Bolle Lens Technology

  Bolle believe in taking everything to the next level, especially when it comes to their lenses. That's why Bolle offers a vast array of technological refiniements in each lens that push eyewear, and your game, to new heights.

  • b20.3 Polycarbonate lenses: sunglasses should protect you from more than just the bright sun. Bolle polycarbonate lenses are made from premium grade resin, resulting in a lens that is x20 more impact resistant than glass and x3 lighter, with unrivalled optical precision and clarity.
  • bToric lenses: these unique lenses are designed with a different contour horizontally and vertically to work with the face's natural shape while maximising peripheral vision. This provides protection from dust, wind and onlookers' eyes, as well as from bright sun and UV rays.
  • Optics Control System: different conditions demand different lenses. The Bolle interchangeable lens system gives you the flexibility to match your eyewear to the conditions.
  • Carbo Glas Coating: Lightweight, optically precise lenses are enhanced with an armour shell on both sides of the lens to protect against scratches.
  • Polarisation: glare can be distracting, annoying and dangerous. Light rays from the sun vibrate and radiate in all directions; Bolle polarised lenses align these rays, resulting in a crystal clear view of your environment. Whether it's the ski slope, the trout stream or on the road at rush hour, Bolle polarised sunglasses enable you to see through the glare to what's really ahead - the mogul, the trout or the oncoming traffic.
  • Anti-Reflective Coating: Glare and bright light come at you from all directions, and they can bounce back directly into your eyes. A scientifically engineered coating is applied to the inside of most Bolle lenses to combat this reflection, keeping annoying glare out of your eyes.
  • ANSI/CE Standards: All Bolle sunglasses exceed ANSI and CE marked requirements for UV protection, impact-resistance and optical clarity.

Bolle Frame Technology

  Developing high performance eyewear doesn't stop with the lenses. Bolle sunglasses provide the latest technological advances in frame comfort, durability and versatility - from adjustable nose pads and temple tips to lightweight precision moulding.

  • Wire-core temple tips: adjustable wire-core temple tips help increase comfort by letting you customise your sunglasses.
  • Adjustable nose pads: adjustable nose pads can be tailored to fit your nose perfectly, keeping the glasses securely on your face.
  • Thermogrip: Thermogrip rubber temples and nose pads with moisture-absorbing properties give you solid yet soft adhesion at all times.
  • Microfusion: a lot of the unique shapes on metal Bolle sunglasses can be attributed to Microfusion. Exclusive to Bolle glasses, this manufacturing process injects molten metal alloys into cusom molds, producing highly precise frame styling and design. This process is also used on Bolle's machine-stamped and hand-finished frames.
  • b88 Frames: the finest nylon is utilised in Bolle frames to create sunglasses that are lightweight, incredibly durable and ulitmately flexible. The unique material composition allows Bolle to create visually stunning glasses in any shape or thickness without compromising durability.

Bolle History

The Bolle story began in the small town of Oyonnax, France in 1888. There Seraphim Bollé started his company by first manufacturing combs and hair ornaments for the boxwood and horn indigenous to the region. After WWII, Bolle led the way in molding nylon to the highest standards in the world. Safety glasses and goggles were added to the Bolle line in 1950 and in 1956 Georges Bollé created the famous nylon 'cat-eye' sunglass. And in 1960, ski goggles were first marketed by Bolle. Leading the industry in product innovations, the Bollé family took the business from a small cottage industry to one of the world's most prominent manufacturers of premium eyewear.

Now, over 100 years later, Bolle eyewear is distributed and worn all over the world. Bolle has developed particular strength in the sports specialty markets of snow sports, golf, tennis, and marine, as well as sunglasses that meet everyday needs and styles.

b-20.3 Polycarbonate Lenses

Bolle's polycarbonate lenses are made from premium-grade resin, resulting in a lens that is 20 times more impact-resistant than glass and three times lighter, with unrivaled precision and clarity.
