Stay on trend with the Pitchman R from Oakley. Following design cues from the Pitchman, the Pitchman R takes a different approach with round lenses. Originally introduced as an opthalmic(eyeglass) frame, the Pitchman R features the same construction that has become a Oakley fan favorite. Sunglass Rob and Oakley Rep, Nick Farnham, dive into all the details of this sunglass in the video below.
The Pitchman R has more of a medium fit and features dual frame construction incorporating C5 alloy temples and O Matter. A classic keyhole nosebridge give the frame a timeless look that is wearable with anything. Incorporate some hollowpoint hinges and you have a pair of glasses that are ready for anything.
Hollowpoint Hinge: At first glance, the Hollowpoint Hinge System may not look like much. It is a minimalist design, but the function is clear. It is a self-contained spring cam mechanism and an internal piston. This allows the temples to move freely and it gives them the flexibility to be bent outward without compromising the strength of the frame. And the best part is that there is no possibility of losing a screw if it's not there to begin with.
Dual Frame Material: Unlike most traditional frames, the Pitchman R is made from two different materials. The front of the frame is composed of O Matter for a lightweight feel and increased durability. C5 alloy temple arms meet the O Matter front at the hinges for the ultimate weight and durability combination.
Fit: A classic keyhole nosebridge and gives the Pitchman R a classic style that can be worn on the daily. The back half of the steel temple arms are covered in Unobtanium grip to help keep the frames from slipping. And if you do break a sweat, they won’t budge because he more you sweat, the stickier and tackier Unobtanium becomes. The frame size is great for small to medium faces.
PRIZM Lens Technology: Oakley designed PRIZM lenses to enhance contrast in specific environments. The lenses work by filtering out the noisy colors while simultaneously boosting the colors that our eyes are most sensitive to.
