Have any of you used the Specialized sunglasses with the lenses that get lighter or darker depending on the light conditions? How well do they work?

I've been using them since spring, little bit of fogging during extreme conditions (high humidity in summer, wearing a balaclava in winter, mostly while standing) but no worse than any others, other than that, highly recommend. I used them last Sat in NH ,grey & overcast 27 degrees, seems to make darker days brighter

Tifosi have models that do the same thing for less than half the price. I haven't used them, but do have two pairs of their other sunglasses and am impressed with lense quality and comfort. A more relaxed style to Specialized racer look. Just throwing this out there. Good luck.

I have a set of the MTB variety. They have worked great for me on the trail. They fit well and do not move around on my face. When I use them on the road, the tint is not quite dark enough (the road versions have darker tints).

Who makes the glasses for Specialized? They don't make their own bikes so they sure as hell aren't going to make sunglasses.
