Awarded more than 600 unique patents, Oakley has earned its place at the pinnacle of design and innovation since its first invention in 1975. The company’s research teams continually experiment to break the boundaries of convention. We do it to solve consumer problems. Sometimes we do it just because we can.

Many Oakley breakthroughs are revolutionary and result in highly successful product designs. In rare cases, the unique processes or premium materials do not have commercial applications because the aesthetics are too far beyond conventional

possible without the world’s most advanced structural technologies. Oakley Elite C SIX utilizes pure carbon fiber, a material thinner than human hair yet stronger than high tensile steel. This breakthrough material, an innovation from the aerospace industry, is assembled into structures more than 40 layers thick. Five-axis Computer Numeric Controlled machining then carves and and shapes the composite with a process that requires more than 24 hours of continuous milling using probe telemetry with micro-precision.

With production technologies originally developed for the manufacturing of premium wristwatches, aluminum is sculpted in custom-engineered tooling processes including precise 20,000 rpm cutting by Computer Numeric Controlled robotics. The aluminum structures are anodized with electricity then combined with carbon fiber components and a flexible titanium spine. This labor intensive process includes hand assembly, followed by hand finishing and hand polishing.

art technology wasn’t the issue. Oakley had already

become a world leader in optical innovation, and everyone knew this invention would be a showcase 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. The journey led to a design of ultra-lightweight titanium plates

created with 200 tons of pressure and fused to pure OMatter ® frame material. Precision engineering finally found some attitude, and outspoken styling proved technology could be a work of art.

GLARE

OAKLEY HDPOLARIZED Oakley HDPolarized lenses 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 glare reduction of anti-reflective (AR) coating.

OAKLEY HYDROPHOBIC™ / OLEOPHOBIC COATING This permanent lens coating repels dust while maintaining a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils, fingerprints, lotions and sunscreens. It also repels water to prevent streaks and sheens from corrupting vision.

IMPACT PROTECTION Premium materials and proprietary geometries allow ELITE eyewear to meet the uncompromising standards of ANSI Z87.1, the high-performance impact tests defined by the American National Standards Institute. Testing includes a five-inch metal spike dropped from over four feet, and a quarter-inch steel shot traveling at 102 mph.

OAKLEY HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® Developed to meet the demands of the world’s greatest athletes, Oakley High Definition Optics (HDO®) is a collection of proprietary and patented technologies that maximize clarity at every angle of view while maintaining unbeatable impact protection and 100% UV filtering. Tests from the American National Standards Institute prove HDO® superiority. In this performance assay, a laser beam is fired through each lens in a frame. In the picture at the left, the laser dots merge at the center because Oakley HDO® helps both eyes see the exact same image. At the right, standard lenses bend light and separate the laser beams. Each eye sees a different picture, forcing the brain to work overtime and diminishing performance.
