Stay focused on your ride.

Dual Power Eyewear's SL2 Sunglasses are lightweight, cycling-specific shades with a unique bifocal design. With a discrete magnification zone to the lower section of the lens, the SL2 sunglasses improve your vision of hard-to-read products such as cycling computers, mp3 players, and cell phones, without sacrificing aesthetics or adding weight.

Featuring 8 base lens curvature for an optimum wrap-around fit, a flexible impact-resistant Grilamid TR 90 lightweight frame, and shatterproof and scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses, the SL2 Sunglasses offer 100% protection against UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. The Optimized Magnification Zone (OMZ) reduces distortion and fatigue, and the sculpted non-slip TPR -50A rubber nose piece and arm inserts keep these shades securely on your face.

Tips for choosing a viewing power: To select a viewing power, consider how you will be using your Dual Eyewear. For cycling you might want to consider a magnification that is a bit weaker than what you use to read a book. For example, if you use 2.5 readers at home or at the office, try a 2.0. This drop in strength will not hinder your ability to focus on small text items like your handlebar mounted computer.

I really like these glasses. They are comfortable and have reading correction. I no longer need to carry an extra pair of glasses

If you wear bifocals, these work well for cycling.

I first bought Dual SL2 sunglasses a few years ago when I was having trouble reading the smaller numbers on my bicycle computer and iphone. They are light weight and have good optical quality, but eventually the small wear-and-tear scratches have led me to buy a new pair. Same product. I rarely ride without them.

This is my second pair because I foolishly lost my first. The bifocal lens has been very helpful for reading maps, my phone, my odometer, I use them for driving as well as biking. If your distance vision is reasonable but you need help reading, this is a much less expensive way to go than getting prescription sun glasses. They are not the most comfortable pair underneath my helmet, but very very worth it on sunny days.

These sunglasses are fantastic! They protect my eyes from wind and offer sharp, true colors, plus the tint is not too dark so I can see objects in the shadows. The nose and ear pads keep them from sliding down and the arms are shaped to hold my rear-view mirror perfectly. I can now see my computer in sharp focus and don't have to change glasses to read messages on my phone, menus or cue sheets.

I love these glasses!

I've been waiting for something like this to come along and indeed they work. I normally wear graded lenses and I really can't read without them. Now I can have decent long distance vision through the uncorrected portion of the lens and still look down and read my cyclometer, phone, or map through the bifocal insert. It's a great help. They are probably not the coolest looking or most comfortable pair of sunglasses on the market, but they are the first pair I can really ride and be happy with.

I can't read phone or cue sheets without readers anymore, and these glasses fit well, look good, and last a long time. I've purchased a total of three pair, and use them as general sunglasses, too.

I like these glasses for biking and reading. My wife finds them too hot. This depends on the shape of the face, although a couple of ventilation holes at the top of the lenses might help this drawback.

I like the reading glasses bifocal effect, but not that easy to get used too and the sun and shaddows sometime make reading the cycling computer still very difficult.

Finally, a reasonably priced pair of bifocal sunglasses. These are lightweight, economical, and much simpler than glasses with inserts. These are perfect for clear days when you want to clearly see your cyclometer or cell phone. Strongly recommended.

I like the idea behind these sunglasses, and they work as promised. For those of us who need reading glasses, these are useful in a variety of activities. The price is very reasonable and the fit is excellent. The best news is that they are very light - in fact, the lightest sunglasses I own. The only downside is that the optics are just not as good as the expensive, high quality sunglasses availlable at specialty stores. Given the price, however, I really can't complain.

These glasses are great. I bought them before my 450 mile bike trip and they worked really well. No problems anymore reading my bike computer or a map. When we stopped at a restaurant I could actually see the menu now. They were lightweight and very comfortable. I would recommend them, especially if your reading eyes are getting tired.

Perfect Cycling Sunglasses for Those Who Need Readers

These cycling sunglasses are the perfect solution for those of us that need reading glasses to read. I can now read all the small numbers on my Garmin and yet the small diopter section is invisible for normal sight. They are very light, attractive and a good shade for the sun. I have mine for about 4 months and will not ride with any other glasses.

I LOVE these sunglasses. I purchased my first set of these sunglasses from this site over two years ago - I may even have previously provided a review. I am writing (again) only because a) I was looking here to get my third set and, b) it is MY OPINION ONLY that the reviews focusing on the lenses popping out while cleaning... smell of conflict of interest OR heavy handed handling of the sunglasses ( I don't think of myself as gentle) OR off road use with fat gloves (just a guess).

That being noted, have my lenses EVER loosened while cleaning the salt off the lenses from a hard ride? Yes, but you literally have to bend the frames to get that first pop of the lense - they haven't popped free easily for me even when I want to change from brown to clear (yes, I use dark for daytime and light for dusk or night rides).

I can accept objections to the frames being not stiff enough for some, but I personally love that the frames (arms) are flexible because I tend to have issues with frames on my work readers at the hinges and arms. Either my head is not average size (one way or the other - insert joke of your choice) or I handle my sunglasses poorly and the frames suffer. That issue does not exist for me with this product.

Is this product perfect? No - apparently it doesn't automatically adjust my lenses to reflect my need for greater magnification (thus the need for a third pair of greater magnification) but they do sell lenses of different magnification separately. If you want a great reader at a reasonable price - this is a great choice.

Final disclosure I am not an employee of Dual or any related parent or subsidiary company, nor do I have a pecuniary interest in the entity or any related affiliate, nor am I receiving payment of any fashion in any kind in exchange for this review (I wish I was, then my next pair should be free). Will these work at a very reasonable price for someone who wants a reader - highly probable. -)
