The Tigoa polarized sunglasses from Smith combine classic, clean corners with updated eyewear technology. These sun cheaters feature a cellulose propionate frame, which is similar to acetate, only it's lighter and more temperature resistant. And of course you get Smith's amazing polarize lens technology as well, if you're not familiar with it you can read up on it below.
- 6 Base Curvature
- Cellulose Propionate
- Carbonic TLT
- Smith Polarization
- Medium Fit
6 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 6 base styles have a “flatter” look. 8-9 base curves hug closer to the face.
Cellulose Propionate - A strong, flexible frame material that is lighter than traditional acetate and more temperature resistant.
Carbonic TLT - Engineered to be the most impact resistant lens material in the world. Carbonic TLT lenses are optically corrected to maximize visual clarity and object definition resulting in zero distortion; what you see is what you get.
Smith Polarization - Smith precisely aligns the polarized visual layer inside the lenses to filter out 99.9% of this “visual static” for a finely tuned, glare-free view of the action.
These measurements include the width of the lens, the width of the bridge and the width of the arms/temples.
Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Fully polarized sunglasses reduce eye strain and help you see better around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
