9 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.
Meets ANSI Z87.1 Impact Standards - Impact protection based upon ANSI Z87.1 test methods for high mass and high velocity impact resistance.
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 blocking 100% of UV 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.
Plutonite 100% UV Protection - Lightweight material offering comfort and protection against impact and ultraviolet radiation.
The impact-resistant material blocks 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC blue light.
XYZ Optics® - Maintains clarity all the way to the lens periphery where conventional lenses normally distort vision.
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. Polarized sunglasses are ideal for driving, where you get glare from your dash, your windshield and other vehicles. They perform much better than standard sunglasses – reducing eye strain and helping you see better – around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
