Rudy Kalyos...
and a pic of me in them (red lenses) because I never believe in how cool shades look in a catalog, they always look much different on a face!



Okay, how about this? I really like these glasses, best Rudy's I've had (I've owned 5 now) and I think they look the best to boot :wink:

i just got some kalyos a couple of days ago. i got the photocromatic red lenses. They go from pink to dark purple depending on the lighting conditions. I really like how flexible they are. you can bend them a lot and they still don't get messed up.

yeah, I also have a pair of photo chromatic, polarized impact X lenses. Best lenses I've ever owned.

Actually, to promote Rudy just a little bit more, I own a pair of Maskerynas which broke. Because they are a one piece lens and the lens is "structural", a new set will simply set me back the $15 fee for the lens replacement guarantee! Not bad

I'm a firm believer in Oakley Racing Jackets. Great coverage, especially if you want full frames. And you can get'm with Transitions.


I have a pair of the white in transition and the black with polarized lenses.

Also, if you want the Nike glasses cheap, http://www.mikevaughancycles.co.uk/prod ... m5b0s191p0

I dont spend a lot of money on my sunglasses as they always break or get lost. My new Cratoni Speedblade arrived today, not used it yet but should be interesting.

I spoke to an Oakley rep in Solvang and he said the Radars are being released to the public on 3/1 and will be in the $200 range. I tried them on and they are a lot lighter than they look. The lenses are incredible too.

I've given into the temptation to get some proper poser sunglasses....of course, the best model is the most hard to find & that worn by italian style guru/cycling legend Cipo - the zeroRH Gothas.

However, all I can find are somewhat out of date website & an ebay shop that doesn't have them in pimping white. Can anyone give recommendations?

Maybe not the best bling bling (although my Ti's are pretty shiny), but definitely my favourites at the moment: Specialized Arc.

I have tried lots of different shades. I found Rudy Freeons's to offer the best look for my head, and excellent vision for cycling. Relatively cheap as well.

I am very pleased with my Rudy's but alas my eyes are getting bad. Has anyone had prescription lenses (not inserts) made? Can this be done on any lense? My current lenses change with the light (important on eary morning rides) and I prefer to use the same style. Thanks

I use Briko Endure Klip because these have clipons for optical lenses.

I don't use cycling specific glasses. The best lenses by far that I have used are Serengeti. They are expensive, but the clarity's exceptional.

I've ordered Rx lenses from them for my new Rudy Rydon's. It will be awhile before I get them, but I'll let you know what I think after I've had a chance to check them out. (And maybe again after a biking trip to FL in February.)
