The best eyewear, Rudy Project or Oakley?

I have been riding Oakley eye wear for 14 years and before that Rudy project, I have nothing against Rudy Project eye wear but I far prefer Oakley because I like to see. They are designed for athletes by athletes with safety in mind. Their lenses are far superior, they have a broader range to adapt any face and technology that is light years ahead of their competition in terms of fit when you start sweating, clarity as they don't mist up and also in wet weather where nothing sticks to the lens. It is the eye wear of choice for the MTN Qhubeka cycling team and many many more top athletes around the world. I will not ride a bike without them nor drive a car without them. If I, or any of the team, are in a cycling accident or motor car accident I wont trust any other eye wear to protect my eyes as no other lens can withstand what an Oakley lens can.

 

Do yourselves a favour and go an get a pair, otherwise it is like riding without a helmet on.

what is wrong with the d'arcs?

 

sure you need to change the lenses if you ride at night - but they are much better value for money that rudy or oakley....

I have the Rudy's and Oakley's. Rudy's (Ketium) are supremely adjustable - I have been very happy with them so far EXCEPT - got some sea water on the lenses while fishing over december, didn't tinse them (stupid, I know) and the lenses appear to have been etched by the salt. Have had my Oakleys for almost 10 years (lots of seawater) and never had a problem with the lenses.

 

Will go for the Rudy's (unless you are stupid enough to go fishing instead of riding)....

I use them for MTB and they work great, On the road the frame gets in the way a bit

I had the adidas for a while. Really enjoyed them I must say. Lost them and decided I would have a look at the Rudys this time, just because the photochromatic lens is such a winning idea. I mostly ride road, but when you mtb and the light fades or you go under trees it's a huge bonus that the shades don't have to come off. The Rudy's are superbly comfortable, look great and work great. The adidas made me feel like i had a decent pair of shades, the Rudys feel special, different class. I tried the oakleys in the shop and didn't like the look, lenses were nice (i like brown lenses), but the Rudy's were just skinnier and the phtochromatic lens is the thing...
