Through the BibRave and XX2i Optics partnership, I was given the opportunity to test the brand new Bermuda1 lifestyle sunglasses before they even become available for sale! Another reason I love being a BibRave Pro!
Designed with top athletes in mind, XX2i Optics crafts precision sunglasses that offer performance while being more budget-friendly than competitors. With multiple style and lens configurations available, XX2i provides a range of sport and now casual sunglasses to choose from. The brand has its history in endurance sports and are owned by the same company that distributes Rudy Project in North America, Running and Cycling Enterprises (“RACE”) (source: RACE).
- Polarized lenses with 4K optical technology
- Available in classic Matte Black, Matte Tortoise, White & Black, and Crystal Black
- 365-day money back guarantee and a lifetime frame and lens warranty – even against scratches
Style and Fit: The frames were just slightly wide for my face width, but I would rather have my frames a tad too wide than too tight. There are very lightweight so I was able to wear them over my eyes and pushed up on top of my head for several hours without enduring any headaches.This is the first time I’ve selected sunglasses without trying them on first, so I was a little apprehensive about how the style would look on me and fit my face. But the wayfarer style seems to be universally flattering as a lot of my fellow BibRave Pros look great in them. Check out how great Amy, Brie and Jen look!
Polarization: Polarized lenses are coated with a special film that helps reduce and neutralize glare, which helps you see objects more clearly and reduces the harmful effects of UVA and UVB light. I solely wear polarized lenses now, so I was very glad these have polarized lenses. I haven’t worn a pair of blue lenses before, and interestingly enough I found they occasionally cast a yellow-ish tint when worn in low light conditions.
Value: The rest of XX2i’s line ranges from $59.99 to $99.99, so I’m assuming the Bermuda1 will fall within the same retail price range. When I received the Bermuda1 sunglasses, they came carefully packaged along with a soft bag that also doubles as a microfiber cleaning cloth, a very sturdy protective case, and a sunglass strap. That’s a great deal within the price point!
The bottom line:
These sunglasses are lightweight and very comfortable. The style is a bit more fun and funky than other casual sunglasses I have and I enjoy having a more funky style to choose from. They scream “summer” to me, so I’m looking forward to continuing to wear them as it continues to heat up.
