Christmas 2018 Ideas – Staff Picks

Here at RxSport we cannot wait for Christmas, but where do you start when it comes to gift shopping?

We’ve had a few members of the RxSport team handpick their favourite kit from the current range:

Laura

Picking my favourite kit from 2018-19 is pretty easy, I love the female specific kit available at the moment.

ROXY ANGIE SRT SKI HELMET - BEET REDRoxy Angie SRT helmet – The fleece lining keeps you nice and warm on the slopes and the Fidlock buckles means you can take it on and off without having to take your gloves off. Also having the new shock response technology really gives you piece of mind knowing you are well protected

GIRO ELLA SKI GOGGLES - BLEACHED OUT / VIVID ROYAL + VIVID INFRAREDGiro Ella Ski Goggles – I love the colourful designs and fleece lining you get in this model and the fact they fit over my glasses so comfortably is a real bonus! The Vivid lenses are great for bringing out the definition in the snow and the fact they are so easy to change with their magnetic system makes them my go to pair for any condition.

OAKLEY TURBINE SUNGLASSES - MATTE BLACK / PRIZM JADE POLARISEDFor me it’s pretty easy. My go-to sunglasses are the Oakley Turbine. The lightweight and wrapped design makes for a stylish but very practical frame that can be worn all day long, with no discomfort.

KREEDOM ROVER SKI GOGGLES - WOOD SATIN / COPPER CHROME + YELLOWNew to RxSport for 2018-19 is the brand Kreedom. Their collection includes three ski goggle styles, but the standout piece to me is their Kreedom Rover Goggles. A quick change magnetic lens design for under £90 is almost unheard of.

ANON INVERT MIPS SKI HELMET - GREYHelmet wise, it’s got to be the Anon Invert MIPS. The Anon Invert MIPS helmet symbolises everything Anon does best as a brand. A sleek, low-profile design which is deceptively feature-packed!

 


Filippo

For someone who snowboards, mountain bikes, road bikes and a few other crazy sports, picking my favourite piece is tricky. So here’s just a few!

SMITH VANTAGE MIPS SKI HELMET - MATTE BLACKSmith Vantage Ski Helmet – The Smith Vantage MIPS (also available in a non-MIPS version) is Smith’s market-leading helmet. They’ve created a helmet that is extremely strong, offering maximum protection, whilst keeping it extremely lightweight. This is down to its hybrid construction combined with Aerocore and Koroyd technology.

ELECTRIC ELECTRON SKI GOGGLES - MATTE BLACK / BLUE CHROME PHOTOCHROMICElectric Electron Ski Goggles – Where do you start on this? With groundbreaking electrochromic lens technology means you’ll never have to change your lens again, no matter what the conditions. A quick press of the button and it’s adaptive LED lens will lighten or darken between three settings, adapting to your conditions. It’s really easy to operate too!

OAKLEY PITCHMAN R - CLEAROakley Pitchman R Optical Glasses – If you’re a Liverpool fan, you may have spotted Jurgen Klopp wearing these throughout this season. The Pitchman R takes inspiration from the Pitchman, but with round lenses (hence the R). Temples created from ultra-light steel make for a lightweight and comfortable frame.

SWEET BUSHWHACKER II CARBON MIPS MOUNTAIN BIKE HELMET - SATIN BLACK METALLICSweet Bushwhacker II Carbon MIPS Bike Helmet – I was a fan of the original Bushwhacker II, but this new model cranks safety and strength up a notch with its integrated carbon fibre shell elements. It’s perfect for those days on the trail!

 


Gareth

As an avid cyclist and duathlon ‘doer’ I’m all about winter training and being able to continue throughout the colder months. Therefore my top picks for winter are focused on exactly that.

First up would be Rudy Project Rydon Sunglasses, but with their Photochromic lenses. Or if you’re like me, with a slightly smaller head you can opt for the new Rudy Project Rydon Slim.

Next up would be a helmet that keeps you visible out on the road, so either the Poc Ventral Spin in Zink Orange, or the Oakley ARO5 in Retina Burn.

Finally, something that was new this year, Oakley’s Prizm Low Light lenses. These have been a gamechanger for those early morning and evening outdoor training sessions, when Prizm Road has been too dark for good visibility. Prizm Low Light really does enhance the road ahead whilst allowing plenty of light through. There’s a great article on Prizm Low Light here.


Antonio

When it comes to goggles, I’m a fan of quick and easy to change lenses, therefore I really like the surge in magnetic lens technology that’s hitting the market.

If I had to pick just two, it would be:

ANON M4 TORIC MFI SKI GOGGLES - BLACK / SONAR RED + SONAR INFRAREDAnon M4 – The Anon M4 was my first introduction to Toric Lenses. This goggle offers a new lens curvature which is optimised for ventilation, peripheral vision and helmet compatibility. Pair this with Zeiss lens technology and it’s a truly incredible goggle. After something a little smaller? Maybe try the M2.

GIRO AGENT SKI GOGGLES - RED PEAK / VIVID ONYX + VIVID INFRAREDGiro Agent – Their infinity lens design is something to behold, whilst providing unmatched peripheral vision and a seriously cool look! Also the fact they’ve got a men’s and women’s variation (women’s is the Eave). The Axis and Ella are also worth a look!

Just like several of our football mad members of staff, you may have mentioned Jurgen Klopp’s great choice of eyewear. But exactly what frame is he rocking?

You can get your hands on your very own pair from RxSport. We offer two lens options in the Pitchman R collection, you can opt for Essilor Lenses, starting at £109.99, or Authentic Oakley Lenses from £259.99.

Stand out, even on the darkest of days.

Oakley’s Retina Burn colourway… love it or hate it, it’s designed to make a statement.

With winter fast approaching, it’s a great choice for those wanting to continue training outdoors whilst staying safe, and visible. So what’s available from Oakley in their increasingly popular Retina Burn style?

Bike Helmets

Let’s kick off with helmets, the Oakley ARO3 and ARO5 road bike collections are available with the striking Retina Burn colour option.

aro3

The ARO3 is designed for the climbers and those who run hot in winter, with increased ventilation, it’s a great option. The Retina Burn colour across the rear of the helmet ensures that you’re as visible as possible to those approaching from the rear.

ARO5

Let’s move to the ARO5, designed traditionally for the sprinters amongst us, with less ventilation but increased aerodynamics. Oakley have kept the Retina Burn – Black combination but swapped it around, making this helmet beautifully bright from every angle. Whether you’re looking to make a statement in summer, or stand out and stay safe in the winter months.

Sunglasses

When it comes to sunglasses, you’re spoiled for choice when looking for Retina Burn frames. Just some of our favourites are shown above – the Flight Jacket, Field Jacket, both new for 2018. The infamous Jawbreaker, and the every popular Radar EV Path.

Don’t forget, Oakley sunglasses are also available in prescription with official Oakley lenses. Allowing you to truly customise your own frame and lens combination. Whether you’re looking for a clear lens, grey lens or a transition tint.

Shop prescription here.

Everyday Eyewear

Love Retina Burn but looking for everyday frames? Fear not, Oakley have a nod to the Retina Burn styling in their Crossrange collection.

You can even shop for replacement Crosslink Pitch temples with their grey smoke and retina burn temple kit.
