    On Monday I got my Olympic Radarlocks. Finally got some time to take better pictures.

    As some of you might know, this stuff is really rare. They were only available to the Olympic athletes during 2012 London OG and possibly during the last event in Sochi. I got the matte retina burn and matte team green frame. Both are Edge versions, but the fit is almost the same as the regular version. I also got H.I.Persimmon Path lens and Ruby phtochromic Pitch lens.

    Matte Retina Burn - the color might look a bit darker in the pictures than the standard retina, but it's camera fault and lacks of sun. It's just like a standard retina in a direct sunlight, altough might appear not as bright as regular retina in the darker environment, thanks to it's matte finish and not gloss.

    Matte Team Green - I have customised this set with red earsocks and red iridium lens. Looks stunning in real life (the green is a bit brighter).

    What would you compare the Blue Iridium too? Is it kind of similar to G30, but in a neutral base?

    Blue Iridium is VR28 based so it's a brown, contrast enhancing tint (G30 is pink based and lighter). As far as I remember BI's light transparency is said to be similar to the Jade or Red Iridium, but they appear a lot brighter when looking through. Overall great lens for use on overcast days or for sports activity in the woods (especially bike) where you need some colors boosting to better see terrain ahead.
