Oakley’s reputation of being the best in the world is upheld year after year with endless releases of timeless classics and quality modern styles. Its immense variety perfectly complements the diverse market that their products are aimed at, from the sleek and stealthy Gauge 8 to the hardcore Jawbreaker; a benchmark in Oakley’s excellence in sports performance eyewear.
Since founder Jim Jannard created the Eyeshades in 1984 Oakley has become the definitive supplier of performance eyewear for professional athletes. The Oakley range is now extremely diverse, offering frames and lenses for practically any application.
Innovation is something that, year upon year, Oakley excels in. Revolutionary Plutonite lens material combined with Oakley’s unparalleled Prizm technology gives you an edge over rivals on the sports field and sharpens up your vision on a daily basis.
Style across the board is a trademark for Oakley. From the true versatility of the Crossrange; a model that really pinpoints Oakley’s current viewpoint of adaptability to the cutting-edge Radar Pace, a frame born out of ingenuity and years of development.
Decades of research, development, trial and error has lead Oakley to where they are now, a true market leader. This is thanks to its collaborations with the world's top athletes; from Mark Cavendish competing in the Olympic Games to Masters Champion Bubba Watson, the desire to meet the demands of their extreme adventures has guided Oakley on the path to perfection. Focusing on their needs as athletes and in everyday life, Oakley has developed lenses and frames that keep you on top of your game.
“Engineering breakthroughs in structural materials allow Oakley to produce lightweight, high-performance frames that maintain superior protection and comfort.” - Oakley
The pinnacle of Oakley’s frame development. O Matter is lightweight, durable and flexible, perfect for crafting sports and lifestyle frames.
Created through a fusion of five metallic compounds, C-5 Alloy provides the framework for Oakley’s timeless wire frames.
A frame material at the cutting edge of science. Carbon Fibre frames ooze class and provide a feather light feel to your sunglasses.
Three Point Fit
Keeping lenses in precise optical alignment is another method Oakley use to get the best possible vision. Aligning lenses correctly helps to prevent distortion that can occur during use. The Three-Point Fit system also maximises protection by ensuring only 3 components of the frame are in contact with your face; the bridge of the nose and at the end of each temple.
Three-Point Fit helps to eliminate and reduce discomfort that some frames can give you when not fitting correctly. Sunglasses sit around some of the most sensitive parts of the human body and close to some pressure points, relieving any tension on these areas gives a much more comfortable experience.
“Oakley High Definition Optics (HDO) lenses optimize safety and performance to meet the uncompromising demands of professional athletes who settle for nothing less than the clearest, sharpest, most accurate vision.” - Oakley
Using Oakley’s HDO lenses gives you an edge over competitors. Oakley lenses help you focus on the target to offer clearer, sharper and more accurate vision. Making sure you don’t settle for anything less than perfection when any distortion in your lens can throw you off your game.
Regular lenses distort images by not providing an accurate focal point, meaning images become blurry and sometimes seem magnified. Oakley lenses meet or exceed the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute to offer much better protection than other lenses.
Superior to standard polycarbonate lens material, Oakley’s proprietary blend of elements gives remarkable clarity and strength.
Every Oakley lens exceeds the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for high-mass and high-velocity impacts. This means your eyes can enjoy protection worthy of professional athletes.
Oakley HD Polarised Lenses
Oakley’s HD Polarised lenses filter out 99% of reflected glare. This means you can enjoy clearer, more comfortable views for longer without feeling eyestrain or fatigue.
With a reduction in glare comes enhanced clarity. Colours will appear rich rather than washed out, so you get the truest picture of your surroundings.
From road cycling to fishing; Oakley's HD Polarised lenses provide undeniably sharp vision by cutting through glare to help you focus on what matters.
