The Ruling Glass

The new crop of bike-worthy specs.

1. Yup, they're really plaid. Not feeling it? Don't fret: Oakley's polarized Sideways come in eight other color combinations, including a very cool brown-white-and-blue combo. $185; oakley.com

2. The retro shape and prominent temples give Kaenon's Burny an analog look. The ultrasharp polarized lenses, though, are as high-definition as it gets. $229; kaenon.com

3. They might look more Jack Nicholson than Jacques Cousteau. But a water-repellent coating on the lens makes Hobie's polarized Woody glasses ideal for a life aquatic. $120; hobie.com

4. We love the sharp optics and classic style. But the coolest thing about Costa Del Mar's Wingman is that it's customizable¬óthe arms and nosepiece can be tweaked to fit almost any size face. $239; costadelmar.com

5. Giro's Fader comes with prescription-ready frames and stainless-steel hinges. And while it's part of the company's lifestyle line, it can handle a little action, too, thanks to hydrophobic pads at the nose. $90; giro.com

6. Whether Smith's handcrafted and seventies-inspired Nolte is too much of a good thing is probably beside the point. The real question is whether you've got enough mojo to rock them. $119; smithoptics.com
