Trail/ultra running sunglasses

Trail running or ultra marathons involve running through forests, mountains, deserts or fields over rough ground.

Trail runners and ultra marathon runners require sports sunglasses that are super comfortable and will not bounce around during long runs. Trail running sunglasses must provide great definition in the low light of the forest so that runners clearly see obstacles and protection against the perils of wind, dust and branches.

Trail runners and ultra marathon runners are on the trails for many hours at a time and need sports sunglasses that are comfortable, lightweight, fit the head well and adapt to all trails and all lighting conditions.

AMO offers a good choice of trail running sunglasses: Firstly, they all are super light due to their lightweight design and lightweight materials. Secondly, they are all exceptionally comfortable due to adjustable soft nose pieces and temple arms that ensure AMO sports sunglasses ‘stick’ to your head. AMO's engineered design also allows snug fitting even on the smallest head.

The design of AMO's trail running sunglasses are all "half rimmed frames" which means they are more lightweight than full-framed sunglasses and provide better all round vision so that you can see all of the trail in front of you. The half-rimmed frames have no bottom part to the frame which allows water and sweat to drip quickly off the lenses.

AMO's trail running sunglasses also have the option of interchangeable lenses, low light lenses and photochromic lenses which go darker when exposed to UV rays.

Trail runners also need protection against wind, dust and branches. AMO's trail running sunglasses 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 trail running sunglasses offer superb protection for your eyes.

But that is not all. AMO recognises that trail runners spend a lot of time exposed to the sun and require a pair of trail running sunglasses that blocks 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 excercise.

At AMO we understand these requirements and have developed a range of trail running sunglasses which will uniquely suit the needs of trail runners and ultra-marathon runners.

AMO's trail running sunglasses features:

  • Superb optics
  • 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 while running
  • 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 trail running and ultra marathon sunglasses are engineered and designed by trail runners and field tested by trail runners to ensure you get the very best sports sunglasses.
