A few weeks ago the sunglasses I had been using while riding finally had to be tossed after I lost one of the nose pieces. The nose piece had been coming off a lot but I kept putting it back on. Well, it finally came off and I didn’t notice until after my ride so there’s no telling where it ended up. That left me in need for a new pair of riding sunglasses.

A couple of days later I received an email from Chase at BTB Sunglasses asking if I’d like to review a pair of their shades. What a coincidence. I said sure Chase sent me a pair of my choosing.

About BTB Sunglasses

BTB Sunglasses started in the basement of Steve and Jo Brown a few years ago. Every night Steve and his wife Jo would sit downstairs tagging and bagging sunglasses in preparation for shipment. Their sales steadily grew and they now offer sunglasses for several sports including cycling, golf, hiking, fishing and motor sports. BTB Sunglasses have become known for their incredible lens quality, durability, comfortable fit and low price.

BTB Sunglasses is a part of a bigger whole and is one of the divisions of Be the Ball, Inc. located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Be the Ball, Inc. support numerous causes and athletic events. A portion of every sale from our website goes to the Be the Ball Foundation.

After browsing through the selection on their website, I picked out their BTB 910 which is a 3/4 frame design with vented lenses.

BTB 910 Features

I selected the BTB 910 to review because I like a 3/4 frame design and wanted the vented lenses. The BTB 910 comes with a crystal black frame and smoked lenses. Here are some of the features listed on the BTB Sunglasses site:

  • 100% optic clarity (De-centered lens)
  • HD (High Definition) Lens Technology
  • Complete UVA & UVB protection
  • Frames are made from high grade Poly-carbonate & designed using an 8 to 10 Base Curve
  • A “Formed Fit” for comfort
  • Temples & Nosepieces are made from a hypo-allergenic material and coated with an Anti-Bacterial agent for heavy perspiration environments
  • Exceed ANSI, OSHA & Military Impact Specifications
  • BTB Sport Optics Lenses are “Ballistic” rated
  • I can list specs all day long but nothing tells a story like a video. Check out this promotional video. The 22 rifle and shotgun tests are amazing.

    When my BTB 910 sunglasses arrived I was surprised to find an extra lens in the box. The extra lens appears to have been shot at and it’s still intact. Including that lens in the box was a nice touch and proof of the durability claims.

    I’ll get a few rides in these sunglasses before I post a full review. In the meantime you should check out BTB Sunglasses.
