Fogging is one of the most common issues with high performance eyewear. More than anything, fogging problems can be mitigated by choosing glasses that are big enough to allow a significant amount of airflow behind the lens. A snug-fitting pair is much more likely to fog than one that fits correctly. In addition to finding the right size, adjustable nose pads are an excellent anti-fog feature because they allow you to position your eyewear the appropriate distance from your face. If you want the ultimate fog protection, you will combine these tips with our antiFOG lenses.

Airflow is of critical importance but so is lens coverage. For many, sunlight isn’t the only thing to protect against. Wind, dust and other hazards are considerations for many people—especially those who ride bikes—so please make sure that the lens is big enough to effectively block all of the elements. If you want the best protection, look for a big lens in a frame that draws sufficient airflow across your face, but not so much that the breeze carries in the nasty stuff.

Ultimately, you want to forget you’re wearing them. We encourage you to buy the right pair at an authorized Ryders dealer because the best way to find the right frame is by trying them on. Some people like customizable components such as adjustable nose pads or temple tips (included on select models). They’re not only for comfort and stability, they’re also used to combat fogging because they allow you to angle and position your eyewear the appropriate distance from your face.

Visit an authorized Ryders dealer and try on the glasses. Are they comfy? Now that you have your helmet on, are they still comfy? Not everyone buys RYDERS for helmet sports, but if that’s what you’re up to, helmet compatibility is critical.

Find a pair of glasses that won’t give you any interference. Straps and other retention devices should be considered. Airflow is also affected once your helmet is on, so try to make sure that your glasses have adequate breathing room when worn with a helmet. Both airflow and helmet interference problems can be combated with adjustable temple tips. They allow you to angle the frame for ventilation, and can be manually formed around retention devices.

All RYDERS TR90 frames have anti-slip, hydrophilic nose pads. If your past experience with eyewear is that they slip down your nose, these pads will make a huge difference. If you want extra stability, look for frames that also have hydrophilic temple tips. For the next level of slip-resistance, choose a model with adjustable components.

The sizes listed on this site should help you choose your fit, though it’s difficult if you don’t have a baseline. Unfortunately, eyewear sizing is complicated—it’s not just about frame widths and heights. Lens angles (pantoscopic tilt), width of nose bridge, height of nose bridge and length of temple tips all play important roles in how a product will fit on your face. There is no simple measurement that can be taken to ensure the proper fit. This is why we encourage you to buy the right pair at an authorized Ryders dealer where you can try them on. If this isn’t an option for you, you can look at our sizing and measurements to get a general idea of what might be the right fit.
