Great for Cycling/Running
May 24, 2009

Really impressed with these sunglasses so far. Very light weight and great for both road-running and cycling. Took on a 10 mile run and 40 mile ride. A bit large if you have a narrow face. Altrec shipping was very quick and smooth.

Durability: 4 / 5

Quality lens and nicely built frame. I would recommend this to any outdoor athlete or enthusiast, you will not be disappointing! Rating only good because it fits only small to medium faces.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, Cons: fit

great sunglasses
June 23, 2012

I wear these glasses for everything but they are my go to shades for trail-running. They transition from light to dark quickly and are very comfortable. Recently ran an ultra-marathon with them and the were perfect for all the different conditions that I faced (rain, sun, forested trails even in very low light conditions such as early mornings and evenings). Worth the price.

Pros: light weight, transition quickly, comfortable, do not fog up

It's all in the lenses!
June 06, 2012

I was so excited to order these glasses. They are so amazing - I actually felt that my vision was sharper and clearer while wearing these! My only disappointment is that they are a bit too large for my face. In the pictures they look small enough that they could be for women, but I felt as though I was wearing safety goggles. They're SUCH an incredible pair of glasses though that instead of returning them, I gave them to my husband and he is thrilled. They fit him perfectly and look great on him. They're comfortable and made well. The quality of the lenses is excellent! I'm just sad they're not for me. I'll have to search for another Julbo frame with hopefully the same Zebra lens.

Pros: style, comfort, excellent lens quality, Cons: fits too large for a woman's face

Nicely done

The Julbo Race sunglasses seem great so far. They are lighter in weight than expected and the lenses are great in terms of clarity. I haven't put the Zebra photochromic lenses to the test in full sun, but they adjust well in lower light intensity. The did not fog on a hard run in cool and humid conditions.

The best ! ! !

These are definately the best sunglasses I have ever owned. They are light weight...I can hardley tell they are on. They adjust to the light very well indoors and out.
