Highlights & Technologies:

The durable, lightweight and very comfortable O-MATTER frame material increases protection and provides a flexible fit.

A hydrophilic material used for nose pads and temple ends. The grip increases as the level of moisture (sweat) rises.

The PRIZM lens technology enhances contrasts and fine-tunes vision for different kinds of sport and environments. The lenses are suitable for a wide range of light conditions so that there is no need to change them.

One of the optically purest materials used for glasses nowadays. It increases clarity and impact resistance and filters 100% of all UV-A, UV-B and UV-C rays as well as harmful blue light up to 400 nm. The UV protection is not achieved by a coating, but by the lens material itself.

OAKLEY has developed High Definition Optics (HDO). This term refers to a number of patented lens technologies developed in-house for special optical accuracy and fidelity. However, the HDO technology stands out not only for precision, but also for innovative impact resistance. HDO meets strict safety standards and ensures a 100% filtering of UV light. OAKLEY HDO protects the eyes and makes sure visual information will reach the brain with maximum precision.

PRIZM is an OAKLEY lens technology that offers optimized visibility for specific kinds of sports and activities by fine-tuning individual wavelengths of colour. As it emphasizes colours where the eye is most sensitive to detail, PRIZM improves performance and safety. Thanks to the use of specially manufactured lens tints, the OAKLEY PRIZM technology is able to filter light that affects vision in a negative way and to emphasize colours required for perfect performance/vision. The PRIZM technology fine-tunes vision for specific sports and environments and thus sharpens visual acuity to reveal nuances that would be missed by the naked eye.
PRIZM ROAD lenses help endurance athletes to better see changes in road surfaces and obstacles like small rocks and potholes, so that they can react quickly and achieve peak performances. Besides, the lenses enhance contrasts for increased safety on public roads. The lenses offer optimized vision in bright light and in the shadows. White and yellow road markings are clearly visible and traffic signals brighter. Besides, the colours of sky and green are intensified for a pleasant ride.
Light transmission: approx. 20%

The PRIZM TRAIL TORCH lenses are the successor of the popular PRIZM TRAIL lenses. Their pale pink basis with Torch Iridium Coating combines contrast enhancement and excellent sun protection with reduced glare for even better depth perception and improved colour perception on all trails, including dusty desert trails, granite, red rocks, Alpine forest etc.
