Detailed product description
The Radar EV’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 generous 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:
Prizm Sapphire Snow
The Radar EV Prizm Sapphire Snow lens is suited for sunny and partly overcast days thanks to its 20% light transmittance. The Prizm technology filters colours you don’t want to see and turns dull colours into warmer colours, which leads to better colour contrast. At first glance, the lens seems to have a blue colour, but the Sapphire Snow can ‘change’ colour. It’s no photochromic lens, but when light enters the lens from behind, it looks more pink than blue. This makes its user look through a mellow, comfortable pink lens. The more outside light hits the lens, the bluer it becomes. This gives it a light transmittance of 11% to 20%, which makes it a perfect lens for sunny and slightly overcast weather. The lens primarily picks up and filters blue colours to a more accurate colour waveform. This not only creates a clearer and deeper colour blue, but also red and green. This ‘colour improvement’ is more relaxing for the eyes throughout the day. The Radar EV Prizm Sapphire Snow lens is very suited for cyclists that enjoy cycling on sunny days, but don’t want to switch lenses when it gets cloudy.
