When it comes to sports, every second counts, every detail matters and even the smallest move can have the greatest impact. Sports-dedicated eyewear brand Oakley, believes in great attention to detail, and this is evident in its fierce passion for design and innovation to create eyewear that can really keep up with you. Oakley sunglasses are synonymous with sport, action, adrenaline – and they deliver everything they promise. Art and science is very much at work with every pair of sunglasses, and there is an important balance between performance and recreation, as technology meets contemporary style. Sun & Sand Sports online now sells Oakley sunglasses suited for men, women and kids, with a “Can’t Stop” attitude to go with it.
Because a clear view of your environment and your opponent is vital in any competition, Oakley has redefined the eyewear industry by creating High Definition Optics lenses to enhance performance and safety for different activities. Let’s take a closer look at the lens technology:
The Flak® Draft multi-sport sunglasses have a semi-rimless design with Plutonite® material that filters 100% harmful UV rays. The lenses are anti-fog and can be interchangeable with a rapid release trigger. The PRIZM™ Road lens technology is made for the road – whether cycling, driving or running. It improves vision in both bright and dark settings, and can help see changes in road surface for quick reaction time.
For unobstructed views and a better focus, the rimless and lightweight EVZero™ Path™ sunglasses are engineered with a Plutonite® UV shield. The Three-Point Fit, aligned from the bridge of the nose and back of the temples, holds the sunglasses in place and avoids any discomfort, while the no-slip earsocks and nosepads increase grip even in sweaty situations. The PRIZM™ Golf lens maximises colour contrast so you can read the golf course better and gauge ball distance with precision.
Photochromic is a light adaptive lens, which reacts to UV making a dye in the lens go from clear to dark, or vice versa depending on the strength of UV. This is a bestseller for those training early or late when the sun is coming up or down – and when going to or from darkness. This lens is not suitable for conditions of rapid light change – for example, when mountain biking in a forest. The reaction to UV is instant, but the return to clear takes about 30-40 seconds. This lens is ideal for road runners, triathletes and road cyclists.
The Radar® EV Path™ comes in a kids’ size too. It offers an extended field of vision, impact resistance and colour clarity. The Unobtainium® earsocks and nosepads increase the grip, and the Three-Point Fit is especially aligned to your face for comfort.
