Strengths:    Price, interchangeable lenses, comfort, weight

Weaknesses:    frame finish, Removing/Replacing the lenses is a bit awkward

Bottom Line:   
For 60 bucks, I think these are easily worth that price. I have the gunmetal frame with 3 sets of interchangable lenses, a hard case, pouch. The lenses have held up well, but the finish on the frame has been degrading pretty badly. I don't get any hotspots, and love that they have an adjustable nose piece.

I have to say though that although Tifosi advertises that these fit small to large faces, it isn't quite the case. I have a smaller face, and yes they do fit. However, they look quite big on me.

Strengths:    Relatively cheap compared to some glasses. Come with three pairs of lenses & a case.

Weaknesses:    All lenses distort vision. Long & even short rides will leave you with a headache at the end of the day...

Bottom Line:   
These glasses may appear to be good value a first, but now they've been relegated to the back of the cupboard and will be used for emergencies only.

My old Rudy Project lenses were way better than these. The only problem with the Ridy's is that the frames are brittle - having broke two pars in three years. That said, at least they got used!
