Which sunglasses should I choose for the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB®)?
You only have two months left to get ready for one of the five UTMB® races. Have you chosen your sunglasses yet? It doesn't matter if you are after a simple fashion accessory or a real performance aid: we are here to help you choose your frame and lenses.
The start of the annual trail race, taking place in Chamonix from 22 to 28 August 2016, is rapidly approaching. Whether it is the goal for your season or a the goal of a lifetime, trail running is a demanding, tough and technical discipline for everyone. So all of your equipment needs to live up to that!
Often wrongly thought of as a mere fashion accessory, sunglasses, beyond their style, can be a real performance aid.
One of the main criteria when choosing your pair of glasses for an ultramarathon should be the weight. The lighter the frame, the sooner you will forget about your glasses, meaning you can wear them comfortably from start to finish.
But in order to keep them on throughout the race, you also need lenses that adapt to the ambient light while protecting your eyes from UV rays. Photochromic, transitioning, adaptive, variable, changing lenses… Whatever you want to call them, they do the same thing: they allow you to take just one pair of sunglasses with you no matter how bright it is and whatever the weather!
Besides benefiting from optimal sun protection, it is also important to avoid any visual impairment caused, in particular, by perspiration. Our Zebra (cat. 2 to 4) and Zebra Light (cat. 1 to 3) photochromic lenses have an anti-fog coating on the inner surface.
And if you combine them with suspended lenses, you're sure to never encounter this problem!
Where necessary, our technical sunglasses can also be adapted to suit your vision. If you know your prescription, simply enter it here to find out which frames can be adapted to your vision.
Here is our selection of light, technical sunglasses, an absolute must for guaranteeing good vision at any time during any of the five UTMB® races.
