Quick Take: Bollé has launched the latest additions to its Glacier Mountain Range sun collection. This latest collection is a continuation of Bollé’s commitment to providing eco-friendly, and sustainably sourced products as part of its React for Good Campaign.
Specifics: New launches include the Adventurer, Ascender, and Pathfinder. The Adventurer is a classic round mountain frame featuring thermogrip rubber on the temple tips and the adjustable 3-position nose piece. It feature removable side shields for maximum light protection, a snap hinge and a space for a cord. The Ascender is a flat panto frame with a removable side shield that offers a mix between performance and fashion. Finally, the Pathfinder is a classic square mountain frame with removable side shields.
Selling Point: All three styles are handcrafted with eco-friendly acetate and made from Rilsan G850 nylon which is composed of a 45 percent bio-based castor oil. Additionally, lenses will be available in Bollé’s Phantom polarized lens (VLT 18-5 percent), lenses as well as the new Solace4 lens (VLT 5.5 percent). Solace4 is Bollé’s latest petroleum-free mineral performance lens specifically engineered for high-altitude mountaineering that is scratch resistant and distortion-free.
Tove Fritzell, director of product & innovation for Bollé Brands, said, “Our Mountain Collection is a symbol of Bollé’s heritage, and the glacier range has been carefully crafted with attention to detail and the most advanced material and technology, to perform in and endure the most challenging conditions.”
