These are the new Oakley Split Jackets, a less aggressively styled version of the popular Jawbones.
The frame is slimmer and less flared in places with softer, smoother lines that, we here at Bikemagic think anyway, look more stylish than the Jawbones on which they are based.
Oakley’s unique interchangeable lens design, Switchlock, is used so you can easily change lenses to suit the light conditions by opening the lower ‘jaw’ of the frame. All the usual lens options will be available, as well as the interesting new Transitions Solfx lenses that adapt to changing light with photochromic technology.
Price TBC. More at www.oakley.co.uk
Thanks to Mike Cotty for letting us borrow his pair of Split Jackets to photograph.
