I just returned
from the Summer Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt
Lake City, where a few new products captured my
attention and admiration.

The practically
weightless, sleek and stealthy Pivlock V90 shades from Smith Optics are a multi-sport
athlete’s dream come true. The Pivlock V90’s standout feature is its easily
interchangeable, rimless one-piece lens. The rim-free lens allows for an
expanded field of view, while the temple and nose pieces twist off for a quick
shift of lens style. I’m particularly excited to try the Ignitor, a rose-colored
lens option which highlights shadows and increases depth perception in a
variety of light conditions – perfect for the shadiest twists and turns of
trail running. I’m also looking forward to using these glasses when I ride my
triathlon bike, as the aerodynamic tri position often finds me staring straight
into the rim of more traditional optics.

A soft material at
the tips of the Pivlock V90 temple and nose pieces ensures a snug and comfortable
fit. The lenses are specially coated to reduce dirt and sweat build-up,
allowing for clear visibility from start to finish of my workout. With a
fluidly feminine lens shape balanced against technologically tricked-out style,
what’s not to love about these brilliant new shades?
