New Oakley Prizm Lens Tints

We’re excited to announce the arrival of the latest lens tints in Oakley’s Prizm collection.

Two standout favourites of ours are the Prizm Road Black and Prizm Trail Torch tints from their sports specific range.

Prizm Road Black is a new variation of the original Prizm Road tint and is perfect for both Road Cycling and Road Running. Prizm Road Black is designed for use in medium to bright light, whereas the original Prizm Road tint was a great all rounder from low to bright lights. So, if the new tint supposedly isn’t as versatile, why do we love it so much? Honestly,  one reason is simply an aesthetics thing, it simply looks cooler, having done away with the original pink tint. Another reason is the fact it’s that little bit darker, it’s great in bright conditions, when sometimes the original Prizm Road tint sometimes felt not quite dark enough. If you pair the Prizm Road Black lenses with a pair of Prizm Low Light lenses, you’re honestly on to a winning combination for all conditions. Discover the full collection of Prizm Road sunglasses at RxSport

Prizm Road Black Key Facts:

  • Suggested sports: Road Cycling, Road Running
  • Lighting conditions: Medium to Bright
  • VLT: 11%

Prizm Trail Torch is a new variation of Prizm Trail and is perfect for MTB riding and Trail Running. Prizm Trail Torch is designed for medium to bright light conditions, whereas the original Prizm Trail tint was great in low to medium conditions.

Introducing The Oakley DRT5 MTB Helmet

When Oakley released their ARO collection (ARO3, ARO5 and ARO7) of Road Cycling helmets in 2018, we knew it wouldn’t be long until an MTB helmet would be on the cards.

At Eurobike 2018 the DRT5 was launched and the buzz has been incredible. Teasing the industry with not only a visually stunning helmet, but also new features unseen on a helmet to date. The Oakley DRT5 mountain bike helmet is up to the challenge of any trail. Equipped with MIPS technology as standard, and unique features including an eyewear stowing mechanism on the rear and a sweat-wicking silicone brow pad.

Eyewear Landing Zone – The DRT5 has, unsurprisingly, been designed with eyewear in mind. Securely store your sunglasses when unworn using the integrated stowing mechanism found on the rear of the helmet. Secure clasps keep your sunglasses from coming loose when on the move.

Washable silicone sweat brow pad – The helmet’s interior sports a washable silicone gel sweat guard which collects and diverts sweat from the forehead and out of your peepers.

Key Facts:

  • Versatile trial helmet featuring MIPS technology and articulating visor
  • 13 ventilation channels help to maximise airflow and maintain comfort when on the move
  • Rear eyewear stowing mechanism allows safe storage of sunglasses when not worn
  • Sweat-wicking silicone brow pad and adjustable BOA 360° fit system
  • Certification: CE EN 1078:2012; Weight: 430g

The DRT5 is available in four colour options at RxSport and two sizes. Medium (54cm – 58cm) and Large (56cm – 60cm).

The Oakley – Vetements Collaboration = x Oakley Spike Glasses

When fashion designers collaborate with sports companies the results are always interesting.

Earlier this year we came across prototype imagery of Vetements Spring/Summer 2019 punk-tinged collection which including their collaboration with Oakley… It teased the idea of a drastic new addition to one of our favourite Oakley sports frames.

So what exactly were they working on? Designer Demna Gvasalia created an iridescent-neon collection of spike-adorned glasses that used the Oakley EV Zero Path as its base. The latest collaboration offers two styles, the X Oakley Spikes 200 (RRP £680) and X Oakley Spikes 400 (RRP £790) and from what we can see, they’ve already sold out worldwide!

Both styles feature Vetements laser-engraved onto the lens, but this is far from their main feature, as you may notice, they are adorned with spikes. The 200 model has a modest three spikes on either side of the frame, whereas the 400 has an entire row of spikes across the bottom of the frame.

This isn’t something we’ll be adding to the RxSport collection for 2019 but we’d love to hear your thoughts!
