Giant’s expansion into making pretty much everything bike continues with eyewear added to its ever-expanding range, and these Apus Sunglasses.

The Apus is a single shield lens with frameless arms, the lens is mid-sized at 50mm deep and the photochromic action takes them from clear to a dark smoke in around 30 seconds.

The arms lock in place and their narrowing shaped design means they work well with any helmet.

Despite having little in the way of structure they’re actually quite rigid as the frame material is thicker than most, coverage is excellent and the open design means little in the way of fogging too.

The nose piece has adjustable pads, but I never got them quite as grippy as others I’ve tested so we wouldn’t recommend these for anything but road riding.

In that regard however, these are lightweight glasses with a great clarity to the lens with plenty of extras and at a great price.
