Nightime riding glasses

Need some help guys! Lost my clear night glasses, after 10-11 years. Went to the some indy shop I bought the last pair at and got another pair; only problem is, now they're laminated. I cannot wear laminated lenses because of the multiple "lights" that appear; they make my crazy brain even crazier. Does anyone know of a nice plastic frame clear lens eyeglass. Thanks guys.

I have WileyX and they are fantastic. I have transition lenses in them so ride with them day and night. I'm not sure whether the lenses are laminated or not. They are a bit spendy but well worth it.

I use 7Eye by Panoptx brand for my riding glasses (day and night). They have a nice foam seal insert that blocks out the wind, but you can remove that portion if you want just regular glasses. They sell all sorts of frame styles/shapes and lens colors.

Hi, as already stated - WileyX are nice but pricey. I have several goggles for different styles of riding day/night etc. These from Black Brand "Veteran" are good and retails at about US$ 40.00. Have inter-changeable lenses (clear, yellow and smoke).


And even less for the wrap-around goggle from Bobster. Retails for less than US$ 20.00!

I second the WileyX transition. I love them, especially when you are in those times when the sun is just coming up, or just setting.

I got the cheapo $10 ones with foam around the sides from a local dealer. Though don't know if they are laminated or not.

Wiley X transition ... Prescription and no line bifocals. Good glasses I have two pairs of Blink, one pair of Air Rage, and one pair of Brick.

Had a pair where the Arm broke in the second year, replaced 2 years under warranty very easy to work with and stand behind their products.
