Smith’s Pivlock Asanas are a revelation for those of us with smaller faces, who can find it a nigh-on impossible task to find riding glasses that fit.

The dimensions listed on Smith’s website made me feel confident of getting the right fit, and the frame sized up exactly as expected – important when you’re shelling out this sort of cash.

That money does get you something pretty special though. The sleek, minimal frame ensures a broad, uninterrupted field of vision, and it comes with three interchangeable lenses that can be popped in and out using Smith’s straightforward PivLock system.

I found that the lower of two available nose bridge settings offered the best protection for my eyes without the pad intruding into sight, as it did in the higher setting. The coverage provided by the Asanas is excellent and I didn’t get dirt in my eyes at any time during the testing period.

Slow-paced riding on sweaty days does lead to a little fogging but as soon as the pace picks up they vent well enough to clear pretty quickly. The lenses have a water resistant coating that clears rain well and has stood up well during three months of use.
