Why They’re CoolThe temples are made of bendable nylon—think Gumby—that remembers the shape you give it. » Glare is no match for the polarized copper-tint lenses, which yield a brilliantly high-res, high-contrast view. » The look is plenty smart, too, with wide temples plus wide, boxy lenses. » All is glossy with the frames’ dark tortoiseshell—like black having reddish thoughts. The total is more fashionista than alpinista, so ride fast but not too hard.
Hmmm . . .It’s a shame to drop $140 and not get the rubber stickies that would make these full-on performers.
RX-ABLE?Yes, through Kaenon.
