Revo’s new Cusp-S sunglasses are primed for mountain biking. The frame is lightweight, the hinges have a bit of extra give in case you crash or drop them (we did both), and rubber grips bolster contact points on the ears and bridge of the nose.
Smacking unavoidable low-hanging branches and inevitable drops failed to significantly scratch the polarized orange serilium lenses. For such bright, reflective lenses, these did fairly well in shade or when clouds swung in from the Cantabrian Sea. Our testers did note that, despite the four small holes drilled in the rimless corners, the lenses fogged when going full gas on steep climbs. Less so than some of Revo’s similarly advertised competitors, but the new design does not fully combat lens fogging.
While the Cusp-S was defeating glare and dust, our testers were able to focus on the line at hand, and navigate difficult trails safely. If style is more of a concern, however, check out the Revo Lukee.
Tester Comment: “Sleek and fast and comfortable. Reliable in sunny conditions, ok in shade, and pretty good — but not perfect — anti-fog properties. Mountain bikers and runners should consider this a solid choice from Revo.”
