As well as filtering out the worst of the sun’s glare, a well fitting pair of high-tech specs will keep dust and bugs at bay. Giro’s range ticks all these boxes and we’ve been impressed with every model we’ve tried.
The Semi's Zeiss lenses give superb clarity with no noticeable distortion even at the edge of vision, plus full UV protection.
They’ve also stood up to the rigours of life with a clumsy owner remarkably well, having been dropped, sat on, ridden over and lost in the bottom of a backpack for several rides.
They’ve emerged with only a couple of small scuffs, proving that the coating really is tough enough to justify the price.
The deep lenses on our preferred Semis give good coverage and their brown-bronze tint is perfect for lifting contrast in shade without dazzling.
