When I first obtained the Rydon SX shades, I thought they might be a bit too "Eurotech" for me. Then I tried them on and my wife laughed a bit. Then she asked if I really was going to wear them.

Naturally, I went into the bathroom, slid the 'Euro Looking shades' onto my dome and proceeded to 'strike a pose.' While looking at them in the mirror I felt that this particular model was a wee bit small for my face and, to add insult to injury, the loving wife suggested that if I lost some weight, the glasses might look even better.

Not to be deterred, I make a date with my Rudys and would see for myself how they'd hold up.

LARRY sporting his Rudys

Several weeks went by before I had an opportunity to really give these bad boys a good workout. But, eventually, the day arrived and we hit the pavement for a long day in the saddle.

The shades were really light and comfortable on my grill. I usually wear SMITHS and these were even lighter which I liked.

The lenses were really clear with no distortion. (I have another pair of Rudys that I never wear since they don't sit right on my face and when I ride they distort the road which tends to create a feeling of motion sickness... not a good thing while biking.) But, the new Rydon SX pair that I was testing created no such feelings of sickness. Plus, they were bendable so that I could adjust them to my liking. Another thing I liked about them was that they did not hug my face like the SMITHS. So, they didn't fog up. This is another good thing especially after a long climb. Hitting a west coast descent with foggy shades is a No-No.

They fit well under my helmet and cycling cap.

I would have liked them to be a tad bid bigger but they were very bike worthy and if I wasn't sponsored by BOLLE I'd wear them at the races. I do wear them on training rides though. For everyday wear sunglasses I prefer something a little less radical.

(Ed. Note: The SX designation is for smaller faces, Larry would probably have been better served with the Standard Rydon)
