Description

Unassuming style.

Smith's Approach Max Sunglasses combine a streamlined look with a cycling-specific fit designed to keep you comfortable on your next bike ride. The enlarged lens profile delivers a broader coverage while maintaining a medium fit that will accommodate most face sizes. Carbonic TLT lenses taper gradually from the optical center of each lens to straighten light waves, delivering a true and accurate field of vision during your rides. The lenses are also treated with a hydroleophobic coating to prevent drops of sweat from obstructing your view during those long climbs. Adjust the two-position nose pads to dial in the perfect fit for your face, and descend with confidence knowing the slip-on temple tips will help keep these sunglasses welded to your face.

great filters and fits perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

they are really good lenses and the filters are just great, love the brand

Second Pair

    Love these glasses. I already have a pair of tortoise polarized I bought a few years ago. Easy lens change out and still look great. Wanted another pair for ski bag. Color purple is fun.

    Great sunglasses

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I used for road biking and I love it, they have a great fit, great wind protection and perfect visibility.

    Great for cycling/mtb

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: one size

    These are really fantastic. They keep the wind out of my eyes perfectly, but I don't get the effect of goggles where there's so little wind that I almost forget how fast I'm going (which can be a little risky at times), they don't distort too much, and you'll get used to the distortion, which is a factor with any eye wear, after a few seconds. They come with three sets of lenses, all of which feel pretty high quality and durable. Also the carrying case is very nice, since included is a sleeve for the glasses and a carrier for the lenses, all inside a hard case. There are also two fit options for the nose pieces which are very easy to adjust and stay put once set. Really good

    Jason,

    Thanks fore the review! Feel free to reach out any time you have questions for Backcountry.

    best regards,
    Ethan

    Unanswered Question

    Do these come with interchangeable lenses?

    Approach Max

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I wanted to like these glasses. The tried them on and the lenses sat on my cheeks and were not comfortable. I adjusted the nosepiece (2 position) to the smallest setting in hopes of getting a better fit but had the same problem. Quality looks good but it did not fit for me.



    PROS:

    Comes with 3 sets of lenses

    2 way adjustable nosepiece

    extra set of nosepiece rubbers

    easy lens replacement

    great matte fatigue green color.



    CONS:

    Sat on my cheeks and felt very uncomfortable.



    Sending them back.
