The result of CFD (computational fluid dynamics) testing, the POC Propel sunglasses introduce the concept of aerodynamic gains to eyewear. Shaped to sit close to the face and to help push air away from the ears, the new sunglasses use a trailing edge on each side of the lens for the effective management of airflow over the shoulders.
The Propel sunglasses feature Clarity lenses to ensure vision is always at its sharpest, and are constructed with a biogrilamid frame. Three sizes of nose bridge are included, so it is easy to find a comfortable and secure fit on most face shapes. The temples are fully adjustable in both length and grip for absolute comfort.

I was looking for sunglasses that could be worn at night with my POC mountain bike helmet, since I use a helmet light on my commute for half of the year. I heard that POC glasses fit well with their helmets. I didnï¿½t realize that road sunglasses donï¿½t necessarily fit with mountain helmets. My POC helmet pushes these glasses down constantly. I ended up wearing a different mountain helmet from a different company and that resolves the issue.
Having said that, these sunglasses are very well made. They came with two interchangeable lenses, so I will use the tinted lenses when I ride in the daylight. They have a large field of vision, which is nice. It took some getting used to having full frames, since my previous glasses had no frame on the bottom of the lenses. But now I donï¿½t notice it any more. These glasses definitely block the wind from drying my eyes out. I also use a mirror that clips on my glasses and that works with these glasses. I definitely recommend these glasses.
POC makes great glasses - period. I have a pair of their "Elicits" that are perhaps the best wind-stoppers on the market. I bought the "Propel" model after I saw Neilson "KOM" Powless and his team from EF/EasyPost wearing them during the first week of the Tour de France (2023) and I thought that they looked pretty damn sharp - in fact the best-looking glasses in the peloton in my opinion. I took them for a 59-mile ride today and I am very happy with my purchase. POC includes a pair of Zeiss clear lenses as well for night riding. POC makes quality products, and I know I will being buying their next pair of glasses that impress me.
I bought these for the ability to keep wind out of my eyes because of how the "aero design" works. They do it far better than the average pair of sunglasses where air circulates back around to the corners of your eyes and dries out contacts. Proof the claimed aero channeling works in the way it's advertised. Unsure if it translates to actual speed but they look and feel fast and my eyes thank me
I have a slightly bigger face than the average cyclist and these fit well proportioned too
