After cycling, running, trail running, hiking, or snowshoeing daily over the course of two months, constantly swapping out and comparing more than a dozen brands and some 40 models of sunglasses, we believe that the Ryders Seventh with photochromic yellow lenses represents the best choice for eye protection in a wide range of activities, and at a great price. The Seventh deftly changes the amount of light it allows to pass through depending on light conditions, while always providing windshield-like protection and sharp contrast. We found this model to be extraordinarily versatile.
