Harley-Davidson® Women’s Sunglasses and Goggles - Protect the Gift of Sight
We all learned about the human nervous system’s five senses in grammar school: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. Experts say, by far, the most important sense is that of sight. This is true because we perceive up to 80% of all impressions of the world around us by means of our sight. So, does it make sense to protect sight, i.e., your eyes, whatever the cost? You bet it does.
Motorcycling presents its own set of challenges when it comes to the eyes because the exposed face is subject to flying debris. The eyes must be protected! In fact, many U.S. states require eye protection when riding motorcycles. Harley-Davidson® High-performance eyewear, Signature eyewear, and Sunglasses protect the most precious gift of life, our sight.
WisconsinHarley.com carries a large selection of Women’s Eyewear and Sunglasses that are designed to protect your eyes under any condition. Not just to keep the elements out of your eyes, but to also provide 100% protection against UVA/UVB radiation. Our selections of colored lenses help maximize your ability to see in a variety of light conditions, too. If you’re riding in fog use yellow lenses to improve clarity; Purple, blue, or gradient lenses are ideal for defining contours and reducing glare; Red and pink lenses provide improved depth perception and contrast; Grey lenses are best for general wear and light reduction. There are a variety of frame styles available too, along with your favorite H-D® logos at the temple or written on the arms. Look for our shatterproof sunglasses, which are ANSI Z87 rated for high velocity impact as well as high mass impact. We carry scratch resistant lenses, too. Unique Harley-Davidson® styles include readers, aviators, and more.

Sizing your Sunglasses
This topic can really get complicated. It’s best not to over-think it. Basically, there are three numbers involved in sizing glasses, for example, 66-16-125. Numbers are in millimeters. The first number is the lens width, and this varies with the style of sunglasses. The middle number is the nose bridge width, that part of rests over the nose. This is very important because if it is too narrow for your bridge, the glasses will be uncomfortable. If too wide, they will tend to slip down. The last number, always the largest of the three, is the temple arm length, measured from the hinge to the back of the ear. Most references indicate that sunglasses that are within +/- 3mm of your actual measure will fit fine.
