Julbo Motion Review

Pro Reviews

Bottom Line
I really like the Julbo Motions, they are comfortable, stay put, are lightweight, have exceptional clarity, offer a great panoramic view and the photochromic are nice in varying conditions. The photochromic and anti-fog are 2 fantastic highlights of the lens. The ear loops and the nose bridge are unique and innovative, and only time will tell how they will keep functioning. I sometimes forget that I am wearing them, which is a sure sign of a great pair of sunglasses (or any apparel product). Outside of the difficulty of altering the length of the elastic ear loop, all the other issues were very minor quibbles.

About the author: Brian Mullin

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.
