    Optical enlightenment.

    Oakley pioneered single-lens sports eyewear way back when in 1983, but they haven't released a markedly new cycling-focused design since 1990. Yes, the M-Frames were futuristic back then, but the style has been kind of ho-hum for years. It's still iconic, but is now conservative, when Oakley made its name being cutting-edge.

    Like the M-Frame, the Radar a single-lens sunglass that is light, fits well, and has interchangeable lenses with great optics. But it does the old M's one up by employing a new hydrophobic coating on the lens. This coating makes it easier to see what's up the road when water hits the lens, as it just beads up and rolls off; the coating also makes it easier for dirt to come off, and harder for smudges to be seen because it's also oleophobic. The coating is transparent and permanent.

    Another improvement over the old M is the nosepiece system. It's better in two ways. In terms of fit, Radars come with two nosepieces. One will fit better than the other; the come in different widths. This means it will sit properly on the schnoz, and neither pinch it nor sit so loose as to slide down. The second, more functional, improvement is that the nosepiece attaches to the rest of the frame. Oakley found that to meet military safety standards, the venerated M needed some decidedly garage tinkering. The new nosepiece attachment improves impact protection; it meets ANSI Z87.1 standard for both high mass and high-velocity impact resistance.

    And then there are the surge ports. These are the holes molded into the arms. The ports direct air inside the arms so heat and sweat don't build up behind the sunglasses and arms. And unlike certain models of the M-Frame, the arms of the Radar fold. The lens is large in a modern, high-fashion way without being too big. We prefer the Path lens because we believe it is large enough to protect the eyes while being small enough so it doesn't overheat the head and seal the eyes off from the world. Overly big glasses fog up too easily. For those who are familiar with M-Frame lenses, this is kind of between the Hybrid and the Sweep. The next larger size of Radar lenses is the Pitch, and the largest is the Range. As with the M-Frame, the Radar has interchangeable lenses. Not only can you change tints, but shapes.

    The White Chrome frame features a metal coating to the O-Matter frame made when the naked O-Matter is put in a vacuum with a metal chip. There is soft Unobtanium rubber on the ends of the temples and the nosepiece, same as the M-Frames. It's slightly hydrophilic, and grips better with perspiration. The lens is made from Plutonite (which blocks UVA, UVB, UVC, and blue light) has Oakley's famed High Definition Optics (HDO) for clarity and XYZ Optics for elimination of distortion. The lens color is Blue Iridium, which allows in 15% of visible light. It's best for medium to bright light and has excellent contrast. The Iridium helps cut down on glare. The sunglass comes with a microfiber bag that is both a lens cleaning cloth and soft storage.

    Great repalcemenets

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Got this pair to replace exact same sun glasses that my young son tore apart. Minus one star for not including a case. My previous pair came with a clam shell hard case. These only come with the microfiber pouch

    Cycling frame w/ lens too dark for bike

      The Radar frame is the successor to the M Frame that Lance Armstrong wore; in other words, this is a cycling specific frame. It’s wide enough to fit over helmet straps and tall enough to give you visibility in the drops. But, it’s available in lens colors and designs that are poor choices for cycling. I got the Ice Iridium on sale, and, even on a sunny day, they a low contrast lenses that make it harder to see potholes and tree roots. Additionally, the Radar frame feels a bit dated now that the EV Zero is available. The Zero is lighter, offers better visibility, more flexibility, and tighter fit. I really enjoyed the photo-chromatic iridium Radar lenses I bought back in 2012, but, in my opinion, the frame hasn’t aged particularly well. Perhaps Oakley is trying to get a little extra mileage out of an aging product by offering it in more lens sizes and varieties, but, honestly, only the original vented lens in a high-contrast light color (like a rose tint base with at least 20% light transmission) makes sense for road use. And you need an ever lighter lens (at least 30% light transmission) for mountain bike and cloudy day road use. Plus, the Zero is just a better frame. 3/5.

      Ultimate Necessity for Multisport Freaks

      • Fit: True to size

      Great pair of eye-wear that can be worn almost everyday with a wide variety of sports that range from rock climbing, cycling, running...
      I simply love this brand the wide range that it offers with innovative designs!!! Once you get used to frame and to the brand, i am sure that you never think again to switch to another!

      Form, Fit, Function

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Anytime Oakley is in the conversation, price always comes up, for understandable reasons. Personally, the other more price-conscious options out there just don't do it for me, mainly for the optics. They will give me headaches. When I'm out doing what I love I want to focus as much as I can on everything around me, not my sunglasses affecting my vision. Needless to say, these shades stand up to Oakley's consistent quality and give you the option of many different lenses to give you the best vision for whatever you are doing. The fit has been great, even with many different cycling helmets, and they stay put even when doing mind-numbing descents on my mountain bike. I love that an additional lens is included with the Radar locks, but don't really use the semi-hard case. The only issue I've found with these is that it can be tough to get the lock option to unlock to change lenses, however it is definitely not a deal breaker.

      Once You Go Oakley...

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've tried a wide variety of sunglasses on the market, for climbing, sport shooting, and road cycling, and the Oakley Radars are still my favorites. I tend to prefer the Pitch lens over the Path, but the Path lenses are still pretty good. The frames are the same, but the lenses cover different amounts of your face.



      The Good:

      --Excellent wrap-around coverage and wind blocking, important when screaming down a descent while wearing contacts.

      --Every color of lens you could ever want in three different profiles, plus vents, polarized, etc, should you need them.

      --Vented lenses available; handy given the degree of wrap-around.

      --Complete UV blockage, even with clear lenses. I once got a wicked sunglass tan wearing clears all day when it was overcast out.

      --Oh-so-comfy for all day wear.



      The Bad:

      --Expensive, and they never seem to go on sale.



