In competition, the world’s best athletes lay down lines that no one else can hope to follow. We bring that idea to eyewear, styling it with art that has no equal. SPLINTER® is a look of street sophistication that takes inspiration from Oakley athletes, and if you look closely, you can see the character of our best sport frames in the sleek sculpture of C-5™ alloy. We used that unique blend of five metal compounds to achieve premium durability with low weight, and it’s just one reason why SPLINTER earns our metal icons.
Even the best style in the world is nothing without comfort, so we designed SPLINTER with custom-engineered spring hinges and added UNOBTAINIUM® sleeves to the temples. That way, SPLINTER maintains a secure fit that stays comfortably in place, even when you sweat. The frame makes contact only at the sides of the head and the bridge of the nose, taking full advantage of Oakley’s Three-Point Fit that holds the lenses in precise optical alignment.
The lenses are made of pure PLUTONITE®, a material that filters out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. Ultraviolet light can sneak around the sides of any sunglass lens, so we engineered SPLINTER with 8.75-base lens curvature to maximize protection. Doing that was no simple task because extreme lens contours can affect vision. That’s why we invented XYZ OPTICS®, a patented technology that maintains visual clarity along the entire lens contour, even in the periphery. Put it all together and you have sunglasses with a level of clarity and impact protection that meets all ANSI Z80.3 standards.
This frame is available with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses (+2.00 through -3.00 combined power), and other premium options are available. Oakley HDPolarized lenses eliminate 99% of blinding glare without the haze and optical distortion common to ordinary polarized lenses. You can also get IRIDIUM® lens coatings that reduce glare while balancing light transmission to give you the best vision possible.
