Our testing wasn’t very scientific rather it was very simple. We just rode in them a lot! We rode night rights, day rides, long rides, short fast rides, wet rides and early morning foggy rides. Overall these glasses, regardless of the configuration we chose, worked very well and honestly they were hardly noticeable on our face. There was no nose pressure, no slipping, no side pressure nothing.
My preferred configuration surprisingly was the half-frame. Personally I’m a big fan of Oakley Jawbones and Race jackets and initially thought I would really like the full frame however when using the full frame, I felt the overall area of the glasses were a little bit less than the area of my preferred Oakley glasses. This didn’t mean I didn’t like them; I could just tell the difference. However, when I used the half-frame configuration this all changed. I was back in my comfort zone again. They covered the area around my eyes very well. In fact, I’d say they fit me better than my Oakley’s using the half-frame configuration.
My second favorite frame configuration was the shield option. Again I think this was due to my preference of being able to have a larger field of vision when compared to the full frame. The full frame configuration does in fact reduce the field of vision around the lenses primarily because of the full frame plastic itself. It’s simply my preference.
