My current aero helmet (Giro A2) makes wearing sunglasses a PITA. I can't put on the glasses then the helmet and once the helmet is on it's difficult to get the glasses in over my ears. On top of that, the helmet seems to contribute to the glasses instantly fogging up before I can get any speed to keep them clear.
In light of this, I am contemplating either forgoing the glasses all together (I race sprints primarily) or attaching them somewhere on my bike to try to put on further down the road once my feet are in and I am moving. Any thoughts or opinions on either of these strategies?
My first race in quite some time is on Saturday and figured I would try a new approach to test it out. This race, according to the race director, has a 900 meter climb at 8-9% right out of T2 so the fogging issue will be very real. (BTW - I think the race director has to be wrong - I am betting it's 2-4% and they just add 5% since no one in the Midwest knows what a climb looks like. I guess I'll find out soon enough.)
