It's not surprising that Bolle's tagline is 'FOR SPORT. FOR LIFE'. Starting life in 1888, the company went on to develop hair ornaments, safety goggles and finally sunglasses. They were the creator of the renowned 'cat's eye' sunglasses shape. Coming from a background of safety eyewear you can be sure that experience and technology has been included in their premium sunglasses range. The Bolle range includes contemporary casual frames and highly engineered frames designed for active sports and lifestyles. Bolle's sunglasses are good for sport and for life, as the tagline says.
The Bolle Technology
Bolle polycarbonate lenses are made from premium grade resin which produces a lense three times lighter than conventional glass lenses without losing any of the clarity. Being made of resin means they are more resistant than glass and with the Bolle engineered Carbo Glas coating they are 20 times more resistant to scratches and impact than conventional lenses.
As well as this there is the flexibility that the Optics Control System and the Sport Optical System presents.
The Optics Control System presents the flexibility to change your lenses as the situation suits. The choices of lenses are: Eclipse Photochromic, which adapt to the amount of UV in the environment providing you with exceptionally clear vision no matter what time of day it is; Element All-purpose, which is an all purpose lens but still engineered with the exacting technology Bolle provides; and finally the Horizon Polarized that reduces visible glare and reduces eye strain.
The Sports Optical System is a patented system that allows you to insert your own prescription lenses into the frames so your vision is always at its peak and allows you to perform at your maximum.
As well as this the lenses protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and have an anti-reflective coating applied to the inside of the lenses to stop light bouncing back off of them and into eyes.
With the B88 frames, Bolle uses the highest grade of nylon available to provide lightweight, durable frames with a thinness of material you wouldn't expect from something so strong. The nose pads are adjustable and with the added Thermogrip they keep the sunglasses on your face and your face comfortable. The nose pads and temple tips also absorb moisture and keep your sunglasses in place.
If metal frames are more your thing then Bolle has just the right solution for you. The Microfusion technology means that metal alloys can be used in custom moulds that creates a stylish and precise finish, giving you a whole range of choice.
Bolle – The sporting choice
As well as the choice of inland and off-shore lenses for boating, the photochromic and polarized lenses that are perfect for skiing, Bolle has developed their own Eaglevision and Competivision.
Eaglevision is adapted for the golf course as it optimises the green portion of the colour spectrum and Competivision that is engineered for the tennis court. It ensures the yellow of the colour spectrum is enhanced and the other colours are dampened so you can react faster and more decisive to the tennis ball. Bolle is definitely the choice of the competitive sports person.
