For the highest level of protection in a smart and simple design the Monterosa Spectron 4 are a great choice and provide amazing value for money for the level of performance.
The Montebianco and MonteRosa (fits smaller faces) offer a classic style for mountain lovers who explore the summits and also enjoy the hustle and bustle of urban life. Stylish, curved temples provide maximum coverage, whether cruising around town or climbing Mount Rainier. A variety of lens options and removable side shields provide optimal versatility and offer adaptability to climatic conditions. Lightness, technical excellence and high protection combined with style and simplicity make the MonteBianco and Monterosa an excellent choice for sun protection.
Julbo's Monterosa Spectron 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 Cat. 4 lenses which provide the highest level of protection from visible and UV light. The amount of protection is immediately obvious as they are the darkest in the range by far. Definitely not suitable for darker days or everyday use but ideal for high altitudes and very bright conditions where you need much more protection than normal.
