    Time for new shades… Looking for impact-resistant perscription sport sunglasses. Any recommendations? Wiley-X? Oakley? If the latter… Half jackets, Jawbones, Radarlocks?

    Since I ride the road to the Don, then into the forest, and ride until it gets dark, I’m thinking photocromatic transition lenses (clear/smoke or VR50) are probably my best bet.

    I just pulled the trigger on some Flak Jackets in persimmon. But I’m still wondering if anyone has any firsthand experience with Oakley Transitions? Do they lighten up enough in the forest and at dusk?

    I’ve also learned Oakley has new lenses out specifically for mountain biking: Prism Trail. (Unfortunately they aren’t available in Rx yet)

    Too bad I didn’t see this in March.

    I got a pair of prescription Wiley-X Romer-II from optics planet say… 8 or 9 years ago for safety glass use. Fit well, good coverage, the prescription was just as it should be, and they looked good. A few years later I got Lasik, and $20 put a pair of non prescription shade lenses in them.

    For anyone else who might find it useful since you already bought them, If you need to choose ONE shade of lens for all around use, an orangeish tint would be my suggestion. I have an interchangeable set of glasses, and while clear is best at night and gray tint in sunlight, the orange ones work well enough in everything.

    You can get prescription lenses into just about anything these days. I have a pair of Rayban full on sunglasses for road riding, and a pair with the Transitions brand photo chromatic lenses. I recently had new lenses put in to update my prescription. I noticed that they get darker and change much quicker than the previous lenses. I find they work well for trail riding in all light conditions. I have been doing this for years now and maybe I am really used to it.
