Safety on every trail with Oakley
High quality, innovative technologies and appealing designs for sporting activities such as skiing, golf, surfing, skating and more - that's the Californian brand Oakley. The company has also made a name for itself in cycling and is even considered a pioneer in the sports eyewear sector. We take a closer look at the high-quality bike equipment and clothing from Oakley.
Design meets functionality
From the very beginning, Oakley has made it its goal to combine functionality, quality and design. Since its foundation, the company has focused on innovative and modern products that turn regular utility items into real eye-catchers. With this approach, Oakley was able to revolutionise the sports eyewear industry, for example, and has been considered a pioneer for decades.
Whether on snow-covered mountains or kilometre-long bike trails, hobby athletes and professional athletes alike use the wide range of products.
When you hear the name Oakley, you often first think of modern and sophisticated sports eyewear. This is mainly due to the technological innovations that the brand is always developing. This includes, for example, Prizm™ technology, which is also integrated in many cycling glasses.
Specially manufactured lens tints filter out disturbing stray light to guarantee better vision. At the same time, certain colours are highlighted, which improves overall vision and makes the surroundings look more vivid. Contrasts are sharpened and details become even more visible. Especially on mountain bike trails, it is enormously important to see the terrain in the best possible way in order to recognise potential dangers in time.
But no matter where you are on the saddle, the ability to make out different road conditions increases safety enormously and relieves your eyes on long rides. The Prizm™ Road lenses are available in three colours and with 11 percent, 14 percent or 20 percent light transmission.
All Oakley cycling glasses have one thing in common: they are optimally designed for outdoor conditions and adapt to your needs.

No bike tour should lack a helmet. In addition to a protective function, a good fit and sufficient ventilation are also particularly important. For this reason, Oakley cycling helmets are aerodynamically shaped and designed for maximum comfort. At the same time, they are very light so as not to put unnecessary strain on the head.
The MIPS® integration provides additional safety. MIPS stands for Multi Directional Impact Protection System and describes 360° protection in the event of an impact. Classic helmets are designed to absorb static impacts at right angles, which are not always realistic in cycling. The MIPS safety system, on the other hand, is prepared for any kind of impact, as well as other risk elements such as low-hanging branches on the track.
Particularly practical: models like the ARO3 or ARO5 have an integrated eyewear dock for quick access and safe storage. The DRT5 MTB helmet also has a goggle parking position in its rear folding temple hooks.
A perfect fit
Anyone who sits in the saddle for a long time appreciates the advantages of quality cycling clothing. Gloves guarantee a good grip on the handlebar, cycling shorts promise long-lasting comfort and breathable bike jerseys support you during especially sweaty sections.
For the best possible biking experience, Oakley offers everything your cycling outfit needs and, just like with the equipment, relies on high-quality materials, precise workmanship as well as sophisticated functionality and a modern look.
