Motorcycle Riding Glasses with Transition Vantage Lenses

The quest for the perfect pair of motorcycle riding glasses just got a whole lot harder…or a whole lot easier.

Transition Vantage Lenses for Motorcycle Riding Glasses

Motorcycle Riding Glasses with Transition Vantage LensesIt all depends on your point of view. It wasn’t too long ago that the only available option in motorcycle glasses was a shaded lens – basically, a simple set of impact-resistant safety sunglasses. That was it, and the choice was easy. Today there are so many lens variations, treatments, coatings, and frame or goggle options for bikers that some real research and thought needs to go into selecting your glasses. But is that such a bad thing?

Not really. If you just want safety sunglasses for riding, you can still get them, in any shade or color you may need. But if you want to take advantage of other, more advanced vision and light-blocking systems, you can do that, too, and still have a wealth of options to choose from. For example, let’s look at the benefits of two of the most popular lens options for motorcyclists, transitional (or photochromic) lenses and polarized lenses.

Transition (photochromic) Lenses

  • Automatically darken in the presence of UV (ultraviolet) light
  • Return to clear state when used indoors, at night, or away from sunlight
  • Do not darken when exposed to most forms of artificial lighting, indoor or out.

Polarized Lenses

  • Block horizontal light waves
  • Greatly reduce glare
  • Increase contrast and improve visibility

The characteristics of transition and polarized lenses make it hard to choose between them, and you may find yourself wishing you could combine the two systems. Now you can.

The Transitions® Vantage™ lens system introduces variable polarization to the photochromic process. Vantage™ lenses still adapt to changing light but also polarize as they do so. If you’ve ever seen a bright, sunny outdoor day through polarized lenses, you know the difference they make in visual clarity, acuity, contrast enhancement, and glare reduction. The filtering of horizontal light rays is the reason for that.

Shop Transitions Vantage LensesTransitions® Vantage™ lenses provide that variable polarization without sacrificing the darken-lighten cycle that makes photochromic lenses so popular. They also block 100% of the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays. Vantage™ lenses are available in any prescription, lens shape, and in many frame selections, so if you’re ready for riding glasses that provide the ultimate clarity in all types of light, consider a pair with Transitions® Vantage™ lenses. They’ll keep the road in front of you crisp and clear at any given time of the day or night.
