"Brought these after mistakenly buying some long tights that were not padded. They were perfect to wear underneath the dhb long tights. I did get a little warmer than normal but I was riding 90kms so will save them for the cooler days or to wear under baggy shorts in summer."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

Is there a trick to changing the lenses?

The instructions included are useless. I can't get the lens to click out and I'm scared of breaking them.
Never had changeable lenses before.
Yes found it really easy just pulled the lens away from the nose end and swapped out easily

Is this product adjustable?

The description says it is, the reviews say it isn't. Thanks.
Nope it's not adjustable - I have a small head it's a tad big but once my helmet it is on it's not a problem. Not sure how it would perform if you were running in it
