Oakley: Chas Christiansen – One Obsession

Yes, Chas!

“What started off as a way to pay the rent in San Francisco, soon turned into a new way of life for Chas Christiansen. Messenger cycling opened up a world of opportunity and introduced Chas to an international community of like-minded people. Taking his bike everywhere that he goes, travelling the globe in search of new people, cultures and experiences.”

Nice one, Oakley.

Oakley’s Prizm Trail Radarlock Path
Oakley_Trail-6

For the most part, I only wear sunglasses on the road, at least here in Austin anyway. With all the sharp, spiky plant life here, sometimes I’d force myself to wear eyewear but was never 100% content with it. I’ve always had an issue with how sunglasses read the splotchy light found in the woods on my local trails. It was either intense and white, or shaded and dark, leaving little to no middle ground or time to adjust and it was difficult to make out details.

A few of my friends here started wearing these Oakley Prizm Trail sunglasses and swore by them for trail clarity, so I picked up a pair. Sure enough, after wearing these glasses for a few rides, the difference was clear. Let me clarify that, they made a huge difference. Oakley achieves this through a material they call Plutonite and while it sounds like a marketing ploy, the performance backs it up incredibly well.

Fairends Oakley Jawbones

I don’t usually get “artsy” with product shots but I’ve been digging the new Fairends edition Jawbone sunglasses. The black crystal frame looks great with the signature Fairends blue and red accents. You can see plenty more product shots over at Fairends or just pick up a pair. They’ve got Frogskins as well.
