At e-rudy.com you can use the code: 2alpha

It wont work on their package deals for spare lenses or helmets, but it knocks the price down to a reasonable level. No, I dont work for Rudy, just like their stuff.

They have a good choice of lenses for mtb. Their racing red and photochromic clear are nice.

Their lens replacement program is good too. $20 and send you old lenses to them and you get a new set! Considering I was paying $75 a set for my Smith lenses (Photochromic Polarized), it's a deal.

For the price of the glasses mfg defects should be covered and with local service. I have broken Rudy frames with just basic usage. Most recently the Zyon pair failed. CS has been less than satisfactory as well.

Only positive is that they are better than Oakley. For example a small part on a pair of X-metal glasses failed dropping the lens. Called Oakley for a replacement part only to discover the glasses have been discontinued without any further support. They did offer me $80 off any pair of X-metal shades as a condolence. WTF a 2 cent part breaks without any further support and all they can offer is $80 off a pair of $300+ glasses.

From here on out find a cheap pair of safety sun glasses and buy 2-3 pairs that fit for $20 and be done with it.

I dropped Oakley because of a similar issue. I could not get an arm for my M frames. I had to send the glasses in with a check for like $30. Then, they would put the arm on and charge me the difference. I had to pay shipping both ways!!!!!! total bs................ I went to Smith and Rudy project. Rudy's polarized lenses are great and don't make LCD screens look like some bad rainbow dream,:D
