The ANSI standard is an independent test.
The test is the for all brands and products.
Any brand that passes the test is credited with the rating.
Therefore, all brands with the rating are at the very least, equivalent.
So a video showing the testing for brand A is going to look very similar to the same testing on brand B
This isn't a matter of opinion.
It's admirable that you want to help people, but posting sarcastic memes that demonstrate your ignorance isn't the way to do it, and throwing tantrums when you get called on it isn't the way to handle it. This is a great forum, with minimal interference by mod(s), with some very sharp people and accomplished riders contributing. If you're wrong, man up and accept it.
Wait hang on -- is that you, Steve?
Ansi means that it can withstand a metal ball traveling at 100mph. Does this sound like a bullet to you? It sounds more like a bb gun to me. And if you think for one second I am not going to defend myself then you are dead wrong. When someone calls me out I am going to respond, I don't sit there and hide, I go out and see what the problem is. If that's the way you do things I feel sorry for you, and I hope you never end up in prison.

LFAK, Let me break down what this sounds like to others for you
I am always right
If you disagree with me you are an idiot (actually lots of name calling at this point)
I am the greatest, coolest guy.
Why do people pick on me here?
Sound childish? Silly? Sorry, that's just how it sounds.
I'm now out of this, again, so no need to reply to me.
I don't say i'm always right, there have been times I have been wrong. And I own up to every single mistake I have made like a man.
I have never once in my life said if you don't agree with me then you are an idiot. That's bullshit.
Yes I am a very cool guy you got that right. But when it's time to defend myself, it's time to defend. Even if you don't like it.
I think I have an idea of why everyone wants to pick on me. It's because they can't handle being wrong like a man and owning up to their mistakes. And I realize there is going to be people like that on every forum, but this forum is flooded with them.

Spoke to my eye doc today and he says to tell you Mr.Skeptic that "yes" the impact strength of the Spy lenses Ansi-z87.1 are just as strong as those in the non Spy videos posted here.
He further said that the reason lenses like that don't shatter in pieces is not only because they are made of polycarbonate material
They have a steep curve to them that acts like a dome for extra strength and the lenses edges fit into a deeper groove for maximum lens retention
Also they are 2.0 mm at the outer edges with a center of 2.2 and at bridge 2.4 and that adds more strength ( he calls that process decentered or prismatic compensated for stress free vision)
And finally he says since the lenses are laminated / sandwiched with a polarized film it will absorb even more energy
Take my doc's word for it
Advice for you LFAK....don't give people so much FLAK (criticism)
How does he know? Did he take a gun and shoot himself in the eye with it? I'm sorry man, but your doctor didn't do any testing. He's pretending like he knows because those glasses have the little Ansi-z87 sticker on it which means it has impact strength like you said, BUT, it isn't bulletproof, like you have insinuated by posting those videos. And lets say they really are bulletproof, do you think the lenses will stay inside the frame when a bullet hits it? Hell no, that shit is going to pop right out and poke someone's eye out.
And when you think about it, it's not very smart posting videos like that because someone could get hurt trying to show their friends just how "bulletproof" their glasses are. You need to take down that posting, because it's also a liability issue. This is also another reason I have had to make it very clear that those glasses AREN"T bulletproof. I would hate to see you get sued over your posting, or thrown in prison where you know what will happen to your ass.
See I actually care about people like you on this forum, and that's why I go out of my way to make sure everyone get's the correct information. Because I don't want to see anyone get hurt.
Do you see where i'm coming from? I hope you have learned a big lesson from all this. And please next time, let everyone know that any video not related to the topic is not related to the topic. Don't trick us into making us believe that something irrelevant is the same as what is being discussed.
Have a good day
