Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these glasses after my last crash broke my helmet in 4 places (Yes, I'm finally ok after months!) So I purchased a Smith helmet and saw that these fit into the helmet upside down, pretty cool option so I bought them...

I'll have to give the glasses a 10/10. Mine came with 3 lenses, clear, medium gray and the Ignitor (? I think, red lens) darker lens. I've got a massive head and they fit me well ,no movement while riding and I've probably got 3,000 miles with these glasses so far. You forget they are on your head. Lightweight. The only time that I've had them fog up was at a traffic light or something when I stopped moving but quickly cleared up at the least bit of breeze when you start moving again.

If I had a complaint, it would be that they don't really stay on the helmet very well. I've put them up there and as long as you are only walking around it's fine, but they will fall off on bumps while riding. I rarely leave them up there while riding so it's not really an issue but thought it might help you make a decision. I'd buy them again in a second because on the ride, they are great. Nice case too, which holds all three lenses and the soft cleaning cloth and that fits nicely in my upside down helmet in my cycling bag...

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Well, they are socks. And they are warm. And comfortable. And fit correctly (I'm a size 47 shoe, XXL fits good). Uh, let's see, they look good too? That's pretty much it in a nutshell. Wool, comfy, good quality, yep, they work great!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had been looking for a Speedplay specific shoe and a friend had bought the 271's (? or whatever the lower version of this shoe is) several months ago and loved it. So when these popped up on sale, I pulled the trigger. Placed them in the oven and ran through the custom fitting process. Actually did it 3 times to get it 'right'.

The first ride I developed a small hot spot on my left foot, but strangely enough, this went away after several rides. Now maybe 10 long rides in, and I don't even know they are on my foot. Couldn't be happier. To me, the measure of a great cycling shoe is when it simply disappears. Power transfer feels great, boa system is great. A++

Sizing: I'm a large 12, so occasionally depending on the shoe, I'll wear a size 13 US. I bought the 47's and they are a great fit, if that helps anyone. Overall, highly recommend. I love them.
