I am a elite triathlete in Hong Kong and train with the Hong Kong triathlon team. I am serious about all my equipment including my sports sunglasses.
I am writing this review as I consider that AMO sunglasses are a great addition to any athlete’s training and racing kit. I wear my AMO sunglasses during training sessions and always for triathlon racing.
I the features I like about the Transformer range are as follows:
I like the fact that I can easily interchange the lenses depending on the weather and light conditions This gives me great versatility.
clip lock system
The lenses in the AMO Transformer range are super easy to change using their "Click-lock" system.
NONE SLIDE DESIGN
I love the non-slide nose pieces and the adjustable temple arms.
These design features are important as I don’t like my spots sunglasses sliding down or moving around on my nose when I happen to glance down at my aero bars on the bike or to check my heart rate monitor.
The nose pieces grip firmly, don’t slide and the temple arms are flexible and can be adjusted to the width of my head in order to more firmly ‘hug’ my head and avoid any movement.
The adjustable nose pieces also prevent the AMO sunglasses from bouncing up and down when I’m running.
Adjustable nose piece
AMO Sunglasses are the first sunglasses I’ve used which have never fogged up during training or racing no matter what time of year it is or what sort of training session I’m doing.
This is a great feature if you train early or at altitude.
I’ve recently started racing in the AMO photochromic lenses which change colour depending on the lighting conditions.
These are the best for race day as our transition preparation and warm up usually begins when it’s still dark out with the race start just around when the sun is beginning to rise. By the time we get on the bike, the to sun is blaring.
Regardless of sun or clouds or if it’s overcast and rainy, the AMO photochromic lenses will adjust to provide the prefect amount of shade or be almost clear since to be used for safety purposes.
NOT JUST FOR SPORT
I like my AMO sunglasses so much that I also wear the AMO Nimbus model from the Typhoon series as casual wear when I’m not training.
I would recommend AMO sunglasses to any triathlete. For me, they are truly outstanding sports sunglasses that are designed by a triathlete who understand what I need!
