- Road sun glasses – Oakley or Smith?
I use Oakleys – can’t remember which – with the Road Prizm lens, which is mostly good. But in duller light I swap the lenses to a pair of Trail Prizm, which way better under tree cover and in duller light conditions. Obviously you don’t have to use both, but it does kind of work.Posted 3 months agodavosaurusrexSubscriber
Another not what you asked but if you can find a pair of the Adidas Evil Eye Pro half rim with the Vario lenses for £40 in TK Maxx as per the other thread then you can’t go wrong. I just got a pair and reckon they’ll be great for the road, the quality of the lenses is superb. Think the Varios sell for £75 by themselvesPosted 3 months agow00dsterSubscriber
Another Sungod Pacemaker user here. Had loads of Oakleys, still got some and wearing a pair now. But for the cash the Sungods are a really good alternative.Posted 3 months ago
Oakley wise I have the EZero Path with Road Prizm lens, good and I got them at a decent price, but they’re not worth double the price of the Sungods.steviousMember
– Not my experience. I broke the arm of 1 year old Oakleys, CRC and Oakley weren’t interested
That’s a real shame – did you go via CRC or direct to Oakley? IN my experience wiggle/CRC have been crap at sorting out Oakley warranty stuff. When I broke the arm of my Radar EVs in a crash I contacted oakley direct to try and buy a new arm. They sent me through the warranty system (a bit of a PITA of form-filling) then just sent me a brand new pair.
Back to the OP – no opinion on Smith, but I do have Sungod casual glasses and oakleys on the bike. The sungods are great, but Prizm lenses are genuinely excellent. Remember to make sure that what you get fits well with your helmet!Posted 3 months ago
