There are 3 different types of sports sunglasses: mountain sports sunglasses (hiking and skiing), water sports sunglasses (sailing, kitesurfing, kayaking) and cycling & running sunglasses.

HIKING AND SKI SUNGLASSES

In the mountains, UV rays are even stronger.  Wraparound sunglasses are more suitable for hiking and ski.

These sunglasses have a curved shape to fit your skull and face shape and to protect your eyes. It is even more important at high altitude, with stronger brightness, reflection on snow, wind, etc

SAILING AND KITESURFING SUNGLASSES

However, the sunglasses can easily drop in the water. Therefore, floating sunglasses are ideal for water sports.
