In the movie Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, it was the ANSI Classics by Gargoyles that added mystery behind Schwarzenegger’s immortal roll in the film. Today, the eye wear maker continues to style all of its glasses with notable character, including its sports line.

The formfitting Gargoyles cycling specific sunglasses fit great. Around the ears and nose area, its weight ranks average, relative to its pears.
