The Runningswede has been trying new 2014 sunglasses products together with Team Wicked Bonkproof founder/coach Caleb Masland. The sunglasses in this review has been tested during all kinds of weather conditions and work outs in New Jersey and North Carolina. We started to test the sunglasses back in February so the products has been trough a lot of different weather conditions. Brands featured in upcoming reviews are:
Julbo, Ryder, Sundog, Tifosi, Nike and XX2i. 

Sundog

Pace
The only one piece lens in the test. 


Overall Rating: Excellent


Fit: Pace with its one piece lens has become to be one of my favorites. The feel Pace tends to disappear during runs which is a really great sign. he pace can run small on a bigger face. Frames and nose tip are adjustable so you will have no problems with your fit..

Smoke – Shiny Black (Green Accent)

Sun Blockage: The one piece lens is a great option an a windy day as it block the winds great. The lens itself is very dark which is a great feature on a sunny day. On a cloudy day, I experience the lens being a bit to dark. With the open frame design, nothing is in the way for your vision.

Venting/Antifogging: No problems with fogging as the lens and frame breaths really well. 

Interchangeable Lenses: No 


Best for: Everyday running. Pace was the only one piece lens in the test. Lot of runners and the trend has been geared towards this style lately. Pace is a really good contender in this category. Priced right and the adjustment opportunities make Pace a great option. 

Drawbacks: Can run small on lager faces. 






Bolt

Overall Rating: Excellent (Coach Caleb's favorite) 

Gradient Smoke – White Green


Fit: Very flexible and light, these glasses only touch on the nose an ears. These had the best shape for my face, and are the least noticeable when on. Nosepiece and earpieces are rubberized for added comfort.

Sun Blockage: Excellent. The lenses are very dark and provide complete coverage of the field of vision.

Venting/Antifogging: These lenses have multiple vents and are only attached to the frame at the nose. This provides excellent airflow and prevents fogging in all conditions.

Interchangeable Lenses: No (at least, not provided for testing)
Best For: Racing, and everyday use for sunny days.

Drawbacks: None

Kick

Fit: Great lifestyle fit. Its more relaxed but they stay put during easy and faster runs. We have not experienced any slippage during our runs.

Smoke (Ice Mirror) – Black

Sun Blockage: Very comfortable blockage that works in all kinds of weather conditions.

Venting/Antifogging: Does not fit close to the face as a traditional performance styled eye wear. Frame and lens breaths well. No issues with fogging. 

Interchangeable Lenses: No

Best for: Relaxed runs and on the the podium. Does not have the traditional performance fit, but they do work great and stay put during your run.

Drawbacks: None as we can see, good looking eye wear that can be used for multi-purposes and you look cool!
