He has agreed to do a review on Ryder's sunglasses, which looked pretty cool and arrived in a really cute little pouch case thingy (I love it when that happens!)
So please stand by for the musings and stylings of Evan O. and his review of the Ryder's Swerve Pro Sunglasses (and kindly hold your applause till the end.)
The first thing I noticed when I picked up the Swerve Pro sunglasses from Ryder was how light they were and the solid construction of the frame. There are small gaps between the lenses and the frame which struck me as odd but I’ll address that later.
I put the glasses on and they were quite comfortable. I put the sunglasses to the test on a 40 mile bike/ 3 mile run workout.
I set out on my ride at 7am and as the sun rose ahead of me, the glasses did an excellent job of reducing the glare of the oncoming light. I was also really impressed with the clarity of detail when using these, which is indicative of high quality optics. The lenses are photochromatic which means as the light levels increase the lenses become darker which is also a plus.
After riding for about an hour I discovered that the small gaps between the lenses and the frame help circulate air behind the lens which led to no fogging of the lens and helped dry up any sweat that got on the lenses.
When I transitioned from the bike to the run the glasses were very stable on my head as I ran. Not too tight, the fit was just right.
Bottom line, the Swerve Pro is an excellent set of sunglasses for training on the bike or the run. If you feel the need to dial in the fit, Ryders offers other models that have all of the features of the Swerve Pro with the additional benefit of adjustable nose pads and temple tips.

*cue applause* I love him. He's so official, isn't he? So cute! That's my engineer, not missing any details!
Well now to the good part, I GOT A PAIR HERE FOR A LUCKY WINNER! They're a little different from his, the pair we're giving away are the "Lolite" model and here are the specs:
anti-slip nose pads
gray polycarbonate lenses
100% UV protection
designed for outside sports
I love them and I am jealous. They're a little more girlie and by that I mean big, but I'm pretty sure they're still unisex and they also come with a little pouch-case-y thing too.
