LIMAR CRUZ RIDING GLASSES REVIEW

THE LOAM WOLF

Words by Cole Gregg

The Dirt

Out of the box, there was really no fussing with these for my first ride. I left the adjustable nose piece in the factory position, and it stayed that way for my entire time behind the bars with these glasses. When I did opt to go to the clear lenses, which I did often, (more on that later) changing them out was super simple. There were no oh sh!t moments thinking I was going to snap the lens or the frame. This is partly due to the fact that the CRUZ is only a half framed model, making for an easier switch. I have been leaning more towards this style of riding glasses as I find that there is less distraction for your eyes to get used to. Your vision down to the bars blend in and I end up forgetting I am even using them a lot of the time.

The first thing I noticed upon opening the packaging was how freaking light these were. In your hands you have a hard time even telling you are holding something, and on your face they melt away. I am a chronic “on, off, on, off” user of riding glasses, storing them on my helmet for the climbs. I found myself leaving these on for the climbs for whatever reason, I do not think there is any direct reason why I did but I’m sure the lack of weight played into this.

How did these perform out on the trails of Spokane Washington? I think I would give these a solid score of 8.75 out of 10 with an asterisk attached. 10/10 in weight and comfort, as well as how well they stayed in place. Not once did I need to adjust mid descent due to them falling out of position. My asterisk comes in two areas however.

The stock 15% transmission lens was a bit too dark for my own personal liking. When in an open field they were great, but dense wooded forests caused me to really pay attention to shadows disguised as roots, even during the day. Coming down the hill for the last time before sunset they were dangerously dark, leading me to put them in my pocket on a few occasions. But, with that said, the clarity and color saturation of the lens was on par, if not better than my Smith Wildcats or Oakley Sutro’s with the Prizm lens. They have a super crisp natural vision feel, which boosts the natural shadows and colors on trail.

The Wolf's Last Word

For riders looking to block out the sun yet retain maximum clarity, the Limar CRUZ glasses with their tinted lenses will do the trick at a wallet-friendly price. They melt away into the background with a secure fit which had me sold from my first ride, and they continue to be my eye protection of choice after fitting the clear lens.
