Lost my cheapy Merida eyewear in the river on Saturday while cooling down after a killer climb an decent near Kaapse Hoop. Decided it was time for some proper eyewear and would appreciate your opinion on the two choices.Embarrassed

I posted the same question a few weeks ago. The Oakley side was quiet whilst the Rudy side was loud and clear that you will not be disappointed. I am currently trying to find myself a pair at a good price. Unfortunately I cannot support local as they are much more expensive than US and EU.

What would be a fair price on the Rudy Project Rydon Clear Photochromic??

Well RRP is fair, it is just that other sources are willing to take less of a profit. I know CWC sells then for about R1699, but I have seen them on the web for just over R1000 and then there are also deals where you get free lenses and kitbags and helmets and all those things for about R1500 excl shipping. I just need to find a way to get it from those sources as they will not ship ouutside their territory.

Rudy!!! Rydon seems to be the most popular model, but they have a few other frames as cool, like the Noyz, or the newer Genetyk. Whichever way....photochromic clear lenses is the only way forward!

I bought a pair of Rudy Project Rydon Photochromics for R1599. Check out www.bikewear.co.za. Very happy with them.

Best deal - take into account exchange rates and shipping and you wont beat this - plus warranty excanges etc are a lot easier when bought locally
