Oakley was founded in 1975 by James Jannard in California. The then 25-year-old dropped out of his studies to sell motorcycle grips at motocross events he had developed himself. Later he also made BMX grips. They were characterized by superior grip in wet conditions, due to the Unobtanium material he produced, which is still used today in the manufacture of Oakley eyewear frames. Five years later, Jannard launched his first goggle, the O-Frame.
In 1985 he decided to sponsor the American cyclist Greg LeMond, who won the Tour de France in 1986, 1989 and 1990. This marked the beginning of a new era in Oakley's history, with more and more surfers, skiers, cyclists, and triathletes wanting sports eyewear of exceptional design. But Oakley has not only become a cult brand among athletes. Action movie heroes like Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt or Wesley Snipes also wore the glasses in movies like Mission: Impossible, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Blade.
Oakley is globally successful, not least because of its passion for quality, and above all because of its unbeatable fusion of function and futuristic design. The Oakley Hall of Fame includes glasses like the Holbrook, Frogskin, Radar or the M-Frame - the world's most popular sports glasses. Oakley is a brand with a high identification value; the majority of customers, men and women, maintain an active sporty lifestyle - no mountain is too high for them and no bike route too far. Such activities often require measures against extreme conditions, such as glistening sunlight. That's why sports glasses have to be able to do more than normal sunglasses.
Oakley lenses feature High Definition Optics® (HDO®) for even more precise and sharp vision, meeting the uncompromising demands of top athletes like Mark Cavendish, Jan Frodeno, Nino Schurter, Valentino Rossi and Fernando Alonso.
Oakley goggles are also the first choice for the military, police and special forces. Oakley HD Polarized Lenses Protect your eyes from glare. Polarized lenses from other manufacturers often consist of several layers of bonded film, while Oakley makes them from a single layer of glass. This prevents distorted vision.
Of course, Oakley glasses come in a variety of high-performance lens tints for a variety of uses that help you see more detail, more depth, in a better resolution.
All Oakley lenses offer reliable UV protection. Oakley Plutonite® glass material stops all ultraviolet radiation, not just the low UVA spectrum. Since even clouds cannot prevent UV radiation from reaching the retina, even the clear lenses filter out 100% of UV radiation.
