Product Review: Tifosi Optics Podium XC

Tifosi Optics may have started with an eye on cycling, but has made a major splash in the world of golf. Whether you’re racing down the road on two wheels or standing on the 18th tee with water to the left and out of bounds encroaching on the right, you need performance eyewear and Tifosi delivers.

Take the Podium XC, for example. Made from a homopolyamide nylon characterized by an extremely high alternative bending strength, low density and high resistance to chemical and UV damage, they’re ideal for the golf course.

Sweat when the heat is on? Don’t worry. The hydrophilic rubber ear and nose pieces offer a no-slip fit. Both ear and nose pieces are adjustable for a customizable, comfortable fit, as well.

The lens makes the eyewear, though. The Podium XC boast interchangeable decentered shatterproof polycarbonate lenses that virtually eliminate distortion, give sharp peripheral vision and offer 100 percent protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays, bugs, rocks, or whatever comes your way. And lens installation/removal is fast and easy.

While swapping lenses is ideal to move between sports, we’re talking about golf and the  GT lens enhances your game. Whether spotting the ball in flight or reading the contrasts in the green without battling the sun’s glare, you’ll appreciate what Tifosi has to bring on the course.

Tifosi offers all the benefits of the leading performance eyewear without the hefty sticker price that often accompanies top-shelf brands. Check them out for yourself at
