Description

Made for all manner of mountains.

From weekend rides on your favorite cross-country mountain bike trail to summit pushes in the high alpine, keep your eyes shields from the sun with the sleek and stylish Julbo Shield Zebra Photochromic Sunglasses. They have the tools to handle excursions far above the tree line, while offering streetwear-inspired style that won't be out of place in the bike park.

Zebra photochromic lenses adjust to changing light conditions, which comes in handy when you're darting in and out of shadows while riding single-track or dealing with fast-moving clouds in the high mountains. Removable side shields block out glare and cross-winds, and Air Flow ventilation prevents condensation buildup when you're ascending a steep stretch of trail. Anti-fog and oil-repellent coatings keep your view clear, and curved temples provide a secure fit that won't slip when you're whipping around berms or scaling cliffs.

  • Mountain bike style meets mountaineering function
  • Zebra lenses adjust to changes in light intensity
  • Removable side shields block light and wind
  • Curved temples offer comfy and secure fit
  • Anti-fog coating prevents condensation buildup
  • Oil-repellent coating repels splashes and smudges
  • Brown tint reduces strain on eyes

    Almost 5 stars

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I've never spent any money on sunglasses, always taking what was free or found. But after finally getting tired of the amount of light coming in from above and below my typical RayBan knock offs and having to remove my glasses so I could see where my nuts or cams were being placed in the shadows, I bit the bullet and paid for some decent glasses. It was well worth it. The photo chromatic feature is amazing: great for when on climbs where the sun dips behind a cloud for a bit or you climb into a shaded section and don't need to remove them to continue on. I was skeptical at first with the brown tint, thinking it wouldn't be dark enough, but that's only the case if you're looking right into the sun. Comes with a semi hard and soft case, along with a strap. I didn't give this 5 stars due to the ease the side shades come out. Mine came off during a climb but luckily I was able to retrieve it on the way down.

    What type of Zebra Lense are on the Blue/Blue/Yellow model? Are they Zebra Performance, Zebra Red or Zebra Light? Do you have the VLT% as well?

    Great, versatile glasses

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I bought these glasses primarily for mountain biking. I wanted a set of sunglasses that (1) had good photochromatic lenses, (2) fit well under a helmet and stayed in place, (3) had a wide field of view, particularly at the bottom, and (4) had a more casual style, rather than something sporty looking. These are perfect. The photochromatic lenses work well. They adjust nicely as you move from shaded areas to sunny areas, and I rarely feel like they're too dark or too light. The bottom of the lens frame curves in toward the cheeks, so (at least for me) the bottom of the frame doesn't block my field of view of my bike / the trail. While I bought these for mountain biking, they've quickly become my go-to sunglasses for driving, walking around town, etc. I haven't used the side shades when skiing / mountaineering, etc., but the coverage is good, and the side shades are easy to take on and off.
