    Got roped into a running a tri through work. Looking forward to it. But really also using it as a good excuse to get some performance Oakleys. Curious if any of you have experience on which frames work best for the running/biking combo.

    I've got my eyes on racing jackets - but open to other options if there's a general consensus on the best frames for a tri.

    flak 2.0 or the new EV ZERO.
    A frame with no rim is best

    I am an original Radar dinosaur! I've got 12 or so pair and rotate them. Exclusively cycling for me, over a hundred miles per week. None of that running / swimming sh!t you tri guys do...insane!

    I agree with @the_owl about rimless....I can have a top rim like the radar (and their Plus and Lock variations) but ABSOLUTELY NO BOTTOM rim for me, sweat seems to collect and spray when I move my head. I tried on the new EV Zero this week and am going to order a pair with the Range prizm road lens (Range is their largest profile lens) online, the store didn't have the frame I wanted in stock. This may be comfortable enough to break into my Radar rotation!

    Try out a bunch, you will find one that works and you like!
