REACTIV Technology

 

WHAT IS REACTIV TECHNOLOGY?

REACTIV Photochromic lenses adjust to changing light conditions to provide a clear vision for every situation. With the widest photochromic range and fastest reaction time, REACTIV leads the industry in performance photochromic eyewear. With more than 130 years of development and experimentation in the most demanding sports, our REACTIV lenses offer the best photochromic optics on the market.

Manufactured using casting technology, REACTIV photochromic technology is "baked" into the lens so it never wears off, which is why all our lenses are backed with a lifetime warranty. Each lens takes nearly 20 hours to manufacture. The optical quality of a Julbo lens is nearly as good as glass. They offer outstanding performance in all technical criteria: reactivity speed, photochromic range, lens color, the efficiency of the polarizing filter, and special coatings to meet specific needs. Julbo has five unique REACTIV lenses in the market that are also available in Rx prescription sunglasses.

Photochromic lenses will automatically lighten or darken depending on the amount of UV light. The more UV light present, the darker the lenses will become, protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays.
