JULBO IS FAR MORE THAN JUST AN OFFICIAL UTMB® SUPPLIER. THE WHOLE COMPANY HAS BEEN BUZZING WITH EXCITEMENT ABOUT THIS UNIQUE EVENT FOR 14 YEARS.
Julbo and trail running go back a long way. With high-performance models and excellent technical solutions, the French eyewear manufacturer offers a comprehensive and advanced range for all trail running fans. As partner of the UTMB® since 2004, Julbo underlines its commitment with two limited edition models in the colors of this iconic event. We are much more than an official supplier, we are #UTMBfans.
Although this passion is part of our history, it is also because we have products that have been designed and developed especially for trail running. But which one do you need?
How to choose your sunglasses for trail running?
Trail running is a demanding, tough and technical discipline. So your sunglasses need to live up to that! One of the main criteria when choosing your pair of glasses for an ultramarathon should be the weight. The lighter the frame, the sooner you will forget about your glasses, meaning you can wear them comfortably from start to finish. But in order to keep them on throughout the race, you also need lenses that adapt to the ambient light while protecting your eyes from UV. Reactiv Photochromic, transitioning, adaptive, variable, changing lenses… Whatever you want to call them, they do the same thing: they allow you to take just one pair of sunglasses with you no matter how bright it is and whatever the weather! Besides benefiting from optimal sun protection, it is also important to avoid any visual impairment caused, in particular, by perspiration. Our Zebra (cat. 2 to 4) and Zebra Light (cat. 1 to 3) photochromic lenses have an anti-fog coating on the inner surface. And if you combine them with suspended lenses, you're sure to never encounter this problem!.
Where necessary, our technical sunglasses can also be adapted to suit your vision. If you know your prescription, simply enter it here to find out which glasses can be adapted to your vision.
