THE FACTS:
TIFOSI Technically advanced optics/sunglasses were designed for active people who live an aggressive lifestyle. However, they are also extremely stylish if you choose to just relax outdoors while watching a sporting event, enjoying the sun at the beach, boating, etc. TRIFOSI’S metal-frame glasses, for instance, feature a rugged nickel titanium alloy construction, highlighted with a memory feature that allows the glasses to return to their original shape when strained.

The glasses fit as if they were “custom engineered for your face, with designs that are sleek, sporty and angled look versus the big, boxy or round designs you see on the market. Adjustable temple and nose- pieces plus the stay-fit ear pad allow customers to create the perfect fit, and the construction helps hold tight even when you’re sweating. They range toward the smaller side as you may want to check your fit precisely if your face/head size runs to the larger end of the anatomical spectrum.

TIFOSI glasses, come in a single-lens or multi-lens set-up. The Tyrant multi-lens model — “interchange” as Tifosi calls the category — comes with three lenses: clear, smoke (gray) and AC red. These are good choices, fitting almost all conditions that cyclists might encounter. The lenses themselves are shatter-resistant polycarbonate, with glare reducer providing 100 percent UVA and UVB protection.

TIFOSI Fototec glasses are sold with lenses that adjust automatically as light conditions change. You can either get these in a complete pair of sunglasses as a single-lens set-up, or order the Fototech lenses separately, and include them in the choices you have for your interchangeable set of glasses.

POLARIZED SUNGLASSES. Glare, simply defined, is reflected light that travels on a horizontal plane. It doesn’t matter whether you’re hunting, hiking, fishing, cycling or just walking down the street, the sun’s waves are being reflected off everything from pavement to snow, which creates glare in your vision. This is where the effect of TIFOSI’S technically advanced polarized sunglasses are so important, working as a filter to only let in the natural light needed to experience the world with sharp, crisp, glare free clarity and vision.
TIFOSI polarized sunglasses are made with a layer of injected polarized material, not just a “polarized coating” used by some other manufacturers that rubs off or fades over time. Polarized lenses are designed to reflect light, reduce glare, and enhance color, making them perfect for water and snow activities or anytime you can expect the sun to reflect off the road. Each polarized lens blocks 100% of harmful UV rays as lens tints are designed to eliminate glare, enhance color and offer total UV protection.
For hunters and Law Enforcement TIFOSI also manufactures technical shooting glasses that meet or exceed Z87.1 Safety Standards, with the Ordnance earning Mil-Spec Certification. Most models are tested and recommended by the National Tactical Officers Association for their shatterproof lenses and durable Grilamid TR-90 NZZ frames. For extra versatility, try the Interchange models that come equipped with three sets of lenses, each optimized for different lighting conditions.

Story:
I literally spend hundreds of hours “outdoors” each year on a variety of adventures such as attending sporting events to guiding hunters in both high altitude and desert environments. I backpack, fish, and engage in multiple water sports, etc, where I need all the protection I can get for my eyes to safeguard them from the elements! There’s no doubt that “quality sunglasses” help make your eyes more comfortable by reducing brightness and glare. But even when it’s not bright daylight, a outstanding pair of sunglasses will adjust to low-light conditions while protecting your eyes from flying debris. In these situations, there are THREE FEATURES that sunglasses need AND TIFOSI OPTICS FEATURE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING: durability, fit/comfort and quality of optics.
One of my expectations with the sunglasses I wear is that they be capable of protecting my eyes from the glare and damage caused by the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays! They also must safeguard my eyesight from wind, dust, debris, insects, and other potentially dangerous objects. I can still recount and vividly remember a hunting trip years ago when I was bushwacking through a thick pinion juniper forest and accidentally ran into a branch. One of the small, dry limbs impaled me in the side of my eye. It was a small miracle that I was able to get off the mountain to a doctor who removed the stick without causing any vision impairment whatsoever to my eyesight. After that “learning experience” I always wear eye protective sunglasses whenever possible. Of course, it is always nice when you find a pair of sunglasses LIKE TIFOSI that are stylish and fit comfortably also.
When I was introduced to TIFOSI’S wide spectrum of sunglasses I was immediately attracted to their stylish lenses, frames and cutting edge technology.
However, “stylish” does not necessarily always translate into a particular sunglass fitting properly as well as protecting your eyes! Trifosi’s sunglasses however, have fit my head perfectly, felt very comfortable, and I appreciate the fact that they come in a variety of various colored frame that will fit your particular individual life style.
I have been extremely impressed with how clear Trifosi’s Optically Decentered Lens Technology has prevented distortion when I have been out in the field with the polarized lenses in these glasses providing me with crisp, clear vision. The vented lenses help in preventing fogging and importantly provide 100% protection from harmful UV A and UVB rays.

I have noted that the HYDROPHILIC RUBBER EAR AND NOSE PIECES on my Trifosi have given me the “firm grip” I need while sweating. I also appreciate the fact that the nose pieces are adjustable for a customized fit and the Grilamid TR-90 Frame is extremely light and durable.

Tifosi sunglasses

I’ve worn and field-tested these glasses in a variety of different environments/circumstances such as hunting in extreme desert conditions and hiking in high altitude where the glare from snow can be a real issue. I’ve also worn these glasses for style and at sporting events, while on vacation, driving, or when attending casual social occasions. Upon purchasing a pair of sunglasses you receive a very nice hard case and Lens Kit. Nice quality. Tifosi Optics is a mid-range eyewear maker targeting the outdoor enthusiast, whether the activity is cycling, golf, tennis or some other sport where good vision is important. Its glasses are very affordable and stylish, selling for about $70 to $90.
In my opinion Trifosi designs that are not only ascetically pleasing but are versatile enough for wearing anywhere. Warranty’s and service are very important to me and Trifosi Sunglasses are backed by an outstanding Warranty Program as follows:
