You’re probably already well aware that the best outdoor sports equipment, if not already in your gear shed, backpack or truck bed, can be found in a log cabin-style gear store on the northern edge of Lake Tahoe. But did you know about our impressive selection of the best sunglasses for sports and everyday use? Here’s the inside scoop on what’s hanging out behind the protective glass display cases at Tahoe Mountain Sports:
Switch Vision – Magnetic Interchangeable Lens System
|Switch Vision created the world’s first eyewear with a Magnetic Interchangeble Lens system – for unparalleled convenience, speed and ease of use: an idea born of necessity. When you bring the magnetic lenses close to the sunglasses’ frame they literally jump into place. These sunglasses allow athletes to choose the perfect lens for any lighting condition to achieve the best vision. And yes, prescription lenses are available through custom order. You may think you’ve seen this magnetic system before… are you familiar with Anon ski and snowboard goggles? Switch wanted to focus all their energy on sunglasses, so instead of also creating goggles they sold their magnetic interchangeable lens design to Anon Optics.|
