Choosing the right Julbo lenses
The Julbo brand has developed photochromic reactive technology for athletes that enables training in all conditions and in all terrain. This technology enables the lenses to adapt instantly to the ambient light to give the athletes a very precise view in all weather conditions. Today Julbo's photochromic reactive lenses are considered the best on the market.
Thanks to the high quality and the latest technology, the frame is also ultra-light, robust and adapts perfectly to different heads. The new Sport-Reactive collection offers improved performance compared to other models on the market and, in particular, fast reactivity, a very efficient polarizing filter and special treatments tailored to the needs of athletes, sometimes including a significant photochromic area.
In order to be able to choose your Julbo glasses properly, you have to consider various criteria, e.g the sport you want to practice, the terrain you want to practice it in, and the treatments you want to benefit from. A brief overview of Julbo's leading photochromic lens technology can be found here.
REACTIV Performance 0-3
Reactiv Performance 0-3 photochromic lenses are a real asset to your success. With a visible transmission rate between 12% and 87%, these glasses can adapt to all situations. How does it work? Depending on the environment the athlete is in and also the time of day, the color of the glass will be lighter or darker in order to give the user the best possible visibility. It should also be noted that the Reactiv Performance 0-3 photochromic lenses are effective at protecting your eyes even when weather conditions tend to worsen. In addition, these glasses remain insensitive to sudden changes in temperature, which means that the properties inherent in Reactiv technology are retained for life.
In order to offer you the best possible visibility, the inside of the photochromic Reactiv Performance 0-3 lenses is provided with an anti-fog treatment that prevents any condensation and guarantees maximum service life.
Reactiv Performance 0-3 photochromic lenses are effective day and night and are particularly suitable for endurance sports such as trail running, running, etc.
REACTIV Performance 2-4 (Zebra)
Photochromic lenses with Reactiv Performance 2-4 technology offer the fastest reactivity with simultaneous visibility and an efficient fit. The great advantage of this type of lens is that athletes can benefit from a high degree of optical clarity in almost every situation. The glasses are adaptable, meaning they become clearer when the ambient light begins to fall and, conversely, they become darker when the sunshine is strong.
In order to offer athletes maximum comfort, the photochromic Reactiv Performance 2-4 lenses benefit from an anti-fog treatment to prevent the formation of condensation and an anti-reflective finish. The latter drastically reduces the glare of the athlete by returning part of the rays received.
Reactiv Performance 2-4 photochromics use the so-called SHR photochromics and thus offer a high activation and deactivation speed. In addition, the outside of the glasses has been subjected to an oleophobic treatment that prevents dirt, encourages water to slide on the glass and makes cleaning easier.
The photochromic lenses Reactiv Performance 2-4 enable an off-road view in bright light and in the shade and benefit from a high activation speed. They are particularly suitable for trail, skiing, climbing, running or mountaineering.
REACTIV Performance 1-3 (Zebra Light)
Reactiv Performance 1-3 photochromic lenses offer athletes a visible transmission rate between 13% and 72%, which allows the lenses to adapt to a wide variety of environmental situations. As with the other lenses in the Reactiv Performance series, the color of the lenses adapts to the time of day as required by lightening or darkening them to offer athletes comfort in the best conditions. Abrupt temperature changes are also not a problem as they do not prevent the maintenance of the performance level.
Reactive Power 1-3 photochromic lenses have an anti-fog treatment to prevent condensation from forming on the inside of the lenses. This treatment allows athletes to accelerate the pace without feeling uncomfortable. An oleophobic treatment on the outside of the glasses makes it possible to both accelerate the sliding of the water, avoid dirt and make the glasses easier to clean.
Thanks to NTS photochromic technology, these lenses offer a clear view in most weather conditions and at any time of the day. These are glasses that are particularly recommended for running, mountain biking or trail running.
REACTIV Performance 1-3 (Zebra Hellrot)
Reactive 1-3 Zebra Light Red photochromic lenses have a pink pigment that is visible when the lens is clearest. This allows athletes who use them to have an improved view of contrasts when the outside light is at its lowest. But that's not all ! When Reactiv Performance 1-3 Zebra Light Red photochromic lenses are tinted, they turn gray and a blue mirror treatment appears. On the aesthetic side, these glasses offer a very popular style.
These photochromic Zebra Light Red photochromic lenses from Reactiv Performance 1-3 with a relatively light basic tint allow athletes to train in environments where the light can be very weak, e.g. B. under cloudy skies.
The Reactiv Performance 1-3 Zebra Light Red was developed with an anti-fog treatment to prevent condensation and an oleophobic treatment for easy cleaning and for easy sliding of water on the lenses and offers a high-contrast and clear view in the entire area. These are glasses that are perfect for trail, skiing, mountain biking, or even running.
REACTIV Nautic 2-3 (Octopus)
The Reactiv Nautic 2-3 photochromic lenses feature NTS technology that allows them to be darkened or lightened depending on the intensity of the light received. So they get brighter when the ambient light dims and, conversely, they get darker when the light is strong.
Reactive Nautic 2-3 photochromic lenses have a polarizing treatment. This treatment eliminates the blinding reflection of light on water or other types of surfaces. The inside of the lenses is treated with an anti-fog treatment as well as an oleophobic and hydrophobic treatment that prevents water from stagnating on the lenses. These last two treatments cover the inside and outside of the lenses.
REACTIV High Mountain 2-4 (Kameleon)
The photochromic Reactiv High Mountain 2-4 glasses are one of Julbo's top models. These sunglass lenses have a visible transmission rate between 5% and 20% so the lenses can adapt to all types of situations. With a polarization treatment, they eliminate the reverberation in order to further filter the ambient light. Equipped with NTS technology, they become lighter or darker depending on the time of day.
The basic tone of the photochromic Reactiv High Mountain 2-4 lenses is brown, which enables a perfect and high-contrast view of the relief. These lenses have an anti-fog treatment to prevent condensation and are immune to temperature changes, even if they occur suddenly.
These glasses are therefore perfect for the mountains, outdoor sports, but also for the desert. They are therefore perfect for mountaineering, skiing or even trekking.
REACTIV All Around 2-3
Reactiv All Around 2-3 photochromic lenses are definitely the most versatile glasses in the Julbo range. Depending on the intensity of the interior or exterior light, the glasses become lighter or darker thanks to NTS technology. Temperatures do not affect the performance of the lenses, even if they change suddenly. The polarizing lenses that neutralize the reflection of light on water or snow and enable a clear and high-contrast view in any weather.
These are glasses that are perfectly adapted to the practice of outdoor sports in the mountains or on the water, but are also compatible with screens. This makes these glasses an ideal partner for both sports and everyday life.
