Ever wonder how Tifosi Optics got started? And how they’ve grown against the juggernauts like Oakley, Smith and more? And outlasted efforts from Giro and Specialized to enter the cycling sunglasses game?

It’s all here in this episode, where Tyler interviews co-founder Joe Earley about how he and his wife launched and have grown Tifosi into one of the largest sunglasses brands in specialty retail.
