Julbo's Aerospace goggle wins an ISPO AWARD
For the 2015/16 season, Julbo has designed the Aerospace model, the first goggle that's just as happy going up as down thanks to its innovative ventilation system known as SuperFlow. The innovation was awarded the Gold Winner title at the 2015 ISPO Awards in the

Julbo is already recognized for the quality of its goggles, particularly for its four photochromic technical lenses. “With Aerospace, we've gone that little bit further, introducing an innovation that clearly responds to the changes we're seeing in skiing,” explains Benjamin Thaller, Marketing Director. And he's quite right.
For the past few years, skiers are no longer afraid of walking for several hours in search of virgin slopes or wandering far away from the ski lifts. “Skis, ski boots, and so on, everything's been adapted to this new practice of freer skiing, apart from goggles,” says Nicolas Defude, Product Manager. “At the moment, nobody walks with their goggles on because the effort you put out causes fogging. And it was in response to this very problem that Julbo designed the first ski goggle suitable for both uphill and downhill adventures thanks to the SuperFlow System.”
It's an ingenious system that allows you to easily pull the lens forward - even with gloves - allowing air to flow in for better heat management and to prevent fogging when going uphill. When you're ready to go down, simply snap the lens back in place and enjoy all the comfort of a regular goggle. “This new system is extremely compact and completely integrated into the frame because we didn't want to make any compromises between performance and field of vision,” explains Clément Bonnet Mathieu, Designer.
An innovation that we are proud to present at our ISPO booth - from 5 to 8 February 2015 - and invites you to test in real conditions through our event The Line, a freetouring trip through the Alps.
