N3L Optics Sunglass Gearu Tips for CYCLING

Suggested Sunglasses: Smith Pivlock V2 & V2 Max, Oakley Half Jacket 2.0, Oakley Radarlock Path/Pitch, Oakley Radarlock Edge (New!) and Spy Screw

-          SECURE FIT. If sunglasses do not fit properly, they can’t protect properly. Many sunglasses have rubberized grip points that allow them to stay in place during cycling.

-          IMPACT RESISTANCE. Consider the safety features you may need. Many sunglass materials, such as polycarbonate, are designed to address specific safety concerns such as protecting during impact, shielding from flying debris and improving visibility.

-          HYDROPHOBIC LENSES: An invisible coating easily sheds sweat, rain, sunscreen, skin oils, dirt and dust.


Visit Joey McMorris, N3L Optics Store Manager & Gearu, at the Chandler Fashion Center to find the right sunglass for YOU. Joey is passionate about sports and is committed to helping athletes find the right eyewear to help them excel and stay focused on the prize.


Phoenix Triathlon Club member was a victim of a hit and run accident.

Shayna Elizabeth


Saturday, June 30th Phoenix Triathlon Club member Shayna Elizabeth (Weitzman) was hit and run while on the Around South Mountain training ride with a small group of friends. Suddenly, a female driver made a left hand turn right in front of Shayna who was traveling between 22-24mph through an intersection with the right-of-way.

Shayna suffered a collapsed lung, separated shoulder, 3 fractures in her pelvis, a broken leg, two broken arms and torn ligaments on her non-broken leg. She was transported by helicopter to St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix.

Now Shayna is facing another surgery...this one on her knee (of the non-broken leg) to repair three torn tendons and a lengthy recovery ahead. With no medical insurance, this single mom could use our help - in praying for her recovery, in providing rides to OT/PT, in delivering healthy meals for recovery, and with financial help from the generous cycling and triathlon communities in Arizona.

The woman who hit Shayna kept on driving, leaving her in the road. She not only left the scene of the crash, but attempted to hide the car behind some bushes in the desert and lit it on fire in an attempt to conceal evidence.

The Gila River Police at the scene of the accident noticed the fire and were able to determine that it was the car that caused the crash. Notifying the owner of the vehicle, the presumed driver was observed to be under the influence but denied being involved in the incident.

This is a complicated case with respect to insurance, criminal and civil proceedings and Shayna does not have medical insurance. Not One More is currently working with Shayna and friends to help arrange support in terms of healthcare coverage, pending meal and ride support and critical financial assistance.

Shayna, our thoughts are with you !

Shayna’s injuries are extensive and recovery will take a considerable amount of time. Shayna needs our help!
