Details

  • 100% protection from UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful, high-energy light to 400nm
  • Photochromic lenses respond quickly and reliably to light conditions, transitioning through a wide range from light to dark and improving the recognition of some colors by 20%
  • antiFOG lenses have a military-grade hydrophilic layer that absorbs and disperses water vapor, greatly reducing condensation on the surface; never requires reapplication
  • Decentered lenses eliminate the distortion that contributes to eye fatigue
  • Scratch-resistant coating increases the innate durability of the NXT lenses
  • Convert frames from an inverted semi-rim to conventional shield glasses by removing the bottom frame
  • Frameless top expands your field of vision and allows humidity to escape
  • Grilamid® TR90 frames are flexible, durable and lightweight
  • Adjustable hydrophilic nose pads and temple tips resist slipping
  • Frame fits best on medium-large faces; weighs 32g

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best glasses for road cycling in variable light I have been a long term fan of Ryder glasses for cycling because of their photochromic line of lenses. Until the FYRE series of lenses came out I was left with having to take two glasses on rides over 4 hours, especially if I started in the pre-dawn hours. I originally had the Ryders Nimby which was great from early to mid-morning rides, but just didn't calm the midday, high UV light here in Colorado. Then I got the FYRE Roam Yellow-Brown in the hopes of having only one pair of glasses for long rides. They have performed absolutely wonderfully. I am blue-eyed and hence more sensitive to the light intensity than darker-eyed folks. These are my observations and experience. PROS: 1. Excellent field of coverage (100% when riding on the hoods, 95% when in the drops) with good ventilation at all speeds. 2. Excellent clarity across the entire field of view. 3. Excellent ventilation without eye tearing at high speeds (>30 mph). 4. Remarkably consistent tint perception across morning to midday to later afternoon as well as across intermittently cloudy situations. 5. Excellent maintenance of contrast in the shadows at all times. (The part of what you are seeing do not become blacks as with fixed chomatic lenses.) 6. Very lightweight, yet grip firmly enough to not jar off on bumpy road sections. (I have not tried them on gravel.) Nice nose with adjustment to fit very comfortably. 7. When you hit a swarm of insects, you will get them in your ears, nose, mouth, and helmet, but not your eyes. I have wacked some bees and other hard-shelled insects while going 25+ mph, and there is no chip in the outer coating. 8. 90% of the rain hitting the outer coating is indeed repelled without leaving rain spots. There are a few, but they do not obstruct vision and are easily removed with the microfiber cloth provided as a glasses cover. CONS: 1. I have noted that dried streaks of sweat on the inner lining of the lens seem to be a bit harder to remove. I does not come off easily with breath vapor and the mircofiber cover. I have to use water to remove it. It does come off and restores a pristine lens, but it was more work than other lenses I have owned. 2. This is not the best lens set for pre-dawn riding. But once the sun comes up, these perform superbly. In the most intense midday, high UV, cloudless day here in Colorado, they could be about 1/2 stop darker, but still do not distract from riding. I have owned Oakley's and Smith's in the same price range, and I have to recommend these without question because of their flexibility in lighting situations and the quality of lenses in wet and dry conditions. I have now used these for 1 month and over 300 miles, and highly recommend them.
