Oakley Youth Fit – Everything you need to know to kit out the kids

May 2017

There has always been something of a gap in the market with Oakley and their limitations on small frames, until now!

2017 has seen a brand new range of frames designed for those of us with smaller faces and for the kids.

The Quarter Jacket has long been a firm favourite among kids and adults but now there’s some new contenders!

Oakley Turbine XS

“Engineered for performance that would make a sport frame jealous, a coveted lifestyle design has been specially sized for youth, and its clean lines of lightweight O Matter™ are matched with Unobtainium® components and interchangeable icons.” – Oakley

This sleek new frame takes its inspiration from one of Oakley’s best sellers, the Turbine. A truly versatile frame that takes anything in its stride, perfect for the kids!

The size of the frame has been specially engineered to fit smaller faces while still maintaining the classic Oakley quality. The Turbine XS comes in a variety of lens tints and also includes Prizm and Polarised options, great for use around water! The variety of lens tints that the Turbine XS comes with makes it perfect for any summer activity, from Fishing to Cricket, it covers it all!3 | 2

The beauty of the Turbine XS and Oakley’s youth fit range is that they aren’t specifically for kids, they also fit those of us with a smaller face. How do we know? Well look no further…

RxSport’s resident model, Freddie has been waiting for this moment since he got here so here! After trying on anything and everything under the sun, we have finally found a range that fit Freddie!

Oakley Radar EV XS Path

“A milestone in the heritage of performance is now available for youth, with sizing that brings all the breakthroughs of a revolutionary design to young athletes who need the benefits of protection and an extended field of vision in their upward view.” – Oakley

A true Oakley icon can now be found in a youth fit! Still the same quality and style, just scaled down. The Radar EV XS brings the technological excellence of the best-selling Radar EV Path and scales it down to a size suitable for youth faces. A perfect choice for young athletes including runners, cyclists and golfers.

4 | 4The Radar EV XS Path is a fantastic alternative to the classic Radar EV and those who may find the shield design a bit big on their face. Be careful though, they look exactly the same, so make sure you get the right one!

Oakley have included their iconic Prizm sports lenses with the Radar EV XS, including Prizm Road, Prizm Golf and Prizm Field. Making them an ideal companion for your up and coming sports stars!

This model comes with the Path lens variant. A slightly shallower lens with a contour to follow the shape of the cheek and sit comfortably on the face, Oakley’s most popular lens shape!

Again, Freddie took this opportunity to test out the Radar EV XS, they fit pretty well and just look how happy he is!

Oakley Quarter Jacket

“Specially engineered for youth faces, Quarter Jacket™ blends the convenience of an interchangeable lens design with the clarity and protection of High Definition Optics® so the new generation of athletes can take advantage of Oakley innovation.” – Oakley

The Quarter Jacket is something of a staple in the Oakley Youth Fit collection. Featuring styling that closely resembles the best selling Flak Jacket series, the Quarter Jacket is a scaled down version of one of Oakley’s masterpieces.

The Quarter Jacket has proven popular with kids and adults alike for us here, especially in prescription! We find it a great alternative to the often larger and bulkier frames of the Flak 2.0. So if you’ve got a slightly smaller face then this might be the frame for you!1 2 | 6

Ideal for sports and also a good looking casual frame, the Quarter Jacket provides the ultimate in versatility. A great option for your young guns on their quest for sporting excellence or just as a great quality pair of glasses for every day use!

Back to our model, the Quarter Jacket was one of the first Eureka moments we had with Freddie trying frames on! We thought it was going to be the only frame that actually fit and now Oakley bring out more, the world is his oyster!

Enjoying the early summer sun in your Oakley’s? Send us in your pics, we love seeing where in the world our sunnies go!
