I love these Bislett cycling photochromic sunglasses. I'd been searching online for a pair of photochromic sunglasses for weeks but could only find them priced at £80 or above. Then someone suggested I try Decathlon and, sure enough, I found what I was looking for at a bargain price of less than £30. Brilliant.
Very comfortable to wear. Tint changes quickly.
These glasses are good, very lightweight and clear with the photochromic lenses.
There was a downside and that is where the lenses fit into the frame there is a securing clip (although not detachable), this has worn quite quickly on one side and the lenses now droop down a little on the right side of the glasses.
Clips securing to frame became loose.
Glasses are great. Bear in mind that the tint does not go completely clear so, although useful in low light conditions, they are not suitable in very poor / night time visiblitiy
Light weight, comfortable
Limited tint range
These are nice looking glasses at a good price for photochromatic lenses. The effect is slight, but still useful for riding in conditions of mixed brightness. On dull days, clear or yellow lenses would be a better choice
Unfortunately these cracked the first time I dropped them. The plastic is obviously not strong enough for their application
Nice design, lightweight
I have double checked on our French sister site as they have lots of feedback on these glasses (over 80 reviews). Though the overall review is very good there are a couple of people who have had problems with the arms of the glasses, but nothing regarding the lenses so I have worry in recommending an exchange.
The Bislett sunglasses come with a 2 year guarantee against defect so you are more than welcome exchange the glasses for a new pair or a refund if you prefer.

excellent for variable sunlight in the uk
very light , comfortable , great under a helmet,
I'm so pleased I bought these glasses. They work really well in really bright sunlight but aren't too dark when the sun goes behind a cloud. What has impressed me the most with them is that whilst cycling I get very hot and sweaty so when I stop the glasses start to steam up but the second I begin cycling again they instantly de-mist. I recently wore them on a 50 miles ride and they were so comfortable I hardly knew I'd got them on.
Good fit, comfortable.
Well I have had these for several years and I wear them for cycling everyday, 365 days a year. I came off two days ago and face planted at around 20 mph and these glasses looked like they saved my eyes. The glasses haven't broken and have abrasions all over them. Ill get another pair as not only are they excellent lightweight glasses for riding they perform when you really need kit to perform well.
Can be a tad dark in low light
Got these at the bargain price of £19.99 in store!! The lenses worked well on rides when the weather is variable. Probably not quite dark enough for really sunny days. Vented lens stops any misting really well. Very lightweight. For medium to large faces and has adjustable nose pads.
Overall a great buy...
Stylish, lightweight, good lens
decathlon lenses are great quality at a modest price. the photochromic surface is excellent for use in all weathers. larege wraparound lenses keep the grit and dust out (unlike some of the other decath cycling/running glasses). come with hard case which helps, but plastic frame and arms and tiny hinge area look too vulnerable to me. Time will tell, but nice while/if they last
excellent decath lens, photo great for all weather
frail plastic arms and hinge - will they last?
