Reviewed by Ed from CA on Monday, February 2, 2015Purchased to wear on long bike rides.
Almost retuned due to fit until I understood adjustability built into nose piece. Made simple adjustment and fits great.
Easy to swap out lenses

Verified Buyer Reviewed by DJ road rider from New York on Saturday, August 2, 2014used these for one week climbing and descending in the Pyranees. Rain, sun and mixed conditions. Used all three lenses, very quick and easy to change, but you do get fingerprints on them. Inner and outer surfaces are different, I think you have to be careful cleaning the inner surface. Good optically, keeps wind out of your eyes on fast descents, Excellent coverage looking up from the drops, do not slip on your wet sweaty face.
Reviewed by Derailed Tim from Long Island on Saturday, July 26, 2014It only took one ride to find out how good these sunglasses are! I was looking for a pair of photochromic sunglasses, and these come with the rose colored Ignitor lens. Today's ride started out sunny, but turned cloudy, and finished with some light showers. The photo lens worked great, changing with the changing light conditions. The lens doesn't get really dark, but that's ok with me. Contrast and definition are excellent.
The glasses are very light and comfortable, and the adjustable nosepiece is a plus. Since they're completely frameless the field of vision is unlimited, with excellent wraparound protection. I had no fogging issues on a very humid ride that included some intermittent light showers.
Also included is a clear lens, and a very dark mirror blue lens. I didn't try those, but changing from one lens to another takes less than 30 seconds.
Highly recommended, especially considering the killer Derailed price!.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Will from Texas on Tuesday, July 22, 2014These are definitely quality. I'm not sure that they are the perfect glasses for my face, but of course that is a tall order... ha! So far I have worn them on rides of up to 70 miles and they have performed nicely. I do wish they came with an extra nose piece.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tri Rob from CO on Thursday, June 26, 2014Tiered of that annoying top bar when riding in the aero position? These are awesome. Great visibility and they don't slide down. I haven't experimented with the other lenses, but looking forward to the options on variable days.
