Rapid Eyewear's Pro Performance Plus multi-lens prescription sports sunglasses are renowned as being some of the best on the market and yet, despite the inclusion of many accessories as standard, they offer amazing value for money. Our Rx prescription cycling sunglasses will get the job done whatever the conditions, thanks to their interchangeable lens system.

For information on buying this product, and having your prescription fitted, scroll down this page to the section titled 'How to Order.'

Why Are They So Good for Cycling?

Pro Performance Plus prescription sunglasses are perfect for use on the road because they have:

  • Flat side arms making them comfortable under a cycle helmet
  • Interchangeable polarised lenses for different light conditions
  • Yellow Cat 0 lenses for improving contrast in poor light
  • Impact resistant frames and lenses for crash protection
  • 100% UVA / UVB protection

The Frames

Our prescription sunglasses are built around a matt-black finished frame that has a prescription Rx clip housed in the back, whilst the tinted, interchangeable lenses sit on the front. This two-part arrangement allows for great versatility and performance, whilst the wrap-around styling blocks unwanted wind and light encroaching from the sides and bottom of your vision. The Pro-Performance sunglasses look good too, easily matching the style of many non-prescription sport sunglasses designs.

The frames are lightweight and tough, whilst the Rx clip, made from a robust TR90 material, ensures maximum protection for your eyes from impact.The tinted lenses clip onto the top of the frames, allowing them to be flipped up for momentary 'normal' vision when required.

De-Centred and Anti-Scratch Coated Lenses

Wrap-around sunglasses offer great benefits when it comes to blocking unwanted light and wind from the sides of your vision, but placing a curved lens in front of your eyes would normally cause distortion. However, all Rapid Eyewear lens sets are de-centred, which means they are calibrated to remove the distorting effect.

The lenses supplied as standard are:

  • Clear, untinted
  • Category 0 yellow, light-enhancing for dull light
  • Category 2 beige polarised, for fairly bright or changeable light
  • Category 3 polarised grey mirror, for sunny conditions


By filtering blue light, our lenses improve definition and depth perception in your field of view. Polarised lenses remove glare from the road, car windscreens etc. by filtering out horizontal light.

The Package

Pro Performance Plus are supplied with a retainer strap, carry case and cleaning cloth as standard. The case has internal pouches for spare lenses, and belt fixing loops and catches.

How To Order

To add prescription lenses, choose your preferred option from the drop-down menu at the top of this page and fill in the boxes that appear before proceeding to the checkout. Please read through the information below before you proceed.

Is My Prescription Suitable?

Pro Performance Plus sunglasses can be used for any regular prescription where the SPH (Sphere) requirement is less than, or greater than, 4.5. Due to the curvature of the tinted lenses, they will not be suitable for those with very strong prescription requirements that exceed 4.5.

They are also suitable for bi-focal, varifocal and prismatic lenses but please note, we cannot add varifocal or prismatic prescriptions ourselves - please buy the sunglasses only and refer the work to your optician.

PD (Pupillary Distance)

This is the measurement between the centres of your eye pupils, across your regular glasses. Your optician will have measured your PD when you took your eye test, but they do not always provide the information. If you're not sure what your PD is, or your optician will not give it to you (in the UK they are not obliged to), ask someone to measure it by placing a ruler against your regular glasses. Do not take a measurement with the ruler flat against your face because this will provide an incorrect reading.

Most PD's are in the range of 58 - 70mm. Please note that, if your PD is above 69mm, these sunglasses will not be suitable for you.

How Long Does it Take to Make My Prescription?

Turnaround times from date of order is typically 7 - 10 days for UK orders, and a little longer for overseas.

Can You Fit Varifocal or Prismatic Lenses?

Please note that we cannot fit varifocal or prismatic lenses - your optician will be able to help with these requirements.

Choosing Lens Materials

You will notice we offer a choice of prescription lens materials. The standard, cheapest option is C39, which offers adequate safety protection in most situations (remember, you have an impact-resistant polycarbonate tinted lens sitting in front of this). If you want even more protection, select polycarbonate lenses instead. Polycarbonate offers a formidable 'second line' of defence for your eyes in the event of an accident. We highly recommend you choose this option if you intend to use your sunglasses for activities such as shooting, airsoft or skiing.

I Am Not in the UK - Will You Still Add My Prescription?

Yes! Our full prescription service is now available to customers worldwide and there are no extra fees.

Extra Tinted Lenses

If you play golf, you may want to consider adding our green mirror Category 3 lens option from the drop-down menu at the top of this page before completing your purchase.
