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.Proposition 65 Warning for California Consumers: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
