Julbo Reflex Sunglasses (w/ Zebra Antifog Lenses)
Created specifically for climbers, bikers and hikers who cover alpine trails in varied light conditions, Julbo's Instinct Sunglasses feature Zebra Photochromic lenses that adapt to changing brightness faster than previous photochromic lens designs. While results vary according to specific brightness, the lens activation time can reach 50% capacity within 28 seconds, giving you plenty of protection from moderate light (category 2) to exceptionally bright conditions (category 4). By pairing the sporty Instinct frame with the Zebra Photochromic lenses, Julbo eliminates the need for an interchangeable lens design--and the hassles of swapping out lenses in the wilderness. The Instinct has a rugged and resilient architecture that holds your face with extra broad Rubber Tip XXL elastomers along the temples. A HCD Concept lens geometry gives you wrap coverage and exceptional UV protection without sacrificing optical clarity along your peripheral vision. If you're tired of carrying around three sets of tints for your interchangeable shades, Julbo's Instinct Sunglasses with Zebra Photochromic lenses could be the best solution you'll see this season.
- Because of the Zebra Photochromic's category 4 protection, Julbo does not recommend these lenses for driving (lenses do not adapt quickly enough to light and shadow changes at highway speeds)
- Sporty high wrap shape for optimal peripheral coverage
- Extra broad Rubber Tip XXL elastomer at temples for exceptional grip even when wet
- HCD Concept lens geometry for wrap coverage with optical precision and minimal distortion
- Gun Metal Flash treatment technology mirror treatment absorbs little light for ocular clarity
- Zebra Photochromic lenses feature rapid progressive protection from category 2 to 4 (roughly a 60% to 92% visible light protection range)
- Activation time on Zebra Photochromic lenses typically reaches 50% capacity within 28 seconds
- Lens width: 62 mm.
- Moldable ear stem length: 135 mm.
- Nosebridge width: 18 mm.

We Love Julbo Photochromic Sport Sunglasses
I bought these Julbo Reflex glasses for my wife as the Julbo Race was slightly too large for her. The Reflex fits her smaller feminine face better. The frames are light, comfortable and do not move during intense trail running and mountain biking. As with the Julbo Race, the Zebra photochromic lenses are awesome. Eliminating the need to carry multiple lenses, the Zebra's adjust quick enough to changing light conditions and provide great clarity in a large field of view. These sunglasses have performed flawlessly in all weather and a large range of temperatures without fogging, and are stylish on and off the trail. They are great bang for the buck. Definitely worth the $$$.
