Oakley pioneered single-lens sports eyewear way back when in 1983, but they haven't released a markedly new cycling-focused design since 1990. Yes, the M-Frames were futuristic back then, but the style has been kind of ho-hum for years. It's still iconic, but is now conservative, when Oakley made its name being cutting-edge. Like the M-Frame, the Radar a single-lens sunglass that is light, fits well, and has interchangeable lenses with great optics. But it does the old M's one up by employing a new hydrophobic coating on the lens. This coating makes it easier to see what's up the road when water hits the lens, as it just beads up and rolls off; the coating also makes it easier for dirt to come off, and harder for smudges to be seen because it's also oleophobic. The coating is transparent and permanent. Another improvement over the old M is the nosepiece system. It's better in two ways. In terms of fit, Radars come with two nosepieces. One will fit better than the other; the come in different widths. This means it will sit properly on the schnoz, and neither pinch it nor sit so loose as to slide down. The second, more functional, improvement is that the nosepiece attaches to the rest of the frame. Oakley found that to meet military safety standards, the venerated M needed some decidedly garage tinkering. The new nosepiece attachment improves impact protection; it meets ANSI Z87. 1 standard for both high mass and high-velocity impact resistance. And then there are the surge ports. These are the holes molded into the arms. The ports direct air inside the arms so heat and sweat don't build up behind the sunglasses and arms. And unlike certain models of the M-Frame, the arms of the Radar fold. The lens is large in a modern, high-fashion way without being too big. We prefer the Path lens because we believe it is large enough to protect the eyes while being small enough so it doesn't overheat the head and seal the eyes off from the world.

Enhance your spectacle collection in anticipation of the backyard barbeques and volleyball matches happening in the near future with the Oakley Holbrook Sunglasses. See the spikes with the UV ray-filtering Plutonite lens, which also exhibits excellent peripheral vision thanks to its 6-base lens curvature. Cheap shots to your face won't yield costly consequences thanks to the durable but lightweight O Matter frame material, while the Three-Point Fit keeps the glasses snug and your head in the game. Shaun White helped create the Holbrook as an everyday summer shade based on the classic big frames of the '50s and '60s, and with the optional, glare-eliminating Iridium lens coating, you can squeeze as much function as fashion out of these shades.Product FeaturesFrame: O-MatterHinge: steelLens: Plutonite (polycarbonate)Interchangeable Lens: noPolarized: noFace Size: mediumFrame Measurements: Case Type: Nose Pads: noTemple Pads: noRecommended Use: casual, streetwearManufacturer Warranty: 1 year

There's little about the Oakley Half Jacket that hasn't already been said by its overwhelmingly appreciative wearers, or impressive sales numbers since its release way back in 2002. The new Half Jacket 2. 0 XL continues the longstanding traditions of Oakley's first interchangeable dual lens sport performance sunglass, with a slightly updated revision of the half-rimmed classic. The 2. 0 redesign takes width and fit cues from its predecessor, while widening out the sculpted earstems and using a more confident set of integrated hinges. In essence, the 2. 0 blends the best aspects of the initial Half Jacket, and Oakley's more recent Fast Jacket, but without the Switchlock technology. Like every Oakley design that leaves their Foothill Ranch factory, the Half Jacket 2. 0 XL not only meets, but exceeds the rigorous standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Granted, the worst that most of us will ever see is the occasional tree branch, or fast-flying insect, but Oakley still designs their lenses to withstand impacts as great as these, keeping your eyes protected wherever you ride. What good would safety standards be without near-perfect clarity? Oakley's patented High Definition Optics (HDO) boasts some of the best clarity in the industry. These optically-correct lenses are constructed from pure Plutonite, Oakley's proprietary polycarbonate that not only blocks all harmful UV-A, UV-B, UV-C, and harmful blue light up to 400nm, but is also the heart of the impact resistance of which Oakley so proud. Each lens is finished with a hydrophobic treatment that repels moisture buildup from water or sweat, and contaminants like fingerprints or smudges from sunscreen. The Half Jacket 2. 0 XL is constructed from a super-lightweight O-Matter polycarbonate frame, and is available in two color options: Polished Black with Black Iridium lenses, or the traffic cone-inspired Blood Orange with Fire Iridium lenses.

While the M Frame boasts a hybrid lens, Oakley's Flak Jacket is the true hybrid of the big O's offerings. It has feet firmly set in both the sport and lifestyle camps. It looks like it belongs on your face while riding, while hanging out, and for that hybrid of sport and standing around, golf. Oakley has updated the lens technology for Flak Jacket and now offers it with Iridium lenses. As you can imagine, you have all of Oakley's technology working for you here. The O Matter frame is lightweight, durable, and comfortable. The Unobtanium nose piece and ear socks help make that three-point fit as secure as wearing full-face goggles. High Definition Optics on Plutonite lenses offer great clarity, and the lenses are coated with a hydrophobic and oleophobic solution. These are features on all Oakley's sport glasses; they haven't skimped just because the look is fashionable. The Oakley Flak Jacket Iridium comes with a Jet Black frame and Black Iridium lenses. Black Iridium is a dark, neutral base lens with a mirror coating. It has 10% light transmission, meaning it is best used on extremely sunny days. It comes with a hard case and a soft bag, the latter for cleaning and stowing the glasses in a pocket. There are also two sets of nose pieces to customize the fit.
We've been toying with a mix of art and technology for some time. The idea was to create clean, authentic style for those who don't just walk the path of life - they stomp it and leave footprints. That's what led to Oakley Fuel Cell. The idea here is unflinching originality and a smooth look. It's proof that when authenticity speaks for itself, it speaks with volume.
Back in the day, aviators had flat lenses and simple barrel hinges, but thanks to the Oakley Plantiff Sunglasses, those days are long gone. Now lightweight alloy frames rock burly leaf-spring style hinges that let the Plantiff's arms flex past the point of no return to easily slide on your face. Curved optics not only maximize peripheral vision but also add dimensional style, and do so without gnarly distortion. We could go on and on, and eventually say something about afterburners and 4G inverted dives, but that's probably unnecessary. Plutonite lenses use a 8. 75 base curvature, meaning that the curve of these lenses maximizes coverage without distortionC5 metal alloy frames are strong, lightweight, and flexible in order to put up with life in the danger zoneMono Shock hinges borrow race engineering that uses leaf springs to allow the stems to flex beyond the limit of normal hingesA UV lens coating filters out 100% of UVA/UVB/UVC and blue light up to 400nm so the suns damaging rays won't degrade your visionOakley lenses meet all ANSI Z80. 3 standards of shatter- and impact-resistance
A new member of the Supercoil family just came kicking and screaming into the world, and it's ready to walk its own path and stomp on the terra. Supercoil 4 comes with a look its siblings would respect, especially with the laser-etched footbed and the icon of original style. A moisture wicking liner has been added under the synthetic microfiber strap and the platform now features resilient EVA and Oakley Red Code, a polyurethane structure with optimized cushioning and tuned shock absorption. On the bottom, Oakley's tried-and-true Unobtainium rubber offers sure footing no matter what the elements throw at you. This is the new younger brother of Supercoil designs, and from the looks of things, the kid will go far.Microfiber synthetic strap with custom textured overlayMoisture wicking, water-shedding liningMicroban antimicrobial treatmentExclusive Red Code textured foam deckEVA midsole chassisAbrasion resistant, high traction Unobtainium rubber outsoleLaser etched graphics on footbedIcon accentsImportedOakley flip flops
