XX2i: Hawaii1 and Bermuda1 Review

If you haven’t heard about XX2i, no worries. However, you’ve probably seen their performance sunglasses already in some sporting or just on a casual event but just didn’t recognize it. XX2i is a new line of performance sunglasses brought to the market by R.A.C.E. (Running and Cycling Enterprises),


XX2i was created to offer unparalleled value and technology at an affordable price to athletes and weekend warriors alike. Since its launch, XX2i products have received numerous awards including the Gear Institute's "Best Value” award and Outside Magazine's "Killer Value” award. XX2i employs the latest polarized and 4K optical technology, providing the same amazing quality seen on products three times their cost.

XX2i sent me two of their latest products that just hit the market a week ago. The Hawaii1 and Bermuda1.

Comfort and Functionality
Hawaii1 Matte White
The Hawaii1 is XX2i’s latest performance oriented sunglass, featuring a top of the line carbon frame built for any athletic endeavor. The Hawaii1 comes standard with polarized lenses that employ 8K optical technology, ensuring the utmost frame durability and lens clarity for any kind of outdoor training and racing. A fully adjustable nosepiece combined with rubber temple tips make the Hawaii1 ideal for any face shape, and ensure these shades don’t budge or slide.

The first thing I noticed when I put it on was its lightness. I never had a sunglass this light before and it felt that there’s basically nothing touching my face. I’m very particular when it comes to the frame especially the temple ends that could sometimes create a pressure points. This sunglass is so comfortable and never did I experience any tightness and numbness on that area. I tested this on one of my “runch” (it’s a run during lunch time) with a temperature above 900F and high humidity. The Hawaii1 held up pretty good! It didn’t fog up even though the lens doesn’t have the vent holes on it. The polarized lens with 8K technology was amazingly clear, it gave me the true picture of my surroundings and the ability to block the bright sunlight that was hitting my eyes. There are some sunglasses that could distort (bend) the surroundings and would create a tunnel vision…not the Hawaii1, it gives a clear depth of the environment. This is one important safety features that XX2i implemented on their sunglasses since athletes train and race on some very fast pace events.


The Hawaii1 comes in four varieties; Matte Black, Matte Tortoise, Matte White; and the Polarized Sport. The Hawaii1 is a piece of gear that will give you the edge to crush the competition. 

Bermuda1 Matte Black
The Bermuda1 is XX2i’s first casual model. It is the ultimate go-to sunglass that goes easy on your wallet. The Bermuda1 is the perfect accessory for any adventure, whether that is a trip to the beach or a quick walk with the dog. Using the same advanced materials as XX2i’s performance models, the Bermuda1 comes standard with polarized lenses that employ 4K optical technology, ensuring the utmost frame durability and lens clarity. 

This is my new everyday casual sunglass, from driving around to just a normal stroll around my neighborhood, it’s my “grab and go” and favorite so far. The lens is employed with 4K technology for better clarity of the surroundings and the ability to block bright sun light. I love that it’s so easy maintain and very fashionable (according to my better half). I’m not really into fashionable stuff but my wife loves how it looks on me…with the approval like that, how can I go wrong?


The Bermuda1 comes in four varieties of colors: Crystal Black, Matte Black, Matte Tortoise, and Matte White & Black. A sunglass that is both highly functional and fashionable…that’s the Bermuda1.

My Verdict
XX2i is a company that takes pride and stand behind their products. They know for a fact that high quality materials are infused on their products and they never doubted that it will last for a life time. Building a strong relationship with the consumers is one of their key priorities and they want to insure that you are completely satisfied with your purchase. They know that it takes some time to get comfortable on sunglasses so they offer the “365-days return policy”. Yup, 365 days if you want to keep them and if you think that it’s not working for you, send them back for a full refund. To top it off, they even have a “No questions asked” LIFETIME WARRANTY! even if you scratch or break them.

I’m very pleased with these sunglasses and highly recommend that you give them a try. Both of these sunglasses comes with a hard case, soft microfiber bag and a cord. You can purchase these directly on their website and while you’re in there, check out some of their performance sunglasses as well. The Hawaii1 sells for $124.99 and the Bermuda1 sells for $99.99. They offer killer deals with their replacement (add on) lens too. With these prices so low and reasonable, there are no reasons why you shouldn’t feel great and look great!
