Oakley’s New Field and Flight Jacket Sunglasses

Oakley’s heritage with cycling runs deep and while there have been some super kooky (hey, in a good way!) designs over the years, their latest two additions offer vivid aesthetics, resulting from the brand’s ongoing attempt at making the best looking, best performing eyewear for cycling. Both the Field and Flight jackets were designed with ventilation and full-frame viewing, ideal for on and off-road riding. Head to your local Oakley dealer to check them out in person and to Oakley for more information and colors.

The Rapha Classic Sunglasses



I love it when Rapha does small projects like this. Especially when they’re made either in the UK or in the case of sunglasses, Italy. Mazzucchelli 1849 and Carl Zeiss Vision have created sunglasses for the luxury cycling brand and you know what? They look damn good. Check out more details below and see the full collection at Rapha.

Oakley’s Prizm Trail Radarlock Path

Oakley’s Prizm Trail Radarlock Path

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.
