Bolle Tetra Sunglasses
The Bolle Tetra sunglasses are basically classic black shades from a company who specializes in high-performance eye wear. They feature premium, coated polycarbonate lenses, durable nylon frames and moisture-absorbing rubberized contact points that keep the glasses in place in adverse conditions.
Designed for a medium sized face, the Tetra are comfortable and provide adequate coverage without noticeably hindering my peripheral vision. I chose the polarized lenses, and true to form they’re excellent in bright light. One interesting thing about polarized lenses is that they make it difficult to see LCD displays.
Compared to sport-specific eye wear, the Tetra glasses don’t vent especially well, and are somewhat more prone to fogging up than the glasses designed with elite road racers in mind. The trade off is that these actually look good when you step off the bike, too.
The Tetra sunglasses retail for $69, the polarized version retails for $99. Visit www.bolle.com for more info.
