Continuing the battle of the fastest lens change, Oakley has a new option of their own in the Flak Draft. The latest incarnation of the Flak Jacket, the new multi-sport sunglass aims to provide quicker lens changes while still offering a high degree of ventilation from the semi-rimless design. On top of that, the frame is available with Prizm lenses for road, trail, or even golf or shallow water, deep water, and daily polarized…
The secret to the Flak Draft lies in the little release trigger just behind each lens. Pressing the button allows the lens to pop out for a quick and easy swap. The rest of the O Matter frame is classic Oakley with Unobtainium earsocks and nosepads, and Plutonite lenses which protect from all UVA, UVB, UVC, and “harmful blue light.” Pricing starts at $160 for the standard Flak Draft, $190 for the Prizm series, and $220 for the Prizm Polarized.
Over on the EV Zero side, Oakley has added two new lens shapes – the Stride (top) and Pitch (bottom two). Built to be their lightest performance eyewear, the lenses use new shapes for their toric rimless design in standard ($160), Prizm ($170), and Prizm Polarized ($200) lenses.
Oakley launched the Crossrange and Crossrange XL earlier this year, but this was the first time checking it out in person. The idea is a modular sunglass that transforms from casual to performance with swappable temples and nose pads. Sold with two sets of temples and nose pads, and standard or XL lens shapes, the Crossrange starts at $150 for the standard HDO lenses, or $180 for the Prizm series.
