The Julbo Aero is the high-performance optic of choice for mountain athletes the world over. No frame or lens detail was overlooked. The lens sits suspended within the frame to create a small gap perfectly sized for massive amounts of ventilation even at low speeds. The wrapping lens combats distortion and ensures crystal clear protection from the elements. The 3D Fit Nose piece and Air Link temple provide vibration dampening performance so bouncy sunglasses during jump turns are a thing of the past. Plus, at a meager 32g, you’ll forget you’re even wearing them.
New this year is Julbos REACTIV Photochromatic lens. After 10 years of continued research in high performance lens they introduce their best yet. They have the widest range of light conditons ( catagory 0-3), ultra accurate vision and fastest reactive speed. Unlike Julbos previous Zebra lens, the REACTIV has a clear base tint and will work in darkness, great for endurance athletes.
Zebra Light Photochromic lens transitions from a rose color that is clear enough to be worn during alpine starts to a dark reflective lens capable of a goggle-tan.
New REACTIV Photochromatic lens will now work in darkness and is the best for low light conditons.
Wide field of vision provides consistent coverage all the way around.
Panoramic lens eliminates awkward angles when trying to zip up your jacket, stuff skins into a pocket, or land a front flip.
I use these for everything, Mtbing, skiing, running, etc. I'm not entirely sure what the difference between these and the aerolites is, tired a pair on and they seemed virtually identical. I have an average sized head and they fit well, don't bounce off, or slide off when looking down.
The lenses scratch easily, so they need to be stored in the case but that goes without saying for most eye-wear.
I have been using these for a year now for all my activities - ski mountaineering, running, hiking, cycling, etc - and have been very happy. The zebra light lens transitions with changing light conditions quite fast. They are probably too large for small (women) faces but otherwise they should fit well.
