experience with rudy projects?collegiateryder

Hey guys,

our team is sponsored by rudy project and ive been told we get good deals so i was wondering what peoples experience with their frame and lense quality has been. i know they sponser baden cooke, virenque and Ullrich so they have to be at least on par with oakley, but oakley has pretty poor frame quality from what i hear so i dont want to have to deal with that on a pair of sunglasses that are $100.

thanks in advance

Rudys are the best, just as good as oakley, if not better, but that of course is personal preference on how they fit your face. Quality wise, some may say Rudys are better.

can't go wrong with any of their stuff

I wear glasses and got an insert for mine. With the Rudys the prescription insert is close enough to the eyes to have your eyelashes rub on them. I just bridge them out on my nose a hair or so just past the eyelash rub and figure the eyelashes will eventually wear back.
I don't shave my legs and I won't trim my eyelashes, besides my legs aren't that hairy and my eyelashes are not really long.

Been using the Kerosene for a year now. Well made and not fragile (crappy) like Oakleys. I have the prescription inserts and have been pleased with them. Like the ability to change lenses for conditions. If you are only getting one lense color initially I would recommend the Racing Red which will get you through most conditions.

If you are surfing the team website be sure to look at the tactical eyewear. Picked up a pair of Rydon Tactical for my son and these are ligther than the Kerosene and seem to be made just as well. If you get them in the Tactical section they come with two lenses, smoke and clear.

I like 'em enough to have bought 2 sets (also on a sponsored team): a set of Kerosene's and a set of Ekynox. Great adjustability, good quality lenses. Second recommendation on the racing red.

I've got the Rydons and I love them. They are very well made and hold up to my abuse. I'm very hard on sunglasses for some reason and they have never broken or scratched.

Love them. Their glasses are very adjustable and well made. Optics are top notch. Can't go wrong with Rudy Project. The RB3's are very versatile with the flip up lenses.
Rudys are solid. Another vote for racing red lenses (nm)outofthesaddle

I'm on my third pair of Kerosenes. Lost the other two pairs, but liked them Keros so much I just bought another pair. Expensive but worth it. I need sunglasses with the adjustable nose bridge thingies, and these Rudy's have them. I also have four sets of lenses - clear, yellow, red, and smoke. They change easily and its like having four sets of glasses. Rudy's lense replacement garantee is nice to. I traded-in a pair of my scratched up lenses and in a couple days had the new pair. The optics are good, but not great, IMO.
good experience hereScot_Gore

I have a pair of Graal FYOLs for almost two years now. Mine are RX, but not inserts. Since they are RX I don't think the lenses or lense material is a Rudy product, but I'll rave about it anyway. The Graal FYOL is a wrap around curved lenses. I was extremely skeptical that they would be able to compensate for my astigmatism. I'm -4.75/+3 and -4.5/+2 in case that means anything to you.

The glasses work great. Correction is spot on and I'm experiencing the best peripheral vision I've ever had with any glasses I've ever owned. I started wearing corrective lenses as a toddler.

Since I ordered RX the money wasn't really an obstacle. They price of an RX sunglass is the same as a pair of RX glasses.

If you need RX I ordered through In-Spex http://www.in-spex.com/home/index.html , which is who should get the credit for the prescription accuracy.

Can't wear them. Their lens make me dizzy. They magnify and distort my vision. No, I don't wear prescription glasses and I never had this problem before with any others. I've tried and returned many pairs. Anyone else have the same problem?

BTW I wear Briko.
