Building on, er, rather, subtracting from their EV Radar and Jawbreaker sunglasses introduced last year, the new Oakely EVZero Path (above) and Range sunglasses lose the brow bridge to shed grams and expand the line of sight. Both claim to be 15% lighter than competing models, and both get a range of lenses with their Prizm coating to enhance depth perception.
Peer past the break for pricing and details…
The lenses on both use a toric (varying curvature) shape to minimize distortion at any viewing angle, particularly important when your head’s down but your eyes are forward through the top of the lens. The $170 Path gets a shape similar to the framed Path but with a bit more view. Claimed weight is just 22g.
The larger EVZero Range increases the lens size to provide more coverage, making it more cycling specific. It retails for $180 and weighs in at a claimed 24g.
Both are available now.
