About Oakley Jawbreaker - Polished Black/Clear to Black Photochromic
The Oakley Jawbreaker legacy continues in photochromic, creating vision whilst blocking harmful UVA and UVB rays.
The Oakley Jawbreaker™ is the ultimate sport design - answering the demands of world-class athletes with a 40 year heritage of uncompromising excellence. Oakley innovation has reached the pinnacle of performance by offering everything from surge ports for cooling airflow to Unobtainium® components for a comfortably secure fit, and with the hassle-free lens changing of Switchlock™ technology for vision optimization in any setting.
"For the cyclist it’s always been a tradeoff [to] get field of view and maximum protection but sacrifice ventilation,” says Oakley concept development director Ryan Calilung.
“The size is intentional to give the user all three – an increased upward field of view with ventilation and protection. This is important for the ‘eyes-up/head-down’ body position for cycling. Jawbreaker has a level of vision and protection without compromise, beyond what the consumer has seen before. It’s a statement piece with real performance benefits.”
