Oakley has today launched a special edition Green Fade eyewear collection, combining a colour from its first performance product with its modern Prizm lens technology.
All frames in the collection, which will be worn by the likes of Mark Cavendish, are hand painted in the vibrant green Oakley first used in 1980.
The full Green Fade Collection is available with Oakley Prizm lenses, a technology that’s designed to enhance detail in specific environments.
The collection includes EVZero, Jawbreaker, Radar EV Path, Flak 2.0 XL and RadarLock Path performance glasses along with and lifestyle (non-sports) products including Frogskins and Crosslink Zero RX.
The EVZero, Radar EV Path, Flak 2.0 XL, RadarLock Path are all available in an Asian fit.
The Green Fade glasses start at £160.
The Radar EV Path Prizm Road (above), for example, costs £175 in the Green Fade Edition (compared to £155 for a standard version).
