WILLISTON, VT –Julbo, a leader in high-end performance eyewear, is pleased to welcome Michael Wolfe to its roster of sponsored athletes. Wolfe, a globally accomplished ultra runner and long time fan of Julbo sunglasses, will complement Julbo’s robust team of endurance athletes including fellow ultra runners Kami Semick, Ian Sharman and Aliza LaPierre.
During the past seven years, Wolfe has been a force to be reckoned at endurance races all over the world. In 2010 he placed second overall at the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc race in Chamonix, France. His 2011 season highlights included first place at Way Too Cool 50 KM, second place at Western States and first place overall in the North Face Endurance Challenge, in which he also set the new course record.
Wolfe’s experience with Julbo marks back to his late teenage years for mountaineering purposes. A few years ago he received a pair of the Julbo Run as a prize at the Trail Runner Trophy Series and claims since then he has never considered another pair of sunglasses. “Julbo sunglasses have always served me well, no matter what conditions I am in they always protect my eyes and face,” said Wolfe.
Julbo has been setting the industry standard in lens technology since the company’s inception over 120 years ago. Products such as the new Julbo Dust is designed specifically for endurance athletes in any and all conditions, with features such as the versatile, anti-fogging and photochromic Zebra lens as well as extraordinary fit, hold and comfort.
The addition of Wolfe to Julbo’s athlete roster demonstrates the company’s continued dedication to providing the finest performance optics for the industry’s preeminent athletes.
“As an involved member in the trail running community, Julbo is honored to have Michael to join our family of athletes,” said Julbo USA CEO, Nick Yardley. “We have watched Michael’s many accomplishments over the years and look forward to supporting his continued training and racing successes.”
