The New Oakley Ahyris Collection

Oakley™ has launched Ahyris, a sun and optical lifestyle collection. Featuring a unified design aesthetic that is symbolic of, and takes cues from the eye.

Oakley.com states that “the name ‘Ahy-Ris’ finds its source in the collection’s inspiration, the iris of the eye, the window to the soul. The inspiration is manifested throughout the collection, in the form of a singular design element that delivers a unique mechanical function for connecting a center frame and temples together for a distinct look”.

The Oakley Ahyris collection is designed to challenge and redefine the way traditional eyewear is constructed, using one single design element. From the new Ahyris collection, RxSport will be stocking three different models of frames and lenses including: Coldfuse, Chrystl and Apparition.

Coldfuse SunglassesColdfuse
Be anything but ordinary in the new Oakley™ Coldfuse that redefines not only the look but the construction of traditional lifestyle eyewear. The technical design uses a single element to hold together the 24 pieces of the eyewear — creating a truly progressive aesthetic that inspires confidence and self-expression.

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!

For summer 2019 Oakley have launched their hotly anticipated Sutro sunglasses. A single lens shield design that is bang on trend with other brands such as 100% and Smith Optics.

They’ve certainly not skimped on the technology either, with Prizm technology in their lens for colour and clarity enhancing. A frame made of durable, yet lightweight O Matter paired with Unobtanium nosepads makes for a solid frame.
