"I think Sportful are my new favourite brand. Quality feel to everything I've bought.
Look great. Snug fit (XL on a 44 Specialized shoe...might be a bit tight on a 45).
Not abolutely sure they're any warmer than my old Castelli's neoprene.
"

How robust is it?

I commute 60+ miles a week on minor roads in the Lake District (lucky beggar, I know). The roads are pothole-ridden, rough and bumpy. Will this thing flap around, fall off or break (like my SKS one)?
I've been impressed so far. I site it about 1" above the wheel and I've not noticed it hit the wheel but even when 6" above the wheel, it keeps my backside dry.

The Eagle's range of antifog and scratch resistant curved lenses deliver amazing 180° visibility available off the shelf in half step increments from -1.5 to -6 diopters (prescription). To be used on with the Eagle goggles.
 

Which is the correct frame for Aqua Sphere Eagle Optical Lens?

Your website has two different Aqua Sphere Eagle Goggles. One is "Aqua Sphere Eagle Goggles with Clear and Tinted Lenses" and the other one is "Aqua Sphere Eagle Goggles with Clear Lens". Which is the correct frame for "Aqua Sphere Eagle Optical Lens"?
Both have removable lenses and can fit the optical lens. It depends if you want the 3rd option of the tinted lens as well.

Do the aqua sphere optical lenses fit aqua sphere vista goggles?

As far as I am aware, the optical lenses only fit the Aquasphere Eagle goggles
