On the cutting edge between sport and lifestyle, Oakley Valve™ is for active lives that demand both performance and pace-setting style. Stress resistant O Matter® frame material makes it lightweight while Unobtainium® components increase grip with perspiration, and the comfortable Three-Point Fit keeps the lenses precisely aligned for the clarity of High Definition Optics®. If you’re looking for a go-anywhere, do-anything sunglass that blends street smarts with brilliant innovation, this is it.
Whether you’re a weekend warrior or just someone who wants the Oakley benchmark of technology in your everyday life, Valve delivers. In fact, the optical performance meets ANSI Z87.1 standards (like premium pure-sport sunglasses), and this eyewear even has impact resistance that meets ANSI Z80.3 basic impact standards. The lens curvature opens your peripheral view while our pure Plutonite® lens material filters out every ray of ultraviolet light, not just UVA and UVB.
Check out the full range of frame colors including the cool look of Carbon Fiber, and see how we used a contrast color for the earsocks on select editions. If you don’t want glare to distract your attention and strain your eyes, go with a design that features Oakley HDPolarized lenses. Iridium® lens coating further reduces glare while tuning and balancing light transmission for the best vision in a chosen environment.
Designed to balance light transmission and reduce glare, this premium lens coating is made with superheated metal oxides. It is available in a spectrum of colors for optimizing vision in virtually any light condition.
Improving safety, comfort and performance, Oakley HDPolarized lenses filter out 99% of reflected glare without the haze and optical distortion that can come with polarized lenses made with conventional manufacturing techniques.
