Oakley Road Cycling Sunglasses: Best of 2019

Oakley has been paving the way for cycling glasses since the introduction of the Eyeshades at the Tour De France in 1984. Since then, Oakley has continuously set the bar for performance standards in the cycling world. Staying ahead of the pack through innovative design and functionality have been key drivers to the success of Oakley Sunglasses. With so many great options to choose from we had to break it down so you can find the frames that are perfect for you.

PRIZM Road and PRIZM Road Black Lenses for Cycling

Having the best cycling frame is only half of the equation for the best pair of cycling sunglasses. Adding in a world-class lens will take your riding to the next level. Oakley PRIZM Lens Technology works by manipulating the light spectrum to boost contrast and make details in your environment easier to pick up on. PRIZM Road specifically caters to the road environment, helping you to see better and react faster for a more enjoyable experience.

PRIZM Road Black was recently introduced to the PRIZM Collection with bright light road conditions in mind. You can see how the two road lenses compare in our PRIZM Road vs. Road Black Guide. In the meantime, find out more about PRIZM Road in the video below.
