Product Description

A six-ton generator cranks the 425,000 watts that are devoured by X Metal® and five-axis machining maintains 0.0005" precision. Envisioned by the styling eye of Oakley Board Member Michael Jordan, the second generation of X Metal® is a sculptural mechanical frame, logically structured around a new circular lens design. Mars™ is rendered in three configurations, including wrapped leather.

Strengths:    Super cool design, made for life (formed from one piece of Ti), great fit for athletics.

Weaknesses:    Fit is soo close to your face, the lenses can fog in damp weather.

Bottom Line:   
These are the coolest and best glasses in the world.
First the science: Formed from a single piece of Ti. Ear pieces and nose piece are attached by a joint that allows them to move independant of each other for great fit. Design actually hods lense in front of your face to mimic that actually way your eye fits in your head. This can take some time to get used to if your are like me (& your smart) and you got perscription - why spend so much money for non-perscription? I've crashed many a times and they have not fallen off yet. Even rode with then on a roller coaster and they did not fall off!
Now for the beauty: They are the coolest looking (& very futuristic) looking glasses I've ever owned. I get a lot of looks and positive comments about them. My G-Friend even likes them. Any guy will tell you, that is not an easy thing to do.
