Uvex Blaze glasses£34.99

Not for the rough stuff

BikeRadar score2.5/5

The Uvex Blaze glasses come with two sets of lenses to choose from and a padded carry case. We only ever used the orange tinted lenses since the fantastic British summer never necessitated switching to the dark tinted lenses – but clarity was great and they worked well in most situations.

The frame itself is reasonably flexible to avoid breakage in the event of a spill, which is always handy. The shape of the arm though doesn’t hug the head quite as well as we’d like, and when this is paired with the small rubber grippers on the inside of each arm, we found they would bounce around when the trail got rough, which isn’t ideal.
