Frame: Polished Aluminum
Lens: Black Irridium
I had the lens swapped when I bought these at my OPD. I gotta say I bought these because I was "jonesing" for a new pair of O that day and these were the only style they had that I didn't already. I was never a fan of the M frame. To me they were a frame that "everyone" seemed to have - much like the minutes and HJ's.
Wow - man did these frames change my mind. I am in love. The chrome frame around the black lense is visually stunning - both on and off. The peripheral vision on these things ae amazing - especially for guys like me with a big head. They are light, and the Hydrophobic lens is simply king! With around a 100 in my collection these went from a style I was never fond of to a pair I wear non - stop. Can't go wrong with these. O has done it again!
Frame: Matt Black
I decided on these Oakleys because I have read about the new lens tech that they have. I used to wear XX with ruby iridiums until those had gotten scratched, I replaced them with Half Jackets with the same color lenses. Those were lost due to an open zipper in my jacket while I was riding. The thing is that the previous pair would fog and my eye lashes would make the fogging worse. I would wipe them with the microfiber, but it would only spread the contamination, blurring the lenses. It was a different story with the Radar, moisture does not affect it and if I wipe off the stuff it gets from my eye lashes it does not blurr the lens. Blurring were one of my biggest gripes with the previous pair of Oakleys that I had. Lens removal and reinstallation is also easier with the Radar compared to the Half Jackets, where the snap, crackle and pop of the plastic would prevent me from trying to remove the lenses for replacement. The only time it fogs was when it sits too clos to my eye brows where the heat from that area would fog the area close to the frame, other than that, visibility is excellent. Peripheral vision is so good that I can wear them inside my motorbike helmet.
Lens: ice iridium
Im on my second pair of radars an both pairs i have had ice iridium lenses which i think you cant beat because they dont mess with colors like fire iridium or even polarized tend to do. I had my first pair for close to 3 and a half years, they only have 1 scratch and theyve been hit with a football at least 3 times. stems do get a little scratched up from them sitting on a table or flat surface
Lens: Black Iridium/G40
This is by far the best pair of sunglasses I have ever tried. I got the bike array beacuse I wanted a pair of sunglasses to have when I was riding my bike. The frame is realy ligth and the frame fits almost every type of face. The lenses provide great coverage and the hydrophobic treatment makes this glasses perfect for use in wet conditions. Of the pair I own this is the one thats used most. This is also the pair I juse when I show Oakley to my friends and family, everyone that have tried them on wants a pair. For me the Radar is Oakley at it's best!
Frame: Retina Burn
I love these! I use them for cycling and the fire lens is perfect for all but the dullest days, they look a lot less "sport geek" than M-Frames. However, they don't have the great coverage of M-Frames with heater lenses, which is a shame.
Overall, they are still, in my opinion, the second best sports sunglasses, far better than cheap ones, and better than my Specialized ones.
