I'm thinking about getting some prescription glasses for riding with. Getting pissed off using contacts all the time, especially off road as mud and stuff can dislodge them, seen a few brands but wanted to see if anyone has any experience with any of them or recommendations.

I have a pair of sports glasses that I got from Tesco £40 (inc eye test)

They're OK for the money, but probably not as good quality as top brand names.

But saying that, I don't care if the lenses scratch a little, or if I drop them, tis only £40, not £140

Here's a pic of them: http://www.flickr.com/photos/flyingpie/456889241/

The ones that I have aren't on Tesco on-line opticians, but they are in-store in the opticians in Tesco.

I use a pair of Osiris frames with "Shooters Yellow" lenses from Specsavers :shock: Really good for night riding and dusk, but equilly good in sunny conditions.

£125 though :(

Oh, and aparently they make me look like Ali G :lol: Especially when i wear my skull cap :roll:

Otherwise have a gander at www.rxsport.co.uk

You can select up to 6 pairs and they will send them to you to try before you buy which was super useful if your not sure what style will suite you :idea: They do loads of styles, and lots with lenses that are interchangeable.
