    I race triathlons professionally and these are my go to in training and racing. I like the extra coverage/size of the Max version for time trial biking. When you're in the TT position with the head down and trying to look up, there is still lens coverage. With most shades, when I'm in that position, the top of the lens cuts my field of vision. These eliminate that problem. They're also very light and flexible. I was racing with the first edition Pivlock and those were fantastic. The improvement of the V2 is that the nose tightness is adjustable and the lenses are easier to swap out. For TT riding I like to keep the nose extra tight so the lens sits a bit further from my face so sweat stays away from the lens. I usually travel to races with 3 lens options. They're so easy to swap out that I can make a decision race morning of how sunny it will be that day and choose a lens accordingly.

    I ride early mornings all year round in the Chicago area. I need something to keep my eyes from watering in the early morning cool/cold. These did not do the trick. My eyes teared like an open water faucet, making it more difficult to see in the darkness with just a bike light to follow. On the plus side they never seem to fog up. I like the orange frames but the nose piece is white and reflects on the lens thus creating eye fatigue. But I like the versatility in the nose piece. If only they could perform as well as they're supposed to...

    Quatre mois d'utilisation intense et encore sous le charme !!

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    Je recherchais des lunettes et je suis tombé sur ce petit bijoux, tout me plaisait, le prix, la technologie, le design, les différents verres et l'étui fournit avec ! Etant plutÃ't polyvalent, j'ai trimbalé ces lunettes partout avec moi et dans beaucoup de discipline (ski de fond, VTT, trail, ski alpin, running, ...) en adaptant à chaque fois les verres aux conditions climatiques. Recherchant une protection maximale, j'ai opté pour les PivLock V2 Max qui couvre vraiment bien les yeux, sourcils comprit et c'est parfait, elles ne font pas trop grosse. Attention toutefois, choisissez bien car comme elles sont larges et hautes, ce modèles ne convient pas à tout le monde ( surtout les femmes :/) mais il y a 3 autres tailles plus petite de ce modèle alors ... :) Elles sont vraiment légère et très agréable à porter. Bref elles sont parfaites !!! n'hésitez pas une seule seconde, vous en serez comblé et votre portefeuille aussi !

    Its like they aren't even there. You cannot see the frame or nose piece at all. I also have had no fog problems that I usually have with other brands.

    The mil spec kits got my attention. Shooter glasses beyond compare. But what about style?

    By 

    from Kentucky

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    I bought these V2 max in impossibly black. There is no equal. Three different lenses for any light condition are presented in a very attractive "safe case." In each instance, these lenses increased visibility, by substantially filtering out certain spectrums of Light in any condition. The lenses are also highly scratch resistant, and less likely to shatter than any brand I have ever worn. I used to freak if I dropped my glasses. Now? Not so much. They'll be fine. Replacement lenses are not expensive. The frames are pliable and TOUGH. The shield type shape of the lenses are not exactly the epitome of modern style, but the shape has proven superior in extreme conditions. I think the PivLock series does a great job in bridging the gap between looks and hard core eye protection.

    Great cycling glasses

    By 

    from Redwood City, CA, USA

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    I have been using the PivLock V2 Max for over a year now and have been extremely pleased with them. I use the adjustable nose width to keep them further from my face when I'm sweaty and need more ventilation. Then I often click them closer in when I'm descending and want less sunlight exposure and shadowing on the lens. Mine came with 3 lenses and I love the options. The intermediate lens is great when there is some sun as it helps prevent reflections from my face behind the lens from impacting my view. The dark lens is great when it's super sunny, and the clear is good when it's all covered riding without sun. I wanted something between the clear and intermediate and ordered the photochromic lens and it's awesome spanning a wider range of use!

    Solid Set of Glasses

    By 

    from Tulsa, OK, USA

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    I wear a size 8 hat and have large facial features. I was looking for a pair of glasses that were rugged enough for a bit of abuse and large enough to give me coverage I normally don't get with standard Oakleys or similar brands. I think for the price these should offer polarized lenses. I've been very pleased with size, fit, weight and UV protection. The one complaint I have is that any sweat rolls down my face is going to end up on the inside of the lens due to the large lens surface area and wind blockage. But that is in the end what I was looking for so I shouldn't be surprised.

