Your face is the most common place to forget the Julbo Aerolites. Built on the same platform as the Aero, the Aerolite is an equally high-performance optic, only slightly narrower and even lighter. A rimless lens design paired with massive ventilation cutouts on the sides come together to form a pair of glasses so light you’ll forget they're on your face, leaving you frantically searching through your backpack while your ski partners watch (and laugh). The 3D Fit Nose and Air Link Temple systems use a rubber compound that dampens vibrations and will remain grippy throughout the day. The Zebra Light Photochromic Lens is versatile enough to use any time of day, whether an early morning dawn patrol or Sunday-Funday ski outing.

Because nice things take time, it took Julbo 10 years to develop their best lens yet. These Julbo REACTIV Photochromic lenses support the widest range of light conditions, provide ultra-accurate vision, and have the fastest lens transition speed. Julbo's REACTIV lenses have a clear base tint and work well in darkness, making these great for endurance athletes. We carry several sunglasses and goggles from Julbo with their REACTIV lens technology, but the Aerolite sunglasses are our lightest glasses featuring the REACTIV technology. The Aerolites have a wide field of vision and will help you see better in a wide range of conditions. First thing you'll notice after trying a pair of Aerolites on? That you don't notice them at all.

  • New REACTIV Photochromatic lens will now work in darkness and are great for low light conditions, and then all day long.
  • Zebra Light Photochromic lens transitions from a rose color that works during alpine starts to a dark reflective lens capable of a goggle-tan.
  • Panoramic lenses and full venting encourage airflow even at low speeds, yet provide enough coverage for protection from the elements.
  • 3D Fit Nose and Air Link Temple provide a secure fit while remaining comfortable throughout the day.
  • Photochromic Lens transitions between a dark or light tint based on UV Exposure.

Update 2019/20: Julbo's new REACTIV lenses accommodate an even bigger range of light conditions. The lenses found on the Aerolites are rated from category 0 to 3 on the chart (on Julbo's chart, 0 is total darkness and 4 is direct sunlight). The REACTIV lenses adapt to changing light conditions faster than any other Julbo lenses, and these particular lenses will allow only 12% of natural light to filter through under extremely bright conditions, while allowing up to 87% of light to filter through during extremely dark conditions.

Very nice design overall: large vision coverage yet low profile, secure fit yet feels like it's barely there.

The outstanding characteristic though is the Zebra Light lens. I bought these in large part because of a PDG race report by Patrick Fink at his Mountain Lessons blog where he reported that he used the Zebra Light lens during both the day *and* night portions of the race?!?

Sure enough, I used them for a nighttime skimo race yesterday. The lens might be cutting down on *some* portion of visible light, but placing them on and off my face, I could not tell *any* different at all!

I am really looking forward to using them on tours that start with just barely enough light to see ... as well as tours that finish up a bit too late in the evening, although hoping not to have *too* many of those.
