Tifosi polarized sunglasses

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tifosi polarized sunglasses

Anyone have them? How do you like them?

Looking for a good set of polarized ones for under $100...

I have a pair of Tifosi Ventoux’s. They're fine for the price. I think I paid $60 for them at REI. The quality of the plastic frames are not as good as what you'll find on more expensive pairs. And the lenses seem to be of fair quality. As an optometrist I can tell you that they are as safe and effective as glasses come. They're just not a luxury model. I had a pair of Native’s which I think had a little better frame quality and optics, but cost more at $129.

I have the Pave's with the red tint changing lens. love them. Always looks the same if it's bright or cloudy. I also like they don't have a bottom frame. gives a bit more visibility looking down at my computer and back at my cassette. (tho they are not polarized)
