I have some Oakley Radar Paths with polarized lenses in them which I love, but I want some photochromic ones. Oakley don't sell these though so I am considering some of the aftermarket options on eBay such as http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-WL-Polar ... 4613088b3c
Does anyone have past experience with these sellers? Can only recommend anyone else? They appear to be ~$70 which is the cost of some of the less poser brands sell complete sunnies for like JetBlank.
I have some Walleva lenses for my Half Jackets. They do the job fine but they are not as good as genuine. They are a bit thinner and therefore don't feel quite as secure in the frame. They are not much different price wise to the group buy price for genuine and I only went with the Walleva as I needed them quickly.
Given there is not a genuine option for you I would say the aftermarket are worth it. they Delivered quickly and the product was what I expected.
Are you sure Oakley don't sell them?
RADAR PATH Clear Black Iridium Photochromic - $179.95
And these are the RadarLock ones for the same price.
I checked out the company and while English isn't the strong point in the ebay and video, the video presentation certainly demonstrated a certain level of tech.
The lenses arrived today the 21/3 and they were posted on the 3/3 which is pretty good. The tracking was only good with the usa.
First impressions were good. Professional packaging, soft case and cleaning cloth.
Notably thinner than the Oakley polarized ones I had in there. The thinness made putting the lenses in a pain because they flex and resist going into the nose notches.
As already said here they are not clear when at their lightest. Nor are they dark when out in bright sunlight. Actually, they are a bit of a disappointment in this respect. However I want them for riding single track xc type courses so they should be good for this. I got the vented lenses because every set of glasses I own fogs up. Am keen you see how these go.
Optics aren't Oakley quality either! But they cost me just under $55.delivered so they can't really be compared I guess.
Will report back after a few rides, especially after some early morning under lights rides
