WILLISTON, VT – Julbo, designer and manufacturer of leading-edge, protective eyewear and lens technology, is proud to introduce the Motion at the 2009 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. The Motion exceeds performance eyewear standards on many fronts, and was inspired by cutting-edge, elite runners and cyclists in search of the lightest and most versatile sunglass.
Say goodbye to sunglasses that break up the view and hello to the Motion, which offers an incredible, panoramic vision spectrum. The Motion weighs a mere eight grams (.28 ounces), making it the lightest performance sunglasses on the market.
The Motion’s unique and aerodynamic styling is exceptionally efficient for all performance activities. The elasticated ear loops provide a custom and secure fit to hold strong on the most technical trails and the longest mogul lines.
To top things off, the Motion’s Zebra lens technology gives the lens a broad range to adjust to the sun’s aggressiveness in different environments. Julbo’s Zebra lens technology adapts to varying light conditions from Category 2 (59-percent visible light coverage) in low light conditions to Category 4 (95-percent visible light coverage) in powerful light in as little as 30 seconds, eliminating the need for interchangeable lenses that are time-consuming to install. Additionally, the Zebra lens has a lifelong anti-fog coating.
Julbo’s Zebra lens is made from NXT®, developed for the U.S. Army in the 1990s. NXT is unbreakable, incredibly light, offers better transparency and is optically superior to other lens materials especially when compared to polycarbonate. NXT is solvent resistant and is very high in definition compared to any polycarbonate lens, as well as, being caste into glass molds to ensure lower internal stress.
NXT is found in Julbo’s most technical, photochromatic lenses including the Zebra, Camel, Octopus and Julbo’s new Polar HD+ polarized lens. Unlike polycarbonate lenses, NXT actually features the photochromatic dye inside the material through laser technology.
