POC Do Half Blade Clarity AVIP Sunglasses were £195, now £115.99

POC has a style all of its own and the clean finish on the Do Half Blade is matched by the quality optics and exceptional head comfort. The half frame design allows minimal distractions and the Carl Zeiss lens is built for the road, coming with a road specific tint that will work with the contrasts found across long stretches of tarmac.
Bollé Shifter were £99, now £72
There’s a reason the Bollé Shifter made it on to our Editor’s Choice in 2019. Super comfy, superb grip and great optics. Okay, this version has a standard lens rather than the more expensive Phantom photochromic but it still offers most of the package at less than half the price.

Oakley EV Zero Blades Sunglasses were £166, now £114
Read more: Oakley EV Zero review
Like the distraction free, frameless design but want something a little different? The Blade has a slightly rounder shape when compared with the traditional EV Zero, and of course you get the same quality lenses.
Tifosi Crit Fototec were £74.99, now £59.99
One of the most highly regarded sets of eyewear we have recently reviewed. The Tifosi Crit features a photochromic lens that adjusts rapidly to changing light conditions. Our tester gave this verdict, ‘At less than £75, the Tifosi Crit sunglasses are fantastic. Not only do they fit and feel comfortable, but they offer exceptional clarity and are one of the swiftest changing light sensitive lens on the market.’
Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm Sunglasses were £175, now £115
Read more: Oakley Jawbreaker review
The Jawbreakers are also very good frames, offering good coverage and decent fit for those with wider faces, and the Prizm lenses are excellent in a range of conditions.
100% S3 HiPER was £179.99, now from £149.99
Read: 100% S3 review
Another superb set of glasses, and also to be found on our Editor’s Choice 2019 list. Our tester rated the S3 as ‘the larger 100% S3 lens offers almost limitless vision, superb protection and has a great fit – even for skinny faces.’
Oakley Sutro sunglasses were £152, now £99.99
Read more: Oakley Sutro glasses review
The Oakley Sutro glasses are some of the largest that the American brand make – and at £99.99 they’re an absolute bargain. The enormous frames and lens offers great protection and vision but due to their size we’ve found them to be better suited to those with wider heads. Available in multiple colours.
Oakley Flight Jacket Ignite Prizm Road were £185, now £139.99
Read more: Oakley Flight Jacket review
The brow-less design and adjustable nose bridge allows the glasses to remain cool and vent well. These particular models come with a polarised lens that’s better for bright or different light conditions – like when you’re riding through tree cover.
Oakley Field Jacket Road Prizm were £185, now from £80
The Field Jacket is one of Oakley’s latest models and takes the technology found on the Flight Jacket and blends it with a more casual dual lens design. An adjustable nose bridge pushes the glasses away from your face when stopped to reduce fogging and Oakley’s excellent road Prizm lens aids definition in bright conditions.
