Safety with style.

POC was started with the goal of keeping athletes safe, and their AVIP line applies that goal specifically to road cyclists — all POC products in the AVIP line focus on visibility and protection first, with plenty of POC's striking style added later. The DO Half Blade AVIP Sunglasses are one of the latest additions to the AVIP line, with a half-frame design and high-visibility coloring to help you be seen by motorists wherever your ride takes you.

The frames are constructed with grilamid, a moldable synthetic blend that keeps the frames light while giving them high resistance to impact. Inside the frames sit interchangeable Zeiss lenses, which receive anti-fog treatment to keep your vision clear during steamy midsummer weather, with rubber along the nosepiece and temple ensuring the glasses stay in place while you're in and out of the saddle.

The oversized lenses and absence of a bottom frame work together to improve lower and peripheral vision while you're riding, and the lenses themselves were created to put the road's surface in sharp relief so you can keep a close eye on obstacles without having to look down when you're in traffic or navigating a narrow descent. For days when conditions call for different lenses, you can easily swap out the standard ones, and to really maximize your visibility, pair these sunglasses with POC's Octal AVIP helmet — they fit securely under the helmet at the temples or in the sunglasses garage.

Quality is what you get with POC

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have theses with both the rose and reflective silver lenses. I've never felt the need for more lenses based on light conditions with just the two. They have polarizing looks, but I've always been a fan. Great pair of shades!

Watch out for lens

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Unfortunately you only get two lenses, despite the fact that the tech specs seem to indicate otherwise. Also, there is no truly clear lens. The factory website for the product states that it comes with an "extra clear" lens, but customer service at the NA distributor confirmed they do not make an extra clear lens suitable for dark conditions. The closest they have is for low light conditions. That is the case for all eyewear with POC, not just this product. So as nice as the frames are, don't bother unless you only intend to ride in daylight conditions.
