TechnologyOakley'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.
Plutonite Lens MaterialOne 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.
SwitchlockThe Switchlock system allows you to easily and quickly swap lenses!
O-MatterImpact 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 comfort.
Impact ProtectionAfter decades of innovation, Oakley Performance glasses offer an incredible level of no-compromise protection against high speed- and heavy impacts. The protection comes from the use of high-grade materials and the unique Oakley lens/frame design combination.
Fit & ProtectionA 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!
VentilationThanks 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.
Adjustable stemsThanks to the adjustable earpieces, these glasses have 3 possible settings so fit perfectly.
HDOHDO 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.
Photochromic lensThe Photochromic lens technology automatically darkens the lens when the amount of UV light increases. It automatically adapts back to a lighter shade when conditions change and become more overcast. Even the lighter lens will still offer 100% UV protection.

Worth the money.
Have been a while contemplating buying a pair for quite a while. Cost being the main thing holding me back. Finally bit the bullet and they are so worth it. Fit is great and the lenses are superb. If you are like me then proceed to checkout. You won’t regret it.
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.
Arm length adjustability
Excellent unobstructed vision
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.
Can buy other lenses for different light condition
