For the most part incredible optics with street driven tint and tall shield, yet fringe vision is squeezed Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm Road shades are, generally, a fantastic combine of shades for street cycling.
The optics are perfectly clear with no mutilation and the Prizm tint illuminates street surface and in addition give the essential UV assurance and shade for your eyes. The flexible fit is agreeable and, because of Oakley’s alleged Unobtainum elastic bits, very strong.
Truly, the look is polarizing (pardon the joke), yet I’ll concentrate here on what you see from the back to front, not how the glasses themselves look. That is for you to judge.
The 53mm tall focal point functions admirably to ride in the drops. The broadened upper piece gives you a chance to see up the street when your head is tilted down. The 131mm width wraps around the face impressively, with scalloped lower areas accounting for your cheekbones. My own particular grumble with the development configuration is the means by which the Oakley logo juts on the two sides into your fringe vision.
There are tradeoffs in regards to the benefits of frameless glasses as opposed to something like the Jawbreaker with a full casing. Frameless offers incredible, unhindered vision, be that as it may, on the off chance that you drop them, you scratch them. The Jawbreaker outline isn’t generally obvious (spare those irritating logos), unless you’re extremely feigning exacerbation, and it has spared me over and over when coincidentally dropping the glasses.
The nosepiece is customizable for width and the earpieces for length. Both element a shabby elastic that Oakley, in obvious Oakley mold, calls ‘Unobtanium’. Whatever the senseless name, the stuff works great. When rattling crosswise over lousy street surfaces or even the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix, the glasses stay superbly set up, regardless of how much sweat is pouring off your face.
Discussing pouring sweat, Oakley has an astounding water-diverting treatment that it puts outwardly of the focal points. For my cash, I’d get a kick out of the chance to see it within, as well, as sweat smears are irritating.

The vents on the focal point carry out their activity. I still can’t seem to see the focal points misting up, regardless of moderate, difficult moving in a full scope of temperatures.
Opening the Jawbreakers to change or clean the focal point is a clean mechanical process. You flip up the nosepiece on a turn, slide open a little metal lock and the upper and lower outline pieces at that point rotate open like a jaw.
The channels that hold the focal point have minimal elastic guards too for a peaceful and secure fit. The Jawbreakers aren’t the lightest things on the planet, however at 34g they aren’t an annoyance all over. The Jawbreakers arrive in an assortment of edge hues and unique release models.
