Oakley has launched these new Radar EV glasses, joining the existing and popular Radar and Radarlock eyewear, a favourite of pros and amateurs alike.
The new Radar EV looks to take some inspiration from the recently released Jawbreakers (you can read that story here) with a taller lens compared to the regular Radar to provide an extended range of view in the upper peripheral region. We’re guessing EV stands for extended view.
The Radar EV is available in a choice of two lens shapes, Path or Pitch. The frame is made from the same O Matter material as the standard Radar glasses with the same grippy Unobtainium arms.
The lenses are interchangeable, with a hinged nose piece similar to the Jawbreakers allowing the lenses to be swapped out. Oakley has introduced the new Prizm lens, for both trail and road applications, developed to help “spot subtle changes in the texture of the road surface and with vents to prevent fogging.
The new Radar EV glasses cost £135 and there are various colours and lens tint combinations to choose from.
