Framed sunnies are still in style, despite the prevalence of the futuristic mirrored frameless models that have become increasingly popular as of late. No one supports a lightweight framed lens more than POC, and its Crave Sunglasses are one of many in POC's line that embrace the framed look, albeit on a modern scale. Modern, in this case, means lightweight grilamid frames surrounding Carl Zeiss polycarbonate lenses that are available in a wide range of tints to match to the most common conditions you ride in.
The grilamid on the frame is actually flexible, and while it won't allow you to roll-up the Crave and put it in your saddle pack, it does help prevent cracks and damage from everyday use. On hot days when the wind stops as you're in the middle of a sunny, never-ending climb, the hydrophilic rubber nose and earpieces on the frames will keep them from moving around as you work up a sweat, because there's nothing more frustrating than having to take a hand off the bars every few seconds to shove a pair of wandering sunglasses back onto your nose when you're already working hard.
POC's choice of Carl Zeiss lenses also ensures that the Crave will give you consistent visibility, even on days when the weather is less than optimal. A Ripel treatment on the lenses repels dirt, resists fogging, and blocks grime so you don't get stuck on the side of the road wiping off your lenses mid-ride.

- Fit: True to size
I was initially scared off by price but after doing research on the product and the brand, I took the leap.
These are great glasses. They are light and true to description, are grippy where they need to be. I ride a with Catlike helmet and there were no fit issues.
The tint is great and the clarity is better than any glasses I have ever owned including Oakley and Ray-Ban.
