Delivers power, strength and endurance. Targeted support increases blood flow to key muscle groups, delivering oxygen-rich blood and reducing lactic acid buildup. Fatigue is diminished while muscle awareness and balance are enhanced.
Critically Placed Mesh
Flow-through mesh panels eliminate ballooning by allowing water and air to escape, keeping the surfer light and agile in the water.
Taking water repellence to the extreme, this technology makes products "hyper-hydrophobic." That means they resist water absorption and water retention, and dry quickly.
Welded seams that maintain durability with reduced weight, their low profile virtually eliminates snagging and chafing. Select designs also utilize the technology for weatherproofing.
Reduced weight is an obvious benefit to comfort, and our innovation focuses on achieving it with a level of durability that respects the heritage of Oakley performance technology.
O Stretch Ripstop
Combines HydroFree™ water repellence with the free movement, adaptable fit and shape retention of resilient stretch (up to 120% from its relaxed state). Ripstop texturing reduces skin contact for less abrasion and greater freedom of movement.
A prime feature of Oakley performance boardshorts, our zipper-free Lycra design lays flat to provide the ultimate in comfort on a surf board.
Achieved without thread, this fusion of textiles along seams reduces the threat of abrasion during movement, and is particularly beneficial during golf swing. In some products, the technology is used to prevent water entry.
