Very cool shades with a futuristic high-tech look. You have to have the face and attitude to match the glasses for them to really work for you though. But if you have it, these glasses will amplify it.
To sum it up, I love these glasses for casual rides, driving or the beach but, I wouldn't wear them for serious 2 wheeled play.
The Juliets have wrap around lenses who's curves sit snug to your face. The shape blocks light's entry to protect your eyes from glare, direct light and angled light. The lense quality is impressive to say the least. They have a steep curve to them to accomplish the face molded appearance yet there is no visible distortion to your view. Also the deep curves of the lenses allow these shades to be one of the few to not obscure any of your view due to the frame wrap.
The lenses I tested were the Black Iridium, one of Oakley's darker tints. They might be a bit too dark for broad application but they are perfect for bright days, intense sun or use in or around snow. In these instances, you have maximal blockage of light while definition and clarity is maintained.
The X-Metal's frame is where these glasses both soar and sink. The frame style is where the real attitude comes from. They are sharp to look at, and unique in design. But the frame material is metal so, they are fairly heavy. They hardly fade from your perception. Because of the weight they sit heavily on your nose. They are solid and tough, probably more so then necessary. One saving grace in the battle for comfort is that the frames are meant to flex to fit your face.
