There is more than one way to ensure that you’ve got the correct lens for any given occasion: you can buy glasses that come with a choice of lenses, or you can get photochromatic lenses which change colour chemically as the amount of UV light increases.
These initially clear lenses start to darken after just a few seconds' exposure to UV light, the full process taking a few minutes. It’s quick enough that if you’re cycling from strong light to shade you never need to remove your shades.
We put this pair to the test during a Grand Fondo that started out under heavy clouds before the Italian sun broke through. The Rydons coped perfectly.
