Bolle Parole Competivision Replacement Lens

Postby jae on Fri Jul 02, 2010 7:55 am

What is the difference between Bolle Parole and Bolle Parole 2 replacement lenses? Did Bolle change the frame design (did Bolle introduce Parole 2?) or simply changed the lens design?

I purchased Bolle Parole about 3 years ago and need replacement Competivision lens. Optics Planet has Bolle Parole 2 competivision replacement lens (50083) for $28.99 as well as older Bolle Parole competivision replacement lens (900754621) for $34.95. WHY ARE OLDER LENSES MORE EXPENSIVE??? WOULD NEWER LENSES FIT ON MY OLDER PAROLE FRAME? DID BOLLE MAKE ANY IMPROVEMENTS ON NEW LENSES???

Hello,

Sorry for any confusion. Let me try to explain it to you. In 2006 Bolle changed the style of Parole and Vigilante sunglasses. Number 2 stands for the newer model that was made after 2006. However, number 2 is not always used as they are still the same sunglasses.
You most likely have an older frame. Unfortunately, newer Bolle replacement lenses will not fit an old frame. However, we do still have some older lenses available. You can call our customer service at 800-504-5897 and we will be happy to help you place your order for the right replacement lens. Price should be the same for both, older and newer, models.

How can I tell if I have an older Bolle Parole or a newer Bolle Parole 2 frame?

Hi again,

There is a very easy way to find out if you have an older model of Bolle Parole and Bolle Vigilante sunglasses or not. If you bought the sunglasses before or in 2006 the you have the old modef of the frames and you will need to, most likely, update the frame. If the frame was bought after 2006 then you have the newer models and we have all the replacement lenses available for that model.

I remain confused: I bought my Vigilante frames from [link=http://www.OpticsPlanet.Com]Optics[/link] Planet "sometime" in the past. I have no recollection if it was "before" or "after" 2006. Is there some way, perhaps by examining the placement of the notches in the lenses or by the 10-digit model number/code on the frames, to determine if the frames are "pre-2006" or not? I'd like to acquire some polarized lenses for my frames, but I have no idea if your current versions will "fit", or not.

Please advise.

Thanks!
Rando

So how do you tell if they where manufactured before or after 2006?

Hi! Look for a model number on the frame.
