When on my bikes, I always wear the eye protection that is best suited for my motorbike choice of the day and riding conditions at the time of the ride. I typically carry 1- 2 extra pairs of glasses in my saddlebags at all times as riding conditions can change at a moments notice.
For the past 20 years or so, I’ve been wearing the PAN-OPTIX brand of protective motorcycle glasses and, have been satisfied with both the comfort and protection afforded.
Then in September 2015, I was contacted by the PR Pro for LibertySport.com. She wanted to know if I would put their latest protective eyewear to the test. They would add my eye prescription to the glasses for free and send me on down the road with my eyes protected, total vision clarity and looking good she confidently declared.
“Pursuit”…shiny black frame with rose amber tint lenses.
My test prescription glasses, the Pursuit Model, were fitted with Liberty’s Sunset Driver Lenses with rose amber tint. I received them back in mid-October and have been wearing them for the past 1,000 miles. I’ve been testing this eyewear riding my Indian Chieftain, with its Flare Windshield protection, and while fighting wind through the ape hangers of my Victory High-Ball.
Fashion statement matters. Real protection matters more.
As a serious motorcycle rider, my choice of eyewear is important. I insist on wearing the very best riding glasses available to protect my eyes from wind, dust, flying particles and the sun’s piercing rays. I must say the the sturdy magnetic eyecups that are a part of the Pursuit Model offer good protection against wind penetration regardless of ride choice or riding conditions. Now, for coolness factor, you can easily remove the eyecups for a cleaner pool-side look.
The fit, the feel and the function.
The modern design of the Pursuit model tested provides superior air flow. I noticed that the pierced front design helped minimize fogging. Have a look at the specs in the image below. We are talking real attention to manufacturing detail here.
Note the head hugging, comfortably tight temple design.
Liberty Sport’s exclusive manufacturing process and unique styling really adds to frame comfort and offers a nice cool-looking factor too. Note the eyecups on each corner of the glasses below. As noted earlier, these custom-fit magnetic eyecups are easily removed for a more casual, fashion look.
UV Protection matters. Choosing the right eye protection counts!
When riding and in the outdoors as much as I am, gear quality and protection value is always top of mind. Ultraviolet protection lenses for example, keep UV radiation from the sun from injuring your eyes. Your understanding this ultraviolet rays stuff can literally save your eyes.
Click here to learn about UVAs, UVBs and UVC sun rays…these are the sun rays that penetrate and injure your eyes if you are not wearing the right type of eyewear protection when participating in outdoor activity. This is especially true when in sunny, high-wind conditions typical of many motorcycle rides.

The Bottom Line
You are getting your money’s worth with this company’s protective eyewear. They are clearly designed for speed and riding “pursuits”. The frames come with Liberty Sport Sunset Driver premium performance sun lenses offering one of the clearest lens I’ve ever put on. Prescriptions for these glasses are available through your Optical Retailer or at www.libertysport.com
Yes, this is a quality product. It is worthy of my consideration and respect…the Liberty Sport glasses are that good. They are easily converted from road ready sunglasses to high performance fashion statements in seconds by simply removing the magnetic sidecups. Great engineering design. They are now part of my protective eyewear inventory.
