MSRP : $100.00


Product Description

Our first dual-lens eyewear with interchangeable lenses, this chameleon lets you adapt instantly to any light condition. When the sun fades or flares, switch to a new set of optional lenses and change your entire point of view. Accented with true metal icons, the lightweight O Matter® frame includes Unobtainium® earsocks and grip anchors. The open-edge design extends your vertical field of vision, and each set of optional lenses retains the peripheral clarity of XYZ Optics®.

Strengths:    Great looks

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Great glasses, always have to have a pair of Oakley's; however for cycling I resorted to Tifosi's because I didn't want to ruin the expensive Oakley's (which usually just sit on my hat when I play golf).

Amazing optics
Comfortable


Weaknesses:    Slightly fog if you are cranking up a hill and then stop, but no big deal it goes away quickly. Expensive but definately worth it.

Strengths:    -transition lenses
-good looking
-maintain shape well and grip to head
-typical oakley quality and class


Weaknesses:    -the lenses fog up anytime I have cranking up a hill causing limited visibility, which is very annoying!!

Bottom Line:   
I am a huge Oakley sunglass fan..being all that I will wear. Oakley delivered on these glasses just like every other pair I have used. They are easy to put on and take off and never seem to lose their grip. I have the VR50 transition lenses which I like very much. They are perfect for cyclists, so that you don't have to change lenses 3 times during a ride.

Strengths:    STYLE! And LOTS of options for lenses.

Weaknesses:    The chrome finish on the frames faded rather quickly, but Oakley's warraty is excellent and they will replace the frames.

Bottom Line:   
Comfortable, lightweight, protective, and STYLISH! These look as good while working on the bike as they do hanging out at the beach! Changing lenses can be a bit tricky at first, but easier with time. I use them with titanium iridium lenses for daytime and hi-intensity yellow for cloudy or late riding.
