Tifosi Launches Tactical Line

As a cyclist I have used Tifosi glasses for a long time. They are comfortable and work really well. Having a rated safety lens is important when you are riding on a road with cars that can shoot a rock up in your face.

I have actually broken a lens by getting hit by a rock that came from a car tire. The Tifosi lens saved my eye from certain destruction. Now making a tactical line I have no doubt the are well made and just as good as their cycling line.

 WATKINSVILLE, GA – Tifosi Optics, Inc., a leader in sport optics for cycling, running, and golf, has launched a brand new website, tifositactical.com, to showcase its new line of eyewear designed for Law Enforcement and Shooting Sports.

“Our new website is dedicated to those who work in public safety and shooting sports enthusiasts,” stated Erin Dahlquist, Tifosi Optics’ Marketing Director, “We now have a site that focuses on our line of tactical eyewear, its features and benefits, and where to purchase them.”

The new website joins Tifosi Optics’ corporate site, tifosioptics.com, which showcases the cycling, running, golf, and Rx collections. The sites include links to one another. Tifositactical.com focuses on the tactical collection, including technical information, where to buy, lens changing instructions, small parts information, and more.

The Tifosi Tactical collection is available in a single lens option or an interchangeable option with 3 lenses. All meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1 safety standards for:

• Impact, both the frame and the lenses

• Optical Clarity

• Eye Coverage

Frames are made from Grilamid TR-90NZZ, which has a very high degree of impact strength, and lenses are manufactured with a shatterproof polycarbonate material to meet Z87.1 safety standards. The lenses included with the interchangeable model include:

• Smoke, a multi-purpose lens that performs well in full sun conditions

• HC Red, for increased contrast in sunny-to-cloudy conditions

• Clear, for indoor, low light, and night time use

All three models in the Tactical Collection are available in non-reflective black matte frames and come with a protective zippered case, cleaning bag, and limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. The interchangeable models retail for $69.95 and single lens models for $49.95.

Tifosi products are available at over 5,000 retail locations in 38 countries, as well as online at dozens of e-tailers. Tifosi Optics, Inc. was founded in 2003 and has become a leading manufacturer of technologically advanced, value-oriented sports eyewear.

    Checking amazon, they’re priced decently. I’d like to see some slightly less “kewl” looking designs, something a little less I HAVE A GUN! I like the other mfgs like Smith have their normal frames available with the ballistic lenses.

    After reading this review awhile back and owning some for myself, I doubt I’ll switch away from Smith Elite/Tactical/Ballistic any time soon.

    Z87.1 is ANSI spec. IMO,for shooting sports you really want MIL-PRF-31013.

    • I agree… But really, for shooting sports, Z87.1 will work just fine. Where I prefer to have a MIL-PRF-31013 lens is in shooting classes, competition or running and gunning when there is a lot more going on. Static bench shooting at the range? Z87.1 will do.

      Personally I am running Oakley M-Frame 3.0s for all of my shooting sports needs.

        True, I do have a bunch of Z87’s rattling around in my tool box and they are just fine. but I’m a lefty so having that ejection port staring me right in the eye makes me err on the side of caution.
