Prescription Sunglasses-Rudy Project RB3/Adidas Evil Eye?(5 posts)

Prescription Sunglasses-Rudy Project RB3/Adidas Evil Eye?rsorganize
Jun 6, 2003 4:05 AM
Looking to get riding sunglasses. My prescription is too strong for in-frame lenses. I like the Rudy Project RB3 - with flip-up and on-frame lenses - and the Adidas Evil Eye with insert. Anyone have any experience with either or both? On the Rudy's, I'm curious about any problems with fogging. On the Adidas, I wonder about the small size of the insert and any problems encountered with peripheral vision.

I have no experience with either glasses.
I do like the zeal optic products.
A company called inspex does a good job with
the rx.
Try the zeal lazors, the sweat gaurd does work.

I have a weak rx, like 1.25 each eye.

Thanks. Spoke to the folks at Zeal, Seabear, and they said that my prescription was too strong. 6.75 in each eye. Really like the RB3s, Mel, though the Adidas seem to have more venting built in. Small lense on the latter still concerns me, though. Thanks for the connection TSE. This is a tough decision. Thanks for the input.

Peace.

For about a month. I've never had fogging on the road but just last Wednesday had some minor fogging while mountain biking. This happened on a long, slow, grinding uphill. The flip up design came in handy. I just flipped them up for a second or two and the fogging was gone. It was really minor, more like a slight haze. It hasn't been real hot and humid yet, so I can't attest to their performance in those conditions. My prescription is also too weird for in frame lenses or inserts with more curvature than the RB3's. I tried the Performance wraps with insert but they wouldn't work, to much wrap on the insert caused too much distortion for my prescription. Otherwise they were pretty nice glasses. The RB3's fit really well, love the adjustable nose piece and bows. You can custom fit them to your face. Never used the Evil Eye.
