Oakley Sutro Replacement Lenses

Low-light pink is great

Got the pink (low light) lens for winter riding, and it's superb as expected. I will plan to leave it in pretty much all winter long (as switching between lenses isn't difficult but always seems to come right before a ride, and I'd prefer to be out pedaling). It's *nearly* a clear lens, with some helpful contrast coming from the pink. I've ridden it on gravel into the nighttime, and it was fine, i.e. it doesn't block out so much light that you need to remove them for nighttime riding. I suppose if you were doing only nighttime rides, you'd probably opt for a clear lens, but if it's going to be some daylight and some nighttime, these will do the trick.

Comfortable helmet once I removed the sweat guard

This helmet was extremely uncomfortable out of the box, had to turn around and head home after an hour due to the headache it gave me. The main issue is the sweat guard is really hard material and creates a lot of hot spots. I almost gave up on the helmet but I tried changing the sweat guard to a normal cloth padding from an old helmet and that fixed the issue. It's actually super comfortable and I'm really liking it. Looks good, fairly light, and the grippy glasses holder works well. Think Oakley needs to rethink the sweat guard though.

Best for mtn biking even in full sun

Living in Simi Valley CA (Rocky Peak Trails) it�s a clear choice for me that Trail Torch is the right lens even in full sun. Details: after researching online I determined that either the road lens or the trail torch lens would be the ones I want to look into. Immediately the torch lenses really show contrast and all the subtleties of not only the trails but off to the side in the shadows of the bushes chaparral etc. all at one time. I thought the trail torch would be too bright in full sun so I had thought about having both Road and trail torch. Yesterday I finally got to ride I went out at noon in Southern California with no shade at about 90�. I found out that the trail torch allow me to descend Way faster and way safer. I�m super super sensitive to light and kind of everything for that matter. The difference was remarkable between my naked eye the trail torch and the road. A trail torch allows me to do way more safer this difference was actually kind of huge. If you�re tempted to go Road for mountain biking they will be more like being more in the shade but they just clearly will not allow you to see the subtleties the same And after all were mountain biking not sitting in lawn chair. The trail torches are great technology and with the concern of rattlesnakes off to the side of trails right now not only do these lenses let you see the trail but they let you see into the shadows much more simply. That was kind of a ramble but whatever lol Take the review for what it�s worth. Get the trail torch for safety and Confidence. Final thing to mention I took the trail torch glasses off and was looking at the side of the sandstone cliff that was glaring at me. the trail torches when put back on absolutely do reduce glare so they are functioning as sunglasses still. I found I didn�t really have to squint at all whereas without I definitely did.

OK, but expected better

This helmet had good reviews and I got it on sale - relatively cheap. I thought I'd try a helmet that was originally very expensive. Would it be worth buying a more expensive helmet? For me, the answer is clearly no. It's basically fairly comfortable, but it took a little while for me to get used to the feel. The strap adjustment seems to loosen a little bit every time I ride. I can't figure out why, so I re-adjust every time. (Fortunately, I haven't found out how good the protection actually is.) As I said, it's OK, but I expected this to be better, and I won't buy another.
