Description

A new way to look at interchangeable sunglasses.

All done measuring your VO2 max? Good, now slide your feather-light Tifosi Podium Interchangeable Sunglasses on and head for the winner's circle. These performance shades were designed for people who live to perform and die by the details. The lenses swap out quickly, the optics are crystal clear right down to the decentered shape of the lenses, and the nose and stem pads grip your face even when wet. If you don't win, it won't be your sunglasses' fault.

Poor durability.

Great for about 1k miles before lens snaps. Have snapped three in past year.

Love them

    Great glasses, I may have had the sweat issue sometimes, but I wore them until they died, lens changes are easy and you have full vision in them.

    Is it my uni-brow?

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

    I read several reviews on this item from different sites and now know what some of the negative reviews were talking about.

    The concept is amazing. It's quick to change out lenses and the fit is nice. The lenses go a little above your eyebrow which make it feel like you aren't wearing them...literally windows for your head, but this is its downfall.

    In short, they are entirely useless! Now I don't have bushy eyebrows, but as many reviews on other sites have said - if you're going to sweat in them, don't get them!

    When your eyebrows ,even lightly, touches these, your sweat will run down them instantly - blinding you. The first time this happened I almost "ate it" because I couldn't see while decending a very technical section of a trail.

    They sit so close to your head it's almost impossible to stop this. The Tifosi Lore are the closest I can find to these that have a top frame. I'll be returning these and trying those out.

    Changed My Mind

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Edit: One year update: Loved them at first, but, lenses snap at bridge after a while.

    Initial review: I've had every brand of sunglasses imaginable and these are, by far, my all-time favorites. Quick lens swap, great fit, fantastic coverage and fairly inexpensive. Bought them on a recommendation and glad to say it was bang-on!

    Easiest lens change ever.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The lens change process is very easy. The field of vision is great. You can see a little bit of the nose piece, but it's tolerable. Very light weight and comfortable and they stay in place while bombing down Arizona trails. Would not recommend for smaller heads, but for big melons like mine, these are great.

    I wear a small helmet. I have two pair of other biking glasses that fit fine. Do you think these would work for me?

    Michael W: Try the Podium XC model. They are the same glasses, but with slightly smaller frames. They should fit you great.
