BEST FOR: Not looking like you’re trying too hard.

THE TEST: The frames appear to be a standard one-piece, but they swing open for swapping out the lenses. You get two pairs: black iridium and amber for low light. Both offer razor-sharp optics, and between the two you’re optically equipped to cruise or go fast in serious-to-middling brightness.

THE VERDICT: Some true sports necessities—notably, sticky rubber on the frames and temples—go missing on the Style Switches, but they handle moderate exertion and banging around just fine.
