Detailed product description
The Jawbreaker’s creation process included a thorough look at how its users see through the lens. This research resulted in the field of view now being a whopping 40% larger compared to other glasses models. The Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm is deliverable with different lens types. Oakley made a specific Jawbreaker lens for every circumstance. This Jawbreaker is equipped with the Prizm Trail variant that was made with forest cyclists in mind. It offers better colour distinction that allows you to react faster to obstacles. It also has a high light transmittance, which makes it ideal to use in dark and cloudy conditions.
The Switchlock system ensures the lens is quicker and easier to switch out!
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 turned out to be a challenge, because during cycling you often have your head angled down, while you are looking up. With this lens Oakley offers a field of view that is as large as necessary without blind spots.
Owing to 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.
Fit & Protection
A snug fit means better results and protection. Combining the flexible and durable O-Matter material with Plutonite lenses guarantee maximum protection in all circumstances.
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.
Thanks to the special “surge” ports, the air is channelled over the lenses to prevent them from fogging up. This way the Jawbreaker better meets the ventilation needs of its users.
Adjustable Temple Lengths
Thanks to the adjustable temple lengths, the Jawbreaker has three settings for the best fit.
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.
The Special Prizm lenses provide an unprecedented regulated light transmission, resulting in an improved colour contrast and improved visibility of objects.
Type of Oakley Prizm Lens:
The Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm Trail lens is tailored to dark or cloudy circumstances because of its 37% light transmittance. The Prizm filters colours you don’t want to see and turns dull colours into warmer colours, which leads to better colour contrast. Red, green and brown become deeper and clearer compared to other colours, that are repelled more. These colours are most common in forests. This makes it easier for you to distinguish details between dense trees and sandy areas, something which is very common in forests. It also allows you to react faster to obstacles in your way and avoid them. Another benefit of this improved colour is that it is more relaxing for your eyes throughout the day. The Jawbreaker Prizm Trail is an ideal lens for cycling in dark or cloudy conditions, but can also be used in sunny weather.
