Polarized Goggles?
« on: September 30, 2020, 05:39:02 pm »
Howzit, that time of the year again when the sun rises and sets in line with the N1, the glare is blinding at times, I bought a set of Bolle ski goggles which are supposed to be anti glare but they're not effective, my polarized sunnies work but are uncomfortable in the lid so looking for polarized gogs, done a bit of googling and found a few that claim to be polarized but when you read deeper past the marketing claims they're just anti glare, anything legit polarized out there?

You need to be more specific about your needs.
I find polarized sunglasses don't work well with anything else (windscreen, visor).
They are meant to be used on their own, then they work well.

Same will go for goggles.

Dr Sprock,  I wear the gogs behind a clear visor, I like wearing them as they keep residual air and dust away from my eyes which my shades don't do, only my polarized shades work to negate the glare, normal UV tinted shades don't work as well. I tried a tinted visor but lt limits night riding, it's easy to pop the gogs off when te sun sets. Reckon there's a market for polarized goggles seeing that I can't find any on the net.

Dux, thanksfor the input, I've probably been through 10 different fancy tinted  goggles, none unfortunately kill glare as well as polarized lenses do.

Fwiw, I think that any ski-goggles are polarized, and they're not too different than bike goggles.

Don't polarised gogs/specs make the road look green and purple when using a visor?

Need to be used without a screen? Just asking, coz I bought some fisherman's/polarised specs (from a bike shop) a while back, by mistake, and they're pretty weird behind a visor.

Shit would be a better word.

I've used these Dux, and they are great. I think they're called photo-chromatic lenses.
