Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been cycling for years, mostly road, and have exclusively used Oakley sunglasses in one form or another. So of course I try their vented RadarLock Trail Prizm sunglasses when I turned to mountain biking. After a few uses, I felt they were a bit too dark for the trail, and despite being vented, still fogged up. Enter the Smith Attack sunglasses.
I exchanged the Oakley's for the Smith's. I knew you got two pairs of lenses with the Smith's, which includes a ChromaPop Contrast Rose lens, very similar to the Chromapop Smith goggles I use for low light skiing. Wow, what an improvement in light transmission and visibility! And the Contrast Rose still help cut the bright glare of the sun when I was in open field. And despite not being vented, these sunglasses fogged up less than the vented Oakleys! I am so impressed, I want to buy a pair for my son if Smith can do these in prescription form. Here's hoping. I recently purchased a Smith helmet and of course, the fit with these sunglasses is fantastic!
Great sunglasses, and the magnetic Pivlock is literally a snap to use. No instructions necessary. The only con I can think of is the case. I found you do have to take the arms off to store in the included case, and the arms do bounce around in the case, too. Would've been nicer if you could just leave the arms on folded. But that's a relatively small nit for such a great pair of glasses! Highly recommended!
