Featuring cutting-edge lens technology, you’ll be able to table to tackle your most rugged adventures. Once you see how impressive our favorite Oakley features are, you’ll understand why we selected these as our favorite Oakleys.
Oakley uses a special nylon material called O Matter for many of its frames. It’s 25% lighter than the acetate many other brands use and is twice as strong. The material is more heat and cold-resistant which prevents the frame from becoming brittle or breaking as easily. This is a big advantage when taking into account the types of outdoor activities performed while wearing Oakleys. Whether you’re on the snow or going for first place in your next motocross race, O Matter frames are up to the test.
When it comes to performance, it all starts with the right fit. Oakley’s 3-Point Fit is a patented frame technology that ensures great comfort, while only touching the wearer’s head in three places. With the bridge and rear of the temples touching the head in order to reduce pressure, wearing this pair will feel like wearing nothing at all.
Oakley’s PRIZM lenses are designed to fine-tune vision for a variety of sports and harsh environments. This brand-new technology significantly enhances detail and contrast in order to provide huge improvements in performance and clarity in any situation. Whether for the casual businessman looking for the perfect, everyday pair, or the extreme sports enthusiasts with a penchant for rigorous activity, there’s a version of PRIZMs for every occasion.
Created in 1975, Unobtainium was the first material patented by Oakley to be used on specific temple tips and nose pads. A key part of the brand’s 3-Point Fit, the material ensures the best possible comfort by increasing grip in order to keep the frame in place without slipping. This type of material plays an integral role in maintaining top performance in a variety of sports.
With the addition of innovative color technology, the brand has set itself apart yet again. Oakley Iridium is a proprietary tint and molecular anti-glare coating added to the lenses, making it even better for any type of condition you can imagine. The tint comes in a variety of colors, each formulated and designed for the right balance between light reflection, transmission, and absorption of the lens, depending on the environment and activity.
High Definition Optics
This lens technology optimizes safety and performance to meet the uncompromising demands of professional athletes who will settle for nothing less than the clearest, sharpest, and most accurate vision. It offers truer, more accurate vision versus conventional lenses that magnify images and make objects appear shifted from their true position. When athletes need accurate imaging from their eyewear, nothing comes close to Oakley’s High Definition Optics.
