No problem other than slight fogging if you are riding hard, and then stop for a set of lights or something and it is a cold day, but as soon as you start moving again, they completely clear, they are very well ventilated.

Rudy Kalyos. The lens completely covers your field of vision so you have no annoying gaps where light can get in. The nose bridge is really comfy too.

Have a look at the Cébé Orcal Sunglasses: they're not exactly cheap, but for sure they're cheaper than a pair of M frames, taking into account that you get a box with the glasses and three pairs of lenses.
Liberty Seguros used them some years ago.

Do you have any problems with the Gotha or Vertigo fogging?


I got a Stylus a few months ago which I really became to like and was looking into getting a Vertigo as well some time ago but haven't got one yet. What I really like about the Stylus compared to the Oakleys/Rudy Projects I had is that they are so flexible. When I now wear my Rudy Project again they feel really 'hard' on your head just to begin with. Even the glasses themselves are flexible, which should be safer when you are unlucky and crash on them.
I don't have any problems with them fogging up while riding and can only recommend these glasses. The guy I got these from (thanks again :thumbup:) wanted to get rid of them because they fogged up on him though so I guess it's different for different people.

Can anybody tell me if the Vertigo glasses are as flexible as the Stylus? I know the lenses themselves can be chosen different, but i was thinking about the frame.

I have 3 pairs of Rudy Rydons with multiple lens (racing red is the best), a pair of the new Syluro, and a pair of the maskaraynas. All are great.

Yes, they and the Gotha are as flexible. In fact, when my glasses first arrived, I thought because they were so flexible that they would break, but never had a problem, they are very strong.

Add into the mix: Gotha and Vertigo come in at 22g and 23g respectively!

How did you do that? :shock:

I have damaged 2 pairs now and had to replace them myself, its the only problem I have with Rudy's is the weak coatings on the lenses.

It may only be a North American thing. They call it the "RLG policy". You mail in the damaged lens with a check and your shipping address and new lens show up in 10ish days. They have a lifetime frame thing also.
