Oakley 2011-2012

01 Aug, 2011


Oakley continues to set the stage for goggle designs and signature series.  Riders can take their pick from the classic A-Frame series, to the women’s stockholms to the popular Crowbars.  Their pro riders have their signature touch on everything from goggles to outerwear to softgoods in the collection.

It’s remarkable to see the variety of riders and signature styles that are part of the Oakley Pro Rider collection today.  In goggles, you have the main players like Shaun White and Gretchen Bleiler, to the charging Danny Kass and Marie France Roy.  In outerwear, signature styles from riders like Jake Blauvelt and Eero Ettala.

New for 11-12 in goggles, Oakley brings out the switchlock technology, an interchangeable lens design with a pivot switch that allows for easy lens changing so you can adapt to changing light and conditions.  This system is on the airbreak goggle.

Oakley Airbreak Goggle

When the sun shifts gears, Airbreak lets you adapt.  This interchangeable lens design has switchlock technology, so swapping out the lens is quick and easy.  Two lenses are included to prime you for a wide range of light conditions.  We designed the Airbreak for medium to large faces and rigged it with a rigid exoskeleton for protection, plus a flexible face plate that offers plush comfort.

Oakley Splice Goggle

We engineered splice with an internal skeletal support system that equalizes pressure so you’ll have maximum airflow and your nose won’t feel crushed.  The lens has a semi-flush mount to increase downward visibility and the strap outriggers stay out of the way to keep your peripheral view open and wide.  Built for medium to large faces, splice comes with proven Oakley comfort and clarity.

Oakley A-Frame Goggle

This design is so innovative, it’s been a favorite since the first edition was unleashed more than a decade ago.  The Oakley A-Frame goggle bunkers your eyes in protection while treating you to the comfort of triple layer polar fleece foam.  We designed it for small to medium size faces.  O Matter strap clips let you wear it with or without a helmet.

Oakley Stockholm Goggle

We applied three decades of goggle know-how and achieves the most comfortable design a woman can wear.  To cut fog, we created a dual vented lens and treated it with F3 anti-fog technology.  A triple layer of polar fleece foam wicks away moisture and maximizes comfort.  Sophisication and sass never felt so good.

Oakley Elevate

Elevate is designed for small to medium size faces and we crafted it with an internal skeletal support system that eliminates nasal pressure and boosts airflow.  With the O Matter strap clips, you can wear elevate with or without a helmet.  The fit is so precisely balanced, you’ll know what true comfort is supposed to feel like.

Oakley Crowbar Goggles

The problem with goggle straps is that they put all the pressure in one place.  Crowbar is engineered with outriggers that spread it around.  You’ll have an evenly balanced fit with the comfort of triple layer fleece foam that wicks away sweat during all-out sessions.  Crowbar has O-Matter strap clips so you can wear it with or without a helmet.  This performer is made for medium to large faces.
