Hi O-guys,

Here's a spanish expat living in Switzerland.

Oakley collector since long time ago and owner of "some" pairs already. Mainly focused in sport ones as I not only show them but use them on the bike :-)

Cheers

Custom made, cycling world champion edition (therefore the rainbow).

I saw back at the day some kinda those ones done by outdoorevasion. They are unique as they are OCP but unless they were used by a world champion... they are a normal OCP.

Pretty happy with this one, everything adds up that it’s authentic, but the paint job looks pretty sloppy. Is this normal? Anyone who can verify? Thanks!

I had the same with my jawbones.

I can certainly get something into the DB, but as mentioned, perhaps it's best to make them their own models, sort of like how I separated the Petterson Frogskin just to ease up on the clutter. - Dann



Thanks Dann! I'll work on getting a post up on OF and see what info we can start to collect. - kjcolumbo


There's already a post in OF:

sorry if its a dumb question but what is a safehouse edition? ive never heard of them. - LEX7


From an Olympic standpoint, Safehouses were an Oakley venue they created for the athletes to go to outside of the Olympic Village where they can relax, mingle, eat/drink, and celebrate. It was a safe space for them to get away to. I believe they go back as far as Sydney, AUS in 2000. I have a keychain that says "Safe House" and has two phone numbers on one side, and the shape of AUS with an Oakley logo, and "Games '00" inside on the other. I'm sure Steve Blick was there handing out glasses to athletes.

At later Olympics, maybe as early as Vancouver, CAN in 2010, while athletes were there, they could just happen to get some special glasses made up in a wide range of colors. What made them different from OCP is that they were matte colors. They are also limited in the number of Oakley logos that can be on them, so for example, Fast Jackets, don't have the Oakley across the bridge. For Radar/XL, RadarLock/XL, and M Frames, the lenses did not include the Oakley logo. I don't think any of the Polarized lenses included the note on the bottom corner of the lens.

That I know of, I believe the following models were included
M Frames - limited - I've only seen a few examples, don't personally own any
Radar/Radar XL - Most common - have multiple in regular and straight stems
RadarLock/RadarLock XL - Most common - have multiple pair
Jawbones - limited - don't personally own any, but I see them in collections
Fast Jackets - Common - I own a few pair

There might be other models out there, but I believe these cover it.

For the 2012 Olympics in London, the colors were made to match up to the London Tube System. Starting at Sochi, Oakley started to step away from these SafeHouse edition glasses. Limited models were available in Sochi Green, but they were athlete exclusives. Brazil went went with the Green Fade, and began the trend of the colors being available to consumers. Harmony Fade was used for Korea, and then Kokuro Spin for Tokyo. I haven't heard anything yet about anything special for China coming up later this year.

I just have no words. super post :-)

I thought SH were inside the Olympic village but thanks for the heads up :-). I agree with your list of models despite I haven't seen any m frame SH.

Two more cents, I thought for Tokyo was de "Tokyo celebration" but due to the cancellation, they did the Kokoro. the China model is like an Odyssey ed. but with icons/stems in red.

How did the SH editions before London look like??

and I suppose Radarlock is only for the Asian market?

The "ironic thing" is that they launch to the market always cool colour combinations... for example the odyssey, the spin shift... but then they copy&paste smth or the Olympic games... :-(

I recap was as well another Safehouse at Kona for the Kona Ironman. I had back then a pair of Flak 2.0 built there (according to the girl to sold me the pair). I don't have them anymore as they were a present :-(

Safehouse were pairs available only for athletes inside the Oakley official store inside the Olympic Vila "Oakley Safehouse".

Thanks cmunozh! That's what I have seen too. There is also another collector that isn't on OF that I have picked some up from that I might be able to get some info from.

The additional info we'd need is what models beyond M Frame, Radar/XL, RadarLock/XL, Jawbones/Racing Jackets, and Fast Jackets, and if anyone knows any specific colors they were available in.

When I have some time, I'll work on starting a post on OF to see if we can collect some of this info and then maybe get the database entries started here. - kjcolumbo


As far as I know, no m frame was available at the SH.

About the colour, we can make them up and link them to the Tube Line, for example "Pink - Hammerstmith & City Line" or "Infrared - Central Line"

I would be happy to help in OF about with that post.

Meaning one colour per Tube line from the city of London if I recall it correct

Exactly. Many times we are based on the Guru's expertise to know if some frames are a safehouse or not.
