Bollé Aero­max

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - TRANSITION -

$240–300 It’s hard to fig­ure out where to start with the Aero­max sun­glasses – these stylish Ital­ian-made glasses fea­ture light and com­fort­able frames with large lenses that pro­vide lots of pro­tec­tion and ex­cel­lent clarity.

We’ll start with those lenses – our re­view Aero­max glasses came with the Mo­du­la­tor Brown Emer­ald Oleo lenses that use Bollé’s B-clear ma­te­rial. It’s lighter than poly­car­bon­ate so the lens can pro­vide more cov­er­age with­out adding any weight. The pho­tochromic lense tech­nol­ogy is em­bed­ded into the lens so it au­to­mat­i­cally light­ens and dark­ens ac­cord­ing to con­di­tions, pro­vid­ing just the right amount of tint so your com­fort­able. The end re­sult is ex­cel­lent clarity and pro­tec­tion from the sun.

The frame is very com­fort­able and, thanks to the flex­i­ble rub­ber used on the in­side of the tem­ples, it stays in place no mat­ter how hard you’re go­ing.

$140 Fea­tur­ing a light­weight rim­less de­sign with a shield lens that pro­vides both lots of vi­sion and pro­tec­tion, you can change the an­gle of the pho­tochromic lenses by ad­just­ing the nose pads. The pho­tochromic anti-fog light grey lens changes tint to al­low as much as 75 per cent of the light through (when it’s darker) to as lit­tle as 25 per cent as things brighten up. In ad­di­tion to the anti-fog coat­ing on the in­side, the out­side of the lenses are coated with a hy­dropho­bic layer to keep things clear in the rain, or when you’ve poured wa­ter over your head on a hot day. The ad­justable nose­pieces also al­low you to dial in just the right amount of air­flow to help keep things cool on those su­per-hot race days.

$210 Fea­tur­ing Smith’s Chromapop Sun Red Mir­ror in­ter­change­able lens which is op­ti­cally tuned to pro­vide both vis­ual acu­ity and pro­vide out­stand­ing con­trast. The Chromapop po­lar­ized lens tech­nol­ogy fil­ters spe­cific wave­lengths of light to pro­vide greater def­i­ni­tion with­out chang­ing the way you’ll see colours. The re­sult is that you see lots of de­tail in a va­ri­ety of light con­di­tions. The Chromapop Car­bonic TLT lenses also pro­vide lots of im­pact pro­tec­tion and have a wa­ter and oil re­sis­tant coat­ing so you won’t feel like you’re look­ing through a haze to­wards the end of a long day of train­ing or rac­ing.

The light­weight frame­less de­sign is de­signed to er­gonom­i­cally fit to your face – the fit can be di­alled in even more thanks to the two-po­si­tion ad­justable nose­piece and slide-on temple ends which pro­vide ex­cel­lent grip. An ad­di­tional Chromapop Con­trast Rose Flash lens comes with the glasses so you’ll be di­alled in for darker days, too.—km
