Whether a newbie or a seasoned rider with many years of experience, all motorcyclists know the importance of wearing properly protective eyewear. Motorcycle sunglasses with incorporated foam tick all the boxes, providing superior levels of both eye protection and comfort. There is a dizzying array of options when it comes to foam-padded sunglasses, including those with bifocal lenses and removable padding – and we round up some of the best of them below.
Oriole Blue-Lens Biker Sunglasses
Incorporating sleek black frames with blue lenses, these padded motorcycle sunglasses have been designed to provide a secure, comfortable fit and great performance. The robust frame has rubber ear tips – again, to promote the best comfort levels possible – while the padding is constructed from EVA foam. The latter allows for adequate ventilation to prevent fogging while also offering protection from the wind and flying debris.
The lenses’ UV protection is first-rate – at UV400, they provide top-flight protection from the sun’s harmful rays, and are made from tough, shatterproof polycarbonate, finished off with a scratch-resistant coating.
Oriole Red Mirror Motorcycle Sunglasses
These shades offer a universal fit and an aerodynamic design, while the blocky black rectangular frame and red mirrored lenses up the style ante. The vented EVA padding offers both additional protection and comfort and the anti-fog, anti-scratch lenses provide superior visual clarity and reduce glare while you’re on the road. And, of course, the UV protection levels are 100%.
Snipe Bird Motorcycle Sunglasses with Removable Padding
With the frame’s hint at an aviator glasses shape, lightweight design, and vented removable EVA foam padding, these shades have all the bases covered and are extremely versatile. The thin temples sported by this model have been designed specifically to fit comfortably beneath a bike helmet, and the high-quality smoked lenses offer 100% UV protection. The lenses are shatterproof and have been treated with anti-fog and scratch-resistant coatings, ready to withstand regular daily wear and tear. And when you’re not on the road, the foam padding can be quickly and easily removed, allowing the Snipes to be worn as a pair of regular sunglasses.
Bobster Foamerz Motorcycle Sunglasses
If you’re looking for a quirky, stylish pair of shades, this goggle-like model with amber-tinted lenses could be a great fit for you. The Bobsters are all about maximum comfort, with the wraparound style made to fit perfectly beneath a helmet without any pressure or pinching. The lightweight, polycarbonate frame with closed cell padding is designed to securely hug the head while the anti-fog lenses protect the eyes, making this model an unbeatable combination of good looks and high-performance capabilities.
Patriot Bifocal Padded Motorcycle Glasses
This three-in-one eyewear can be worn with or without foam padding or as goggles using the accompanying strap. With bifocal lenses and a comfortable, sturdy matte black nylon frame, the padding can be easily removed when required, turning these shades into a standard pair of stylish sports glasses. Alternatively, the arms of the sunglasses can be removed, and the elasticated strap attached to transform them into a pair of padded motorcycle goggles.
As well as incorporating shatterproof and anti-fog lenses with a scratch-resistant coating, the Patriot Bifocal Padded Motorcycle Glasses have been manufactured to exceed the safety standards applied to industrial applications.
Bird Fit-Over Clear Padded Motorcycle Glasses
For bikers who wear prescription eyewear, this pair of fit-over glasses could be the perfect solution to keeping the eyes safe while riding. This model fits over most prescription spectacles, and the padded foam fit offers superior protection from the wind and flying debris.
Meeting the ANSI safety standards and with lenses that provide 100% protection from UV rays, these glasses also feature side windows for enhanced peripheral vision, airy, dense foam padding for a high level of both protection and durability and double-sided anti-fog coating to assure visual clarity.
Gasket Foam Padded Motorcycle Glasses
Manufactured to provide outstanding protection from wind, debris, and particulates, these foam-padded motorcycle glasses boast a stylish single-piece lens with a durable selling rubber gasket that adheres comfortably and securely to the face. Suitable for all day-wearing and tough enough for even the most challenging of riding environments, the Gaskets are constructed from super-tough double-injected rubber and polycarbonate and come with an adjustable nylon cord.
Chill Biker Padded Motorcycle Glasses with Pink Frames
The translucent pink frames of this model have thin temples, designed to slip easily beneath either a full-face or three-quarter-face motorcycle helmet, while the vented EVA foam padding ups the comfort and protection levels. The shatterproof polycarbonate lenses provide maximum UV protection and benefit from anti-fog and scratch-resistant coatings. Choose from clear or gradient extra-dark lenses.
