken to ensure the proper fit. This is why we encourage you to buy the right pair at an authorized Ryders dealer where you can try them on. If this isn’t an option for you, you can look at our sizing and measurements to get a general idea of what might be the right fit.

Photochromic

When the sunlight changes, the tint changes.

When the sunlight changes, the tint changes. The science behind it is complicated but the result is as simple as that. Each Photochromic lens contains millions of organic molecules that react to UV light. When exposed, the molecules change shape, absorbing light and making the lens darker. When there is less UV light, the opposite reaction takes place and the lens tint becomes lighter. Like all of our lenses, our Photochromics are impact resistant and optically correct with 100% UVA, UVB, UVC protection.

    Lens Features

    100% UV400 Protection

    All of our lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays and harmful, high energy light to 400nm. These rays are a leading cause of cataracts, skin cancer and wrinkles around the eyes—all great reasons to block them out.

    Hydrophobic + Oleophobic Coating

    An altogether misleading name, this coating isn't nearly as scared of water as water is of the coating. In fact, water runs away at first contact, leaving clear lines of sight that are free from droplets and water marks. The Oleophobic characteristics repel dirt and grease, making the lenses very easy to clean.

    Impact Resistant

    All of our lenses are impact resistant, meaning they resist breaking up into dangerous little shards when impacted. If astronauts trust this material to keep their heads from exploding while on a 17,000 mph space walk, you’ll have nothing to worry about on your adventures, no matter how fast you’re going.

    Optically Correct

    All of our lenses are made by injecting molten polycarbonate into a mold that is specially formed to eliminate distortion. This process makes the lenses optically correct (also referred to as decentred), increasing long-term comfort and minimizing eye fatigue.

    Scratch-Resistant Coating

    We apply a scratch-resistant coating to all of our lenses. Though this process makes the surface of the lens considerably harder than the base lens material, it’s impossible to make the lenses completely scratch proof (short of making them from diamonds) so please care for them properly as they may still scratch under certain conditions.

    Frame Technology

    Adjustable Nose Pads + Temple Tips

    Adjustable nose pads and temple tips allow you to customize the fit of your eyewear for comfort and stability. These components are also used for fine-tuning the amount of airflow behind the lens to keep your face cool and combat fogging.

    Grilamid TR90

    A Swiss technology, this incredible thermoplastic is the material used in all of our sunglasses (with the exception of our metal frames). Its extreme flexibility, durability and light weight make it the perfect material for performance eyewear.

    Hydrophilic Nose Pads + Temple Tips

    Hydrophilic [anti-slip] nose pads are an important feature to look for in performance eyewear. Hydrophilic temple tips give that extra little bit of grip that can come in handy in many situations. The material we use to make these features is so effective that it actually grips better when it’s wet — exactly when it’s needed.
