Mountain biking sunglasses

Mountain biking requires riding over rough terrain, whether on country back roads or narrow trails that wind through forests, mountains, deserts, or fields.

Mountain bike riders require superb optics from their mountain bike sunglasses that allow them to see obstacles on the path ahead and offer protection against the perils of wind, dust, branches, mud and stones.

Mountain biking sunglasses have to be good in the low light of forested trails and the bright light of deserts and fields. Mountain bike sunglasses need to be versatile and adaptable for any trail and lighting condition.

AMO's mountain biking sunglasses offer the option of interchangeable lenses: low light lenses and photochromic lenses which go darker when exposed to UV rays.

AMO's mountain bike sunglasses are tough and use ‘shatterproof’ high-quality polycarbonate or the latest NXT lens materials which comply with ANSI87.1. This means the lens will stop a ¼ inch steel ball traveling at 150 ft/sec or 102 mph from hitting your eye. AMO's mountain bike sunglasses offer superb protection for your eyes.

The temple arms of AMO's mountain biking sunglasses are designed with a flat profile to their temple arms so they fit easily and comfortably in between the straps of your bike helmet.

Whether your style of mountain biking is cross country, trail riding, downhill, freestyle or dirt jumping, at AMO we understand these requirements and have developed a range of mountain bike sunglasses which will uniquely suit the needs of mountain bikers.

But that is not all. AMO recognises that mountain bikers spend a lot of time exposed to the sun and require a pair of mountain bike sunglasses that block 100% of the sun's damaging UVA/UVB rays.

AMO has also added either hydrophobic coatings to its lenses which shed water and sweat or anti-fog coatings which prevent fogging up during riding.

The result is that AMO's mountain bike sunglasses are among the best sunglasses for mountain bikers and are ideal for all road, off road and trail conditions.

AMO's mountain biking sunglasses features:

  • Superb optics and Impact protection up to ANSI87.1 providing protection from wind, dust, branches, mud and stones.
  • Adjustable temple arms and nose pieces so that the sunglasses do not slip down your nose or jump around your face when on those rough off-road trails
  • Hydrophobic or anti-fog lens coatings
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection
  • Vented lenses to limit fogging up or that annoying misting over the lenses.
  • AMO's "Clicklock" system with lens interchangeability (selected models only).
  • Super lightweight, thanks to the use of innovative materials such as Grilamid TR90 frame material.

AMO's mountain bike sunglasses are engineered and designed by mountain bikers and field tested by mountain bikers to ensure you get the very best sports sunglasses.
