Cycling Weekly Verdict

An impressive heads-up display with high quality lenses and low weight makes for the best HUD glasses available. However the fit of the unit is a little uncomfortable and the weight distribution means they are not as secure on your face, we also had some connectivity issues.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Heads-up display keeps eyes on the road

  • +

    Great quality lens, lightweight

  • +

    Easy to charge, good battery life

  • +

    Gesture control for customisable pages

  • +

    Not overpriced for HUD given the optics clarity

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Weight distribution can make them heavy on your face

  • -

    Battery unit can be uncomfortable

  • -

    Doesn’t work with Wahoo or Hammerhead

  • -

    Connectivity can be patchy
