Latest and Greatest Prescription Pit Vipers



Has the apocalypse started? Because Pit Viper is dropping new sunglass styles like there’s no tomorrow! Makes the visually impaired wonder: “What can be prescription? Which prescription inserts are interchangeable? What the heck even is a SVED Optical Rx insert?” Best we clean this up for all the eyeglass wearers out there who are wiping their lenses on their shirts as they get ready to read this thorough review. Here’s the scoop on the newest Pit Viper models to grace the internet!


Flip Offs & Lift Offs: Rx'able


Why flip up sunglasses disappeared off the face of the earth in the first place is beyond me, but boy am I glad Pit Viper brought them back! There’s just something fun about wearing your emotions on your sunglasses! For example, if you see something amazing that blows your mind, you slowly flip them up. Or maybe you’re ready to get serious, so you flip them down hard. Pit Viper Flip Offs and Lift Offs are perfect for the SVED Rx lightweight insert. The SVED Insert is mounted behind the lens so whether they are flipped up or down, you’ll still have your vision.


Prescription type: Insert

SVED Optical makes prescription rimless inserts for Pit Viper Flip Offs and Lift Offs by modifying and equipping the Pit Viper nosepiece with polycarbonate prescription lenses. Order here.


Interchangeable with:

  1. Try-Hards



The Fondue: Rx'able


Claimed as the cheesiest Pit Vipers ever made, I can neither agree nor disagree. What I can say about the Fondue is that they make a nice pair of prescription sunglasses. They’re stylish, offer nice sun coverage, and have removable side shields which could-should-and-would come in handy.


Prescription type: Lenses

The Fondue does not use an Rx insert. The lenses itself are made to be prescription by SVED Optical, a lot like Pit Viper The Exciters. Order here.



The Try-Hards: Rx'able


If we were speaking in music terms, the Pit Viper Try-Hards are an absolute banger! This might be the pair of Pit Vipers you’ve been waiting for. The Try-Hards are a unique modular style frame which means it can be modified to be full frame or semi rimless. On top of that, it comes with two lens colors for interchanging. That’s a lot of options for anyone, but especially for prescription wearers!


Prescription type: Insert

SVED Optical makes prescription rimless inserts for Pit Viper Try-Hards by modifying and equipping the Pit Viper nosepiece with prescription lenses. Order here.


Interchangeable with:

  • Flip Offs

  • Lift Offs



Pit Viper continues to bring us everything we didn’t know we needed in a pair of sunglasses. Take those sunglasses and pair them up with SVED Rx, you’ll find it incredibly hard not to enjoy wearing prescription for once in your life. That’s the rundown on the latest rx’able Pit Viper models! Prescription orders can be placed right here on svedoptical.com.

I like the specs, but you guys are too pricey to what other Internet providers offer. I'm sure you have your fan's, where price is no object. I would look into some that will fit over my current prescription glasses ,though
