Ride Your Motorcycle Safely, Comfortably, and in Style With Wiley X Eyewear
Navigating the roads on a motorcycle is an exhilarating ride filled with adventure. As you spend a lazy Saturday cruising the countryside enjoying nature or rev up the engine on a balmy weeknight, feeling the power of the bike hit the pavement is a feeling like no other. However, motorcyclists also know just how uncomfortable it is to ride without the right eyewear.
Function of motorcycle eyewear
Just what function does motorcycle eyewear serve? For those riding a bike, it serves an important function.
Protection from flying debris
When you’re driving in a covered vehicle, you may not think too much about flying debris, unless, of course, a rock cracks your windshield. However, those driving on a motorcycle are exposed to everything and anything that flies around through the air. That means rocks or sticks that other vehicles kick up with their tires or pieces of garbage that flies off the back of open bed trucks become hazardous to unprotected cyclists. Even bits of debris blown around by the wind may irritate the rider’s eyes. Eyewear forms a protective layer between the rider and the debris.
Shield from the elements
Protective eyewear shields the eyes from the elements such as the wind, the sun, and the rain. When a biker heads out for a ride, he or she is exposed to all of the elements in a much more intense way than when in a covered vehicle. A gorgeous sunny day is overwhelmingly blinding for riders without high-quality sunglasses. Squinting is just one problem of driving during a bright day. Another issue for riders is keeping the eyes protected from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
Another of the elements that pose trouble for riders is the wind. The continual blowing of air across your eyes soon brings tearing and blurred vision. Wiping your eyes if this occurs is not safe or convenient. The best prevention is protective eyewear.
When the day turns cloudy and it begins to rain, the right kind of eyewear shuts out the raindrops from pouring into your eyes. Visibility is preserved.
Eyewear enhances visibility for all of the reasons listed above. Also, those riders who wear corrective lenses won’t need to worry about wearing an extra pair of glasses if they get motorcycle prescription glasses. Glasses such as the ones made by Wiley X are durable enough to fulfill all the rider’s needs.
Abide the law of certain states
Many states have now enacted laws stating motorcyclists must wear protective eyewear. These laws were created to make sure motorcycle riders are safe when on the road. It is likely that all states will eventually adopt these laws.
The benefits of protective eyewear for motorcyclists is essential. Besides that, they look great, too! When selecting your protective eyewear, getting the best in quality is so important.
