Best sunglasses?
 
What sunglasses are the cool kids on those strange bikes without gears wearing these days?

we sell smiths, natives, oakleys, spy's, electrics, maui jims, and i've noticed the natives are the best for bikers. they're a real good pair of athletic sunglasses. all of them are polarized, all have interchangable lenses for different light conditions, the warranty is unbeatable, they're light and real good for cycling especially.

the nose pads are made of a rubber/plastic that specifically gets to the temperature of the skin it's contacting (your nose bridge) and sticks. i've sold a few pairs and people tell me they never EVAR comeslide down or come off.

i, on the other hand, rock these

Safety glasses for construction, they look like normal sunglasses, obviously they are impact resistant, and they can be had for sub $2 a pair

Works well for people like me who destroy or lose glasses on a regular basis.

I love my Natives. Amazing clarity and lack of glare, and so light and comfortable. Only problem is they make me look like I should be in a Mountain Dew commercial.

I've got a pair of Native Nano-2's and I won't wear any other shades. Wide frame and very large coverage, partial wrap-around lenses. He's not kidding about them not slipping, either. I sweat alot, and I've never had these slip.
All the lenses aren't polarized, though. Most of the darker and mirror-finish ones are, but the yellow and orange lenses (and obviously the clear ones, duh) are not polarized.

tx_what_it_do 04-24-08 10:28 AM

we sat through a native clinic lol that's why i know so much..
but yea the extra lens kits that come with it aren't polarized, but at least each set comes with polarized lenses.

and i sat through the oakley clinic too. they put all their oakleys through these tests, like the light diversion test (they point two laser pointers at a spot on the wall, then put the sunglasses over them and if the lasers move it means light bends too much, causing eye strain to correct it) and yea THEIR oakleys passed their light tests and clarity tests, but when my coworker asked to test HIS out (he bought them at the brand new oakley store at the same mall we work at a week prior) they failed all the tests. the guy tried to say that's what happens with lots of use, well 180 dollar polarized flak jackets shouldn't ****ing fail after a week.

but yea natives have that wraparound style to them that i can't wear because my face is round and i'll look like a bug or something.

Group Buy?

Good infoz here...

I use Ryder's right now, scratched the **** out of my orange lense though, which I'm pissed about - as the sunglass/darker lense is a bit too dark at night sometimes, and I like having the glare taken off which I don't have with the clear lense.

Sub ten dollar gas station glasses only.

Aviators.

You are dangerous Maverick.

NitroPye 04-24-08 05:03 PM

Cheapest biggest mirrored aviators I can get at the gas station.

Great for keeping **** out of my eyes. Great for blinding on coming traffic. Great with the ladies.

belt drive anyone?

and i think aviators are pretty sweet.

I just broke my 4 year old pair of Maui Jim Typhoons. It's quite an emotional time for me. I'm also going through a divorce, but the difference is that I will actually MISS my Maui Jims.

Seems like all the MJs anymore are for people with smaller faces/heads than me. I'll check out the Native line. For now, I bought a cheap-ish pair of polarized sunglasses.

Hey, we could group buy those ones for $2.70 if we just get 60 of us!
