I love the glasses. I can easily read my Karoo now and clearly see my map without having to stop and put on glasses! I love the clarity of the lens and they reduce sun glare very well. The case is really because it is impact resistant too.

Somewhat Disappointing


Reviewed By: Charlie Gable on 11/14/22

The reason I rate these a 3 is because the lenses are not large enough to provide satisfactory protection from the wind as I ride. Everything else is great: the frames, lenses, readers, etc. But the first time I wore them riding down a hill at modest speed (it was a chilly day) and glanced down at my cycle computer, my eyes filled with tears and I was unable to read the display. I don't have this issue with other sunglasses that have larger lenses. I am hopeful that the sunglasses will perform better in warmer (summer) weather.

Finally, a solution to counter fuzzy closeup vision

My closeup vision has been fuzzy for years, so when I tried these sunglasses with optical magnification for the first time, I was amazed how crisp my Garmin display really is! These work without causing any sacrifice in optical quality and UV filtration. Great option for folks who can see far, but cannot focus on tasks closer than arm’s length!

Solved a long time problem for me

Contact lenses necessitate eye protection when I ride, but also result in far-nearsightedness (that is, can't read things up close). These sunglasses fix the problem. The small discs with magnification at the bottom of each lens is perfect for reading a map, looking at a cell phone or wrist-watch. Also good sun and wind protection. If there was a clear version for riding at night, I'd get them, too. Highly recommended!

Light, sturdy, aero

Looking into full Rx lenses for cycling glasses - $600 and up! These XX2i glasses at less than $80? That’s a no-brainer. They are light, sturdy, comfortable and fit well, with good air flow for no-fogging. The reader portion is perfect for checking Speedo or maps. This is a winner.
