Best pair of frameless I've owned

Superb clarity in all 3 lenses - clear / rose / dark-tinted. The rose lenses are really something I understand where the term 'rose colored glasses' came from....they do make the world a warmer place to live. Rose lenses are good for dawn, dusk or cloudy rides. I had bad experiences with Bolle frameless glasses due to cracking around the nosepiece & earpieces (after the 4th warranty replacement, I quit), so I was hesitant to try these. I've owned the v90max for 2 months, ride daily, and so far nothing ill to report...minimal fogging, ideal coverage for my larger face, very good at blocking the wind so I can focus on the road, complete stability and light weight. So easy to swap lenses, once you get over the worry of snapping the lens or earpieces. Time will tell if lens cracking problems develop, but for now I am very satisfied with the Smith v90max

Responded on

Coming up on a year of use now. One set of lenses has cracked on both sides where the ear pieces attach, but they are still operational & wearable. I have had no other negative issues. I'm going to send the cracked lens back to Smith for warranty replacement (which is lifetime) and see how it goes. I do not regret this purchase in any way
