    Just glancing over the rockgardn site and there's no mention of UVA/UVB or full spectrum anywhere. So if you're like some on here that don't mind not having eye protection from the sun, just from objects and wind then give them a shot.
    I wouldn't say they could compare to Oakley's though. Oakley's really do have very nice lens clarity, and are full spectrum (except for clear lenses).

    UVA/UVB talk is like a Internet pissing match. While riding the most important thing to me is protection from debris and it's resistance to fogging. In those aspects the RG glasses are perfect. I run mine with the sweat buster removed and with tinted lenses.

    the pangaea lenses are polycarbonate, which inherently blocks most uv.

    What dwyooaj says is correct: since the lenses are polycarbonate, they're almost completely transparent until 400nm, at which point they offer 100% UV protection. It's the nature of the material itself.

    I actually have a pair (picked them up with a coupon from Universal a while back for like $25 shipped). For what it is worth they are decent enough glasses. Dark lenses are pretty good in bright light and the amber lenses work well when they are needed. However, shortly after getting them my brother picked up a pair of Nike riding glasses for that are much better. For the money and if you are looking for a cheap pair of glasses to thrash they are good, comfortable and come with the prescription lens adapter and a helmet bad system. The only problem I had with them is that while doing a paddleboard race wearing them I inadvertantly grabbed the lens to pull them off my face and the lens actually popped out. They have now been relegated to back-up duty.
