Designed with help from professional mountain bikers, the Dirt 2.0 sunglasses come from Julbo: a French company that’s been making athletic eyewear for more than 125 years. They provide comfort and security on technical terrains, with a wraparound design that creates a wide field of vision for better clarity while riding. The lightweight, aerodynamic frame minimizes wind resistance on quick downhills, while the curved temples keep the glasses firmly in place when things get rough. Finally, the nose pads are coated with a shock-absorbing rubber that prevents the frame from bouncing or being lifted up by the wind.
Note: At checkout, choose the matte dark blue/green frame with Spectron 3CF lenses (base price), the matte black/black frame with polarized 3+ lenses (+ $20), the army frame with Zebra Light photochromic lenses (+ $30), or the matte black/black frame with Zebra photochromic lenses (+ $30). This drop has limited quantities available.
Named after 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.
