This special edition Oakley Radar commemorates the Livestrong fight against cancer. If you read "It's Not About The Bike", you might recall that Lance said that only three of his sponsors stood strong alongside him when he was diagnosed with cancer: Nike, Giro, and Oakley. He said he'd have allegiance to them forever. It's a pretty moving bit of loyalty, and it's one we think of every time we see these glasses. We offer the Radar in a variety of styles. While this one has classic styling thanks to its simple black frame with nuanced "Livestrong Yellow" detail, what sets it apart in the Radar family is the fact that Oakley donates $20 to the Lance Armstrong Foundation for every set of Livestrong Radars sold.The Livestrong Radar comes with Black Iridium lenses. Black Iridium is a superb choice for the spring and summertime. It transmits only 10% of the available light to your eyes, also making it ideal for bright, sunny days. The great thing about Oakley Iridium lenses is that the Iridium coating creates a uniform filtering layer that optimizes contrast and reduces glare. It's a central reason why Oakley optics are so special in comparison to any other brand glasses.The lens is large in a modern, high-fashion way without being too big -- a design Oakley calls the "Path" lens. We prefer the Path lens because we believe it is large enough to protect the eyes while being small enough so it doesn't overheat the head and seal the eyes off from the world. One other vital detail is that the lens is hydrophobic with a new oleophobic coating for better vision. Sweat won't streak your lens and muddy up your field of view. Rather these coatings cause moisture to run off the lens with no residue. The frame is made from Oakley O-Matter. There is soft Unobtanium at the temple ends and the nose to better grip the face. Unobtanium is slightly hydrophilic, so it will grip better when wet and sweaty. The lens is made from Plutonite and has Oakley's famed High Definition Optics (HDO). The Radar comes with a zipper case that has room for a spare lens and a microfiber bag that is both a lens cleaning cloth and soft storage.
