Pro Triple sunglasses (11)
The Pro Triple is a solid-performing set of glasses for the cash. It comes with a mirrored dark lens for bright sun, which we found really effective; a very orange light-enhancing lens; and a ‘clear’ lens that still offers 100 percent UV protection (though it isn’t quite clear – it has a slight tint, which is worth noting if you’re planning any night rides).
The lenses did steam up but cleared quickly, and though vision wasn’t as pin-sharp as with some pricier glasses, there’s no dizziness-inducing distortion. The soft, rubbery arm tips are very comfortable. Although the lenses aren’t very deep, we found the curved shape fitted right against the face, closing up annoying gaps in vision, and in a tuck we didn’t have any problems with the top of our vision either. Fit seemed on the wide side for female testers.
