Tifosi Optics has unveiled Aethon, its newest cycling sunglasses offering. The company points to the sunglasses’ wraparound, wide lenses which offer optimal unobstructed, peripheral vision for riders. As with all of Tifosi’s sunglasses, the lenses provide 100% UV protection.
For changes in light there are three sets of lenses using Tifosi’s patented Podium interchange technology. Hydrophilic rubber strategically placed on the brow, nose and the temples keeps the shades comfortably in place. Aethon includes a brow bar that can be removed for a change in weight and style. Grimalid TR-90 frames keep the glasses lightweight and durable.
Aethon comes in four colour choices. Retail prices start at US$69.95 and all sunglasses are backed by a lifetime warranty of manufacturer’s defects.
Tifosi is Italian for ‘supporter’ or ‘fan’. Its mission is to provide technically advanced eyewear to enthusiasts of all sports and outdoor activities. Tifosi adds that it ‘designs, tests and tortures’ its products to enhance sport pursuits.
