Spiuk Sonic 2 Glasses review£59.50

Cool looks but not the comfiest shades

BikeRadar score3/5

The Sonic 2s come with a wide frame, deep arms and are rather on the heavy side.

The wide lenses mean that vision to the side is good, but you certainly see too much of the frame when looking down, which isn’t ideal.

While a weight of 32g isn’t excessive, that and the small rubber nose piece means they’re not the most comfy glasses to wear. They come with three different lenses, a hard case and soft pouch.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
