Julbo : An innovative brand developing its own technologies
Trek Over the past ten years Julbo has seen great growth with innovative, technical products and is a reference brand for quality sports sunglasses, and an acknowledged leader in children's sunglasses. Julbo became part of mountaineering history by proposing the first glasses for use on glaciers. Since then Julbo has been working with highly demanding sports men and women to develop lenses that are perfectly suited to each type of use.
The brand's own concept developers and designers work in collaboration with Team Julbo athletes such as Ueli Steck and Glen Plake who provide feedback for the development and refinement of the products. With such collaborative assistance, Julbo generates innovations each year, developing new frame concepts to meet new sporting requirements. Julbo draws on its experience and expertise to select the best materials and lens coatings – anti-reflective, ant-fogging, water repellent finishes etc. to create exclusive, high performance lenses. All Julbo eyewear meets European, American and Australian standards.
CLOSING SOON! Lyon Outdoor are currently running a competition to win one of four pairs of Julbo sunglasses.
More info on Julbo lens technology can be found at www.julbo-eyewear.com/en/.
To complement the existing range of mountaineering specific sunglasses Julbo now has two new models:
Fast and Light: The new Trek provides optimum performance while moving fast in extreme environments by providing highly technical, yet lightweight eyewear. For those committed to the outdoors via mountaineering, climbing and trail running, the Trek is the perfect combination of technical features, lightweight performance, and ergonomics. Detachable shields block lateral rays and intense glare as well as offering superior ventilation when necessary. Julbo's Flex Nose design and 360° adjustable temples provide optimum grip.
A whole new look in the mountains: The new Tensing provides new mountaineers the choice they need for protective eyewear. The ultra-wrap profile gives maximum protection at high altitudes, as well as superior ventilation. The dual injected frame strategically combines a strong outer material with a highly flexible inner for comfort against the face.
