For racing or generally lookin' good on the bike. Currently wearing Spiuk Ventix which are great but still too wide. Has anyone else got a similar predicament?

Any ideas appreciated!

  • i too am blessed (or cursed) with a small swede, for riding i never leave home without my oakley half jackets, if you don't mind them in matt black then get the SI models from here for a bargain:

    For just generally chilling currently we have two pairs of oakley fives squared, white with black iridium and, matt black with grey SI's, depending on the mood.

    How dark are the lenses? I need the eye protection but not light blocking... Still at that price, what the hell!

  • I've got the opposite problem... Anyone know of any brands for wide headed individuals? Preferably on the lower end of the budget if possible...

  • the grey lenses are good enough for most days, the black iridium is a bit darker and better for really bright days, i also have ice iridium (blue) lenses which are great for really bright days.

    i really dislike riding without eye proetection so i also have persimmon and clear lenses to cover every eventuality.

    money well spent in my opinion.

    can anyone tell me if the M frames themselves have changed?

    I have a frame from about 2003/4 with a couple of lenses, but would like a couple more. I see lots of references to 2.0 but the lens pictures themselves look as if they'd fit.

    Can anyone advise me on whether current replacement lenses will fit my old frame please?

  • I have this same problem, fixed it with a pair of Giro Haviks, but still I wish for more slimmer frames and lenses. I also have a bump on my nose from when it was broken which makes most "compact" pairs lenses too small.

    I have a similar problem, went for bolle safety glasses, can't go wrong for the price.

    Here's the thread i started, there are some other useful suggestions

    With Oakleys the only ones I've found to fit me are fives and unknowns (alas I've managed to lose both), the other models are pretty much all too wide for me. Although I have noticed that they have the 'monster pup' which is a smaller version of their 'monster dog' model.
