Gear Pick of the Week: Nike MAX Transitions

Nike MAX Transitions, £195

James says: Now the weather has picked up, it's time to think about your summer eyewear. When you do, consider the new Nike MAX Transitions. Just like your favourite tee, these sunnies are the crucial piece of kit to make your summer running or cycling go without a squint.

Nike Vision and Transitions Optical have teamed up to offer this summer essential. The Nike MAX Transitions sunglasses automatically adapt to changing light (they darken and lighten depending on the brightness of outdoor light), so your eyes don’t need to work as hard. They're ideal for the British summer clouds and even better for the offroad fanatic who gets their kicks out of bounding around in the forest.

Nike MAX Transitions sunglasses feature two patented lens tints, engineered to enhance the visual details of the environment of the sport you’re participating in. The OUTDOOR TINT is a green colour perfect for trail running, cycling and hiking, it brightens shadows and increases contrast (there is also a GOLF TINT available). The glasses are rigid and most importantly lightweight.

When you're whizzing through a tunnel and emerge on the other other side to bright light, these lens come in to their own and although they cost a pretty penny, it'll be money well spent.
