I know many have had issues w/their sunglasses and the helmet retainer in the back. Anyone had issues w/the helmet putting pressure on the arms of their glasses (pushing the glasses downward which means the nose clip puts a lot of pressure on your nose)?

I am using Tifosi Podium glasses and have no issues w/the retainer; just the side of the helmet pushing down on the arms.

Similar issue for anyone and a pair of glasses that worked? TIA

I have zero issues with my Protone and the Alba Optics I usually wear. My back ups are POC Aspire. No issues there either.

I use Kask (KOO) glasses that fit the Protone perfectly in every way. Definitely worth the investment.

Rudy projects have an issue that can be resolved by bending the straight part that goes behind your ear downwards.

I find that the Protone has some fit issues with Oakleys.. the arms of the glasses get moved by the fit system. i have to push the glasses back occasionaly.

I've also had issues with protone and oakleys
jawbreaker is fine, due to flat and short arms
ev zero has longer fuller arms that overlap the rear cradle.
i either have to live with it being a little loose and going over, or sometimes fit the ends of the arm inside the cradle.
neither is ideal, but glasses are great
