Julbo’s Floating Wave Sunglass Wins Outside Magazine’s 2013 Gear of the Year


WILLISTON, VT –Julbo, celebrating 125 years of advanced, protective optical technology, is honored to accept Outside Magazine’s 2013 Gear of the Year award for Julbo’s fully floating sunglasses, the Wave.

Regarded as an ultimate resource for product reviews, technology, news and tips, the Outside’s summer Buyer’s Guide is organized by various sports and activities to effortlessly lead outdoor enthusiasts to the best gear and advice in the industry. Achieving a Gear of the Year accolade, in any category, is a mark of the highest distinction.

“As an independent, family-owned business celebrating our 125th anniversary, we are constantly seeking optical innovation and performance perfection,” said Julbo USA’s CEO, Nick Yardley. “It is a privilege to be recognized by Outside for such an acclaimed honor.“

Designed to meet the needs of those who play, work and live near the water, the Julbo Wave sunglass provides the coverage, functionality and features that every watersports enthusiast needs to protect their eyes against the elements of sun and water. From flat water freshwater to massive ocean swells, the Wave offers the highest level of protection while navigating big waters.

According to the Outside tester, “The goggle-ish Wave are rapture for river runners, stand-up paddlers, and the rest of the watersports set.”

The Wave’s polypro bi-injected wrap-around frame is floatable in the case of dropping them in water. The lightweight frames also feature a protection skirt, a removable flexible rim that eliminates water and wind from coming in from all sides. The feature adds an extra degree of protection and prevents views from being obstructed during volatile water conditions. Furthermore, the Wave is available in Julbo’s photochromic, polarized and hydrophobic Octopus lens ($190). For a lower price point, the Wave is also available with Julbo’s Spectron 3+ lens ($90) or the Polarized 3+ lens ($120).
