How can you improve on an almost perfect pair of sports specific sunglasses? This is a question Oakley must have been thinking long and hard about as they have managed the almost impossible and updated the Oakley Radarlock Sunglasses to make them that little bit better! The new Oakley Radarlock XL Sunglasses and Oakley Radarlock XL Straight Sunglasses have been designed specifically for use by cyclists and we think that you will be seeing a lot of them in and around cycling events next year. New innovations are combined with original Oakley technology to create an almost unsurpassable set of sunglasses. In this blog we will be focusing on what makes them so different to the original Oakley Radarlock Sunglasses and more importantly how they go above and beyond the call of sports sunglass duty.
Say what you see. The new Oakley Radarlock XL Sunglasses are just that…XL. Oakley have added a larger lens to the Radarlocks to aid the classic cycling stance of being hunched right over your handlebars. It is a common problem for cyclists that adopt this aerodynamic approach as sunlight has been known to creep in above the lens and distort your vision, which can be a very real issue for competitive sports men and women. Whilst travelling at upwards of 20mph, being blinded for a matter of seconds can have catastrophic consequences and it is no surprise that Oakley have heeded the calls of cyclists the world over. The new taller lens completely covers the top of your eyes, stopping any sunlight from weaning it’s way in. Of course, they still come with all of Oakley’s technology as standard including the game changing switchlock innovation which has seen the Oakley Radarlocks take off to sunglass stardom.
I’m sure a lot of you will have been following the Tour de France this year as British cyclist Bradley Wiggins stormed to victory, with Chris Froome putting in a valiant effort for second place! To these amazing athletes comfortable eyewear is essential for a good race and with the Tour covering a massive 3,497 kilometres, the Oakley Radarlock Sunglasses were the natural choice. But now, Oakley have taken comfort to a new level introducing the Oakley Radarlock XL Straight Sunglasses. The new straight arms fit snugly underneath an aero helmet and will not cause any unwanted discomfort and they also boast the XL lens for perfect coverage making them the obvious choice for any competitive cyclist. As with all Oakley sports sunglasses, they come with unobtanium earsocks; Oakley’s patented rubber which grips to your head when wet and will not pull on your hair, along with the unrivaled clarity and protection of High Definition Optics® (HDO®) for taking performance beyond the limits of reason.
If you cycle to cycle to any sort of standard you will find the new Oakley Radarlock XL Sunglasses and Oakley Radarlock XL Straight Sunglasses to be an absolute revolution in comfort, style and more importantly practicality. Both styles are due for release in October and are available to pre-order right here at Shade Station today!