    Excellent coverage for road cycling especially for long downhill runs

    By 

    from Glendale, CA 95519, USA

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    Great style. Super clear view through the lens. Large lens but not too large - does not rest on cheeks but still provide full coverage - no wind issues in the eyes on fast long descents (40+mph). Very comfortable with nice snug, nonslip fit. Lens currently hydrophobic - at least for 2 weeks now.

    These are hands down the most comfortable, and classiest looking cycling glasses on the market. I was hesitant to believe the hype, but now after a month of owning them I cant recommend the enough.

    Our Hagens Berman-Society Consulting cycling team races exclusively with Smith glasses. We love the Pivlock V2 for its high quality lenses, comfortable fit and great design. They even look fast! The Ignitor lens is superb on overcast Seattle days.

    You'll forget you that you are wearing sunglasses!

    By 

    from Scottsdale, AZ, USA

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    Best sunglasses I have ever used while cycling. Light weight, excellent fit, and distortion free vision - I sometimes forget I have them on. These are also the first glasses or goggles where I don't have a problem with sweat dripping down across the lenses. I'm not sure why - maybe the frameless design which keeps the sunglasses from touching my face. They are unbeatable in the middle of the day, but polarized lens would be nice for early morning or late afternoon.

    Excellent Sport Sunglasses

    By 

    from Saint Paul, MN

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    I have been using these sunglasses for a year now for various sports mainly road cycling, but also nordic skate skiing, roller skiing and running. They protect your face well in windy and cold conditions, plus they do not fog. I like having different lenses for bright sunny cycling and skiing conditions. Also clear lenses when cloudy and or night conditions. The fit and quality of the glasses are excellent. I have V2 Max model and it was the right size for me and never thought the lenses were too big. I highly recommend these V2 Max sport glasses for their function in varies temperatures and price.

    Pivock V2's have been the best all around pair of eye protection I have ever purchased!

    By 

    from Berkeley, CA

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    PivLock V2's are hands down the best pair of cycling glasses I have every owned. A variety of functional lenses, ease of changing lenses are great features. I have always had problems with watering eyes on descents and sweat dripping onto the the lenses when time trialing and all of these issues are now non existent. I will have to say that Oakley offers more "style and bling" but when it comes to function (which should be the bottom line) the PivLocks are hands down winners.

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    I love my PivLock glasses, have been riding/racing in them for 2 years now. I was expecting to replace them at the end of last year but since they held up so well I rocked them for another year! Same lenses and frame, top notch quality and performed well enough to put me on the podium in some pretty horrible conditions this year. Couldnt have done it without my PivLocks. Highly recommend these sunglasses if you are in the market.

    Not Happy!!

    By 

    from Irvine, CA 92603

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    Yesterday I made the mistake of purchasing a new pair of Smith Pivlock V2 Max glasses from my local bike store. When I stopped by my local bike store to purchase a new pair of glasses for cycling; The store clerk convinced that I would be happier with a pair of Smith's. After shelling out the unreasonable amount of $171.67 for a pair of Smith Pivlock V2 Max I was anxious to go for a ride and try out my new glasses. I didn't own the glasses for more than 2 hours when I discovered a nice scratch across the front of the lens. Right is the center of the glass. For the life of me I can't determine how or why my brand new glasses were scratched so soon and so easily. Apparently the product you make will scratch if you merely look at the lens or if you attempt to wear the sunglasses. What a joke

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith PivLock V2 Max Sunglasses, White:

    I have put a hurting on my pair of Piv Lock glasses. I have thrown everything at them, mud, blood, sweat, sand, pouring rain and rocks nothing seems to slow them down. I still don't have a scratch on them. I have had some hard crashes also and they never even moved from my face. I really think these will withstand anything! Smith Optics rock!
