Alpine skylines, belter days on the Lake District fells, the faster and lighter you move, the more landscapes you can feast your eyes on.

Helio are performance sunglasses for dynamic, fast and light activities where protection from the sun and a secure fit are top priority. With category 3 UV protective lenses, they’re well-suited to anywhere from the valley floor to the Alpine and Himalayan mountain ranges. The slimmer lens is ideal for anyone who likes their sunnies on the narrower side.

Helio are curved to wrap around your face, giving you a wider field of vision and a more secure fit for higher intensity activities such as running, climbing, and fast and light alpinism. Comfortable ridged flexible nose grips and arm grips stop them from sliding off, so you don’t need to worry about losing your sunnies when you’re half-way up a route or running along a ridgeline.

Active sunglasses need to be hardwearing, so we’ve used TR90 (a super durable, lightweight, and flexible thermoplastic) to make the Helio both sturdy and comfortable. The polycarbonate lenses have a hard coating to help prevent scratches and are ‘drop ball’ impact tested for good measure.

Great-fitting glasses

Picked these up on the spur of the moment and they have been brilliant: the fit is excellent and stays on for higher exertion activities. The lens quality is decent too and they look great!
