Strengths:    they hold the head incredibly well. i've worn them in the ocean, while riding, and everywhere else i go, and the only time they've budged, i hit so hard i shattered my spleen. even then, they didn't fall off my face, only went crooked. side vents keep fogging away when moving, and the adaptalite tint shifting is really handy for transitioning from sunlight to shade and back to sunlight.

Weaknesses:    little darker in direct sunlight would be nice. some fogging when stopped and very sweaty, or when conditions are extremely humid.

Bottom Line:   
i love these glasses. kinda pricey, but i work at a shop, so they're totally worth it to me. if i'd never seen them fog, they'd get that fifth overall chili.

Strengths:    nice fit, doesnt slip in action, looks good too.
side venting prevents fogging on uphill climbs. low end light tinting excellent. i ride in the trees alot and the visibility is awesome.

Weaknesses:    although the tinting does work, i wish it would be a little darker in the sun, but then again i havent been squinting. best used when a visor is on your helmet.
the "road formula" has a darker tint, but are just plain ugly. the price is a little hard to swallow. polarized would have been cool.

Bottom Line:   
they look cool and are functional but unless you can find them on sale the price is pretty steep for not being polarized. 2 chilis for the price gouge.
