Great review of our bifocal prescription lenses from John, thanks very much!

I have been very happy with the prescription lenses fitted in the 504 frames. Rad8 were very accommodating when I requested bifocals rather than varifocals. I was disappointed when my local optician, where I have spent, literally, hundreds of pounds refused to let me know my pupil to pupil distance when they gave me a copy of my prescription but with the help of an online guide or two it was easy to measure the pupil to pupil distance. The lenses are wide enough to offer good eye protection and being bifocals I can read my GPS, then look along the trail to see where I am going to have my next accident, all without swapping glasses. Optically, the lenses are exactly like the bifocals I usually wear for day to day activity and have remained scratch-free for over a year now, despite being in use, mountain biking, up to five times a week. The photochromic coating works well but does not react particularly fast when transitioning from bright light to dark woods or suchlike, in my experience, this is the way all photochromic lenses behave, so I can’t hold it against the glasses. They are so comfortable, I often arrive home still wearing them after driving home from the moors. Being the most expensive glasses I have ever owned they are better looked after than my first born child, who is currently somewhere in South East Asia, I’m not sure where exactly but I know precisely where my Rad8 glasses are, safely in their hard case, inside my helmet bag waiting for their next jaunt across the moors. The service and after-service from Rad8 is second to none and I have no hesitation in recommending their products to anyone.

Andys (Orena45blog) blog from the last of the Welsh Gravity Enduro series makes good reading. The photos are great and thanks to Andy for the interesting blogs over the previous months. I just hope Andy can find the time to carry on with the reports in 2019. 👍

As the darker nights close in, a decent set of lights is a relatively cheap investment to keep you out on the MTB Trails. Join up with Hampy if you are in the Nottingham area and you fancy trying it out. 😎👍

A great review from IMB magazine. Like many of the other magazines and MTB riders out there. They like them.

This a great review of Hampys' venture into the world of endurance racing, having successfully finished the Thetford D2D 12 hour MTB race. A brilliant blog and although not on my bucket list I feel as if i was there.😎👍🍾🍾

Rad8 might not be your first thought for eyewear, but the small British company is making a fair bit of noise about their glasses. From a desire to have glasses that 'were comfortable, adapt to the light chang...
