LOMO Cycling Glasses Review



I have a LOMO waterproof rucksack to test and review, but due to the dry summer here i will do a review before Autumn when i will use the bag daily commuting. So i was recently sent a pair of LOMO Elite cycling glasses from Mark at LOMO Water sports in Glasgow to use and review....


Been riding with these daily on the commute as well as on the coast and trails for a month now.
The glasses come with a clear lenses and also a yellow/orange lenses for low light conditions...
The clear lenses have a slight tint, being UV400 Category 2...


The interchangeable lenses are easy to change and i have not had a lenses pop out accidental while wearing cycling , or in their carry pouch when in a pocket etc, as i have had on other makes of cycling glasses with changeable lenses i have owned.
The arms are what have impressed me most, as the glasses do not slide down your nose, allowing you to wear then away from your face whilst climbing when you often overheat...


Fitment of glasses is i guess like helmets and some do not suit some people. These fit me great and if like me and you sweat a bit while cycling then you will like these glasses as they seem to wipe clean easily and not smear  the lenses like a few pairs of other glasses  i own do too easily.
And on that note they are really good for demisting quickly, whether if you do this by moving away from a standstill, or wear them perched away from your eyes a bit to allow air flow. I think they are very impressive for the price which i will come to in a bit...


The amber lenses are also UV400 Category 2 and have been useful on overcast evenings and i will be using these for night rides come the dark winter evenings...


Here is a picture on an overcast evening...


Then again through the lenses, still a bit bright for these lenses but you can see the improved clarity...


They are good for beach riding, they seem to do a good job of both allowing air in behind to demist, and also keep blowing sand out...


So the bit you want to know is how much?,
£10 for the glasses, with two sets of lenses and the bag to keep them in, and for that these glasses with their performance which is better than a £30 well known brand of cycling glasses i bought which steam up easily and also move down your nose, and are useless into direct sunlight,
These an absolute bargain and i have found work really well. For that i would give these 10/10  for value and use.

Here is a video by Mark at LOMO on the glasses
