Oakley EVZero Range Photochromic cycling glasses review

Hyper-light, light-sensitive sunnies from the masters of eyewear

Replica oakley sunglasses has a highly deserved reputation for its quality of cycling glasses, so when you understand these are touted as its lightest sports performance offerings, it sets you up to expect something special — and it’s safe to say I wasn’t disappointed.

Out of the case they’re incredibly light (weighing in at around 25g), which on the bike translates into a barely-there feel but what’s instantly noticeable is the uninterrupted sight line.

The frameless lens sits high on the nose so that when you dip your head and look slightly up — as you do on a bike — there’s no line cutting across your field of vision.

The sticky rubber on the arms and nosepiece, which goes by the name Unobtainium, holds the glasses securely in place, even if things gets sweaty (in fact, it gets grippier) and that’s not just a good thing when you’re riding hard — these are so light that at certain angles the wind can get behind the lenses and you feel them ‘float’ slightly off your face. They never go anywhere, but it is testament to their impressively lightweight performance.

The lens quality is superb and distortion-free but best of all — and probably the game-changer — is that, quite simply, these glasses don’t steam up.

Combine that with the improved field of vision and can-hardly-feel-them-on-your-face performance and that makes them an investment worth making.

The Radar Pace has what Intel and cheap oakley sunglasses call a dual-initiative system, which, in layman’s terms, means that either you or the device can start a conversation. You can ask the Pace how you’re doing or it can tell you, without any prompts and after some time, how to improve your progress. And in case you interrupt each other, the Pace will cache your questions while it’s speaking and get back to you after it finishes what it had to say.

During my demo, cheap oakley sunglasses’ rep asked a slew of questions about his pace and cadence while running on a treadmill. The device told him that his stride rate was 85, and then, when he asked how good that was, it told him he needed to speed up and hit 88. All this in a calm, Siri-like voice that, let’s be real, isn’t nearly as motivating as a gruff, buff trainer yelling, “FASTER!” Still, it’s nice to know how you’re doing as you’re running so you can correct your technique during the workout rather than try to fix it afterward.
