When Oakley created their premier Oil Rig®, they put an embargo on conventional thinking and made fossil fuel out of ordinary designs. This latest edition comes with redesigned stem architecture that puts the icon of innovation in the crosshairs of dimensional grooves. Art meets attitude in a sunglass that carries a single continuous lens across contours of lightweight O Matter® frame material. Unique geometries curve the frame so even medium-size faces get a precise fit that doesn’t stick out at the sides. The sculpturally integrated hinges are engineered with dual cam action, and the linear ear stems provide a comfortably secure grip. High Definition Optics® (HDO®) takes advantage of Polaric Ellipsoid lens geometry to maintain clarity while curving the lenses for optimal side protection and extended peripheral view. Plutonite® lens material filters out every ray of UV, and both impact protection and optical precision meet ANSI Z87.1 standards. Iridium® lens coatings (select models) balance light transmission and reduce glare. Oakley HDPolarized® lenses (select models) remove 99% of eye-straining glare without the haze and optical distortion found with ordinary polarized lenses.

LENS:

  • Optimized peripheral view and side coverage of Polaric Ellipsoid lens geometry
  • Optical precision and impact resistance meet or exceed ANZI Z87.1 optical and basic impact standards

FRAME:

  • Durability and all-day comfort of lightweight, stress-resistant O Matter® frame material
  • Comfortable fit on medium to large faces via extended wrapped frame geometry
  • Precision and durability of sculpturally integrated hinge mechanisms with dual action cam
