Why transitioning lenses?

Posted by Josh on

Transitioning lenses are EXTREMELY beneficial for bikers especially, as they offer the darkness of a sun-glass lens for riding during the day, as well as the benefits of having a clear lens for night time riding. All of our Transitions lenses are inspected and tested before we ship them out. As well, our lab ONLY uses the Official Transitions™ brand. You no longer have to keep multiple pairs of glasses or goggles, or swap lenses between day and night riding. Can you imagine having ONE complete, versatile pair of glasses that will give you the style, protection, and visibility you need for all riding conditions!? With today's technology, that's now possible... Here at bikershades.com we offer three different variations of Transitions™ lenses. One of them is sure to fit your needs!
