The Smith Tempo Max Chromapop Sunglasses have a speed-oriented design that pairs well with running shoes and road bikes. The Chromapop lenses filter two specific, unwanted wavelengths of light and cause eye fatigue and color confusion in order to deliver greater definition and popping colors. The skies will look bluer, the grass greener, and the pavement will be all the more beautiful when you beat your best time. Smith made these lenses interchangeable so you can swap them out with different lenses with different tints for cloudier or sunnier conditions.
I've been a longtime fan of Smith riding glasses, they're well designed and durable, and these are no different. The photohromatic lenses are awesome for adjusting from low-light to moderately sunny days, saving the need to swap out lenses. They breathe well in heavy riding.
The rose tinted lens these glasses come with are great for mountain biking. I have a similar lens on my squad xl goggles. They make divits and ruts in the ground much easier to see. The only time i take them off is when I'm sweating so bad it keeps dripping onto the glasses. Which would make any glasses that i know of very hard to use and see out of. I can't recommend the smith rose lens enough.
I have two pairs of Smith Approach Max glasses which I use for road and mountain biking. They are great. I bought a pair of the Tempo Max glasses because I wanted a new pair. The frame and lens quality are what you would expect from Smith Optics.
Like the glasses but wish they were wider,I'm 208 lbs and these are a little narrow,I would exchange for a large size but smith seems to cater more for medium faces.Great case I must say,glasses fit into foam and keeps them from moving and also the lenses.Large case go figure lol
Use these for running and they are really nice and light. I switched to the pink lenses which are great for trail running and it also makes the world more groovy man. Yeah man, life is good.
I like these and have had several rounds of Smith glasses. Unfortunately, the interior surface of the lens developed bubbles on it. Returning for warranty service (will updated when complete).
These are simply an amazing pair of sunglasses for the active lifestyle. Use them both for road biking and running. Recommend!
Five stars for the glasses, 1.5 star for the zip case, which is huge and incredibly inconvenient.
