6 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 6 base styles have a “flatter” look. 8-9 base curves hug closer to the face.
C-5™ Alloy - Five metal compounds are superheated to create this performance alloy that maintains durability, even in lightweight frame designs.
Three-Point Fit - Oakley’s unique Three-Point Fit holds the lenses in precise optical alignment. Their frame materials balance durability and comfort with impact absorption for athletic competition, and these frame geometries maximize your peripheral vision.
Unobtainium Grip - Thanks to Unobtainium, the frame actually grips better when you sweat. The textured Unobtainium ear and nose pads add comfort to your wearing experience.
These measurements include the width of the lens, the width of the bridge, the height of the lens and the length of the arms measured in that order.
HD Polarized - By selectively filtering directional light, glare from roads, water, and snow is reduced greatly.
High Definition Optics® (HDO®) - Engineered for a clearer, sharper image with unrivaled impact resistance and 100% UV filtering.
Iridium® - A lens coating specifically formulated for optimal balance between reflection, transmission and absorption.
Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Fully polarized sunglasses reduce eye strain and help you see better around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
