On the AMO Website when ordering you can chose either Sport Case or a Bullet one, the kind people from AMO have dispatched the Bullet case for me on this review, a very nice strong case this one, holds the Ironcatcher plus the spare lens and cloth with no trouble, not to sure if this is a dearer option when ordering, so be sure to check your order first, I have check and the price does not go up or down for either case.
Limited time there is a 20% off code on there website!
Model types: I have the Ironcatcher model here on review, AMO offer 3 range's of Sport cycling glasses on there website listed for the road cyclist, plus a range for the mountain biker as well.Each and every pair have the great Grilamid®TR-90 frame, and you also have a fantastic range of lenses to chose from which you decide on when placing a order on there website.
The AMO lens I have been sent are the premium polycarbonate mirror finish dark lens, and the Yellow ones, you can change the colour of the arms on the ordering section as well, so lots of choice weather you are running, rowing, road cycling or on the mountain bike and any other action sport like triathlons Iron man events
My Verdict: Once out on a ride the AMO felt great, fogging was kept to a minimum due to the air vent, and these work really well, on a ride with the rain and wind coming at me from all sides the AMO Ironcatcher did the trick of helping to keep the vision clear, making it a whole lot safer to cycle.
Arms: I found the arms were really easy to change, the AMO Ironcatcher comes with a pair of arms if you fancy going jogging in them, in fact the whole frame felt great and unbreakable under normal use.
Lens: If you have ever owned a decent pair of cycling glasses, then the last last thing you want to do with them is drop them right! and when that happens your "Heart" misses a beat! and that is what happened to me! I accidentally dropped them, and when I picked them up to check the frame and lens noticed a scratch on the left lens, I tried to get it out by rubbing but cant shift it, most glasses when this happens the scratch get in your line of vision and I noticed even though the lens had a scratch it did not show up on them when I put them on, so no problem, I will try to find out if the Ironcatcher has a protective coating on the lens.
AMO have explained the Revo coating more to me.
The Revo coating on the lens explained here, http://www.amosunglasses.com/technology/lens-coatings
AMO Do say on there website the Revo lens coating is more susceptible to scratching than AMO's other lenses.
The AMO lifetime guarantee does not include scratches to the Revo coatings.
Out on the ride: On a sunny day the AMO Ironcatcher are great for keeping the Sun out your eyes, and the wind around the face, perfect for the sunny ride out.
All set for a very wet ride out to test the AMO Ironcatcher on a very wet day!
I Have been out with the AMO on a very heavy down pour and they seemed to cope well with the rain clearing off the lens, and at no time did they mist or fog up on the inside of the lens, but today's ride was a bit different, with very light rain and wind from all sides all the time I was out on the ride, and I found the AMO just could not cope with this sort of fine rain, was a case of removing them to somewhere safe for a while until the rain stopped.
I was expecting the AMO Lens I was wearing to have the Hydrohobic water repellent coating on the lens, so I was surprised when the lens could not cope with the light drizzle!
I like them, they do the job well in the right condition, comfortable and a great design, how well the lens will stand up to my treatment that is another mater! Value for money, compares reasonable with other on the market..
