Built as a 40-foot motor coach, the fully self-contained facility will offer live demonstrations of the companys optical performance and protection at retail locations, sport venues and other select public events.

"Consumers need to open their eyes to the fact that not all sunglasses are created equal, said Colin Baden, president of Oakley, Inc. We developed the Rolling O Lab to educate people about the truth of todays eyewear and to show firsthand how Oakleys HDO sunglasses provide the best optical clarity, impact resistance and UV protection in the industry. By taking our science to the street, we can reach out to those who might not have an opportunity to learn about the quality and performance of our eyewear."

It presents a high-quality image of the company by utilizing a comprehensive and meticulously crafted audio/visual package," continued Baden . "Scheduled to be on the road more than 300 days a year, it offers a brand emersion experience that tells the Oakley story, one of technical innovation, inspiration and optical superiority."
