Oakley lenses are available with Transitions® SOLFX™ photochromic technology and darken and lighten automatically in response to changing light.

Keep Up With Mother Nature’s Changing Moods

Whether you’re golfing, mountain biking or pounding pavement on a training run at dawn, you can’t maintain peak performance unless your eyes keep up with your environment. That’s why Oakley Activated by Transitions® SOLFX™ lenses are engineered to darken and lighten automatically.

  • They help you adapt to changing light conditions so you’ll always perform at your best.
  • They filter out 100% of all UV, even when the lens color lightens to help you see in dimmer environments where UV is still a threat.
  • You get the added benefit of having lenses that aren’t too dark when the sun pulls a disappearing act, or too light when it knifes through clouds.

Let’s say you’re jogging up a trail, or biking down a mountain and railing turns on sketchy hardpack. With Oakley Activated by Transitions® SOLFX™ technology, your lenses lighten to show you hazards on shaded paths, then darken to shield your eyes on open trail. But that’s just half the story.

Oakley has combined Transitions® SOLFX™ photochromic technology with balanced light filtering to boost visual contrast, even in low light. That’s a key benefit for athletes because it improves depth perception. On top of that, they get the unbeatable clarity of Oakley’s High Definition Optics® (HDO®).
