At a Glance

First impressions of Endura’s popular Mullet riding glasses are of a chunky, hardy piece of riding eyewear with full frames and a mirror-finish lens. Supplied with an equally burly hard case, these represent some of the most affordable light-reactive riding glasses available.

On The Trail

The ‘one lens to rule them all’ Photochromic S boast a 7 second changing time, and out on the trails adapted consistently to changing light conditions, coping with full sunshine alongside the more usual rain, flat grey skies and overcast forest riding. As they stop short of going fully clear you’ll need a different set for night riding and possibly the densest pine forests, but otherwise, these do a great job across a wide range of light levels.

Once on the trail, fogging is tackled with lots of small vents around the lens edge, and as a result is better than most full-frame glasses, only misting up on me a little during slow climbs in humid conditions. Lens coverage is excellent, as the frames are large, wide and wrap well around the temples, giving a broad field of vision that feels less restricted than most frames glasses, albeit not quite up there with half-frame models better suited to racing amongst other riders. Riders with little faces or heads may feel dwarfed by them, as with all eyewear it’s often a matter of taste.

They’re a bulky set of glasses, but at a mere 34 grams on my scales, while the Mullets aren’t light by glasses standards, you do get a really solid feeling, strong and resilient piece of eyewear that can handle much abuse both on and off the bike. Justifying the considerable extra cash needed to save half an ounce over these would be tricky for all but the most dedicated racer!

Distortion is minimal and scratch resistance has so far seemed good, no doubt helped by the lens being inset in the chunky frames to reduce off-the-bike wear and tear. The lenses aren’t replaceable, meaning scratches are likely to be the defining factor in the durability of the Mullets, something they seem to be holding up well against so far. At this price point you don’t get alternative lens options, adjustable nose bridge or choice of frame size, but if they fit you, they’re very tough to beat at any price.

Overall

Available in a vast range of frame colours to suit every taste, and supplied with a solid carry case and lens wipe, these represent excellent value, sturdy photochromic do-it-all riding glasses.
