Oakley's 'field of view' offers a large field of view without any interruptions
For the Jawbreaker's design the main focus was on how the cyclist would see through the lens, combined with a good fit, ventilation and the best protection. Out of this Oakley's 'field of view' came into being. A super large field of view without interruptions. Naturally, such a large field of view without a good lens is of little use.
The Clear Black Iridium Photochromic lens is ideal for changing conditions.
The lens this Jawbreaker is equipped with the Clear Black Iridium Photochromic lens. Which is, thanks to the range of 23-69% light transmission, suitable for changing conditions. The 23% allows you to ride in the sun, but the 69% also allows you to ride in very cloudy / shady weather. When riding in cloudy weather the lens is transparent, while in the sun the lens is dark grey. Making it have a calm look, both on the inside and on the outside. You keep that transparent look on the inside even when it's at its darkest. It changes from lightest to darkest light transmission. Ideal for a bike bike ride in the woods, for example. The Oakley Jawbreaker Clear Black Iridium Photochromic lens is an ideal lens for cyclists who cycle in changing conditions.

Very impressed so far
I initially purchased a pair of Oakley Radar cycling glasses, which I sent back due to peculiar airflow around the outer aspect of the glasses resulting in eye irritation. The Oakley Jawbreakers have a larger lens and feel like they provide better protection from the wind. The lens seems of very high quality and the arm length adjustability is a nice feature. I often wear aftershokz bone conduction headphones and the arm adjustability ensures a comfortable fit. I am unable to fully comment on the photochromic aspect of the lens due to minimal requirement for a darker lens during autumn in the UK.

These Oakley Jawbreaker Photochromic sungalsses are absolutely Brilliant!!
I've always used very good sunglasses for driving in my car long distances in South Africa and the UK (Serengeti Drivers and Maui Jim) I cycle long distances 400-500km /week (Audax), and wanted proper cycling sunglasses. After much research on cycling forums, I pulled the trigger on the Oakley Jawbreaker Photochromic. I've been using these daily for a few weeks now and these are Brilliant! .... The best way that I can describe them, is that it always feels like you are riding in overcast conditions irrespective of the light situation (not too dark and not too bright) .... when cycling under canopies of dense trees etc, the lenses change almost instantly so you don't have to whip the sunglasses off your face to see where you are riding. The fit is very comfortable and I have also used these when the sun sets. I highly recomend these. The nice thing is that you can buy additional lenses such as the Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm road if you wish to use sunglasses for very bright days.
Dont fog up while riding
They really do the job; now an essential part of my kit
Clear vision in all weather conditions
Super cool looks
Comfy and I can see when I'm trying for streamline
Awesome glasses for cycling. My old glasses had the top bar in direct eye-line when leaning forward for aerodynamics. These show nothing but what's ahead. A bit large for casual wear but great for activity.
Excellent cycling glasses
I’ve always had problems with glasses touching my eyelashes and also with reduced field of view. The Jawbreaker glasses completely solve both these problems. You forget they’re on your face, not needing any adjustment once fitted. They also react fantastical well to changing light. Only slight issue is glare can be a problem.
