These are nice glasses, but I ordered the pair with red lenses, thinking they would give a red tint for contrast. Unfortunately, the red lenses just darken and are not polarized at that. Rudy project, if you read this, please make your red lenses have a red tint like Oakleys do. If these Fotonyk’s did, they’d be my favorite pair of sunglasses. Red increases visibility, and I originally got red lenses for shooting (high contrast between background and target. Once I tried red lenses, I realized they were great to wear at work, biking, and everyday. Also, if I can recommend, add to each pair of lenses what the user will see tint wise. Since that wasn’t there, I was gambling that the red lenses would give me a red tint, but same would go for other colors. Thanks for listening to my rant, but other than that, these are great sunglasses.
Skeptical about inserts over direct Rx lenses, but decided to give RP a try given their history with the design. The insert has been working great and the sunglass has been better than expected. The adjustability of the nosepiece has been outstanding, I only wish this particular model had adjustable temples/temple tips to customize the fit better, especially with certain helmets, and the only reason for the deduction of 1 star. I have usually gone with "O" sport eyewear over the years, but I am now questioning my prior choices. The RP photochromic lenses have been outstanding. Clarity is excellent, venting has been very effective, and the degree and speed of lens darkening blows away anything "O" has to offer. Now I'm looking forward to trying a a pair of RP full shield sport glasses.
These are my go to Mountain and Fatbike glasses. With the photocromatic lenses these are perfect for when gets dark during our rides especially in winter when its dark at 4pm. These also accept my Rx inserts so great when I don't feel like wearing my contacts. Plus they look sweet mated with my Protera helmet.
