Strength:

3 interchangable lenses, foam case with clip, easily interchangable.

Weakness:

Clear coating on frame began to peel, adjustable earpieces come out often, rubber nose grip slides down when your skin gets oily.

These sunglasses cost me a whopping $60 ($69 with tax) back in 1997. I used the tinted lens for day time rides, the transparent yellows for night rides and saved the clear lens until 2003. See product weaknesses for its flaws. I then bought another frame from Velotique in Toronto 2003 (a black plastic coloured frame that's not coated) and it came with an additional nose clip + grip. The earpieces stay in place and I use the original 1997 clear lense when I go out for my night bike rides.
Bottom Line: A pretty good buy for sunglasses with a choice of 3 lenses to use & with corrected problems are still used by me 10yrs later. I now have no real complaints about the price.

Strength:

Poor

They look great, but that's not the hole thing. During the first month, they were ok. But, during the summer, they began to break. At first it was the nose pad, then a part of the frame, than one lenses. Hey, I used to do everything that louis garneau told me and it didn't work !!!
They are great if you don't want to pay a lot.

Strength:

3 lenses. Manageable price.

Weakness:

* "paint job" -- the "skin" of the frame started to peel off almost immediately
* fit -- the glasses do not fit as snug as my buddy's Oakleys
* frame weakness -- the detachable "earpiece" is the weakest
spot in the entire construction. It took about 4 months before the left piece broke. Fixed with an adhesive tape. Then the right piece broke while I was riding (and I didn't manage to find it, of course). Not very fun.

I would expect a better pair of glasses. The plastic frame apparently does not hold. 3 lenses are useless if the frame is the first part to break. Consider a more solid construction.

Strength:

-looks real cool
-comes with three kinds of lenses: smoke, see-through and yellow
-good value( 80 bucks canadian)

Weakness:

they fog when you stop during your ride
takes a long time to figure out how to put them on your face right

overall very good glasses, they fog a little when you stop, but hey!
yellow lenses are excellent for riding
the main problem is that one of the lenses had a small imperfection so they didn't clicked in right. check the lenses before you buy em (i fixed mnine with a knife)
for riding in the woods on cloudy days, they beat every oakley i've ridden. the interchangeable lenses is a big plus.cause it's realyy easy to change them and it takes about 30 seconds to do so. i would give 4.5 chilis
