Performance shades made with cycling in mind.

Any serious cyclist knows that the sport can put any pair of sunglasses to the test, which is why Julbo made the Blast Zebra Light Fire Antifog Photochromic Sunglasses with a cycling-specific design. Their Photochromic lenses will adjust as the early morning light turns into a mid-day burnout. Well ventilated and treated with an anti-fog coating, your field of vision will remain clear when you lay the hammer down on the uphill. Curved, wrapping temples provide exceptional coverage, while the Grip Tech nose and temple pads keep them riding right where you want them.

Great Shades!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The lens and frame color combo is fantastic, giving these just enough flair. As others have noted, the photochromic technology works great making these true all-day and all-conditions sunglasses. I've had a few pair of Julbo's and have liked them all.

Great product

  • Fit: True to size

The absolute best biking glasses I've ever had. Work in every condition. Love them.

Temper-mental Glasses

    I have a love-hate relationship with these glasses. I use them primarily for mountain biking and ski touring.

    While mountain biking I find they fog up very quickly while climbing at slow speeds. Once I pick up a bit of speed on the down or flats they quickly de-fog. I've gotten used to putting them on the helmet for long pedals up. I like that they are light and the lends changes based on light levels - its easy to forget you are even wearing glasses (except when going up of course..)

    After a few months of use the outer layer has begun to scratch away, even though I always store them in the bag and wash with water+soap vs. rub clean. I doubt they will last that long, but I got them on sale so not too disappointed.

    Perfect for cycling

    At first I felt they fit a bit tight, but I don't notice that any longer. They sit comfortably and don't slide down. The size is perfect and the frame is out of view. I've not had any trouble with fogging and the main thing that the lens do for me is take away the glare. I never knew that would make such a difference. I'm really pleased with them and gladly recommend them.

    Amazing, beautiful sunnies

    I am in love with these sunglasses:



    1) the zebra light photochromic lens because virtually clear in dark/cloudy weather, allowing you to wear the sunglasses and get eye protection from the elements even in low visibility

    2) it mirrors up beautifully in sunny conditions!

    3) super light and comfortable to wear hours at a time

    4) awesome color



    I have worn these ice climbing and skinning starting very early am right through the day! My fave! Also, i have a small face and they work fine on me.

    Blue Fire!

    • Size Bought: one size

    That's what I call these babies. The image that Backcountry gives doesn't really give the color of the frame and lens justice - the blue is much more vibrant. Anyways, these are awesome! They. stay. on. without a doubt. I run with these, bike, swim.. you name it. Haven't ran into an issue yet (no pun intended?). The lens is pretty neat too, I don't pay too much attention to the technology behind them but I do actually notice the transition depending on the light. An enjoyable pair, going to buy the kid a pair when they fit him, probably in a different color so I can borrow them too.
