Julbo Lens Color Description

Sunglass Lens Colors                                 Ski Goggle Lens Colors

All Julbo lenses belong to optical class 1 and guarantee 100% protection against UVA, B and C. 

Special treatments:   Julbo is an expert in solar protection for high -risk environments and develops highly specific treatments for each condition of use. 

  • Anti-fog:  Applied by laser on the inside of the lens to guarantee maximum life. This same technology is used on helmet visors for grand prix racing.
  • Anti-Reflection:  Increase optical comfort and eliminates parasitic reflections.
  • Brown Out:  Gives enhanced filtration of visible light.
  • Flash:  Increases visible light filtering through a mirror effect on the lens.
  • Hydrophobic:  Causes water to slip off the lens.  The treatment prevents the creation of hydrogen links between water molecules.  Visibility is enhanced.

Protection Classes (CE standards)

Protection or category index% of visible light transmittedTips for use
080% to 100%cloudy days
143% to 80%partly sunny days

Lens Materials:

  • ARC Mineral:  Recommended for deserts and mountaineering.  Glass.  Excellent quality optics, scratch resistance, extra infrared protection.  Additional treatment to provide more impact resistance.
  • Spectron Polycarbonate:  Recommended for all sports.  Shock resistant and lightweight.  Anti-scratch surface treatment.
  • NXT:  High definition vision, superior optical quality, optimum transparency; light and unbreakable; lasting strength and resistance to solvents.   Made using low-temperature casting techniques which reduce internal stress in the material, this improves optical quality, gives excellent transparency, and increases long-term stability. NXT lenses were developed for the US Army.  3 high technology NXT lenses:
    •   Polar + : High precision polarizing lens with anti-reflection. This lens optimizes the view, cutting out distortion, and eliminating dazzling sun glints from all reflective surfaces.
    • Zebra: Photochromic lens. Wide amplitude in categories 2 to 4 with fast activation speed (22 to 28 seconds). Anti-fog treatment.  The glass darkens or lightens as the surrounding brightness changes (from 40.7% to 6.6% of the visible light transmission rate depending on luminous intensity).  Recommended for mountain biking, trails and climbing. 
    • Cameleon:  Photochromic and polarizing, dual technologies.  Progressive protection in categories 3 to 4.  Anti-glare, high definition polarizing lens which darkens or lightens as the brightness changes.  Recommended for water sports and mountaineering.

With a tint that reacts to different light levels and a Glare Control filter, it promotes optimum reading of the terrain whatever the conditions. The effects of whiteout and snow surface glare are eliminated, while icy sections are easy to see.  57% polarization effect combats glare while remaining sufficiently light to allow good visibility. This makes the terrain easy to read in both good and bad weather..Varies (25% to
