Come on, let’s face it, when you're choosing the correct sunglasses with a super functional, comfortable head fit can be extremely challenging. There are sunglass fit guides and reviews out there but they may only add to the total confusion for most athletes as they try to categorise the face shape and styling of eyewear based on the face size (typically male versus female who generally have smaller faces) and face shape. When determining whether you have a oval, round, square, heart shaped, or triangle shaped face isn’t very cut and dry. The simply reality is most people are a combination of 2 or 3 of the options and, in the end, the guide are spits out a list of one-size-fits-all sunglasses or eyewear, anyway.
The best way to get a comfortable, functional sunglass fit starts with the proper sunglass size that offers adjustability. Different sunglass sizes help match to different head / face sizes and adjustable touch points at the temples and nose pieces allow end users to tailor the best fit exactly to their face shaped size
Not only are properly fitting eyewear pieces more comfortable, they also protect the eyes better and really enhance the end users vision. In most sports, in particular cycling and running type sports, vision drives performance. Having super fitting sunglasses can boost performance by reducing glare from road surfaces and enhancing the contrast while being less distracted by sunglasses staying in place and feeling more comfortable.
The Rudy Project sports sunglasses are really designed to offer an unparalleled comfort and the perfect fit . Shaped by our in-house bio-metric engineers designers and tested by many professional athletes around the world, our eyewear incorporates incredible comfort solutions, complete adjustability, and full customisation of the eyewear.
There are several models – like the Rydon and Tralyx which offer Standard and Slim fit frame sizes. Any model from Rudy Project that has the name "SLIM" added to is a smaller frame version than the bigger standard one. For example the Rydon Slim is 5.2mm smaller in width across the front frame. The temple arms and nose pads are exactly the same for both both. The Slim versions for the Rydon Slim, Tralyx Slim are designed with narrow faces in mind.
All the Rudy Project’s sport sunglasses and some casual eyewear feature fully adjustable temple end tips and nose pieces. The tips can be adjusted in any direction by applying light pressure, and thanks to our innovative T-Lock system, they can be replaced when worn out to maintain a completely customised fit and perfect grip plus they get to look new again.
The adjustable nose pads provide outstanding comfort on the nose and offer an exceptional fit for any shape face and cheek structure including asian fitting. The nose pieces can be used to adjust the glasses height and distance from the face which is pretty amazing and this can also help preventing fogging. These adjustments allow users to customise their fit to perfectly to their face and match their needs and will accommodate people looking for Asian, alternate, or low-bridge fit glasses.
