Smith Pivlock Arena Max ChromaPop Sunglasses
SmithPivlock Arena Max ChromaPop Sunglasses

Enter the arena.

Perhaps your event of choice is cycling rather than chariot racing and your weapon of choice is a pair of trail running shoes rather than a trident or sword, but the Smith Pivlock Arena Max ChromaPop Sunglasses will have you feeling like a victorious gladiator nonetheless. However, if you happened to bump into an ancient Roman, you'd definitely get pegged as a space-age time traveler with the super-modern wraparound silhouette, updated in the Max version to keep larger faces fully covered.

Smith's signature ChromaPop Lenses thrust the world around you into staggering color and clarity while resisting any water, oil, and dirt you encounter. With the Pivlock interchange system, you can swap lenses in a flash so you don't get caught unawares by an opponent in changing light conditions. Whether you're a pedal-pusher or pavement-grinder, you're likely to work up a sweat—but the hydrophilic nose pads and temple tips on the light, strong TR-90 frames hang on to your face like there's no tomorrow as you head into battle.

Great glasses!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently bought the Pivlock Arena, but after two rides I realized the Arena Max would be a better fit. I've been mountain biking with them all summer and could not be happier! They always stay in position and I love the chromapop lenses!

Quality lens but...

    First, the lenses are high quality. Note that the category 3 lenses worked best in full sun, even with Chromapop. To echo a previous reviewer, the pivlock mechanism seemed destined to fail; after several months, it finally did. Not sure if it was just my pair as only one of the arms had this problem. Fortunately, Backcountry was there to help out. Thanks!

    Comfort and Performance

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    These glasses are great! I just switched over to Smith after using Oakley's for years. I have to say I actually prefer the Smiths!

    I have a pretty narrow face and these fit great! The ChromaPop lenses actually work. They help keep the lighting consistent while you are dodging in and out of wooded areas while mountain biking. Not only do they perform well but they are super comfortable and lightweight.

    My only complaint is that the PivLock system is pretty fragile. Everytime I swap out lenses I feel as if I'm going to break them. The temple of the glasses lock into two small holes on the lens.

    Overall, I would recommend these glasses to anyone!
