This flashback flows with fluid contours that put a fresh spin on a classic teardrop shape. Sculptural detailing lays down distinction in a durable frame of lightweight C-5™ alloy, and Crosshair® carries Unobtainium® components to keep a grip on comfort. This is how yesteryear hits the forefront of style, and the vintage flavor is seasoned with premium optical technologies.
Metal frames with teardrop lenses are time-honored designs. When Oakley created Crosshair, they respected the classics but added more than a few modern innovations in performance, comfort and protection. They started off with C-5, an alloy of five metal compounds that team up to optimize durability while minimizing weight. Then they let their artists cut loose. The result is contemporary detailing that sets this frame apart while paying homage to iconic style.
A raked-back contour of 8.75 base lens curvature opens your peripheral view. With the patented innovations of High Definition Optics® (HDO®), that view is razor sharp—all the way across the lens contour. Iridium® lens coatings balance light transmission.
All lenses are made of pure Plutonite® to filter out every harmful ray the skies throw down, including UVA, UVB and UVC.
