The Oakley brand is the master of manufacturing the best of the best when it comes to sunglasses that boast style and function. Offering a dynamic array of lenses and frames to suit different sports, and high-tech functions such as MP3 players and blue tooth facilities, you really can’t get much better than a pair Oakley sunglasses.
The brand has also really come to the forefront in designing sunglasses that are ultra fashionable and stylish. Perfect for when you want a high-fashion look with the superior Oakley technology, one new style that is very much on our radar are the new Oakley Beckon sunglasses.
Designed specifically for women, the Oakley Beckon sunglasses feature an oversized frame made of the patented O Matter Oakley material, which resists impact whilst providing a lightweight and comfortable finish for all-day wear. In typical Oakley style, vision is maximised with the incorporation of a 6 base lens curvature held in place with the unique Oakley Three-Point Fit to achieve the best possible optical alignment.
The ultra sleek Oakley logo is displayed upon the hinge and some of the lenses within the Beckon collection also feature Oakley’s famous Polarised technology, which effectively minimises glare and improves visual clarity.
If you like to add a splash of colour to your look, then the Oakley Beckon sunglasses will definitely appeal as are available in chic and statement colours including Grape Juice, Vino, Crystal Turquoise, Brown Sugar, Polished White and Polished Black if you prefer a more classic and neutral finish.
At either £60 or £90 (for Polarised lenses), the Beckon Oakley sunglasses are incredibly good value and make for a worthy investment. The shape is super stylish and timelessly classic, and the incorporation of the unique Oakley materials and technologies mean that the Beckon sunglasses are so much more than just a great looking pair of shades.

Dragon is a highly innovative brand and produces cutting edge products including ski and snowboard goggles which are becoming very popular with ski and snowboard athletes and enthusiasts. The other products by sports brand Dragon include sunglasses, MX goggles and accessories and the label is the ultimate in high quality and funky style.
Dragon has become very much associated with high profile extreme sporting events and the products within the range are incredibly bold and stylish with the goggles typically featuring a patterned finish and incorporating bold colours.
The Dragon Rogue goggles are a particular favourite within the range. When skiing and snowboarding, this usually means a full day with your goggles on and therefore comfort and stretch ability is vital. The Rogue goggles feature a triple layer foam skirt and a comfortable micro fleece lining. The strap is mounted on the hinged outer edge of the frame, so the goggles still sit comfortably on your face while wearing a helmet.
The Dragon DXS goggles are designed for women and are therefore slightly smaller in size. Offering full UV protection, anti-fog lenses, micro fleece lining and replaceable straps to list only a few of the innovative functions, these goggles look incredibly striking and offer funky colour combinations such as pink and white and patterns including gingham and spots. Of course, not all girls want something typically girly and there are also a selection of goggles which feature edgier patterns and colours.
Dragon’s Toric lens technology which is incorporated in many of the brand’s goggles is unique to the Dragon brand having being developed and implemented by Dragon specialists. This works by the lens surface being designed in a combination of both a sphere and a cylinder and ultimately then achieves exceptional visual clarity. Dragon has also recently enforced a Super Anti-Fog technology into a selection of its goggles including the Mace Dragon goggles. This comprises of the same chemical compounds used by NASA scientists for spacecraft windshields and helmet visors and is therefore incredibly effective and is designed to maximise visual clarity. The Mace unisex goggles are also super stylish with vibrant colours and sleek lenses. The use of Polarised lenses also allows the wearer to maintain clearer and more precise vision.
The Skull Candy goggles are an example of an extremely innovative design and also incorporate removable headphones so that you can listen to music whilst up on the slopes! Again, these goggles are visually striking with unique Co-op graphic prints.
Dragon goggles are the perfect combination of high style and effective function. When skiing or snowboarding, protecting your eyes and face and sustaining a high level of visual clarity is as important for safety as it is for enhanced performance. These goggles offer the maximum in high tech features and also place emphasis on designing styles which ensure you look great. With a range for men, women and unisex, each pair of Dragon goggles are designed to ensure high comfort and a great fit which of course, also contributes to experiencing the full snow sport experience to the max.
