Photochromic lenses are game-changing. Thanks to ocular wizardry beyond our feeble comprehension, photochromic lens tints adapt to varying light conditions. What does this mean? It means that one lens works on both bluebird and overcast days. It means that you can quit worrying about which lens to use or which goggles to rock. And while ditching interchangeable lenses also means less hassle, unfortunately, goggles with photochromic lenses are often just as pricey as premium goggles with interchangeable lens systems. This, dear reader, is where Glade’s Adapt comes in. Priced at a more than reasonable $110 (not including Active Junky Cash Back!), the Adapt offers excellent optical quality, the latest photochromic tech, and a comfortable, flexy, and stylish TPU frame that fits well with most helmets.
When you’re riding in and out of shaded terrain, photochromic lenses aren’t ideal because the tint doesn’t react instantaneously. Note: this is more of a gripe with photochromic lenses in general than with Glade’s Adapt.
“These goggles are chameleons—they work on low vis days and bright sunny days alike. I’m a big fan of the reflective blue tint when the sun comes out!”
