The Draw: Crazy Adjustability
Think of the Sintryx like Transformers—you can make them sit higher or lower on your face by bending the integrated nosepiece to your will, or squeeze your head for dear life (or not) by bending the middle of the temple grips. That adjustability made them fit both our smaller- and larger-headed testers. The myriad cutouts in the frames and below the lenses improved airflow and reduced sweat-induced fogging (also adding to the Transformers look). Some might find the thick frames distracting—especially in fire red gloss—and a bit heavy, but you can take comfort knowing that if you ever crash on them, they’re specially designed to break up without poking your eyes out.
$300; 6 frame colors, 9 lens options; prescription insert available
