Designed with the help of enduro mountain biking champions Fabien Barel and Jérôme Clementz, the Julbo Drift sunglasses are built to handle the rigors of the road. And when the race is over, these stylish shades will look great just about anywhere. They feature a wraparound shape that offers ideal protection and a wide vision spectrum. Curved flexible-grip inserts adhere to your temples for maximum hold, while the shock-absorbent nose grip keeps you comfortable for hours on end. The Drift sunglasses also come with your choice of polarized category 3 lenses or Spectron category 3+ lenses, both of which are excellent in all types of environments.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of color: black/blue with Spectron 3+ lens, orange/blue with Spectron 3 CF lens, or black/black with polarized 3+ lens (+ $10).
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 goggles, 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.
