    Cycling Glasses for Asian Face

    Hi,

    I have been having trouble finding cycyling glasses (or any glasses for that matter) that fit well on my round, flatish, small nosed Asian face. Usually, the nose bridge is too short and the lenses rest on my cheeks. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    Try elastics around the back of the head. I think some sports shops sell them - sorry I dont know a brand name.

    Rudy projects, most of them are infinitely adjustable, even for your flat asian face.
    Chuvak has a point but it's a little more expensive than Rudy's.

    Yes ....Rudy Projects have an adjustable nose piece (and ear piece). I have the Rydon and Kerosene models. Also take a look at Native eyewear. I beleive the have about four models that address the problem.

    I'll second the Rudy Project suggestions. I also have a rather flat nose and the sunglasses that don't have adjustable nosepieces such as Oakley M-frames didn't work for me. The Rudy Project Kerosenes I have fit my face perfectly when adjusted.

    I just got my Foakleys M-Frames and they fit me perfect. I'm asian with a short nose, but this sunglasses doesn't move at all, and it fits me perfectly. I also have a big head, but it's giving me no trouble. When I put it on, I don't really feel it.

    Is that an orange peel?
