Two years later and I’m still enjoying my pair of Leggero’s. The polarized grey lenses do a superb job of providing true color perception, minimizing glare and filtering out light. Brown and yellow tinted polarized lenses are also available, as well as two non-polarized options at a lower pricepoint. In addition, Ombraz now offers a blue blocking Zeiss Polyamide lens for reducing eye fatigue if you spend a lot of time on screens (which is why I just purchased a pair of blue blocking Teton’s for the office). The lenses have held up extremely well, although do show some minor scratches after 2 years of solid use. The accompanying neoprene case with a stitched-in microfiber cloth that comes with every pair is one of my favorite things about the Ombraz experience. The purpose-built case is all you need to keep the sunglasses protected and clean. It’s slim and lightweight, with the built-in cloth that’s always there when you need it.
In terms of downsides, there is only one that I’d consider significant enough to mention to potential armless converts. Given the way that the product is designed, the frame does rest gently on my forehead. As there is no rigid hinge at a 90° degree angle, the frame is free to tilt forward or back while resting on the nose. Typically the top of the Leggero frame does touch my brow, collecting sweat more easily than a frame that is completely free from the forehead. I always wear a cycling cap with a sweatband that does a good job managing moisture, but if your someone that experiences a lot of face sweating while riding, the design may not be for you.
