Sunglasses are a big part of modern-day cycling and there is no bigger race than the Tour de France for cycling sunglasses brands to show off their latest designs. While some brands such as Oakley and 100% are easily recognizable, there are many other lesser-known brands, especially for those living outside of Europe.
The riders are usually given a choice of models and designs depending on factors such as if they’re in one of the leaders’ jerseys, weather conditions, or just personal preference.
In 2022, there are 12 sunglasses brands represented at the Tour de France. Scicon has the biggest presence with four teams, followed by 100%, Ekoi, and Oakley with three teams each. All the cycling sunglasses worn by the riders are often available for cycling fans. Depending on the brand, they can cost anywhere from $100 to $400.
