Description of Oakley Jawbone Polarized Sunglasses - Silver Clear Black Iridium Photo VentOakleys legacy of sports performance innovation continues with the new JAWBONE. The latest evolution of a coveted design, this frame is like nothing ever seen in the world of sports. Every aspect is engineered around the clarity and protection of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS HDO.With Oakleys new SWITCHLOCK Technology, the lower part of the frame rim opens to allow easy access for quick lens changing, letting you optimize performance in any light condition. The revolutionary design holds the lenses with a suspension system so stresses on the frame wont affect the optics.

The new architecture ensures theres nothing to diminish the unbeatable clarity of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS HDO, and you still get the optimized comfort and fit of a flexible frame design.Pivot the nose piece to unlock the lower jaw and open it for easy lens changing. Theres minimal handling involved, so dirty fingers dont get all over the lens. The quick-release system closes with a cam that locks each lens securely in place.Oakley engineered the pivoting system with a release mechanism that lets you remove and replace the nose piece with a different size to customize the fit. A comfortably secure fit is essential for athletic competition, so Oakley started this new design with the companys legendary Three-Point Fit. Instead of hooking the ears like conventional frames, a Three-Point Fit ensures the frame touches the wearer only at the bridge of the nose and the sides of the head. Oakley combined the proprietary fit with specialized bridge geometry and strategically placed flex zones to give the frame a broad range of flexibility while directing stresses away from the lenses. That way, the optics can do their job without the distortion of subtle bending and bowing.FeaturesOakley SWITCHLOCK Technology for an interchangeable lens design that helps you keep up with changing light conditions and maximize performance in any environment. UNOBTAINIUM stem sleeves for a secure fit that increases grip with perspiration. Durable yet comfortably lightweight O MATTER frame material that optimizes protection while maintaining a flexible fit. Interchangeable nose piece for a customizable fit.

Convenience and clarity of Oakley HYDROPHOBIC a permanent lens coating that repels dust while maintaining a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils, fingerprints, lotions and sunscreens and even repels water to prevent streaks and sheens from corrupting your vision.

One of the latest engineering innovations from Oakley: the Jawbone polarized sunglasses feature interchangeable lenses with unbeatable clarity in any light condition. Polarized lenses reduce 99% of visible glare from water, snow, sand and pavement for increased visual acuity and decreased eye strain. Designed for easy lens swapping, SWITCHLOCK(TM) lens removal system relieves distortion-causing frame pressure by allowing the bottom part of the frame to pivot open. Quick-release removal system minimizes lens handling, so dirty fingers needn't touch lenses; cam lock frame closure securely holds lenses in place. Lightweight, flexible nylon frames resist damanging stresses. Optically correct, shatterproof and scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses are made for lasting use. Oakley hydrophobic permanent lens coating prevents sweat and rain from building up, and repels skin oils, keeping your vision clear. Unique 3-point Oakley fit includes optical alignment for sharp accurate vision, impact absorption for improved safety and geometry that extends the peripheral view. Black frames with red Iridium bronze rose tinted lenses are ideal for medium to bright light; includes additional set of persimmon (orange) lenses for low light. Reflective Iridium coating enhances optical clarity and contrast, and reduces glare in varying light conditions. Nose pads and stem sleeves are made from hydrophilic rubber that becomes tackier as you perspire, holding eyewear in place as you move. 2 sizes of interchangeable nosepieces are included to give you the best fit and performance. To preserve the superior optical quality, sunglasses come with a specially woven, electrostatic Microclear bag for cleaning and storage.


Whether you're on guard detail out in some Middle Eastern version of Tatooine, or training for your next tri, the Oakley Polarized Jawbone Sunglasses give you Oakley-certified performance complete with SWITCHLOCK, Oakley's interchangeable lens system. O MATTER frames keep the Jawbone Sunglasses light and flexible and an Oakley HYDROPHOBIC lens coating repels dust, water, and finger smudges to prevent any corruption of your vision.
