For that Extreme Sports Enthusiast - Not Watching but Doing!
Ryders sunglasses and eyewear were born out of a need for a reasonably priced, good looking, high performance line of sunglasses. Brent Martin, founder of Ryders sunglasses for men is the first Canadian Mountain Bike Champion. In 1986 while on the circuit, his desire for a line of sunglasses that he and his friends could wear both while mountain biking and doing any of their other outdoor pursuits got the best of him. With a little encouragement and a clear vision Brent set out to design and manufacture a line of affordable, functional eyewear for the adventure junkie.
Ryders sunglasses are made for heart pumping, gear grinding, mud slinging activities such as mountain biking, trail running, hiking and cycling. Brent and his team have thought of everything to provide you with the best product on the market at a price you can afford. They have taken in to consideration such things as airflow, fit, weight, comfort and style, and they deliver with innovative technology and features you won’t find in the average pair of sunglasses. For example:
Shatterproof lenses – protection from those sticks and stones
TR90 Switzerland thermoplastic frames – this is used in all but the metal frames and provides an unbelievable flexibility and durability, while being light weight.
Hydrophilic anti-slip features – anti-slip nose pads and anti-slip temple tips keep your Ryders sunglasses where they need to be. The material used really shines when it’s wet, performs even better, and after all, that’s when you’re going to need it most.
Adjustable nose pads – these are found on some of their models and can be a lifesaver for the hard to fit face.
N/S18 metal frame technology – N/S18 stands for 18% nickel and silver. All Ryders sunglasses metal frames are made using this technology and are lightweight and durable. Their high strength is a result of the high percentage of nickel. There is also zinc and copper added. Keeping in mind the consumer that may have reactions to certain metals, Ryder takes the time to apply a hypoallergenic polymer coating to all their metal frames.
MTB specific design – MTB designed goggles have been designed from the ground up to properly fit with your MTB helmet, as either MX goggles or snow goggles just don’t cut it.
MTB specific air intakes – MX and snow goggles have vents specific for their uses. Ryders sunglasses goggles take in to account the needs of the mountain biker and the result is proper air flow, which means a cooler face and no fogging up of the goggles.
Hypoallergenic Foam – The back strap of the goggles is made from high density multi layer hypoallergenic foam for both comfort and a tight seal.

Ryders pays attention to every detail and uses the latest technologies to bring you the best product at the best price. Their glasses are both functional and stylish with a wide range of styles and colors to choose from with built in features you didn’t even know you could get in a pair of sunglasses.
