Product Review: Rudy Project Rydon Sunglasses

Product Review:  Rudy Project Rydon Sunglasses

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Rydon sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

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.)

In my house - little to no sunlight 

Outside in sunlight
I like that the sunglasses are very lightweight and I have had zero issues with fogging, even in high heat/high humidity situations like my run yesterday:

Yes...I am still alive
Even in the rain....no fogging!
You can order and switch out a variety of different lenses based on your needs.  I like that the arm of the Rydon is super thin so it doesn't interfere if I wear them with my bike helmet, a running hat, or a combo of those things with my headphones.

You can check out Rydon and other Rudy Project sunglasses on their website.

Have you ever had photochromic lenses?
