Strengths:    Excellent distortion-free optics. Great fit. Non slip on nose. Adjustable arm angle. Look cool.

Weaknesses:    Price. Poor case.

Bottom Line:   
Only the black gloss ones were subtle enough for my taste. I have three lenses: LST Trail, Orange & clear. All do an excellent job. Least fogging shades I've owned & clear very quickly when you get moving again. Easy lens change. For the price it ought to come with a better case which holds several lenses properly, not a normal case which you have to stuff everything in.

Strengths:    good fit, good eye protection, prescription insert good (as long as it isn't wet!!)

Weaknesses:    lenses scratch easily, fogging between outer lens and prescription insert cannot be cleard with air flow, quality of everything apart from the prescription insert is a bit ropey.

Bottom Line:   
I actually own a pair of adidas 'Jasper' glasses which I bought in 2004, but I believe the points below are applicable to the full range and any potential buyers should be aware of these short comings...

1. The prescription insert cannot be used in humid conditions - you will get condensation between the 2 lenses and you cannot get enough airflow between the lenses to clear it. My tip is to loose the outers in this case.

2. I found that the outer lenses have little or no scratch resistance - after just a couple of weeks they are scratched on the inside where the prescription insert rests against them. I also have scratches on the outside where I have wiped mud off them during a race.

3. Servicability was good for the first 3 years of life, but spare parts seem to be no longer available. A tiny bit of plastic has chipped off the arm such that it won't stay attached to the main part of the frame any longer. They are written off.

Throw-away products with planned obsolesence should be cheap. Expensive products should be have a long, servicable life time. If you want the worst of both worlds, these are the glasses for you!!

Date Reviewed: October 4, 2006

Strengths:    Lightweight, fit, quality, resists fogging, zero distortion

Weaknesses:    Too pretty

Bottom Line:   
These glasses are amazing. I owned the older gen Evil Eyes and wore them to destruction....which took quite a bit of abuse. The quality of these is second to none, distortion is not an issue and the fit is superb. I lust for no other pair of shades.
