Thanks for the research. Every so often, the site has some anomalies

Odd... Mainlink is now called Mainlink XL on oakley.com. Still has the same SKU (OO9264).

https://www.oakley.com/en-us/product/W0OO9264XL?variant=888392428332

No word on an XL release of the Mainlink to my knowledge!? Will report back if I get a confirm on this, v interesting.....

--EDIT
Google Search seems to have crawled the AU site while Mainlink XL was the page title, however title reverted to Mainlink now... I would lean towards a web-dev error on this personally...

--EDIT 2

Seems to be recurring in different parts of page, I would say its being worked on as we speak - JordOZ


I think that the website is just having problems showing that there’s two different styles. The Mainlink hasn’t been replaced (yet as we know of) it’s just like the Holbrook and sliver xl. Just a bigger one. But side by side there a good difference. Once I get to my store today I will post a side by side

OCP fee is now $25 instead of $20, and regular eyewear went up $3.

Basically they are meant to be the new Sliver. Good price point, fit a wide range of faces. They are super comfy on the face, over all a good daily wear.

I'll give it a try. That Square O would've been a nice fit

Curved earstems = no go for me (except for the Frogs).

Sort of the same thought. I'm fine with traditional daily wearers, as they're certainly needed in the lineup, but the three point fit is one of Oakley's trademarks.

I just don't like the not straight ear stems. That's not Oakley to me. I'll be a hypocrite if I buy the new Clifden but that pair has some cool features/accessories that help me overlook the not straight ear stems.

Clifden does look cool for the oddball aspect, but I didn't end up having much interest in that fishing pair that I can't remember the name of.

HA! I hear ya Dann. Yeah, I'm more into Clifden (any release date yet besides an approximate timeframe?) because of the accessories. Like the Crossrange shields. I like being able to "transform" the product. That's one reason I loved the AP AFA. Not that I ever was able to buy as much of it as I would've liked.

I completely agree that Oakleys should have straight stem. It's one of the identifiable hallmarks of the brand. That said, I tend to gravitate towards the typical hook arms these days because I like the lack of pressure on the side of the head (I must be getting old).

Clifden is probably the only interesting one out of the upcoming Fall releases. I'm on the fence about that one, but I will likely end up with one someday.

Exactly! Straight earstems and 3-point fit are the reasons that Oakleys actually fit my head.

This will be the new temple design on a lot of lifestyle and some active styles. Started with Split Shot. Still a Three point fit but with better ball cap compatibility. "It won't fit with my hat on." is a common customer complaint.

You're only as old as your Oakleys make you feel. LOL

I do think Clifden is going to be a nice novelty. Kinda excited to check it out. Minus the not straight earstems.

I definitely understand the ball cap compatibility. I always debate whether to have the earstems on the outside going over the cap, having the ends of the earstems underneath the cap or just having the earstems resting below the cap line. A few MLB players seem to put the stems on the outside over the cap.

Nonetheless I still think if they curve the earstems of more models that's taking away from the brand. 3 point fit or not. I just don't like it.
