We’ve spoken about the variable light lens in our review of the Julbo Shield sunglasses – so be sure to check out that review for a deep-dive into what that particular technology is able to achieve.
In short, Julbo have succeeded in creating a lens that’s able to adapt to different lighting scenarios – something that became clear to us when we were transitioning from shaded north faces out into a highly exposed apron slope.
When this lens technology is applied to a pair of goggles, it reduces the need to constantly carry and swap out lens based on the light conditions; saving weight and space in your bag and, most importantly, reducing faff on transitions – particularly important when there’s a load of fresh snow to go at.

Given that this Reactiv tech does a pretty good damn good job at helping you see in most light conditions, it should be no surprise that Julbo don’t sell secondary lens for the Aerospace. However, if you do wish to clean the lens then this can be done albeit it’s a little trickier than it is with typical snow goggles.
The Aerospace comes with Julbo’s SuperFlow technology packed into it, meaning that you’re able to push the lens forward and away from your face – creating some much needed ventilation whilst ski touring.
