Bottom Line:

Date Reviewed: October 16, 2010

Strengths:    Great fit, great ventilation. I really like the lens quality and optics.

Weaknesses:    One of the armpieces broke and it is impossible to get a replacement. Tried Adidas and their distributor, my local shop, no dice.

Bottom Line:   
Great pair of riding glasses, but are very expensive for what you are getting. Oakley seems to have better customer service in my opinion- any time I ever had an issue with Oakleys breaking, I was able to get a replacement or earpiece, lens etc no problem. Just something to be wary of when you are shelling out $200 for a pair of plastic sunglasses.

Strengths:    Good looking,fit good on head,you can set position on nose and side as well,all parts repleceable,good medium colour of the lenses(not too dark),not sweating so much when riding...

Weaknesses:    f#cking expensive...I've paid around 200usd in our shop,because I really liked them.After some time I broke one bend-no problem I replaced it(no probs with parts),but on third time I broke this bend and lost also one side-block with it.New one costs ~75usd.For that price I have new glasses...Next think-lens get scratched very soon,so after some time i had ice ring from my lens.

Bottom Line:   
They're good glasses,but for price what I paid in shop I would expect higher quality of lenses and stiffer "bend"(broke it 3 times).I will never buy such a expensive glasses,I use to damage or lost them in some time...Now I have some from Blizzard and they're great(paid ~35usd).So middle rating just for price od glasses and parts.

Date Reviewed: July 24, 2007

Strengths:    1) Really good look and fit.
2) The frame is stiff and ligth.
3) LST coating is very good (i have no problems with coating since i've been using them for 3 month only. i don't know)
4) Good Adidas service and variety of lens colors (i'm using LST Gold-Silver and orange-red in the dark)
5) Lens quality is really Austrian!

Weaknesses:    1) The lens is not polarized.
2) If not properly inserted (it's your problem :-)) -> lens may jump out of the frame (never had this kind of problem)
3) When looking down and riding a lot in the summer day -> sweat may drip to the inner side of the lens (the sweat keeper/ protector helps a bit).
4) Price is too big.

Bottom Line:   
Just go to your local Adidas shop and buy it!

Strengths:    cool looks, great fit with the nose pad adjustments, cool colors and various lenses

Weaknesses:    lens coating

Bottom Line:   
The coating on the lens came off after a rinse in tap water after 6 months use. I seldom used the glasses and kept them in their hard case. contacted adidas HQ in austria and the int'l sales rep immediately responded with a free replacement!! I have always loved adidas products and now even more with their great support!! The local distributor was lame as a duck! Thx ADIDAS HQ!!

Date Reviewed: June 4, 2007

Strengths:    Lightweight
Easly changing lens
Adjustable nose and head fit
Dismountable parts
Really anti fog and anti sweat lenses.
Good amount od different lens to change.

Weaknesses:    The area covered by the lens is not as big as you may wish, either for orizont to the range covered from left to right.

Lens need good cleaning and care to endure more than a year.

Bottom Line:   
This are a really good sunglasses for MTB, great frame, Lightweight, durable, and sort of variety in lenses, the bottom line will be that they do not have an Oakley optics (Iridium), but still rocks.

Little overpriced.

Submitted by eauxgod from PC,MS,US

Date Reviewed: July 7, 2006

Strengths:    Design
The lenses are great until they become opaque with scratches and coating delamination

Weaknesses:    Lens coating is short lived, but replacement lens are cheap if you know were to look.

As of late, the nose bridge will not stay in place b/c the tab that holds it in place is broken on one side.

Bottom Line:   
Way too much $$ at retail prices. The lens coating WILL scratch no matter what and insect repellant will instantly destroy the coating as well.
