Panoptx by 7Eye and Wiley-X both have a very impressive eye seal that manages airflow without suffocating the eyes. These are both comfortable for extended periods of time, and both are designed to wick away moisture.

The Motorcycle Sunglasses industry has been dominated by two very strong contenders for several years. Panoptx by 7Eye and Wiley-X both have a very impressive eye seal that manages airflow without suffocating the eyes. These are both comfortable for extended periods of time, and both are designed to wick away moisture. But somehow riders have drastically different opinions about these two brands. Most riders seem to really love one of these brands and they really don’t care for the other. But opinions were split on which of these brands was their favorite.

The preference of one brand over the other seemed to be more a function of frame construction than just the eye seal. The Wiley X glasses are more flexible and easily the shape needed to fit in tight helmets. The Panoptx glasses have an obviously durable construction that lasts for years, or decades.

Motorcycle Prescription Sunglasses are a bigger investment, so selecting the most comfortable model is even more important. ADS Sports Eyewear offers a Try Before You Buy option for these riders that allows them to compare these different options in the comfort of their own home before deciding which pair to have made with their prescription. Shoppers are under no obligation to buy when they use this service.

Two motorcycle sunglasses brands that did not do as well are Pacific Coast and Bobster. These brands are much less expensive, and for good reason. These eye seals do not breathe as well, so the skin can feel clammy after extended wear. And the vented portions do not have a foam filter, so air enters the goggle at full speed and is more likely to dry out the eyes.

One other brand has a new type of motorcycle sunglasses that has done extremely well. These have a new type of eye seal construction and the lenses are easily interchangeable. But ADS Sports Eyewear is contractually restricted from publishing their name without prior approval. This model can be found in the top left corner of both ADS Sports Eyewear motorcycle sunglasses pages.
