Tifosi Optics Expands Clarion Blue Fototec Lens Collection

May 16, 2023

The brand will offer the photochromic lens technology in three additional frame styles

Watkinsville, GA (May 16, 2023) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Tifosi Optics, the #1 selling brand of cycling eyewear in the United States, is excited to announce the expansion of its Clarion Blue Fototec Lens Collection. Clarion Blue Fototec instantly adapts to changes in ambient light conditions allowing cyclists freedom from having to change lenses mid ride. The new lens combination will be added to Tifosi’s best-selling cycling shields: Rail, Sledge, and Sledge Lite.

One of the only lenses on the market to combine mirror and photochromic technology, Clarion Blue Fototec begins nearly clear and darkens to a smoke tint with blue mirror in sunlight. The inclusion of the Clarion Blue mirror not only looks stylish, it repels moisture and sweat for clearer visibility. Clarion Blue Fototec is also Tifosi’s darkest photochromic lens option, providing 46% light transmission in low light and 13% light transmission in full sun. The lens itself is constructed out of shatterproof, scratch-resistant polycarbonate material, assuring long-time use and durability.

“Since launching with the Rail XC in February 2023, sales for the Clarion Blue Fototec lens have skyrocketed,” commented Joe Earley, Owner of Tifosi Optics. “Especially popular amongst cyclists, it was a no-brainer to offer the technology in our three best-selling cycling shields,” Earley continued.

Tifosi will incorporate Clarion Fototec into its best-selling cycling shields: Rail, Sledge, and Sledge Lite. Each frame features lightweight and durable Grilamid TR-90 frames, no-slip hydrophilic ear and nose pads, and maximum protection via an oversized shield.

Available in a Matte Black colorway, each style in the Clarion Blue Fototec Collection costs a highly affordable $79.95. The collection will launch online and through retailers on May 16, 2023. For more information, please visit: http://www.tifosioptics.com
