Specialized ArcTerra glasses review£129.99

All-day shades

BikeRadar score4/5

A large, gently curved lens mounted to a flexible metal frame means these raceday specs fit both large and small faces alike, yet still manage to provide wind protection without fogging.

Frame and lens are carefully connected so that frame flexibility doesn’t create optical distortion, and a minimalist rubber brow-pad keeps sweat away from the eyes.

With a broader range of tints than many other photochromic lenses, the lighter tint of these mountain bike specs was comfortable for everything from overcast drizzle up to blazing Spanish sun – but there’s the darker, road-specific Arc2 model for those dazzling summer days too.
