Strengths:    Photochromic Lenses,Venting,Comfort,Look

Weaknesses:    Photochromatic lenses should change to clear at low light levels.

Bottom Line:   
I love these shades. On my first trail ride I stopped for a moment and they fogged up but cleared immediately within 2 pedal strokes. The venting really works. They are very comfortable and stay firmly in place. The only improvement I would suggest for this product is a little more photochromic action. I regularly use these glasses for shaded trail riding and some night riding and would like to see the photochromic lenses change to clear at low light levels. They seem pretty good at the other end of the spectrum at high light levels.

With these glasses on you look like a BIKER not a TOURIST.

Date Reviewed: January 8, 2008

Strengths:    This review is for the Photochromic version.

Adjustable no-slip nose bridge pads, great for Asian noses
Light adjusting lenses
Even dark enough for skiing
More than fair value at $60 retail

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I've always considered glasses a disposable item and didn't want to pay insane prices for more established brands. However, as a contact lens and eyeglass wearer, I could see the quality difference between high end and entry level shades.

Even if I paid retail for these, I wouldn't feel too pissed off if they were scratched, mutilated, or lost in the pursuit of glory.
