Yes we learn to love it but apart from looking fast feeling fast, it's just great being in shape, healthy and confident.
Top Gun paved the way for genre-specific shades and now roadies, mtb'ers and triathletes each have their own look, both on and off the bike/run. Hipsters wear sunnies that suit their beards, roadies match Sagan wears and very often form is more important than function. Many brands have many models and colours, to suit the occasion, the outfit and the weather.
Details like anti fog, helmet clasps, socket grip, nose fit and even anti-sweat are options we can choose from. Which do you find are both cool looking and worthy of selecting for an ultra distance event where weather may well change during the race from foggy dark rain to glaring sunshine.
