|Crews Rubicon - For $10 these glasses can not be|
beat for Ironman triathlons and cycling
With that being said, there is nothing more frustrating than buying a new pair of $250 sunglasses only to scratch them, sit on them, or lose them cycling. To make matters worse, most cycling sunglasses are not designed for triathlon and time trials because they have rims and those rims block your field of vision when you are in the aero position.
As a result of the problems with traditional cycling sunglasses, I went on a search for the perfect sunglasses that met my own triathlon and cycling needs. Those needs included:
- Full protection from UV rays and impact
- Rimless design that you can see out the tops of and remain in the aero position with your head tucked and your eyeballs straight forward

My Honorable Mention Sunglass
- Stylish + bonus if the brand is not easily identifiable
Over the years I have gone thru a few versions of glasses but it wasn't until this spring I finally found a version that meets all my needs. That sunglass is none other than the Crews Rubicon.

If you don't like the idea of the Rubicons and still want a recommendation for a pair of sunglasses that meets all my criteria except for price then look to either the Tifosi Podium or Smith Optics Pivlock V2.
