POLARIZED PIT BOSS®
He is the voice in the race driver’s headset and the commander of a crew that turns the blitz and frenzy of split seconds into poetry in motion. He is the boss, period. Oakley Pit Boss is the design that owns the respect of its namesake. When an attitude this assertive meets a sculpture this honed, it’s not about getting in somebody’s face and roaring orders. It’s the simple idea that you’ve earned your place, and they damn well better respect that.
An original vision of Oakley’s founder, Pit Boss was four years in the making. State-of-the-art technology wasn’t the issue. Oakley had already become a world leader in optical innovation, and from the first inception of this sunglass, everyone knew it would be a show case for the very best that science could offer. For the founding father of Oakley, it was a matter of art and style, and it became a relentless pursuit of perfection. Pit Boss had to be absolutely unique, completely original, and as outspoken and assertive as those who earn the right to wear it. Some of the most talented designers in the industry gave a chunk of their lives to attaining that vision. After years of tireless work, they nailed it.
The technology of Pit Boss is just as aggressive as the styling. It matches our stress-resistant O Matter® frame material with ultra-lightweight titanium plates, forged at searing temperatures and chiseled by Computer Numeric Controlled machinery with a precision of 0.002 inches. That’s just one five-hundredth of an inch, and it gives you an idea of the craftsmanship behind the creation. For high-velocity impact protection, we used hexalobular bolts to secure the plates with authority. Our Three-Point Fit maintains comfort all day while holding the lenses in precise optical alignment, and the lenses themselves are a thing of technical beauty.
Every frame comes with premium Oakley HDPolarized lenses that filter out 99% of glare without the visual haze and optical distortion that comes with ordinary polarized lenses. The back of each lens has the added protection and glare reduction of anti-reflective (AR) coating, and the front is augmented with Iridium® coating to further reduce glare while precisely balancing light transmission. On top of all that, we added Oakley Hydrophobic™/Oleophobic technology, a permanent coating that repels dust while maintaining a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils, fingerprints, lotions and sunscreens. It even repels water to prevent streaks and sheens from corrupting your point of view.
The lenses wrap your vision with 8.75 base curvature, a contour that extends peripheral view and improves side protection against sun, wind and impact. Even with the styling of that much curvature, you’ll have razor-sharp clarity at every angle of view because the lenses are engineered with XYZ OPTICS®, one of the patented innovations of High Definition Optics® (HDO®). The pure Plutonite®lenses filter out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. Optical precision meets the uncompromising standards of ANSI Z87.1, and same goes for protection against high-velocity and high- mass impact. If you need corrective optics, this frame is available with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses.
We created three unique lens/frame color combinations for Pit Boss, and the lenses in each rendition are designed for bright sun. The Matte Rootbeer & Bronze version comes with Tungsten Iridium® Polarized lenses that increase visual contrast to bring out detail and enhance depth perception. The Polished Black & Gunmetal edition comes with VR28® Black Iridium® Polarized lenses that offer the same benefits. If precise color perception is critical, choose the Matte Black & Titanium frame with Black Iridium® Polarized lenses.
Pit Boss is crowned with metal icons specially designed for the Oakley Elite family, an exclusive collection that seamlessly blends the world’s most advanced optical technologies with aesthetics like nothing ever seen in the realm of eyewear. Pit Boss comes with a custom display box suitable for collectors, plus a custom Microclear™ bag for lens cleaning and frame storage.
