From Julbo, a French company that’s been making mountain eye protection for more than 125 years, the Aero and Aerolite sunglasses are well suited for ultrarunning, mountain biking, trail running, and more. The wide lens surface provides a broad field of vision, the aerated construction helps prevent fogging, and the Air Link temple system delivers snug all-day comfort without weighing you down. The Aero is designed to fit larger faces, while the Aerolite is geared toward women and anyone with a smaller face. Both models come with a range of lenses: Spectron 3+ (cat. 3), Spectron 3CF (cat. 3), Zebra Light (photochromic, cat. 1–3), and Zebra Light + Clear (photochromic, cat. 1–3). Learn more about the lenses here.
Note: At checkout, choose the Aero or the Aerolite sunglasses, each available with a range of frames and lenses. The base price is for models with Spectron 3+ and 3CF lenses, while models with Zebra Light lenses will be an additional $35. This drop has limited quantities available.
Named for its founder, Jules Baud, Julbo has its roots in the Jura region of France, dating all the way back to 1888. Baud started out designing optical eyewear, and at the request of crystal hunters braving the mountains of Chamonix, began making protective sunglasses for the most extreme conditions. In the 1950s, the company revolutionized the market with the Vermont glacier sunglasses, built for mountaineers conquering the highest peaks in the world. And that’s exactly where Julbo tested its products—on 8,000ers like K2, Gasherbrum II, Broad Peak, and Nanga Parbat, among others. In the ‘90s and early aughts, Julbo expanded its line to include a wide range of sports and terrains, and today it even makes eyewear for children.
