Strengths:    Style, good optics, stay on face, fog and scratch resistant, lens works in all conditions.

Weaknesses:    Lenses fall out easily.

Bottom Line:   
Overalll I like these glasses. Tifosi have come a long way in quality. These are much better glasses than my old Stelvios. A good value as well. Good optics, scratch resistant, fit the face well and stay put, and the gradient lenses are very convenient (no need to change lenses for different conditions). Only drawback is that the lenses fall out easily. I lost one and had to wait over a month for a replacement.

Overall I'd recommend them, just make sure the lenses are in securely before every ride.

Strengths:    Inexpensive. Looks very cool. Great variety of colors to choose from. THREE sets of lenses, super easy to change. Vent to prevent fog-effect. Oakley and Adidas, I'm sorry, but when we are flying downhill, nobody can read glasses' logos/brand.

Weaknesses:    NONE.

Bottom Line:   
Buy these glasses, in fact buy 2 pairs from amazon.com for half the price of the retail price and you'll be set.

Strengths:    Transitional lens goes from clear to sunny protection, super light, never move while riding.

Weaknesses:    need to wear over helmet buckle or else they feel uncomfortable.

Bottom Line:   
I have been using these glasses for over a year now and they are amazing. Never move on face even in fast downhill, bumpy rocks or sweaty climbs. I have the "light to night fototec" lens and it is great! No more switching lenses or guessing one lens for a ride. Lens changes fast and the glasses are super comfortable. Not quite as "helmet friendly" as some other glasses used but if you put the earpieces over the helmet tightening system they work perfect. If you want 1 pair of glasses for any type of light (even night) these glasses are the best. Way cheaper than anything similar on the market as well.
