Good quality functional shades, ideal for larger faces
Scottish kit wizards Endura are already well known for their well-priced and functional clothing. The Shark glasses live up to that reputation well: they're good quality, versatile eyewear for the money.
They’re a single lens, wraparound design, which means that you get good protection from the wind and the elements. Sizing is generous, ideal if you have a wide face and the (vented) nosepieces are both soft and adjustable. Despite the face hugging shape they don’t get foggy on the climbs, although the weather right now isn’t exactly balmy. Comfort levels are very good, with no nasty pinching anywhere.
They come with a hard case, pouch and three lens (clear, yellow and smoke) so you’ll be covered for all weathers. Having said that, the styling is a bit plain and the one piece lens can be tricky to remove from the frame until you get the knack (pull them from the middle). Happily the pouch doubles as a wipe, which you’ll need to get all the fingerprints off afterwards.
