I'm a fan of Rudy Project having come from many years of Oakley M frame ownership. I currently own two pairs of Rudy Sportmask sunglasses and have one pair sent back to Rudy for the $24.95 warranty lens replacement as I write this...another temple broke off on my second pair of Sportmask. As Dr. Pete mentioned a couple of years back, these are outstanding sunglasses which are 'fragile'. Both pair of mine have broken and I am careful with my stuff. Unavoidable in other words. Why the Sportmask? Because its rimless (and hence fragile) and it has the best vision in the drops of any glasses I have ridden minimizing neck extension...neck soreness being my Achilles heel btw. So I don't have the run as much neck bend as say compared to Oakleys which have a top frame that blocks some vision up top when in the drops if that makes sense.
All that said, enter the pricey Rudy Hypermask which looks like the brother of and is the replacement to the Sportmask. I asked the Rudy rep on the phone today if the Hypermask is more durable than the now discontinued Sportmask and he said the temple was redesigned and is stronger . He said compared to the Sportmask, he hasn't had as many returns.
So my question to the 41 is, understanding likely very few ride the Hypermask, what is your experience? Any breakage?
