Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not bad
Good price, but that's for a reason. They scratch easily, and the arms aren't very strong, can break easily. Having to change the nose piece for each lens is a pain in the a**e.
They do slide down my nose and mist up easily. However, the range of lenses is excellent, especially the yellow one which brightens up dull days no end.
If you want a cheap but functional pair of sunnies for road or MTB they are OK, but don't expect them to last too long.
The new Leopards look a better bet...anyone tried them yet?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Overall good value for money.
Generally, good pair of glasses and value for money. The clear lens work best for me and they're usable at night too. They tend to mist up whilst stationary, especially on colder days - soon clear up though once you get moving again. Lenses are easily replaceable, they just pop out of the frame and pop back in.
I have a similar view to the other reviewers with regards to the fit of the lens in the frame - the lenses have popped out of the frame on several occasions now whilst I have been adjusting them on my face during cycling. It seems that the lenses could do with a slightly tighter fit in the frame.
Another issue I have with them is they tend to slide down my nose whilst cycling so I have to repeatedly push them back up when cycling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous good and bad (but resolvable)
I recently ordered a pair of these glasses. As per some other reviews on the site for them, I found out that one of the lenses was too small to stay secure in the frame. (was too short by about 3mm)
I called Bloc directly, being quite concerned as I have always been happy with Bloc sunglasses in the past.
They informed me that there was a batch of lenses made to the wrong size, and sometimes they get sent out with the packs of glasses with interchangeable lenses.
Bloc asked to have them sent back to them but I decided to contact chain reaction cycles with the complaint. I have not arranged for a new pair to be sent out in replacement, and have the old pair refunded. I have specified that they new pair will need to be checked before they are sent to me.
The fit and look of these is great, but please get them to check the lenses before they are sent!

This is a great pair of glasses, light, no way they can fall off and all. However, i will be extremely cruel with my rating, because of two issues, one of greater, one of lesser importance:
A BIG dissapointment, is the fact that one of the three lenses for some reason is too loose when put on the glasses. And when i say loose, i mean loose, it fell off from the main body of the glasses as i was pulling them of the top of my head one time! I m really dissapointed because i cant figure out how people that got into all this trouble of designing and manufacturing such glasses would make the mistake to provide one lense that is obviously smaller in size than it ought to. I was also surprised to see there was no manual or anything included describing the best way to change the lenses, so i am trying to figure out the best way myself, in danger of breaking something..
The second thing is what you see in the photo! the huge letters in the word 'BLOC' right in the middle. Thought it was a sticker, removable, didnt you? Well guess again! Its permanent on all three lenses! Hey manufacturer, you re BLOCking my view!!!

Unfortunately, those glasses do not have optical inserts for proper prescription lenses . CRC do not stock a wide range of these style of glasses and the only style available is shown below: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/.... However, I would normally recommend getting a proper set of custom Oakley glasses if you are looking for a suitable protection and proper eyesight etc.
