Oakley Jawbreaker Sunglasses

May 18, 2015

“It really helps them see the trail”, commented Steve Blick, Oakley’s sports marketing manger.

JAWBREAKER-809-268

 

 

 

First seen in public was the prototype on the first stage of the 2014 Tour de France, and a second time at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, the Oakley Jawbreaker sunglasses appear to be an inseparable item for outdoor sports especially mountain biking and the like.

There were the Jawbones (also known as the Racing Jackets) and this year there are the Jawbreakers as the second release from Oakley. Although resembling its predecessor in looks, the Jawbreakers eclipse with a single lens instead of two. As a result, the Jawbreakers offer simplicity and an unobstructed range of sight while the lens continues to be interchangeable.

The Oakley Jawbreaker sunglasses collection inherits Oakley’s patent plutonite lens material. As a piece of modern sport gear, the lightweight plutonite lens makes both maximum protection against broad band UV, all UVA UVB and UVC as well as heavy physical impact possible.

On top of the patent material, the Jawbreakers are characterised by their adaptability and adjustability. Depending on the customer’s need, plutonite lenses with a combination of different lens features are available.

One of them is Oakley’s patent prizm technology that debuted towards the end of last year in their goggle lines and now for first time ever, is incorporated into Oakley’s sports performance sunglasses. With this feature, the Jawbreakers’ vision is enhanced in both contrast and visibility under a wide range of lighting conditions.

The Jawbreakers also come in polarised lens. As common as it is in our sunglasses vocabulary, a brief clarification might just be useful to new sports gear customers. What polarised lenses tackle is glare that obscure vision from liquid under sunlight and other reflective surfaces. Instead of toning them down like conventional tinted lenses, polarised lens eliminate them completely, making them perfect for outdoor activities like fishing, water sports and mountain biking.

Another option is to add an Iridium coating. With an iridium coating, the lens assumes a reflective quality like that of a mirror that helps reduce glare while keeping your eyes hidden. Talk about fashion and function.

Customers are free to mix and match the lens features above to customise the Jawbreakers for their own specific styles and needs. In addition to being customised, these lenses are interchangeable. Take for instance a pair of black iridium polarised lens for the dazzling sunray during the day and a pair of HI yellow lens for the lack of it at night.

The secret to the Jawbreakers’ light weight is their frame material made with O Matter, known for its high durability without compromising protection and comfort. These arms are also extendible to make sure they stay comfortably on the face of each individual user.
