Strengths:    Always on sale somewhere, great price for a very good frame and good lenses

Weaknesses:    The ones on sale are usually an unsightly orange

Bottom Line:   
These are the best sunglasses you can buy for under $60. The frame is darn near indestructable, and is very comfortable as it has an adjustable nose piece. The nose piece has a very nice pad on it that helps prevent the sunglasses from slipping down your nose. This is very effective as well as comfortable. Unfortunately, the orange color of the sale ones doesn't go very well with a lot of clothes, but it doesn't matter when you're riding.

One of the lense pairs fits a bit loose, but it has yet to fall out and the others fit snugly. The lenses are very nice, with clear plastic good for dusk riding, very dark ones for the beach or snow, and the excellent all condition red lenses. The AC red lenses let just the right amount of light through on sunny or overcast days, and the red tint increases contrast very well. The red color is also pleasing for long wear.

The lenses are nice and large for near complete vision coverage, but this has caused me another problem. I think that the large unprotected lenses are more prone to getting scratches, smudges, and sweat on them than smaller, fully framed ones. This has caused my AC red lens to become rather irritating to use, after wearing it daily for about 6 months. This is not a big deal considering how much I have used them.

After 6 months use, the frame has slowly warped a little so that it looks a bit crooked when off, but it is so minor that you can't tell when wearing them. My last complaint is that one of the screws has started working its way out and does not want to stay in all the way.

Overall, the sunglasses are amazing for the price and very good anyway. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a good pair of sporting sunglasses at the cheapest price available.

Strengths:    Great riding glasses! These are the best shades I've owned and I've owned quite a few pair. The clarity of the Tifosi lenses is outstanding. The fact that you get 3 sets of lenses for $60 is unbeatable. The nose piece is adjustable to fit your face. Changing the lenses is easy and can be done on the go in about 1-2 minutes.

Weaknesses:    Zero

Bottom Line:   
Greatest value on the market for interchangeable lenses. If you ride and want the versatility of various lenses, seriously check out Tifosi. They are the best deal going.
