Triathlon sunglasses

Triathlon sunglasses and some features and pricing issues to be aware of.

There are many choices available when it comes to picking out triathlon sunglasses. The prices are as varied as the features but protecting your eyes is the main consideration. There are so many options these days when it comes to picking the triathlon sunglasses it can be confusing.

To make the choice a little easier there are several things to take into account that will narrow down your options.

BEGINNER TRIATHLETE? IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS WHEN PURCHASING SUNGLASSES

The first thing to think about is the real reason you need sunglasses in the first place. It has most to do with protecting your eyes from errant bugs and other foreign matter than anything else.

So the number one reason has nothing really to do with the glare, quality of frames, or scientific ingenuity of a particular pair of sunglasses. Your first consideration is to protect your eyes and everything else is secondary. Sunglasses are just as important as a helmet when it comes to personal safety.

That being said you have to decide how much you want to spend on triathlon sunglasses. You can buy sunglasses anywhere from $10 to over $200. A $10 pair will be just as effective against an errant hornet as a $200 pair.

Some sunglasses are scratch-resistant and some come with inter-changeable lenses. Some frames are more durable than others and some simply fit better. Regardless of the amount you decide to spend, make sure they have a nice snug, comfortable fit. If you have an Ironman Triathlon in your future you will be wearing them for many hours during training.

A FEW BRANDS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING TRIATHLON SUNGLASSES

If finances are not a concern, then RUDY PROJECT makes spectacular looking sunglasses. They have all the latest in advanced materials and design elements specifically for the sport of triathlon. If you are looking for a high-end pair of frame-less sunglasses there might do the trick.

RUDY NOYZ SUNGLASSES

Be prepared to spend over $225.00 for a pair of these high end sunglasses. All their triathlon sunglasses can be Rx’d using a variety of methods. This includes their patented snap-in, snap-out Rx adapters and Industry leading digital sport prescription lenses.

The Oakley RADAR XL is a specially designed edition of their Radar eye-wear. With an extra 7mm between the nose bridge and the top of the frame, this XL version extends the range of vision and that’s a benefit for triathletes.

OAKLEY RADAR

Because Oakley is also top-of-the-line you can often expect to pay well over $200 for these as well.

For those who are on a budget and simply are not willing or able to put out this much money for a pair of sunglasses, not to worry.

Choosing an affordable, functional pair of sunglasses is no different than having a reliable, perfectly-fitting $1500 road-bike. It’s not always necessary to have a high-end $6000 triathlon bike to suit your purpose. The same goes for sunglasses.

You will most likely have triathlon race results that are really not that much different regardless how money you spend. It still comes down to your own determination and ability and not how much you spend on equipment.

My own personal choice for sunglasses on a budget would be the BIKE NASHBAR no-frame. I personally have never been a fan of frames on triathlon sunglasses. The no-frame look means you don’t have to worry about changing positions when you are in the aero position on the bike in order to peek over the frames.

NASHBAR NO-FRAMES

The no-frame is one of the features of these sunglasses by Nashbar.

The Nashbar No-Frame sunglasses feature sturdy polycarbonate construction and a unique frame-less design. This design offers unimpaired peripheral vision and a clear view forward when you’re tucked in an aero position.

Another advantage is that no frame also means lighter weight–you may even forget you’re wearing glasses.

The lenses are not interchangeable, but that doesn’t matter all that much because they sell for $14.99 a pair and I would suggest buying two pairs.

You can choose from smoke grey, yellow, amber or clear.

I would highly recommend the yellow pair pictured above for cloudy, over-cast days. They will really brighten things up and perhaps a smoke-grey pair that will diminish the glare on bright, sunny days.

At the halfway point of the run it was Braden Currie in the lead. Terenzo Bozzone fell off the pace into third as Marko Albert took up the chase in second place.

Cameron Brown and Cyril Viennot were fourth and fifth but were well off the pace of the three podium contenders in front of them.

Entering the last 10k of the run Braden Currie extended his lead over Marko Albert who was falling off the pace in second place.

There was no catching Currie and he claims top spot in the Ironman New Zealand results 2017.

Meredith Kessler went into the race as the one to beat for the pro women as she set out to defend her 2016 New Zealand title.

However, Annabel Luxford of Australia and several others were capable of mounting a serious challenge on their best effort.

It was no surprise at all to see these two top female pros come out of the water virtually together. Kessler was first in 53:23, but just two seconds ahead of Luxford.

The rest of the field had at least five minutes to make up on the two leaders.

Laura Siddall of Great Britain posted a bike split time of 5:05 and it gave her a short lead as the run began.

Siddall was passed by Meridith Kessler and Annabel Luxford who battled it out for first and second place in the early going.

It wasn’t long before Jocelyn McCauley joined the fray. She moved into second place and was hot on the trial of Kessler as they reached the 10k mark.

McCauley made the pass for first place and was still in the lead as she reached the 30k mark Her lead was over six minutes. By 33k the spread was up to nine minutes.

A big push by Siddall to move from fourth to second in the last quarter of the marathon.

Jocelyn McCauley is the winner of Ironman New Zealand 2017. Laura Siddall finishes second and Meredith Kessler rounds out the podium in the Ironman New Zealand results 2017.
