Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm Road Sunglasses
With the brand originating in California, you would expect the Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm Road Sunglasses to be on point style-wise, and from your first glance, there are no questions that they are.
Cyclists will be pleased to see a pair of glasses with improved vision in the upper peripheral region, which makes a lot of sense for cycling glasses as we spend a lot of time with our heads tipped forward. Surely Chris Froome, whose stem staring style has got him in a scrape or two, will be first in line for a set of these?
If you do still find yourself in a spot of bother though, despite the improved visibility and sharp contrast created by the Prizm lens coated in iridium lens that optimises colours, then you can be safe in the knowledge that the High Definition Optics® surpass the requirements of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for impact resistance, optical clarity and visual fidelity.
Lightweight design does not compromise durability or ventilation, as the surge ports enable you to keep your cool. This almost seems to render the soft hydrophilic synthetic Unobtainium® secure fit redundant as there is no sweat to destabilise these glasses.
Switchlock™ Technology makes swapping lenses to suit the conditions a simple process or achieve a different look. Whatever you decide on, you will be relieved to know that they will look as good on your helmet as they do on your face with three different lengths for helmet compatibility in the adjustable temples.
As the name suggests then, these are an incredibly striking pair of sunglasses.
