Originality deserves its share of coin, so we created the world’s first frame that combines temples of lightweight C-5™ alloy with a front chassis made of stress-resistant O Matter®. The sculptural Unobtainium® earsocks of Currency™ salute the bike grip invention that launched Oakley, and our vintage logo strafes the sides with dimension. This comfortable eyewear goes from street to sport, so we engineered Twin Shock™ hinges that hyper-flex when life starts busting through boundaries.
Our very first creation was a bike grip with a unique design that fit the rider’s closed hand, and to honor warriors on wheels, we put the grip pattern on the outer facing of the earsocks. Our titanium Twin Shock™ hinges flex beyond their normal open position for added durability. They are an innovation inspired by the leaf springs of racing machines, and they don’t push the earstems into your head like inferior designs that maintain relentless pressure. The secure Three-Point Fit owes everything to Unobtainium®, a synthetic that makes the earsocks increase grip when you sweat. You can match Currency™ with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses in a wide range of options, and each frame comes with a collection specific case.
Oakley is renowned for optical technology, our company&rsqup;s innovations in frame architecture have always been the gold standard for precision, performance, durability and design. The latest Oakley breakthrough is a hinge mechanism that comes in two forms: Mono Shock™ and Twin Shock™, developed for Rx eyewear and sunglasses. Inspired by pro racing, the structures are similar to leaf springs used for shock absorption. Mono Shock™ has a single “tine&dquo; (a slender projecting part, like the tines of a fork) that bridges the frame and the ear stem. Twin Shock™ utilizes two.
Here are the key benefits:
Durability. The peerless architecture is sturdier than conventional hinges because no springs are used. Instead, the mechanism is a solid component that takes advantage of a durable yet lightweight alloy of titanium, a premium metal that resists corrosion.
Flexibility. Oakley formulated the alloy to be flexible. When you push an ordinary frame stem even a subtle distance beyond its normal open position, you risk breaking the hinge. With Oakley’s new design, the stem simply springs back to where it should be.
Comfort and fit. There is no inward pressure when the frame stems are in their normal open position. Subtle flexibility of the entire frame accommodates a wide range of head sizes.
Distinctiveness. This is a recognizable design feature, unique in its architecture and distinguishing in its simple beauty.
