Oakley has a pretty exhausting product launch frequency. It seems every year we are either treated to a new model, or a limited edition (usually a more vented sub-model) in the run-up to the Tour de France. Olympic years are even bigger for the sports eyewear giant, with its products gracing not just the faces of cyclists, but rowers, runners, sprinters, jumpers, throwers… anyone, really. It’s latest model, the Sphaera, is not simply taking aim at the top spot of the list of the best cycling glasses, but it also has to be a good multisport offering too.

I’ve had a set of Sphaeras on the go for a while now, in a Tour de France edition colourway (more on that later). As a pair of cycling glasses, it certainly has its perks, but my view is that, especially at full price, there are better options for the cyclist in the range of Oakley cycling glasses, or from other brands. Still, if you are curious, read on to find out all the highs and lows.
