Julbo : An innovative brand developing its own technologies

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.
