Sunwise Valencia glasses£24.99

Modestly priced specs

BikeRadar score3/5

Coming with three lenses and the option for RX optical inserts, Sunwise’s British-designed Valencia shades offer great value.

Build quality is good for such modestly priced sunglasses, but their shape brings them very close to your face; with the RX insert they’re virtually touching your eyes.

The rubber arms are both gripping and comfy, so if these fit the shape of your face they’re a good choice if you wear prescription lenses and are on a budget.
