Did anyone go see Godspeed? As part of getting a preview of the film, I also was sent a pair of Rydon sunglasses manufactured by The Rudy Project, one of the sponsors of the cyclists featured in the film.
The Rydon sunglasses feature photochromic lenses. Photochromic lenses are those that darken in response to light. The crazy thing to me about these sunglasses is that your view doesn't change in response to this. When I opened the box, the lenses were completely clear...as in, they looked like a pair of regular glasses, not SUNglasses. The first time I went outside with them on, I thought that they didn't work until my husband told me, "It looks like you are wearing sunglasses". What you see is so crisp compared to my other sunglasses! (You can check out their lens simulator on the website to get a feel for what it's like and check out other benefits of running with photochromic lenses.)

Have you ever had photochromic lenses?
