6 Tips for Choosing the Right Safety Glasses for Motorcycle Riding

Sep 25, 2019

It’s important that you choose the right pair of glasses for when you ride your motorcycle.

Your motorcycle glasses should provide you with comfort, visibility, and protection. Here are some things to look for when choosing motorcycle glasses.


You need to be able to see clearly if you are using sunglasses. Riding a motorcycle requires you to be alert and aware of your surroundings. Don’t use glasses that are too dark, and don’t wear sunglasses at night.


If you are nearsighted, make sure that you get prescription safety glasses. Otherwise, make sure that you get safety glasses that are big enough to fit over your regular glasses. These can be uncomfortable, so consider getting contact lenses.


Your glasses should be comfortable and fit your perfectly. Uncomfortable glasses can distract you when riding, which is not safe.


In some states, you are required to wear shatterproof glasses when riding your motorcycle. The safety requirements and regulations will vary from state to state. In other states, they are not required by law. However, it is always better to be safer rather than sorry. Get a good pair of shatterproof glasses to protect your eyes in case of a fall and to prevent rocks or pebbles from flying into your eyes while riding.


Your glasses need to be compatible with your helmet. If you are wearing a full face helmet that has a face shield, you don’t need large glasses for eye protection. They wouldn’t fit anyways. If you have a half helmet, you should get safety glasses.


Style shouldn’t be that important when choosing motorcycle glasses; compatibility and safety should be your top priorities. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a stylish pair of goggles, we have a large variety of safety glasses you should check out. Contact us for more information.
