    Which Native glasses for riding?

    I've got 2 pairs of Native Tare's which I have been using both on and off the bike. All my lenses are scratched and when I went to order replacements, I was told that because the glasses have been discontinued for a while, no lens kits remain.

    Fortunately, Native's warranty replacement plan is such that I was offered my choice of any of the current styles (non-metal framed) at no charge.

    Anyone else currently wearing Native's? If so, which style and do you like them?

    I have the Native Dash XP. They are great all around shades, but with the polarized lenses in them, I find them too dark to use in the woods. Even though the lenses are easily interchangable, I find it easier just to use a second pair of cheaper photochromatic glases (Tifosi) for riding under the trees or in low light conditions. That way when I go to leave the trail, my Natives are not all covered in sweat and grime.
    --If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

    I absolutely love the Silencer. I lost a pair on a ride recently (ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and after dealing with a cheapo pair in two long races, I just ordered a new pair. Luckily I still have my old lenses so i'll have a ton of backup options.

    I've been using the silencers for a few years. I love having the ability to easily change lenses. I warrantied the frames through native because one of the earpieces was a little loose. their customer service was great.
