These motorbike glasses have been specially designed and developed to be worn under various types of helmets (full face helmet, jet helmet, modular helmet…). They can also be used as motorbike sunglasses when equipped with tinted lenses to filter out UV rays. Of course, these glasses can also be worn without a helmet, for example on the beach or when hiking.

In order to maintain your Eyeful motorbike sunglasses over time and to adapt them to your needs, all parts of these innovative glasses are interchangeable (modular system). All parts are available for over 10 years in our EYEFUL stock. The glasses are delivered with thin, but strong and flexible temples, very comfortable to wear, which can be replaced by an elastic strap (also included in the delivery). The material of the temples and frame of the Eyeful motorbike goggles is made of Grilamid, a technical and very resistant material, but still soft and comfortable.

To prevent unpleasant draughts, the Eyeful motorbike glasses have a padded frame made of thermoformed foam. Fogging of the lenses is largely prevented by this specially developed additional frame (included in the scope of delivery).

These glasses can be worn not only for motorcycling, but also for many other sports where helmets are used.

– Tinted lenses

The AKO motorbike glasses are supplied with a choice of 3 coloured eye lenses (front lens) with different filtering properties, which can be selected from 8 different colours. Of course, we leave it to you to choose the colours according to your use of the glasses.

– Lens categories

The filtering properties of the lenses offered with the Eyeful motorbike glasses are divided into 5 different categories:

Category 0: These lenses have light colours (e.g. white) or have a very light tint. They filter 0 to 19% of the sun’s rays and offer aesthetic comfort combined with physical eye protection (e.g. against dust or flies).
Category 1: Lightly tinted lenses (e.g. yellow or orange) in this category filter out between 20% and 57% of the sun’s intensity. This type of filtration is recommended in case of heavy cloud cover, fog or even at night. However, the use of this category is not recommended in strong sunlight.
Category 2: These sun protection lenses are slightly darker than category 1, filtering between 58% and 82%. This protection is suitable for medium light conditions.
Category 3: This category is perfect for most sunny situations. The lenses filter out 83% to 92% of the sunlight. They offer excellent eye protection against sunlight and glare. This light protection is particularly effective in bright sunlight (in summer, by the sea, on the beach and during winter sports).
Category 4: This is the strongest light protection and filters up to 97% of the light. It is used in cases of extreme sunlight where the luminosity is increased tenfold (reflection on snow and water – mountaineering, boating, etc.) Caution: as perception is impaired, it is forbidden to wear lenses of this category when driving a car or motorbike.

EYEFUL AKO glasses comply with the European directive 89/686/EEC according to the standard EN 18836: 2005 / A1: 2007 (sunglasses for general use).

Myopia and motorcycling: which glasses to choose?

In everyday life, eyesight problems can be very disabling despite the existing solutions and all the technologies. On a motorbike, being short-sighted can also have some disadvantages. What solutions are available to motorcyclists with myopia? Can you ride a motorbike with poor eyesight? Are motorbike sunglasses a good solution? The answers.

– Vision problems and motorbikes, what solution?

As road users, motorcyclists, like car drivers, have to meet certain obligations, particularly with regard to possible sight problems. If your eyesight does not allow you to ride in optimal visibility conditions, you are obliged to wear a corrective device, which may be corrective glasses or contact lenses.

In the event of a proven sight problem, your driving licence may mention the obligation to wear a corrective solution (glasses or contact lenses). If you fail to do so, you may be held liable in the event of an accident. In addition, if you are checked without a correction device, you can be fined and even have points taken off your licence.

– Myopia on a motorbike: how to get the right equipment?

Fortunately, the fact that you need optical correction does not prevent you from driving or riding a motorbike. All you need to do is choose a solution that is adapted to your equipment and your vision problems. For optimal visibility on a motorbike, you can choose between wearing glasses or contacts. Glasses are generally less tiring to wear. But if the corrective device does not fit your helmet, they can fog up or be uncomfortable. In this case, opt for anti-fog lenses or special motorbike glasses. As for contact lenses, they can be pleasant to wear and widen the field of vision. But beware of irritation!

In good weather, it is necessary to wear sunglasses that are specifically treated against ultraviolet rays (UV). These can be progressive glasses that adapt to your vision, for example. However, you should be aware that the law prohibits driving with category 4 sunglasses.

– What you should know about corrective lenses

While lenses are an ideal optical correction solution for many people, they are not always appropriate for motorbike riding. Contact lens wearers are often advised to have a pair of glasses as a back-up. It is always possible to lose a lens or have a bad reaction to it. If you are on a motorbike trip, having a pair of glasses will allow you to continue safely and legally.

Contact lenses should be avoided with jet helmets and open face helmets. The wind causes the lens to dry out, which in turn causes irritation. A motorbike mask or a full face helmet should be used in this case.

All opticians are able to fit corrective lenses to the AKO optical kit. You should also know that your health insurance company may cover this expense as part of the reimbursement of vision correction devices.

These lens shields are mounted on the EYEFUL AKO frame and can be changed and replaced at will.
