    Details

    Coverage and comfort.

    The Smith Approach Max Polarized Sunglasses combine a cycling-specific design with a classic, unassuming look. The lenses house Smith's Tapered Lens Technology, which taper gradually from the optical center of the lens to straighten light waves, eliminating vision-altering light distortion. Then, Smith gave the lenses a polarized finish to reduce glare from sprawling open roads and sun-drenched lakes.

    Any cyclist knows fit is crucial when you're spending hours in the saddle laboring up winding climbs and railing down technical descents, so Smith gave the Approach Max Sunglasses a medium fit to accommodate most face sizes, but enlarged the lens profile to deliver a broader range of coverage. The nose pad can be adjusted between two different positions for a secure fit, and the slide-on temple pads grip tight to the face to reduce slipping when you're sweating it out on a steep climb. Speaking of sweat, Smith finished the lenses off with a hydroleophobic coating to keep the lenses clear in the face of sweat and oil.

    Great for active glasses

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use these as my mountain biking sun glasses and love them. The interchangeable lenses are great for different conditions and the clear kills it for keeping dust and debris out of the eyes while night riding. I haven't found anything I don;t like yet.

    Hover-glasses

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    My wife returned these because they hovered over her nose rather than rested down ON it... It was probably just because of the shape of her face though, so if these fit well, then she said they were otherwise great glasses.

    My new go-to shades.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got these to replace the discontinued Smith Factor D Max. Slightly narrower fit and these lenses are Max lenses, not D Max, so they don't cover quite as much of your face. But still enough to keep the wind off my contacts so far. Love the brown polarized lens. It's great for a huge variety of light conditions - bright winter sun, shady trail biking, driving, water applications. Plus, you don't realize it until after you go back to grey lenses, but the warm brown lens hue enhances your mood too. I almost never swap out the lenses for the clear or igniter lens. Polarized brown is pretty universal. Only down side is that there's only the one color of frame available with the polarized brown lens. I wish I could get it with a different color frame.
