Rudy Project Ergomask ReviewMay 20, 2015
- Excellent optics with a wide field of vision
- Excellent adjustability with fully adjustable nosepads and temple tips
- Very lightweight
- Frame and lens are large—not good for smaller faces
Truly chock full of performance features—including definition-enhancing optics, full adjustability, and a lightweight design, this sunglass delivered the most performance of all sunglasses in this test. My only gripe: I found this sunglass’ large profile to be a poor fit for my smaller face.
Fit & Comfort
The Rudy Project Ergomask has a lightweight design that delivers noticeable comfort on the road and trail. One of my favorite features of the Ergomask is its true adjustability for a custom fit—both its nosepads and temple tips are bendable and adjustable so you can dial in your own perfect fit. This feature isn’t seen on enough performance sunglasses today. At the same time, the Ergomask does feature an oversized design that’s meant for medium to large faces—it kept sliding down my nose, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you have a smaller face.
I tested Rudy Project’s Multilaser Green non-polarized lenses in the Ergomask. True to Rudy Project form, the Multilaser Green lens served up excellent optical clarity and contrast enhancement. In addition, its wrap design delivered coverage plus really good peripheral vision.
Because of its large profile and wrapped design, the Ergomask did an excellent job of blocking my eyes and face from the wind. It also has a top-of-frame ventilation system that worked well to minimize lens fogging.
