Product Review: Rudy Project Rydon Frozen Ash with Impactx-2 Photochromic Clear to Laser Brown (hr) Lenses

Rudy Project Rydon Shades

Disclaimer: I received a pair of  Rudy Project Rydon Shades as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to find and write race reviews.

Along with a sneak peak of the film GODSPEED: Race Across America, I also received a nice pair of transitional shades from Rudy Project.  In particular I received the Rydon Frozen Ash shades with Impactx-2 Photochromic Clear to Laser Brown Lenses.  That's a long title and way to say that these shades change color from almost clear to brown letting in as much as 73% light to as little as 17% light when things get sunnier.  

Here's a side by side comparison between Super G Lobbie and I:

They almost look clear on Lobbie, and while not much different on myself in the car, they have tinted a bit more brown.  Now that shading doesn't get really dark, but what's nice about it this time of year is that these glasses perform well in LOW light situations.  Though great for some sunlight as well, these shades with these particular lenses give just enough color to low light, (aka grey landscapes), especially when driving, running, or I would assume cycling, to help make things more defined.  A lot of us have sunglasses for when it gets really sunny, but what we don't often have is a pair of sunglasses that helps or transitions in between partly cloudy and grey landscapes on days when we are out and need a bit more clarity.

In addition to the great lenses on these Rydon shades, the frames along with the lenses are so light.  They are awesome for running or biking.  Also, they are super sporty and cool looking, fitting right in with the sports scene.  They come with a hard impact case as well as a soft case which can also double as a lens cleaner.  Rudy gives a 2 year warranty as well.  You can get these glasses now for 30% off with the code GODSPEED, the movie by Fathom Events that comes out on Tuesday!  Enjoy!
