Optic Nerve Omnium Sunglasses

Great pair of medium budget cycling \ sunglasses. Interchangeable lenses to suit your tastes \ wants. Lightweight design makes you forget your even wearing a pair of shades. The adjustable nose piece allows you to get the best fit possible with a pair of sunglasses. The photomatic lenses are a huge plus too when riding through shaded areas.

However I feel that when I want to change the lenses I will brake the frames before the lenses come out. They are very snug and don't like to come out easy. Yes that's a good thing so your lenses don't pop out while riding but a pain in the rear when you want to changes lenses.

Altogether I love these shades. Once I get the nose piece adj correctly to my nose i'm sure they won't slip any longer and I will like them even more.

The regular price on these bad boys are $49.99. I got mine at 40% off on Black Friday. They ended up being 38ish shipped.

Also they are made right here in the good ol USA! Colorado to be exact.

Very nice, they remind me of my $200 Oakleys but at a fraction of the price. Though I do love the swappable polarized lenses that Oakley has. I may pick up a pair of these because the price is definitely right and they look good too.

You can order all sorts of lens types for them. Mine came with Shiny Black, & Brown. I would like to get the yellow, clear, and photomatic.

Except for the nose-piece area, they look very much like the Tifosi glasses I recently purchased. They are a little more than yours ($69.95) but they also have the interchangeable lens and they are only $15.00 each. I got mine with the photochromatic lens and after using them in early morning light and bright afternoon light, I can tell you that you probably won't be needing other lenses. These go from an almost white to a pretty dark smoke. I picked mine up for $54.00 in the LBS's 20% Off, End of Year Sale.
