Eye Wear and Sunglasses for Running
Whether pounding the pavement or the trail, runners demand a lot from their sunglasses.
Sure, sunglasses need to deflect the sun's harmful rays, but they also need to handle glare and changing weather conditions. Julbo's sunglasses are renowned for their lens quality. Lenses such as the Zebra® make the transition quickly between sun and shade so you don't have to break your stride. Special lens treatments minimize the impact of sweat, humidity and water.
When you are running, the last thing you want is eye wear that jiggles about; Julbo's running sunglasses optimize the fit and function of your eye wear. Models such as Trail have a shock-absorbent insert that will remain in position on the nose and elastomer shock absorbers at the sides.
Why athletes recommend these Julbo sunglasses for running:
- The Zebra® photochromic lens darkens or lightens depending on the light’s intensity
- Anti-fog coatings make sunglasses resist fogging during a workout
- Several sunglasses offer an optional optical clip, enabling prescription lens wearers to take full advantage of the Julbo's lens technology
- Julbo's panoramic lenses offer an extra-wide field of view
- Julbo's sunglasses for running combine low weight with strength—the Trail weighs in at an impressive 1 ounce

In the Press
The Ultra is earning praise from the running media world. Runner’s World reported in its August issue: “With photochromic lenses that rapidly change tint with the light, the Julbo Ultra is ideal if your run leads you through tree-covered trails one moment and open grasslands the next. And if you happen to take a fall midrun—or drop the 1.1-ounce shades on the trail or pavement—the lenses won't shatter.” See more media mentions from Running Times, Trail Runner and more on the Julbo blog.
Triathlete magazine’s spring 2011 “Buyer’s Guide” issue says this about the Contest: “These multipurpose lightweight shades have endurance practicality and free-ride style. Their quick-changing photochromic Zebra anti-fog lenses can morph from their darkest to lightest condition in about 25 seconds. The frame design is well-ventilated for grueling, hot-weather ascents on the trails or roads, and the sunglasses offer a huge range of peripheral vision when you’re hammering the pedals in the aero position.”
Runner's World reported that the Trail's "superbendy lenses...are plenty durable to handle the pesky low branches and debris of trail running."
Running Times says the photochromatic lenses of the Julbo Instinct eliminate the need for additional lenses: "Subtly changes tints to adapt to dull or bright light conditions."
SunglassBuyersGuide.Com reviewed the Julbo Trail sunglasses and proclamed: "Great Choice for trail running hiking."
Rocky Mountain Sports says, “If you are a multisport maniac, consider adding the Race to your gear stable.”
