Race day or any day.
Only recently joining the world of sunglasses, POC seems to be coming into its own based on the design of the Do Blade Raceday. The lightweight grilamid frames are larger than other cycling sunglasses, but their memorable shape is about more than just style — it ensures you’ll have a wide field of vision without any obstruction from the frames that fully surround the lenses. The Racedays feature Carl Zeiss lenses treated with both an anti-fog coating as well as POC’s Ripel coating, which work together to make sure fog, dirt, and sweat roll right off. The lenses are also curved on both axes for a distortion-free view, and they’re designed to increase contrast to help make road obstacles easier to see.
If you feel the need to change your lenses based on the conditions you’re riding in, the sunglasses include a center bar that quickly releases the standard lens for hassle-free swapping. The hydrophilic rubber nosepiece is also adjustable, and POC added rubber inserts at the temples to eliminate slipping when you start to get sweaty. A vent on each included lens helps keep your field of vision fog-free during slow, hot climbs. The sunglasses noticeably widen at the temples in order to perfectly integrate with POC’s Octal helmet, so if you’re using the Octal already, the Do Blade Racedays will complete your kit.

Great. Just watch the auto eject.
I've been rocking the same pair of Oakleys for a few seasons and opted to go for glass with more coverage. These are most certainly that. Not 100% optimal for urban training/commuting since even with the large size, the frame comes down your cheek just far enough to obscure your view when you do the quick glance back for cars. For that reason, the other version of these with a half frame may be a better bet. But in terms of fit, comfort and clarity for a big coconut like me, they are great Also, with thousands of miles on my Oakley, many while perched in the slots of my helmet, they guys ejected without me noticing on only my 3rd ride. Expensive mistake. Buying a new pair, but will keep them on my face or jersey pocket.

Subdued and sharp
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Got the black ones for my son. Very sharp and modern looking without being gaudy. Great design. Got a lighter replacement lens just in case the one included is too dark.
