what sunglasses does everyone have and do they keep bugs and air out of the eyes. and of coasrse they would be worn under the helmetJune 4, 2008 at 9:50 pm #7002RydRyParticipant
I wear a few types, none of them keep air out- goggles do- I wear oakleys under the helmet and also smiths and von zipper- I prefer the plastic wrap around styles like smith and vonzipper to the metal oakleyys for keeping bugs out if the shield is upJune 4, 2008 at 10:36 pm #7005AnonymousGuest
Photochromic are best. Those are the ones that go dark when it’s bright and clear when it’s not.
I know you can get them in prescription lenses but not sure if you can get them in regular sunglasses.
Wear a full-face helmet and that’ll keep the wind out (and also might save your face from being scraped-off).June 5, 2008 at 12:23 am #7016JirikiParticipant
RF-1000 with tinted shield for day and clear for night
i don’t understand how you can wear sunglasses under a full face helmet, but I hear you need to make sure that the ear pieces aren’t too longJune 24, 2008 at 1:58 pm #7743BuddParticipant
I have a pair of native polarized sport sunglasses. They fit inside my helmet fine. They are vented on top to prevent fogging. Mine came with 4 different lenses: smoke, clear, orange, and yellow. I have light sensetive eyes so sunglasses are a must for me even on overcast days.

CX-1V Spectra Blue visor for Shoei RF-1000. Don’t wear sunglasses underneath as the visor’s tinted already and sunglasses just feel kinda awkward under the hood.

I have some Chillis that I wore the first couple rides but they don’t fit under the helmet that well. I also noticed a kind of prism effect when I wore them with my face shield closed. I assumed this was because both are polarized. I stopped wearing them after that and I’m trying to track down a tinted face shield but even the clear shield helps cut the glare.June 24, 2008 at 5:40 pm #7752canstaettParticipant
I have to wear glasses al the time. I wear them under my RF-1000- just put the helmet on first and then slide the glasses on. Takes a bit of practice to get it right, but its perfectly comfortable and I haven’t had any problems, andI only have to switch to my sunglasses for the ride home in the glorious AZ sun rather than switching out the whole face sheild. I just wear my regular glasses in the morning- again, no problems, even with oncoming headlights.June 24, 2008 at 8:20 pm #7762BenParticipant
I wear some safety glasses that I got from work. They are tinted about as much as my dark smoke visor and a lot faster to put on so I have been wearing them quite a bit.
