720 Armour Speeder sunglasses review£74.99

Riding shades from Taiwan

BikeRadar score3/5

With polarised lenses and a tough, flexible plastic frame, the 720 Armour Speeders have all the hallmarks of a decent pair of sports specs.

Certainly the lenses provide excellent optical clarity, with no blurry edges, and vents above the lenses prevent steaming even after hard efforts.

The frames have a pronounced curve, which meant they fit smallish heads well, but bigger bonced riders weren’t so keen, and only one size is available.

The adjustable nosepiece makes decent positioning simple, but both the frame and bottom of the lens creep into view.
