    Ok I think I’m sold on the Oakley

    So now the question is which model would is best?

    Radar EV and jawbreaker are both well regarded

    Any advice or pointers on how or which to select?

    Order a pair of both? Try on at home and see which fit your head/ helmet best and then return the others.

    I prefer my Radarlocks over my Jawbreakers fit wise, but the Prism lens on the JBs is nicer than the Jade Iridium on my RLs. I think the Radarlock EVs would be my ideal.

    Free capsule case is better though, Imo.

    I think card theft is the least of your worries if you're buying knockoff shades for cycling.... It only takes a stonechipping..

    Not sure that’s quite true but if they are significantly more dangerous than the bendy view decathlon ones I have then fair enough. I regularly ride with no eyewear, contrary to the rules, though I’m getting fed up with bees to the face these days.

    I would like to buy some better cycling glasses. By better I mean clearer, less fogging and good vision when on the drops.
    I had some Endura Marlin glasses that were good but too fragile as they are frameless and snap too easily. The other glasses all come from Decathlon.
    My problem is a very broad nose so most glasses sit too high.
    Are there any Oakley or other “expensive” glasses that could fit on my nose?

    I've read reviews of these saying these fit quite wide, I looked because these guys have them on a great price. Not sure if you have anywhere local to try them on first in the age old 'try in shop, buy online' game

    Oakley Factory Pilots were £48 or £60 for the TdF ones with Iridium lenses at Cheshire Oaks Oakley store the other week.

    I don't wear glasses for everyday use but need them for reading so I wear bifocal sunglasses to read computer. Work a treat. However, you could just get prescription sunglasses and that would do you. More expensive but....
