Anthony Greenwood wrote this, sometimes tongue in cheek, review of the Zonyk’s with the Purple Vario Lens.. We hope you like it!
“The Adidas Zonyk Varios have arrived. Inside the box is the case, inside the case is the bag, inside the bag are the glasses. All good so far!
I took the glasses out and inspected them. They are very well made, feel sturdy and look the part. Putting them on for the first time felt pretty good, looked in the mirror, as you do. I was immediately surprised at the size of the lenses, they are big, but big in a good way…
I took them off, put them on, off, on, off and on, shook my head all about, they stayed on thanks to the sticky rubber on the nose and arms keeping them pretty firm. They are still feeling good.
Confident in my purchase. I then sat down and read the included brochure. Hey, I discovered the adjustment options. I then started to play….
The arms have three positions, which alter the angle of the lens on your face. The nose bridge can be adjusted in two positions to fit a broad or narrow nose. The sweat bar comes on and off. With all this adjustment I could dial them into an incredible fit and maximum comfort. Loving this!
Two times out so far. First in overcast cloud, the lens cast a warm tone over pretty flat shadows. Very pleasing but nothing ground breaking. The second ride was a bright, blue sky day. I thought this would be the test. Firstly and predictably they cast a pleasingly subtle hue, but I wanted to experience the Vario working. I took my ride down a road I new would have intermittent shade from overhead trees. I rode under the trees and waited and it really didn’t take long, I noticed a small change in the lens. It was subtle but it was noticeable. Great, they worked! Now I was riding into shadow and back into the sun and the lens reacted, balancing the tonal quality. Really impressed!
During both rides, the fit and the stability of the glasses stayed true. The lens on the large pair I ordered are wide, giving a very wide field of vision. The nose piece, which gets talked about a lot, was noticeable in the short term, but quickly forgotten about.
Overall I’m really impressed. A great fit is capable by wide amounts of adjustability. The lens of the Purple Vario gives a pleasing colour and shadow definition. The Vario just works!!!! I’m happy!”
It looks like we have a happy customer there! Thank you for your entry Anthony, we hope you enjoy your new pair! Also thank you to all those who took part.
