Does it say Asian fit or does it have the new branding on the materials?

So they quietly replaced the former Asian Fit naming it seems.

One small question, does the Kato and the encoder share the same "curvature". I mean, I tried once the kato and it was too wide for my face/head ad I am wondering if the encoder would fit the same.

- cmunozh

Sport RX lists them at:
Kato- 149mm width.
Encoder- 136mm.

Just spent over an hour with customer service. We all all being issued refunds. If you have an email saying completed and tracking number with just a dot there. They claim not to have pairs for any of us - OakleyGarth


I'm wondering if their supply chain software can't keep up with the bots that have become prevalent since the "pandemic." Makes you wonder if that's resulting in all these oversells from the last couple releases. - Patient_Cero

They could probably defeat most of the bots fairly easily with a Captcha - DBNInc

One would hope, but the GPU shortages that plagued the PC community are a prime example that it doesn't slow them down hardly at all. Best Buy, New Egg and tons of others got rocked despite putting captcha, email links, etc in order to complete orders.

It's like they drawing inspiration from the Zero 0.3p with the holes at the bottom of the lens extension that's not usable.

Those Sutro Eyeshades will be part of the Heritage Colours Collection. There is
another Sutro Eyeshade with retina burn orbitals, blue earstems and vented Prizm Road Jade lenses. Radar EV Path will be part of the collection with Matte Celeste/Prizm Road and Carbon/Prizm Rose Gold. The AF version will have Radarlock instead of Radar EV and Sutros. - Oak

Tentative release date?

Since Tadej Pogacar won this year’s Tour de France (and last year's as well), I wanted to see what brand he was wearing (I usually don’t follow biking at all). Apparently it’s from Scicon:

https://sciconsports.com/

The designs of their glasses are very much in line with biking glasses nowadays. Not my thing, but I found this lens design to be interesting:




- Oak

Would have been all Kato all the time if Cav would have broke the record and not got boxed in on the final stage. These remind me of a cross between 100% Eyewear and Killerloop from the 80/90's

Thanks, O_taj.

Like I said, you guys are gonna hate the price on some of this stuff.

It was only a matter of time before Oakley had a Made in Japan titanium model. Luxottica bought Fukui Megane years ago, produced some Japan Titanium for various inhouse brands, and then opened up a second titanium factory earlier this year. I'd expect to see more Japanese Titanium in the future, though more mass produced and less expensive. - Oak


$2,207 USD is the current conversion price.

Don't know what surprises me more, to see the Kato in the background? Or that someone actually watched this movie. I figured all the flopping on the court during the season was more than enough of James acting that anyone could handle.

Goldberg is still wearing his Rx Mars - Dann

He's sporting them in Matt's other channel he posted last week too. I'm curious if they'll make it on shirts now that he's part of the Bunker Branding creator list Matt owns.

So I picked these things (Special NTWRK release) up thinking, what the hell, at least they aren't marked up. And just in case they were going to do something cool with them.

We'll they turned out to be even more boring than I could have imagined...lol. Essentially an existing model "OO9438-0158" with a card marked at xx of 50.

When I first saw that I was like "are you sure thats not xx of 50,000 or something? I mean not even a custom bag or anything. Well at least the box is nice.

Finding creative ways of dumping boring frames....lol

Thanks for the heads up.

That sucks.
You're not the only one apparently.
I wonder if Oakley will take that under warranty - BiGCoB


I was looking at other cases, so I was predicting. I have 6 kato. Only blue was broken. Only for now ...

Other colors may break over time.

Sorry about your misfortune, but thanks for the heads up. Given the price point and Oakley finally doing something significantly out of the box in awhile they would be having these issues.

Is this color way rocked by Mark Cavendish in Cycling Weekly going to be available?
- Rangerkw


They are now for both models, Kato and Kato X. The original Kato shows currently out of stock via Oakley with more "coming back soon." You can try the store finder and see if they are in stock near you, they show at one location here surprisingly for each model in the Sapphire,so they are out there.

Zero 0.3P
Black Rain frame - flippj

LOVE the originals Zero's line. I would spend $500 if they did a repop on some of these models with prizm lenses.

They have the Kato X as well, in black and Sapphire only. Only road left in regular Kato it looks like for now. It's just lens length is the only design different between the two correct?

Those wondering, $291

It’s about time they move off of the yellow....the radar ev was looking the same every year.....I really do like these, if they don’t sell enough as the TDF collection, they can just change the lens etchings to “team USA” collection and sell it as that....that ev kinda looks like an old “team USA” radar I have with the same colorway minus the red white and blue on top of the frame - Vale46



Back at the day they made each model for a different TdF Jersey. I liked them though. One in green, one in yellow and one in red dots.

- cmunozh

They should do a mixture of this and the colored clear frames like they did with the Antifree frames and the others back in the day.
