Finding the Best Fitting Motorcycle Sunglass Frames for You.
Probably the most complicated part of buying prescription biker glasses is finding a pair of shades that fit. But not to worry, Bikershades is the expert when it comes to fitting frames. Bikershades has been selling biker glasses for more than 2 decades, so we’ve fitted nearly every head size and shape. Unlike daily casual glasses, riding glasses fit according to your head or helmet size. Another important feature is how your nose is shaped. Is your nose smaller, larger, or average? Is your nose lower, higher or flatter? So, the combination of helmet size and nose shape will be very helpful.

Bikershades makes it even easier for you with our Try Before You Buy Prescription Frames program.

We also offer the darkest Transitions on the planet today, the Transitions® XtrActive as well as the Transitions® Vantage. The Vantage polarizes while it darkens. So if you are sensitive to glare from mirrors, bumpers, windows or water, polarized lenses are an excellent choice for you.
Bikershades Specializes in Wrap Frames Designed for Motorcycle Riding
In order to block out wind, sun and debris from all angles, it is necessary to wear motorcycle glasses with a frame. These wrap frames feature a base 8 to base 10 curvature lens compared to a base 2 or base 4 curvature lens for casual daily glasses. High wrap frames require special machinery such as sophisticated MEI Edgers to cut the lenses.
Most optometrists and optical shops do not service wrap frames because they lack the expertise and correct machinery to cut the lenses. Flat lenses for casual frames are simple to cut. High wrap lenses are more complex and require years of specialized training.
A rule of thumb for cutting lenses for wrap frames to remember is: the stronger your prescription, the more limitations you will encounter. Yes, nearly ALL powers can be cut into wrap frames no matter how strong your Rx is, but it won’t make sense if you can’t see. Higher power lenses are thicker, and your field of vision will decrease if the lab uses the incorrect lens technology. You don’t want to be stuck with a pair of expensive prescription sunglasses you can’t see out of. The opticians at Bikershades.com are trained to determine maximum prescription powers allowed for every pair of sunglasses. We know when to use Digital Lenses, when to recommend high index lenses, and which frames to use. So, we will tell you up front if your prescription can or can’t be done. If we cut lenses that you can’t see out of, we lose time and money.
