Ready to go—any time, any where.
We love the Pave because Tifosi did a fantastic job giving us an eyewear option that isn't just functional for cycling -- they look stylish off the bike as well. In our minds the Pave scores a 10 fashion-wise and for riding, too, because the frames ride just a smidge below your eyebrow. This means that your vision is uninterrupted when you're chin is buried on your stem and you're on the rivet.
The Pave glasses have a fit that works best for medium to large faces. We sell it in two frame colors -- Pearl White and Matte Black. Both options come with a three sets of lenses -- Smoke for sunny days, an AC Red for overcast conditions, and Clear for low/no light conditions. The frames are made with a Grilamid TR-90 -- a nylon with exceptional bendability, strength, and toughness against impact and UV damage. Not only are they virtually indestructible, but they are super light, allowing the Pave to weigh in at an amazing 29g. Once you have them on they stay in place, too, thanks to their hydrophilic rubber adjustable temples and nose piece.
Highlights of the Pave include Tifosi's Glare Guard reflective coating to reduce glare and decrease eye fatigue. All Tifosi lenses provide 100% UVA and UVB protection, and they're ventilated for increased air flow and fog resistance. You also get a carrying case and a Microfiber lens wipe.
- Grilamid TR-90 frame has an extremely high bending strength to maximize flexibility and durability
- Hydrophilic rubber ear and nose grips resist aging and breakdown as well as increase grip when wet
- Glare Guard reflective lens coating reduces glare without compromising visibility or ability to distinguish terrain breaks
- Polycarbonate lens is highly impact resistant, and decentered design helps eliminate optical distortion

Great value, if you don't need a brand name
These are a great value in that you get decent styling and amber and clear lenses in addition to the dark sunglass lenses. You'll pay twice as much for Giro or Oakley shades and you'll have to buy the lighter tint lenses separately. Having said that, I've never seen anyone rocking Tifosi shades who wasn't a cyclist.
The two-piece lenses are definitely the way to go, I have a pair of Tifosi Slip single-piece lens shades that cracked in the middle after a year of use. And as the description says, the Pave model is for larger faces.
