Our review

Another good set of sunglasses from Shimano, but not quite up to XTR standards

A good fit out of the box plus adjustable nose pads mean these glasses stay on all types of head shapes very well.


New frames are always noticeable when you first put them on, and it’s an issue that lasts longer with white ones. These are well vented, but sweatier riders will steam up on humid days.

Shimano include easy-to-switch mirrored tint lenses plus a clear set, and a tough soft case whose foam insert has useful cutouts to store the spare eyepieces. There’s also a soft pouch for on-trail storage and cleaning.
