their opinions

What they think about DRL® lenses

Line has been a member of the French team since 2020 and trains at the Pôle France in Besançon, as well as the Team Pro «CANYON». She shares her feedback: 

  • Line, why do you wear night lenses?  « I suffer from hyperopia which is corrected either by corrective glasses or contact lenses. I needed to stop worrying about this type of equipment not only in my everyday life, but especially in the practice of my sport to feel freer to move. » 
  • How this type of lens is an advantage in your sport?  « Mountain biking is a demanding and somewhat brutal sport that is practiced in all weather conditions and on all types of grounds. I wear sunscreen or neutral glasses, but I was always afraid of getting mud, dust or just losing a lens in transitions and jumps. I no longer have these concerns and my vision is perfectly corrected. » 

Romain has been a member of the French team since 2021 and trains at the Pôle France in Marseille. Here is his experience: 

  • Are these night lenses an asset to you? « Absolutely! I became aware of this at the last 2023 European Championships. In the middle of the second race, I was perfectly positioned, but I lost one of my two lenses that correct my myopia. So, I ended «on one eye! », mid classified. It was not the first time in training or racing that I lost a lens before I learned about night lenses. I was used to wear contact lenses, so I quickly adapted to it. In the practice of my sport but also in amphitheater at school. » 

Clara and Manon form one of the 4 crews of the 49er in the colors of French youth team, of which they have been members since 2024. They also train at the Pôle France in Marseille. 

  • Clara, why did you choose night lenses? « Sailing and especially the sea do not mix well with contact lenses and even less with corrective glasses. We are soaked from head to toe, always marking our competitors, fine tuning our sails, refining our course, and especially perfectly identifying our buoys. Night lenses release this kind of stress to give us accurate vision. » 


  • What about you, Manon?  « I agree with Clara, even though I’m only one-eyed hyperope. No corrective glasses of course because of the splashes of sea water but I wore a single lens with always the risk of losing it. Night lenses have freed me from that fear. »
