Why We Like The Aspire Sunglasses

In a sea of aggressively styled, increasingly space-aged, cookie cutter shades, the POC Aspire Sunglasses' modern styling stands out and boldly dares to be different. Their partially framed nylon Carl Zeiss lens ensures we have consistent clarity and a wide field of wind-protected vision. A Ripel treatment, well, repels dirt, resists fogging, and generally fends off grime so we spend less time by the side of the road cleaning our lenses and more time enjoying the views from the saddle.

Love the design but the function falls short. Lens is great. The frame is flimsy and has no nose pad adjustment. Mine fit my face poorly and I can't adjust them. The temples have loosened so much from standard use the glasses fall off my face (once while riding and glancing behind me). Like so many POC products, the design is amazing but the function falls short.

I've been wearing these glasses since about July. and I have to say, They are pretty sweet. Super comfortable, The arms on the glasses are able to bend which allows you to fit them properly to your face. They are lightweight, breathable (no fogging) While they may look big on your face, I find it helps keep light from sneaking around the glasses directly into your eyes. I replaced my Smith Attack Mag sunglasses with these, Which was a very hard thing to do. But I'm glad I made the switch, they have phenomenal color in a wide variety of lighting conditions. I recommend picking up a pair! They fit nicely with my Smith Session MIPS Helmet and my Lazer Z1 Mips Helmet.

I purchased these glasses with fitness and lifestyle in mind. I wanted something sturdy that would provide solid coverage without sacrificing comfort when wearing. While these definitely provide plenty of coverage, they do not feel well made and the temples are pretty uncomfortable when riding. I found this strange because the glasses had a hard time staying up on my nose despite the tight temples. Just an overall strange fit for me. Overall I think I would have kept them, but they just don't feel like the kind of glasses that will last.

I am loving these so far. I have always thought that bigger glasses were superior because of how much better they block wind/dust, and it seems like your field of view increases as well. I have used Oakley and Smith in the past, but these might be my new favorites. I also think that the Clarity lenses are some of the sharpest and most vibrant lenses I have used. Fairly light and sit comfortably on my face, and they go perfectly with my POC Tectal. Now go get some!

Admittedly I am an Oakley fanboy. Just wanted to start with that. I know it might seem silly but I feel like I notice the clarity difference between Oakley and other brands. With that said, these are super clear and I love them. Also, compared to the Oakley Sutro, which I think these are close to, these stay on my nose better with a lighter overall weight and a better grip when my face is sweaty. Plus you can adjust the temples. My face seems pretty average as far as width, I thought these would fall off cause they didn't squeeze very snug, but the nose material really holds on. Then I discovered you can change the tension by bending the temple pieces in the rubbery area, now they fit snug, giving me a little more peace of mind, even though they never moved on me before. I love these! They are super comfy, stay in place, offer amazing clarity, and block the wind wonderfully.
