USA1 Performance Dual Pack Wins Gear Institute's Best Value Sunglasses Award

USA1 Performance Dual Pack Wins Gear Institute's Best Value Sunglasses Award

 “Solid Performance – Excellent price-value package with two sunglasses, five lenses.” – Erinn Morgan




DENVER, CO – Combining exceptional features and fantastic value, the XX2i USA1 Dual Pack charged past the competition to gain endorsement from Outdoor Magazine as their Best Value sunglasses. One full intense month of cycling, running, and hiking in Silverton and Durango, Colorado, was enough to prove the capability of these outstanding shades.


“The USA1 by XX2i Optics is a stellar value,” wrote Erinn Morgan of Gear Institute. “The five-lens kit and the frames’ interchangeable lens system give you a lot of bang for your buck.”


The win from Gear Institute comes on the heels of being named Outside Magazine’s ‘Killer Value’ in a review published just months prior. Mike Steere of Outdoor summed the Performance Dual Pack up as, “Value taken to new, unexplored extremes.”


“We’ve always known The USA1 offers a competitive edge at a price-point which can’t be beat,” remarked Paul Craig, President and Co-Founder of Running and Cycling Enterprises. “Now that we’ve been verified by two independent reviews, we have the proof. We can say with great confidence that anyone looking for performance sunglasses at a great price can find all the features they need in this pack.”


Utilizing feather-light yet highly durable grilamid, the USA1 frame combines low weight without sacrificing flexibility and strength. Adjustable nose and temple tips with gripping rubber ensure a comfortable and custom fit for every face which won’t budge, even during rigorous activity such as mountain biking or technical trail running. Shatter-resistant, wrap-designed optics ensure maximum peripheral vision.


The USA1 can be equipped as a Dual Pack with 2 frames and 5 lenses, a single Pro Racing pack (1 frame, 3 lenses) or as a single frame and lens combo. With Polarized and Polarized Reader options available, the USA1 is also fully RX-able and comes with a lifetime, bumper-to-bumper warranty, even against scratches.
