Podium™ XC Interchangeable
Podium™ XC Interchangeable Posted: 1/1/16
Reviewer: Dave Smallwood from Austin, Texas
Overall: Rated:5 stars! Comfort: Rated:5 stars! Style: Rated:5 stars!

I was looking for a pair of glasses primarily for road biking and running, hoping to find a pair that were light, fit perfectly without sliding down my nose even under very hot (sweaty) conditions, with enough ventilation so as to not fog excessively. I had been riding/running with fixed (single) lens IronMan glasses with a more enclosed frame that fog at every stop light, and were too dark for overcast skies (or for riding at night). I am very happy with these Tifosi Podium XC's - with a lens for every condition, a lightweight and secure feel, great field of view coverage and un-obstructed visibility even in an aero tuck, plus a minimal design that seems to breathe (and not fog as much as my old glasses), these are working out great. Lens changes are easy, and the accessories (case and spare lens sleeve) are great.

I just bought these and here are my observations - I am moderately qualified to review as I have had sunglasses from all of the high end folks-Ray ban, Oakley, Native, Costa etc but am not an expert. I like fit and comfortable foremost not only with sports glasses but also my casual. These are best of breed in that category. They are incredibly light and comfortable. You may construe this feel as cheap but I read it as Tifosi purposefully going for comfort. Now for the lenses. I have several pairs of Tifosi and all are very similar - I would rate as B- to average. Compared to Oakley or Costa (best of breed) they rate lower but generally have overall good quality. As to the review stating that these make things brighter, you have to realize that you really want crispness and a certain brightness as certain color ranges, glare and UV is blocked. Just darkening the light is really old school. If you look through these or Costas or Oakleys they make things more brilliant and clear not dimmer. Basically you want to cut out the light and glare that makes you squint but still have an illuminated view. This is particularly important in sports or lifestyle glasses like these that are primarily used for casual but can stand in and be you your sports pair in a pinch. As far as look, they have swagger and coolness but keep in mind, these skew to a smaller or medium sized head like me. I have a pair of the Hagen XL and damn those are some big glasses. Just keep in mind this when thinking about purchasing them because of you have a big noggin then these will probably be a bit small for you (even though Tifossi states that they can be worn from small to big heads). As far as value, good pair of glasses for about half the cost of Oakley lifestyle sunglasses and way cheaper than Costa (which my wife wears-great lenses and customer service but very expensive and geared to fishing/water activities). Hope this helps as I wanted to make sure that these did not get a bad rap because of one review.

Beautiful on the face, but not enough polarization. More of a stylish pair of sunglasses. Made well, very pretty, but I need more glare resistance. :-)

I have ordered several items from Zappos and never failed to be satisfied. These Sun-glasses are no exception. The shipping was quick and the glasses are comfortable.

This was my first time making a purchase from Zappos. It was fast and easy. Tracking my order was fast and easy. My item arrived on time. I've added Zappos to my on-line favorite list.

I absolutely love these glasses. I am a long distance runner and from the hot humid days of summer to the freezing cold winter these are my go to shades. I will for sure buy a new pair. My only disappointment was that the lenses did not wear well. The logo came off in the first month and they seemed to chip at the sides very easily. This would not deter me reordering though. Thank you, Zappos and Tifosi!

The reviews mentioned that these frames were for a narrow face. I found them to fit similar to most adult sunglasses which are wide on me. Also, I definitely felt they looked cheap.

These are very light, excellent-quality sunglasses. I bought them for my 14 year old daughter who has a smaller-than-adult face, and I was dreading the search for an appropriate polarized eyewear for her because I thought I was going to have to measure her face and then match the measurements to adult sunglasses that might fit her. These fit her perfectly, stay on her temples and ears securely and comfortably so that she forgets they're on, cut glare, and offer sun protection very effectively. As cyclists know, polarization is crucial to safe and medically protective eyewear, and these Tifosis fit the bill wonderfully. My daughter also loves the fashionable color and frame shape. She looks fantastic in them (she is brunette and fair-skinned) -- like a true cyclist! That means she probably feels like one, too. :)

I got these in the clear, and I love the way these glasses look, but unfortunately they really provided no darkening at all. I actually think everything looked brighter with these glasses and wore them outside once and found myself totally squinting. Too bad, had to send them back!

As the other reviewers note, these are really small. I do have a small face, but these seem more like kids glasses. I did like the style and quality, but had to return because of the size.

This is the first pair of sunglasses that fit my face well, and stay put when I sweat. They look great! I love them and I love them even more because of the price!

I like these because they are smaller and wrap around my face better. The adjustable temples (and nose piece) are helpful. The purple color, though, is really dark and looks more black.

I love Tifosi sunglasses! They are the comfortable, stay on well, and are great for the running and biking I do. I have had a pair just like these for several years. I was so sad when I recently lost them and so glad to find that Zappos had them! I highly recommend these for outdoor sports! And I highly recommend Zappos! I got my glasses in two days! That was a wonderful surprise.

I bought these after losing my last pair of Oakleys. I was looking for a lightweight no-slip frame for running and sports with a dark polarized lens. I was also looking for a lower priced option than the super expensive mainstream brands. The Alpe 2.0 delivered on all counts. I'm delighted with these glasses. Lightweight but not flimsy. Temple and nose pads have great grab when I'm sweating. Lens quality is fantastic. All at half the price of comparable models from the more well known brands. I'm sticking with Tifosi from now on!

My third pair of Tifosi glasses after smashing first and loosing the second. These are super comfortable and functional. Lenses provide no distortion, eyes never get tired of them. They look great too. All parts are replaceable and can be purchased online.

I liked the look of these glasses, but they were a little small for my face (you could see my eyebrows outside of the lenses). Though my face isn't large, I think these may suit someone with a smaller face. Also, they didn't seem to have the vents on the sides like the Tifosi "Optics", so I didn't think they would prevent fogging as well.

I bought these sunglasses primarily for running, as my Oakleys would often fog up during those sweaty, long runs in the heat. Though they do fog up a little, I just slide them down my nose a little (like 1/2") and those side vents really do take care of the steam! They hydrophilic ears & nose piece are also helpful for keeping them in place. I haven't had any probems with the earpieces getting caught in my hair. They are stylish and great!

This is the largest of the Podium models - the XC is smaller, and the same size, and the S is similar in width but with a smaller lens style. The fit and FOV is nice, the lenses have some noticeable distortion if you go looking for it, but in daily use it's not distracting. The AC red lens is excellent on overcast days, the clear has some blue-blocking properties, and the dark is plenty dark, though not color-correct. For the price it's tough to beat, with the included extra lenses - similar models from Smith and Oakley are twice the price, though they'd have upgraded lenses. For commuting this is a great choice.

I purchased these to add to my running "gear." I have a small head for an adult; the size of these is great. I run early in the morning; these are not so dark that I can't see before the sun fully rises but also provide great protection when the sun is fully in my face. They are light weight, don't interfere with my headphones or visor. I gave 4 stars in comfort, only because you can't adjust the nose grips and 4 stars for style only because they make me look boyish, but for necessity/overall reason I purchased these they are 5 stars.
