Strengths:    Good fit, lenses provide clear optics, lightweight

Weaknesses:    No amber lenses

Bottom Line:   
I've use these for both road and mountain biking and never had the loose lens issue mentioned by the previous posters. The lenses fit quite snug and the glasses fit very comfortably. My one complaint is that when you buy multi-lens glasses, it should come with clear, amber, and dark lenses. The came with dark gray (very dark), dark blue (lighter, but too dark for overcast days), and clear. No amber lenses are available to purchase either. Bummer, otherwise a good pair of glasses.

Strengths:    It fits well on my small nosed, wide cheek boned face b/c unlike most multi-lens full framed sunglasses, these have adjustable nose pads. I also really like the AC Red lenses, but I tend to prefer less tint.

Weaknesses:    As the previous reviewer noted, the lenses are not very secure. I've never had them pop out for no reason, but I wouldn't recommend them for activities where they'll get bumped. I got them for driving and walking around, so it's not a problem for me.

Bottom Line:   
Great for hanging out, but not for intense activity.

Strengths:    Cool looking, vented, fits snug, but not enough to make up for weaknesses . . . see next

Weaknesses:    Lenses fall out. I've had people at the LBS put them in, they only fit in one way, they are in correctly . . . but alas they still fall out. That's all you need to know.

Bottom Line:   
Keep your receipt so you can return. Better yet, go with something else.

Project Sub Kilo 27.5" wheels

So it has begun. My quest to make a 27.5" clincher wheelset below 1kg. I did this for 26" wheels back in 2009, and now it's time to do it again in a larger size. Since then, hubs and spokes have gotten lighter, and rims stiffer. To reach the goal, I have to wait for a certain rim to become available ... Read More »

FTW Industries Mategua with Brake force One brakes and Kilo fork: a short review

My effort to build the perfect race machine. The frame is made by Frank Wadelton AKA Frank The Welder using a mix of Easton and Columbus tubing. It rides great, but at a race pace it transforms. You almost forget it under your bum. I've had steel and ti rigs which were much smoother when training ... Read More »

German:A Kilo Experiences?

Anyone have experience with this? Even the heaviest of these forks is nearly a pound lighter than a comparable 29er fork from Fox or Rock Shox, plus the reduced stiction, antidive, etc. in these designs. It's pretty darned expensive to import at current exchange rates, but cost aside, I'm wond ... Read More »
