Oakley created Tightrope for the kind of active lifestyle that follows the road only far enough to find its own path. Think of this frame as a sport inspiration that got a taste of the street. Tightrope walks the line between performance and polish, and in the process, gives you the best of both worlds. Three-point fit is a patented innovation that ensures the frame makes contact only at the bridge of the nose and the sides of the head. It holds lenses in precise optical alignment with a secure fit that eliminates the pressure points common with frames that hook the ears. Unobtainium earsocks provide increased comfort and performance. Increases grip with sweat. Plutone Lens is one of the most optically pure materials used in eyewear today, it maximizes clarity and impact resistance while filtering out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. Not a coating, the UV protection is from the lens material itself. Five metal compounds (C-5) are superheated and fused into this durable yet lightweight alloy that serves as the chassis of Oakley Wire frames and as components in other styles. High Definition Optics (HDO) is a collection of patented technologies that allow Oakley eyewear to meet or exceed the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute for optical clarity, visual fidelity, and impact resistance.
Important Note: Use care when installing/removing accessory lenses. Scratched lenses can not be returned and are not covered under Oakley's warranty policy.
