Disclaimer: I received a pair of XX2i Hawaii 1 Sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!
I’ve been wearing the USA1 glasses since December and I really like them, they are lightweight, comfortable and polarized. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen me wearing them for the last few months. And you can read my review of them here.
I’ve also got a pair of the new casual Bermuda1 glasses, which have the best lenses, but aren’t quite as comfortable as the USA1 & Hawaii1.
What is special about the Hawaii1?
From the XX2i website: Carbon fiber and Polarized 8k optics combine in XX2i’s new Hawaii1 performance sunglasses. Extremely lightweigh & easily adjustable the Hawaii1 instantly adapts for any face shape or activity. Together with a completely bendable nose piece and rubber temple arms, these shades won’t budge or slide when you need to keep your focus.
They come in 3 different colors, white, which I have, black & tortoise. The white & black have polar grey lenses while the tortoise have the awesome polar brown, which I have on the Bermuda1.
What I like about these glasses, they are super lightweight. I didn’t have to make any adjustments at all to make them fit perfectly.
Another nice thing about these is that the bottom of the lens doesn’t have a frame around it so I can look down and see my phone without having to take off my glasses (in light other than direct sunlight).
The only complaint I have about these is the little rubber pieces on the arms. They get stuck in my hair especially when it’s wet and sweaty. I’ve figured out a way to take them off without pulling out my hair now, but that was a bit of a problem for me at first.
Even with the hair pulling issue, I feel like I would reach for the Hawaii1 9x out of 10 over any other pair of glasses.
The Hawaii1 retails for $124.99 but you can save 50% by using the code XX2iRocks.
And if you join #BibChat tomorrow at 6pm Pacific, you might have a change to win a pair for yourself. I promise you will love them.
