Rudy Project, Rydon Performance Sunglasses – Product Review
“Disclaimer: I received the Rudy Project Rydon Shades to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!”
Yay, sunglasses!! Years ago I never ran with glasses, however since I have been introduced to glasses that help protect my eyes (especially as a contact lens wearer,) I can’t resist another pair.
For this opportunity with BibRave we were given the Rudy Project Rydon frames. There is quite a selection – seriously I think there are 14 choices on this page. I decided to go with the Frozen Ash frame with the Photochromic lens. The color I received is Lime with the Impactx-2 clear to laser brown lens.
Also included is a hard plastic case and a soft case that doubles to keep the lens clean.
These glasses are featured in the film GODSPEED – The Race Across America. I had the chance to review it! The movie is about a team that cycles across the country. These glasses are put to the test in some wet and rainy conditions.
I run in all conditions, rain or shine. These lenses would be great for those dark cloudy days, yet protect my eyes from drying out, and if the sun came out, I would be prepared too.
These glasses are great for gray, cloudy days. They are also great for hitting the trails where the shade from the trees is too much for your average dark lens. Also, if you have a night race, these are perfect!
However for me, I would have to say this specific lens does not work for me in the sun. It just isn’t dark enough. This is easy to change, the lenses just pop out and you can put in a different choice.
I should also note that in addition to the adjustable nose piece, the side arms or pieces that go over above your ears are adjustable too. You can make them fit your head.
