I need new shades and have a wide head. The glasses review section does not seem to help much. As there is not much available locally I'll probable be looking online. Any suggestions on type? I'm leaning toward Bolle, I like the optics.

I have the same problem. I settled on Oakley M frames, great optics. I used Bolle before the Oakley's. and they were great.

with their customer service dept. I purchased a pair of replacement lenses at a local sporting goods shop, only to find out that the shape of the lens had changed since I bought my frames. The news lenses fit my frames but not my face. I e-mailed the company, and received a response from an individual, not "customer service", saying that yes they had changed the lens design, but that she was able to locate a single pair of the old style lens in the color I wanted, and had shipped them out to the address included in e-mail signature. I received the new lenses, at no cost in three days. Now that is great customer service.

I had Bolle's for awhile, but was not happy with them at all...they never seemed to fit correctly, and the tab on the lens, which holds it into the frame, cracked off. And the rubber tore at the end of the frame arms, so I had hard plastic poking me just behind my ear.
I currently have the Briko Sprinter 3, and they're the best riding glasses I've owned. Very good optics, and they have a good amount of contrast. As well as changeable lenses. A year and a half so far (which I'm pretty sure is a record for me), and no problems. Definitely worth the price increase over the Bolle's...

If you really have a big head they have some great glasses.I use the Fluid model for cycling.They are not giving them away, but they sure are comfortable. No problem with fogging and they come standard with 3 lenses. I would suggest trading one of the 3 stock lenses for their yellow lense.

Rudy P Kerosene are very adjustable.... I've lost two pairs and always replace with the same thing. I have a good-size noggin and a wide nose bridge. These are the only glasses I can get to fit really well.
Another vote for Rudy Project Kerosene Premiumoutofthesaddle

I've had for quite a while. Their replacement lens deal is great. Send your scratched lenses and $15 and they send new lenses.
