The versatility of the photochromatic lenses in the Montobianco Reactiv Zebra 2-4 is amazing. Covering general purpose Cat 2 through to the high altitude, extreme levels of visible and UV light you encounter in the mountains, these lenses cope with it all.
A classic for mountain lovers on familiar terms with the peaks... but who also return to the valley! Ideal for medium to large faces, the removable protective side shields offer perfect adaptability to climatic conditions. Lightness, technical excellence and high protection are combined with style and simplicity on this model.
Julbo's Montebianco Reactiv Zebra 2-4 Sunglasses have a pretty simple but very effective frame that suits a wide range of outdoor activities. The simple, curved design means the glasses sit comfortably and grip naturally - that being said they are probably not a good choice for high impact sports such as downhill or enduro riding as there is no additional grip fro silicon strips. The arms have removable side shields, for when you need that extra protection, and have small holes that allow you to add a cord attachment.
These come with Reactiv Zebra 2-4 lenses which cover Cat. 2 through to Cat 4. levels of protection. The versatility of these photochromic and polarized lenses with anti-fog coating are the highest performance for anyone who needs glasses able to cope with everyday conditions right up the use in the high mountains. The lenses appear light and bright which makes you question the level of protection when you first wear them compared to a simple Cat. 4 lens but they are certainly up to the task and work well in any conditions.
