Lightweight, Easily Swappable Lens design, the Smith Pivlock offers up great protection and style.
Smith Optics has been designing all types of action sports eye protection since 1965 when they Bob Smith created their first ski goggles to fill a significant void in a growing market.
In conjunction with the USA Pro Challenge, which kicked off in Aspen, Colo., this week, POC introduced a full line of brightly adorned road gear intended not only to minimize the impacts of road bike accidents but to also prevent incidents by making cyclists “more visible across all spectrums.”
Hip Swedish Design Paired with the latest in Cranial Protection
The latest innovation from POC sees the integration of the MIPS (multi-directional impact system) into a few of the company’s top-selling helmets. The MIPS system is designed to greatly reduce potential brain trauma from a cranial impact.
Keep your Dome Safe with Giro's New Trail Oriented Offering

Stylish, Comfortable, and Reasonably priced. Tifosi hits them all with the Mast.
Finding a versatile pair of shades functional enough for the trail but stylish enough for that after ride beer can be a task, especially on a budget. But sunglass manufacturer Tifosi, has continued to impress with their well priced line of sport specific glasses. But these budget specs pack the punch of many higher priced glasses on the market, while doing so for well under $100.
Because helmets are only beneficial while they are mounted on top of your head, fit and comfort are key. Giro's new Xar is a great example of a good looking and great fitting piece of protection.
Sub 260 Grams, 18 Whopping Vents, and Italian Comfort Price: $224 When I think great Italian design, I picture Ferrari’s and Forzieri’s: sexy sports cars and fine leather shoes. Add Rudy Project helmets to that list.
Feathery, comfy and stylish. Giro proves that a light helmet can also mean a comfortable and good looking one with their new Prolight
Cycling specific eye-wear is an essential part of any rider’s kit, as pesky debris, wind, and UV rays will take their toll on unprotected peepers. So, when the chance to see what was behind the BBB Winners, came along, I pounced.
When you live in the mountains at 7,000 feet, you have to wear sunglasses. Shoot, these days, everybody needs shades wherever they live. But, being from the Midwest, I was too stubborn to believe that when I moved up here closer to the sun. I spent years riding with sunglasses that were too dark to ride at dawn or dusk, sunglasses that blinded me with glare when the sun dared to change angles and sunglasses that just didn’t fit well.
Lightweight, great cooling system and a terrific adjustable retention system: what else could you want from a high-end helmet
Slipstreamz is an interesting little product that allows riders to enjoy music from their MP3 players without losing the ability to hear someone behind them screaming “rider back!” or deftly avoiding catastrophe when the lead rider in a group makes note of a coiled pit viper with a startled, garbled, breathy string of expletives.
If you haven’t kept up with the pace of change in sunglass technology, you might look into it. Your eyes and your head will appreciate it.
I never thought I’d say this but there is currently a lot of innovation going on in the world of sunglasses and I’m not talking about bringing back Frank Poncherellos sweet mirrored aviators.
