Oakley Men's Half X Iridium Sunglasses
Oakley has been perfecting open-edge lens architecture for years, giving athletes like runners and cyclists a full field of vision with no frame rim to block downward view. In a completely separate lab, metallurgists were toying with 425,000 watts of plasma lightning to shape X Metal, an ultra-lightweight titanium alloy. Somehow the performance fanatics and the metal heads got together and spawned a design that mixes art and science so completely, you can’t tell where one ends and the other begins. Here’s where it goes over the top: The lenses are optimized with Hydrophobic coating, a permanent shield against water sheens and a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils and lotions. That means the unbeatable clarity of High Definition Optics (HDO®) stays razor sharp and clear, and with lens contours that maximize peripheral view, it’s a performance advantage that borders on unfair. You also get the industrial-level impact resistance and 100% UV filtering of pure Plutonite lenses, plus optional Iridium lens coatings that reduce glare and balance light transmission. The Three-Point Fit takes advantage of supple Unobtainium components, specially formulated to increase grip with sweat. Custom-engineered spring hinges add even more comfort.
