    Has anyone ever run into the problem that brand new Radars are too wide and don't fit on your head properly? I just sold a brand new pair of Ichiros on ebay and the buyer e-mailed me to say they do not fit and are too wide compared to other Radars. Is this a common problem? Is there a way to tighten them up? I am trying to help the buyer here and figure out what we can do to make them fit snug.

    Here is what he said:

    if you look at the end points of the arms (near earssocks end) you ll see that theyre almost 2cm wider than other radar. this is what effects the grip on the head and thats why they feel loose!...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I believe the Ichiro's are Asian Fit, and most Asian Fit shades are a little bit wider than others to fit our faces. This usually doesn't affect me, as it's the nose piece that does the trick most of the time.

    Not so much that they fit wide on me but they look wide on me.

    They're made specifically to fit outside of helmet straps and hats/brims. You must have a really wide head if Radars fit snug at the temples.

    I am pretty much a Radar freak, and yes for Asian Fit, they are wide compared to the Standard Fit, hence there will definitely be a sense of "loose"-ness and less snug feel. As you can see from the picture, the top Radar is a custom Retina Burn Radar Path while the remaining four Radars are the Ichiro series.

    The interested thing is how the Path lens is able to fit well for both the Standard and Asian Fits despite their difference in curvature.
