Features:

  • 100% UVA, AVB, and UVC Protection: Oakley's Plutonite® lens material stops every wavelength of ultraviolet radiation from the sun‘s thermonuclear furnace, not just the lower energy form called “UVA.” Even Oakley's clear lenses filter out 100% of all UV
  • Oakley High Definition Optics® (HDO®) lenses optimize safety and performance to meet the uncompromising demands of those who settle for nothing less than the clearest, sharpest, most accurate vision. It offers truer, more accurate vision versus conventional lenses that magnify images and make objects appear shifted from their true position. With HDO, Oakley lenses meet or exceed the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute (the yardstick of performance for the eyewear industry)
  • Impact Protection: Oakley lenses are tested under extreme circumstances to guarantee uncompromising protection against high-mass and high-velocity impact that no other lens offers. Part of the secret is Plutonite®, their durable and optically pure lens material
  • XYZ Optics™: Oakley lenses are cut from a single sheet of material along the same axes to ensure they are in perfect optical alignment. Oakley also tapers the lens thickness from the centre to the edge giving lower light refraction at the periphery and compensating for the overall prismatic effect of the lens curvature. This not only provides greater clarity but also helps reduce eye strain
  • C-5 Alloy®: A blend of five metal compounds that helps combine toughness with flexibility. The alloy bends easily to soak up impact and springs back into shape afterwards. This versatility makes it useful for creating lightweight frames of thin metal, and C-5 competes with titanium for weight and scratch resistance
