Has anyone tried out the new Shimano S-Phyre line of sunglasses? The S-Phyre R model has a photochromic lens which I like the sound of. Really light, too.

I've only found one US vendor. Are these more popular elsewhere?

I’ve been using X-version for a while and couldn’t be happier to be honest. I’ve been a long time user of Oakley but after I got my hands on these have not used any other. I have blue version with polarized and also photocromatic lenses. I was mostly on polarized during summer and now on photochromatics.
They fit really well, weight 27g and optics are step above the big O.

Now I just should ditch 5 pairs Oakley’s because I don’t use them anymore.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll have to put these at the top of my list when I need my next pair of sunglasses.
