The Oakley Jupiter Carbon Sunglasses are one of the newest releases to come out of Oakley Sunglasses HQ and they may look a little familiar…but don’t let that fool you! Those of you who remember the Oakley Jupiter Factory Lite Sunglasses will be able to draw this comparison, however they are very different indeed; from the material that they are made of, right through to subtleties in design. First of all, lets discuss the similarities; they both have an almost identical shape and profile on your face, patented Plutonite lenses which are 100% UVA, UVB and UVC protective and both of their lenses feature Oakley’s HD and XYZ Optics which completely cut out refraction of light and therefore the optical clarity is second to none! Oakley have over 600 patents to protect this technology so you can be sure that you won’t find this kind of innovation elsewhere.
As with the Oakley Jupiter Factory Lite Sunglasses, the Oakley Jupiter Carbon Sunglasses feature lightweight carbon fibre arms which are attached with mono-shock hinges for a truly comfortable wear and the ‘three-point fit’ technology ensures that they will fit the vast majority of head sizes and shapes. Where the two frames differ is the actual frame itself; where the Factory Lites had a precision engineered aluminium centre frame, the Oakley Jupiter Carbon Sunglasses have an O Matter centre frame. O Matter is Oakley’s patented polycarbonate compound which is incredibly flexible and durable and is impact resistant to the same level as industrial strength eyewear!
Although these amazing frames are not going to be available until the summer, you can register your interest on our site and we will let you know when they arrive. Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates and news…

With the turn of the year, Oakley Sunglasses have released a whole plethora of new models to fit into their ‘Lifestyle’ range and undoubtedly one of the stand out pairs has to be the Oakley Offshoot Sunglasses. Based heavily around the Oakley Big Taco Sunglasses (one of the biggest Oakley releases of 2012), the Oakley Offshoots add a whole new dimension to what is surely going to be a future classic.

Unlike it’s predecessor, the Big Taco, the Oakley Offshoot Sunglasses have a shield lens which extends to almost the full width of the frame providing the user with a wide field of sight and fantastic clarity of vision. The clarity of the lens is down to the Plutonite polycarbonate compound which Oakley make their lenses from and the uncompromisingly exact standards to which they manufacture these lenses.
