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.


Most companies’ new products are conceived in the boardroom, often mere clones of successful products designed by others. At Nathan, our product development labs are the terrain we constantly strive to conquer.

Nathan’s chief athlete/scientist is company president, Jon Reichlin. A hardcore endurance athlete who recently completed the legendary Escape from Alcatraz triathlon, Jon does whatever it takes to ensure that every Nathan product performs perfectly during the gut-wrenching realities of pushing the limits of human performance. To help achieve his goal, Jon reunited one of the toughest and most respected product design and testing duos in the endurance sports world.

Bryce Thatcher, who founded Ultimate Direction and invented the water bottle pack, now spearheads product design and development for Nathan. Bryce is a two-time second- team All-American cross-country skier, an adventure racer and a speed climbing maniac. In fact, he still claims the fastest time (3 hours, 6 minutes) for the Grand Teton ascent/descent! Over the years, Bryce’s background in exercise physiology and biomechanics has led to many patented features and designs, and even to entirely new product categories.
Our top priority is making products that help you achieve your goals, no matter how impossible they may seem. You can't do that without a healthy dose of invention. You'll find innovations like these in every product we make.
