The Bolle Diablo Sunglasses promise to be the perfect combination of lens and frame technology for any mountain adventure. Bolle has a boatload of years and technology behind them, but do these Bolle sunglasses live up to their promise?
Bolle Diablo Review
These sunglasses were on my desk for less than an hour before I was able to wear them on a bicycle commute from Denver to Castle Rock. I couldn’t have asked for a better day for testing sunglasses as my ride was marked with a mix of sun and clouds (and torrential rain, but we won’t talk about that!) throughout.
The first thing I noticed was the crystal clear optics. As far as I can tell, Bolle’s b-Clear technology is more than just marketing hype. These lenses are clear enough that I forgot I was wearing sunglasses a couple of times. The photo dark rose lenses worked well in a mix of lighting conditions. No squinting when the sun came out and not too dark when it was raining.
The fit was about as perfect as I’d ask for, with no tightness or pinching behind the ears. I experienced no lens fogging during a fifteen-minute downpour and after when heat and moisture could have easily rendered these lenses worthless. Those rad aluminum vents did their job.
I like these glasses a lot. Clear optics, lightweight, secure fit, and comfortable, and unique aluminum temple vents. The Bolle Diablos ($39,99) have everything I look for in sunglasses for cycling, running, and cross country skiing. And I wouldn’t be afraid to wear them to the taproom after my ride. Win, win!
