SH+ is an Italian company that began making products for helmet manufactures and their own SH+ helmets since 1978. SH+ began making other products in 2000 which includes their sports eyewear along with other product lines including ski goggles and ski helmets, in addition to their cycling helmets.
SH+ makes cutting-edge eyewear for cycling at a high level. I’ve had the opportunity to test out a few pairs of the SH+ sunglasses, as did the SoCalCycling.com Team riders.
The SH+ RG 5100 Sport Sunglasses are aggressive styled sunglasses that have a large lens. The vents at top of the lens provide extra ventilation and prevent fogging. The lenses are also easily interchangeable. The SH+ RG 5100 Sport Sunglasses come with three different lenses for any type of light condition for whatever the conditions might be during the ride. My sunglasses are crystal white with laser red, amber and clear lenses.
The SH+ lenses are very large and allow for a large field of view and also add a little extra protection from unwanted road debris.
The lens has an adjustable and removable nose piece that has a grippy nose piece that prevents slipping to keep the lenses in place. The ear tips are also adjustable and flex to allow for a comfortable fit around the ears.
The sides also have interchangeable colored clips that can be changed to match any color combo.
The SH+ RG 5100 Sport Sunglasses comes with a handy case that allows for great protection for additional lenses and also comes with a cleaning cloth to keep the lenses clean for your next ride.
What I really like is the large lens and the clarity of the lenses and field of view. The adjustable nose piece also helps the glasses from slipping down the nose when looking down or around.
The ventilation helps especially when it’s cold or at night to keep the lenses from fogging up.
I think the only thing I would want to see included is an extra nose piece. However, you can purchase that as an added accessory.
The SH+ RG 5100 Sport Sunglasses are great all-around sunglasses with multiple lens options and a large field of view. They provide crisp clear vision when looking out the lens and comes with a pro hard case to keep your SH+ RG 5100 sunglasses and extra lenses protected while traveling.
