    Riding in heavy rain recently I had to remove th eglasses because I couldnt see a thing, which defeated the entire object in wearing cycle glasses in the first place. There must be a way to clear the rian off the glasses??

    A cycling cap helps a lot.

    Baseball cap too. You can just about fit your helmet over one.

    Back in my m/cycling days I kept my visor clear by using a piece on chamois that I stitched round the thumb of my glove. I don't bother with my cycling glasses as I avoid continuous rain where I can - I only cycle if the weather is dry or, at worst, showery(an advantage of being retired)!

    theres never any reason to wear glasses in the rain unless their prescription as grit and flys don't fly in the rain, And I've never known the rain to hit my eye, maybe get a visor on your helmet

    Spray them with a polish that has some beeswax in. The rain will then bead and roll off. Or you just turn your head to the side and the wind will blow hte beads off the side.

    Must get that cap.... taking glasses off is a no no for me as I can't see without them..

    You do get used to it, but I tend to slow down a little in pouring rain as well

    You could try using RainX on them, it works on windscreens...

    I'll say it again, just smear the lenses with cat crap.

    Rain x - works real well on my side and rear screens on the car, but not advised on front screen - smears - but on cycling glasses...... 20 mph enough wind to blow the rain off.... probably not ?

    Anyone wish to test ?

    I would have thought shoot wouldn't work too well, being as it is generally opaque?

    I thought Cat Crap was more of an anti-fog thing, very popular with motorbikers and paintballers.

    Ps. did you know that you can also get Cat Crap Lip Balm...

    I think the cat crap also prevents water from sticking to the lenses.
