Detailed product description
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.
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 offer unparalleled levels of regulated light transmittance, which results in improved colour contrast and object visibility. The Oakley Prizm lens also significantly reduces glare and has an altered light transmittance because of the Iridium coating on the lens.
The Photochromic lens technology automatically darkens the lens when the UV-levels climb, and makes them more transparent as conditions get darker. All this time, the lens will offer you 100% UV protection.
Type Oakley Lens
The Oakley Racing Jacket Prizm Road lens is the allround lens by Oakley. It has 20% light transmittance so suitable for riding in the sun and in the shade. The Prizm technology regulates all colours by flattening out colours you don’t want to see, dull colours become warmer, which all results in better contrast. Your depth perception is what makes the Road lens different. This perception allows you to distinguish between colours and irregularities on the road so you can avoid those. Details between the lines on the road and other road users are also clearer to see. The blue sky and green grass as well. This colour improvement is relaxing for the eye throughout the day. The Racing Jacket Prizm Road lens is perfect for the all round cyclist.
The Racing Jacket Prizm Trail lens is suitable for cloudy conditions, thanks to the 37% light transmittance. The Prizm technology regulates all colours by flattening out colours you don’t want to see, dull colours become warmer, which all results in better contrast. Red, Green, and brown are deeper compared to other colours that are made dull. These colours are foresty colours, so you can distinguish between details and sandy and woody colours, which allows you to react faster if you have to avoid obstacles. This colour improvement is relaxing for the eye throughout the day. The Racing Jacket Prizm Trail lens is the ideal lens for the cyclist who mostly rides in cloudy / shadowy conditions, and sometimes in the sun.
Oakley Clear Black Photochromic
The Oakley Racing Jacket Clear Black Photochromic lens is, because of its 23-69% light transmittance range suitable for varying weather conditions. With 23% it’s fine to ride in the sun, but with 69% also in cloudy weather. If you ride on cloudy days, the lens is transparent, in the sun it’s dark grey. This way it doesn’t look neutral on the outside, but also on the inside. You keep the transparent look on the inside also when it’s at its darkest. It can change in 10 seconds from the lightest to the darkest transmittance. Perfect when you use it to ride in the woods. The Oakley Racing Jacket Clear Black Photochromic lens is the perfect lens for the rider who rides in varying weather conditions.
The Racing Jacket lens by Oakley is because of the 93% light transmittance only suitable for use in low-light conditions.

The Racing Jacket lens is the perfect lens for the cyclist who mostly rides in the dark and wants the best protection for their eyes.
The Oakley Racing Jacket Yellow lens is with its 90% light transmittance suitable for dark days. The yellow lens has a contrast-increasing yellow look on the inside and outside. It makes sure all bright colours are regulated for a better sight. The Racing Jacket Yellow Iridium lens is perfect for the cyclist who rides in dark/shady conditions, and wants more contrast.
