Vuarnet makes some of the most technically advanced lenses in the business. Their SKILYNX and PX5000 lenses are incredible to ski and ride in, and the Vuarnet company history is even more incredible.
The Vuarnet brand was developed from the invention of the Skilynx lens in 1957 by French opticians Roger Pouilloux and Joseph Hatchiguian. The sunglasses were originally marketed under the name Skilynx Acier, and were provided to the French Ski Team. In 1961, after winning the gold medal in Downhill at the 1960 Winter Olympics, Alpine Ski Racer Jean Vuarnet delighted with the functionality of Pouilloux and Hatchiguian’s glasses, decided to become more involved with the brand. Vuarnet has been setting the standard in sunglass excellence ever since.