      I used to scoff at people who paid Oakley money for sunglasses, until I bought my first set of Oakleys. My only regrets are the pairs I've lost over the years, so try not to do that!

      Maybe a Better View

      Trying to capture the awesome lens color, and sharp frame of these shades.



      For all you 'purple fiends', you'll love the 'Violet Iridium' lens.

      For the Mean Greens...the Jade Iridium is awesome, too. They're a bit lighter than the Violet, so can be worn on cloudier days (obviously the photochromes' are the best totally cloudy days).



      Maybe a Better View

      Most Awesome Shades!

      My Custom "2013" Radars:

      Carbon-look frame

      Lens 1) Violet Iridium

      Lens 2) Jade Iridium

      Purple Icons.

      Totally light weight, lighter than my Split Jackets.

      Will be getting the Rad. Lock with maybe a bit larger lens for more coverage. Thinking of the vented Photochromatic lenses for early/late/night rides.

      Also love the Red Iridium lens...it's a total addiction...but o-so-fun!

      Most Awesome Shades!

      Love them

        These glasses are awesome. Crystal Black w/ Black Iridium was my choice. They'll stay on your face no matter what. Even after long runs in the hot and humid NC weather. This is my second pair.

          Hello. I hear these glasses are good for sports and biking. I'm looking for a pair of sunglasses for everyday normal use not just sports like walking and driving etc. Are these the right pair? im not very atheletic

          For driving, just be careful of which lens type you pick; as some may make differentiating traffic light color, for example, sometimes tricky (this is listed on the paper that comes with glasses, and on the Oakley site.; (even though we know what sequence they are!). In fact, in some countries, some lens type are prohibited for use when driving (I believe the black iridium is one such lens). Just double check on the Oakley site for more info. on this. Also, there are warnings (if applicable) on the paper that comes with your glasses.

          Probably not a big deal....but just a F.Y.I.

          After buying cheapo sports shades for...

          After buying cheapo sports shades for decades, finally ready to pull the trigger on Oakleys, based on reviews (and my desire to actually see detail). I'm trying to decide between black iridium and gray lenses (non-polarized). I like the crystal black frames but am afraid that the black irid shades will be too dark in slightly overcast days. Advice?

          Best Answer

          Worried about overcast or changing light? My advice is spring for the polarized. It is definitely worth it. That said, I prefer grey as they are for medium to bright light, where the black iridium is for very bright conditions and reducing glare.

          I agree, choose the gray over the black iridium (I have the Blk.Iri. polorized also, and they are dark!). I would recommend considering the transistions lens, these are specifically designed for 'changing light conditions', and would be a great choice to have on hand to switch-out for semi cloudy days/evenings/early mornings.

          I have the Radar Path and they fit too tight. After a few hours of wearing them, they start hurting the sides of my head. Is there a way to adjust them or make them just a bit wider?

          You could try going to an optical glasses store and have them safely fit them for you...not sure if they will if they weren't purchased through them (some of these places are authorized Oakley dealers, too). It's worth a call/try.

          i have a pair of oakley radar glasses and i wore them in baseball and stuff, but 1 day i was putting them on my head 2 go out in the field and the frame snapped in half!!! where can i get a new frame?

          You could call oakley, and see if they would sell you just the frame. If not, try ebay, or maybe some sunglass shops, or sporting good stores that might possiby be able to sell you just the frames. this is the number for oakley: (800) 431-1439

          does anyone know if oakley radar paths are...

          does anyone know if oakley radar paths are good for baseball?????? or whether or not the grey lenses are as good as the black iridium????

          Best Answer

          Yes, they're fantastic. The other guy just can't ball sorry dude. If you are used to playing with a pair of sunglasses on these things are top notch I play backyard games all the time in the summer and can play short just fine with these. I golf and mountain bike all the time and couldn't imagine doing it without these. I bought the Lance Armstrong Ones and the black Iridium is great for you because it reduces glare. To the other guy, oakley will send you a new pair asap their customer service is great.

          Good point, Charlie!!! L.O.L.!!!

          These are perfect for any out-door activity! Maybe suggest trying the polarized lens.

          Black Iridium is of course darker than the grey.

          Depends on the weather the particular day you need them...consider two different lens to switch-out, ie. cloudy days (transistion lens), or very bright days (blk. Iridium polarized lens).

          Hope this still helps for your future purchase!

          I just got a pair of these from you guys....

          I just got a pair of these from you guys. I have a medium head, and a narrow face. They glasses hold on my head fine, but they see to be a little too wide. I can squeeze them a little and they look fine.Two questions: Are there any M frames that are just a tad smaller OR can I mold them (squeeze them together) so they fit my head a little better?Its one or the other, will probably have to send them back.Thanks

          Also, to, if you still feel you need them (or any glasses adjusted), by all means seek out a optical eyewear place that is an "Authorized" Oakley dealer, they will be able to help with this and not damage or break your frames.

          Do these glasses come with the black case...

          Do these glasses come with the black case pictured in the description? I am talking about the black balistic case, not the microfiber baggie. Anyone know?

          hi there, I have a big head - no gettting...

          hi there, I have a big head - no gettting away from it I suppose, I have used Oakleys all my sunglasss wearing life and would not trust my eyes to anything else!

          I currently own juliets which fit me great - scars which are a little tight but not too bad - square wires which fit ok but are too small lens wise for me - and mag pro m frames which are just simply awesome!

          I have just bought some monster dog transitions but they dont fit me! they barely go over my temples and are tight on my head - so I am reluctantly selling them on.

          my head is 60cm or 23 3/4" around and my ears are roughly 30cm apart.

          anyone know of any Oakleys that will fit my head nicely?

          cheerrs guys in anticipation of your help!

          matt - taylor312@btinternet.com if you can offer any help
