Motorcycle Goggles Oakville – Invision Optical

As a motorcycle rider, it is essential for you to purchase the necessary accessories that enable your riding safety and comfort such as: helmets, boots, gloves, leathers, jacket and goggles. When you purchase your goggles, you should understand your own riding type which determines the type of goggles required. If you use a full-coverage helmet with a full-face shield you may not need goggles. However, if you prefer an open-faced helmet or a short helmet, then you need to buy riding glasses or goggles.

Types of Motorcycle Goggle Lenses

Polycarbonate Lenses
Polycarbonate lenses are lighter and more scratch-resistant than glass lenses which naturally blocks almost all of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Since it is thinner, lighter, and stronger than glass, polycarbonate lenses are flexible in their own way. However, because polycarbonate is so flexible, it is also easily scratched.

ANSI Approved Safety Glasses
ANSI Approved Safety Glasses have been subjected to numerous tests to ensure that they will protect your eyes, even under the most extreme circumstances. Motorcycle safety glasses are not only great for riding, but they are ideal for law-enforcement, military, construction, laboratory, or industrial usage as well.

UV Protection
Ultraviolet treatments provide your eyes with protection from the Sun’s harmful UV rays. Overexposure to ultraviolet light is believed to be responsible for causing severe eye problems.

Anti-Fog Treatment
These type of lenses reduce fogging while maintaining clean lenses as you ride. An additional helpful feature found on some goggles is “double-sided” anti-fogging, which is great for avoiding fogged lenses in varying temperature extremes.

Polarized Lenses
Polarized lenses are the most effective way to shield the glare while receiving a clean, crisp view of the road. Sources of glare most often include sunlight reflected from wet roads or glass buildings, windshields, and of course direct sunlight. However, polarized lenses can also cause distortion when worn under some full-faced helmets and they are often pricier than traditional lenses.
