Julbo won the Silmo d'Or award at the recent Silmo eyewear show in Paris for its Tensing Flight sunglasses in the sports category. Developed for base jumping and other extreme sports, the Tensing Flight model features an adaptable nosepad, and its temples have been replaced by an elastic band. The French company is working on its first line of optical prescription frames, and it will soon have news in the women's category. The Julbo company is targeting sales of more than €27 million this year, driven in particular by its growing offering of corrective sunglasses. Sales have also been boosted by Julbo's recent decision to go directly to retailers in Austria and the Benelux countries.
