Detailed product description
Oakley studied the way people looked through the lens with the Radar EV. This information has led to a 10% larger field of view -what you can see when looking through the lens- compared to the old Oakley Radar. Oakley created a specific Radar EV lens for every situation. This Oakley Radar EV Photochromic comes with a photochromic lens. This transitional lens makes it suitable for virtually all conditions. It has a light transmittance of between 23 and 69%. The lens is suitable for both sunny and cloudy days.
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 offer a field of view that is as large as necessary without 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- 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.
Type of Oakley Lens
Oakley Clear Black Iridium Photochromic
The Oakley Radar EV Clear Black Iridium 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 Radar Clear Black Photochromic lens is the perfect lens for the rider who rides in varying weather conditions.
