Strengths:    looks, durability, multi-sport, nice large size (but can fit smaller heads) everything

Weaknesses:    umm... none... some people say they fog up, but I don't believe them

Bottom Line:   
I am a nordic skier and love these for skiing, but also on the road or trails. They don't fog and they look cool. I have tried other glasses, but always return to my ekynox and I have just ordered my third pair. I have worn them for 3 years since I was 16.

I don't care if they start to become "old school" because they stay on your face, they are versatile and you don't know your even wearing them!

Strengths:    Looks; fit; finish; easy lens change; exceptional optics.

Weaknesses:    You lose some peripheral view as outside of frame around lens blocks it!

Bottom Line:   
I got the USA themed frame w laser blue lenses. Optical quality is outstanding!! Fit/comfort level is great. They look coooool! The downside is extra's(neck strap $20-it's cut out of a piece of neoprene)are expensive!

Strengths:    Great build quality. Stylish. Quick change lenses. Prescription insert compatible.

Weaknesses:    Price should include more than one lense set & extras are expensive. Steer clear of polarized lense coating.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these glasses after breaking a cheap-o pair of Performance glasses. Comfort and optics are great. I like the style as well. Overall, the glasses have been great through 9K miles of training and racing. I have the polarized smoke (came with the frames) and yellow lenses (bought separately). Both are good though the polarized lenses took some getting used to. Sometimes it makes the road surface look wierd or my cyclecomputer readout hard to read. Yellow frames are great for overcast and rainy days. The full frames take away some peripheral vision compared to frameless glasses. Overall though, I'm really happy with the product.
