Can you use snow goggles for mountain biking?

Save your snowboard goggles for snow, cheap mtb/moto goggles for bikes. Snow goggle lenses need to deal with a lot more glare- snow helmets don’t have brims and sunlight bounces of snow. Clear, cheap goggles (uv blocking) are fine for bikes, even in Colorado bike parks.

What should I look for in mountain biking glasses?

A good pair of glasses should only touch your nose and your head just behind the ears. You want to look for a rubber nose piece with a bit of adjustability built-in, and the ear stocks should have plenty of length, but shouldn’t be so long they interfere with the retention system on your helmet.

How do I protect my glasses when cycling?

The best cycling glasses reduce glare, filter out 99 to 100% of UV rays, provide visual protection, are comfortable and lightweight, stay in place on the face and do not distort colors. We recommend wrap-style frames to protect your eyes from wind and debris. These offer more coverage and tend to stay in place better.
