If you’ve been following this year’s Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, it won’t have escaped your attention that many Olympic competitors have taken visual precautions against the sun, snow and ice. Be it wraparound sunglasses or goggles, serious winter sports athletes acknowledge the dangers of competing without eye protection and will go to great lengths to ensure they are protected from any harm.
Olympic disciplines such as speed skating, cross-country skiing and snowboarding require athletes to travel at enormous speeds, during which they are very vulnerable to the elements and accidents. Wearing sunglasses or goggles designed for sport by a reputable brand like Oakley, reduces their chances of any eye injuries and can also enhance their performance.
Oakley Goggles is a brand that is seen a lot on the slopes and also at Vancouver 2010. Oakley have a history of eyewear innovation for sports and their research, technology and design prowess is second to none. Professional athletes recognise the quality and the power of the Oakley brand and for this reason they entrust the protection of their eyes to them.
For snowboarders goggles are an essential piece of kit and Oakley goggles provide comfort, clarity of vision, anti-fog lenses and are designed to fit snugly when worn with a helmet. Wearing Oakley goggles can prevent arctic burn and will protect your vision from the brilliance of the snow.
Some people prefer Oakley Sunglasses for winter sports and speed skaters in particular, always wear a pair of wraparound sunglasses when competing. There are a number of Oakley styles that cater specifically for sportsmen and when choosing your Oakley’s your decision will be informed by what you require from your sunglasses. For instance you may need transition lenses, the ability to change lenses, a larger frame, or a particularly light frame. Whatever your requirements Oakley will have it covered.
Rather than follow the countries medal tallies this Olympics why not count how many athletes wearing Oakley’s mount the podium. We bet Oakley is the overall winner at Vancouver 2010!
