Never Lose Sight of Your Goals

You’re a hard charger who loves the thrill of going fast. With that intensity, you can’t have anything in the way of your line of sight. Whether you’re bombing MTB trails, training for a marathon, or anything in between, the right pair of sunglasses allow you to function at your peak. Regardless of what you’re an athlete in, you can’t risk your vision being interrupted. From powerful UV rays to the dirt you kick up on the trail, sports sunglasses are absolutely necessary to keep you focused.
Sports sunglasses function differently than your typical shades, promoting optimum visibility in a range of conditions. Polarized sport sunglasses are the cutting edge in athletic eyewear, and are preferred by amateurs and professionals alike. These lenses are treated with a chemical that filters out different bands of light, softening the distracting ones and amplifying the good ones. This is especially the ...case with light that reflects off horizontal surfaces. Snow, water, and bright surfaces all change the direction of UV rays, and when they come in contact with your eyes they can easily blind you. Polarized sunglasses only allow vertical light to pass, providing you with crystal-clear vision.
