Detailed product description
For the Radar EV, Oakley considered how its users looked through the lens. This information resulted in the field of view now being a whopping 10% larger compared to its older counterpart, the Oakley Radar.
Fit & Protection
A good fit means better results and protection. The combination of the flexible, durable O-matter material with the Plutonite lenses guarantee maximum protection in all conditions!
HDO stands for High Definition Optics, which in turn refers to the curvature of the lens itself. This curvature matches the natural curve of your eyes, ensuring you’ve always got a crystal clear and distortion-free view.
Field of View
Special optimised lens for cycling. The largest challenge was creating a lens that has a certain shape and size without the frame obstructing your view. This appeared a tough one, because during cycling you often have your head down, while you are looking up. But with this lens Oakley offers a field of view that is as large as necessary without any blind spots.
Impact resistant frame material that can handle the most extreme of conditions. This material is super light but incredibly durable. Controlled flexibility increases the impact resistance and also helps improve everyday comfort.
Plutonite lens material
One of the most optically pure materials used in modern glasses. The material ensures a clear view of what’s ahead and is capable of withstanding almost any impact. The lens filters out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC, and harmful blue light frequencies up to 400 nm. There’s no separate coating on the lens. Rather, the lens itself is what offers protection from UV rays.
After decades of innovation, Oakley Performance glasses offer an incredible level of no-compromise protection against high speed impacts and heavy impacts. The protection comes from the use of high-grade materials and the unique Oakley lens/frame design combination.
A patented innovation which ensures the frame only touches the nose and sides of your head. This system ensures the lens is optimally aligned and the glasses feel comfortable, without causing the pressure points found with glasses fitted with hooked legs.
Thanks to the special “surge” ports, the air is channelled over the lenses to prevent them from fogging up. This way these glasses better meet the wishes of their users.
The Special Prizm lenses provide an unprecedented regulated light transmission, resulting in an improved colour contrast and improved visibility of objects. The Oakley Prizm lens has a substantial reduction of glare and adjusted light transmittance thanks to the Iridium lens coating.
Type of Oakley Prizm Lens:
The Oakley Radar EV Prizm Road lens is Oakley’s all-round cycling lens. Its 20% light transmission makes it suited for cycling during sunny as well as cloudy days. The Prizm technology filters the colours you don’t want to see and dull colours become ‘warmer’, which results in better contrast. Your depth perception is what separates the Road lens from the rest. Because of this depth perception, you can more clearly distinguish colours and spot and avoid bumps in the road. It’ll also be easier to discern details, from road markings to fellow road users. Blue skies and green grass become brighter. This ‘enhanced colour’ is much more soothing for your eyes throughout the day. The Radar EV Prizm Road lens is an ideal lens for cycling in all circumstances.
