Sylvain's ski cross career almost never happened because of an eye problem that led to him losing his sight in the fall of 2012. No explanation or cure could be offered by doctors. Sylvain allowed time to take its course and his sight gradually returned, and with it a number of ski cross world cup podiums. In 2015, his win in Megève was particularly satisfying after all of his physical problems. He podiumed in second place twice during the 2016-2017 season. No doubt he's ready for a second Olympic adventure in 2018!
"Julbo is first and foremost one big family that loves sport and listens to its athletes. Add fantastic products such as the Zebra Light lens (that I use practically every day) and you have the ideal partner for a perfect winter."
Pro Team - A special series to shine at the highest level!
To support Julbo athletes in the major sporting competitions of winter 2017-2018, we've created a special series. Thanks to dynamic graphics and carefully chosen color combinations, we'll take our heroes and heroines to new heights and help their medal dreams come true. The contrasting colors of the helmet, goggles and sunglasses are symbolic of the transition from shade to light, evoking both our photochromic lens technologies and our competitors' quest for glory.
They also mean you'll easily spot Sylvain Miallier on the screen or on the slopes!
