Get your sports glasses ready for winter

Hannah Neuhauser

Winter is just around the corner and with it numerous sports that are waiting for you. With ice,wind, snow, rain and sunshine, it is not that easy to find the right equipment and sports glasses in winter. So that you are really optimally equipped this season, we have all the information ready for you to find the best sports glasses for the winter.

Why do I need sports glasses in winter?

Anyone who likes to do sports in winter will quickly notice that their eyes are particularly vulnerable. Cold wind, rain, snow and ice crystals irritate the eyes. This is not only uncomfortable, but can also be really dangerous. To avoid this situation, sports glasses can help in winter. On beautiful winter days it can also be very sunny. You should not underestimate these UV rays because, just like in summer, they can damage your eyes.

The right “winter sports glasses”

The optimal winter sports glasses are as versatile as the various winter sports themselves. Depending on the weather and the incidence of light, you need different lenses in winter. On rainy or snowy days when there is little natural light, glasses with clear lenses are the best choice as they don't block light but still protect your eyes. On sunny days, it is best to wear sunglasses with UV protection. On particularly beautiful days with lots of sunshine on the glacier, the UV exposure for your eyes is very high, as the surrounding snow also reflects the sunlight. Sports glasses with particularly dark tinted lenses are now in demand. If you don't want to buy new sports glasses for every occasion, we recommend sports glasses with interchangeable lenses. The NAKED Optics models The HAWK and The FALCON are therefore ideal as sports glasses for the winter.

Sports glasses are so versatile in winter

They are ideal for cycling, ski touring, cross-country skiing or, of course, as winter running goggles. In general, it is recommended to wear sports glasses around your eyes when doing outdoor sports. You don't necessarily need new glasses for this. In most cases, you can simply continue to wear your running glasses in winter. Here you can find out more about sports glasses in winter and why they are indispensable, especially when cycling.
