Tensing Flight, high-flying performance sunglasses, in video

The Tensing Flight is the story of an adventure. Big fans of the Tensing concept, Fred Fugen and Vincent Reffet, two high flying athletes, joined forces with Julbo’s R&D teams to design an alternative version of the model for extreme aerial sports.

The Soul Flyers are Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet, two athletes who know each other by heart. Between 2004 and 2009, they made 7,000 jumps together and won all the competitions they took part in, as well as all the Freefly World Champion titles, the most artistic parachuting discipline! Since then, these "Soul Brothers" have been jumping all over the world and encouraging us to dream of the impossible with their combinations of parachuting, base jumping, wingsuit flying, freeflying and speedriding, performed with pinpoint accuracy and synchronization.

 

On 21 April 2014 in Dubai, Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet successfully completed the fi rst jump from the Burj Khalifa, the highest tower in the world at 828 m. With this legendary jump, our Soul Flyers landed right in the famous Guinness Book of Records! And they never stop! In 2015, they jump from a plane over the Mont-Blanc to 10,000 altitude. An adventure that we'll tell you very soon.

And with both of them we developped the Tensing Flight model, rewarded by a Silmo d’or in 2013. "When we designed the Tensing Flight with Julbo, we wanted sunglasses that would provide faultless protection on all our adventures. With their strap and flexible frame, they stick perfectly to the face and provide optimum air-tightness. Whatever our position in flight, no air can get in to disturb our vision, even at high speed in freefall. And for that alone, it's awesome." explain Fred and Vince.
