Product Review: Bollé Sunglasses

Bollé Introduces 3 in 1 Lens Technology Sunglasses

Sleek new models showcase first lenses to combine polarization with anti-fog and oleophobic coatings.

Subaru Triathlon Series and Bollé have teamed up for the 2013 season and we're excited to have them on board as a series sponsor! With their exciting new product line up, we're sure all our athletes will find the perfect pair of sunglasses for race day or as casual wear.

WIN one of 2 pairs at each of our Series events this summer. Stick around for the awards ceremony and you just might win some for yourself!

For 2013, Bollé becomes the first eyewear manufacturer to offer lenses that are polarized, and have anti-fog and oleophobic coatings.  Combining these three features addresses some of the most common causes of diminished visual acuity and eye fatigue.
Bollé 3 in 1 lens technology
Optional for a broad range of styles in the Bolle Sport Lifestyle series, 3-in-1 lens technology is available in four new-for-2013 sunglasses: Speed, Swift, Smart and Vibe.  This quartet of models shares a sleek design theme intended to convey a feeling of forward motion and provide a suitably modern platform for the advanced 3 in 1 lenses.

Bolle’s polarization technology – which dramatically reduces glare - is injected directly into the lenses. While more complicated than simply applying a polarizing film – as is the case with many other brands – embedding the technology removes any risk of delamination or decreased performance over time.

The oleophobic coating – which also has hydrophobic properties - guards against smudging caused by dirt, grease and water spots. Applied to the external side of the lenses, this treatment provides a protective barrier to keep the view ahead clear in all situations.

Available in a multitude of frame finishes and lens choices, all three models are all Rx-able.  On retailers’ shelves in January, price ranges between $100 - $150.
