Oakley Sutro
Cycling Weekly Verdict

I like the Oakley Sutro's and many people will, although they won't be to everyone's taste. I like the way they felt on my head but for me they kept slipping down my nose and needed constant adjustment. Good coverage though and if bigger sunnies are your thing, these are certainly that.

Personally, I feel Oakley is still the best eyewear brand out on the market for cycling, but there's no denying the American brand has been reeled in by the likes of 100% and Smith. However, with its new Oakley Sutro glasses, an urban visor like offering, the brand is look to fight back.
