Cavendish is famous for clinical professionalism in regards to the selection of his riding equipments. He is known for cycling with non-sponsor equipment & switching in between Specialized S-Works footwear & long-discontinued Nike ones.
Thus, when somebody as choosy as Mark teams up with an elite designer brand such as Oakley, the outcome is sure to grab attention. The esteemed rider has reportedly co-developed the Jawbreaker sunglass with Oakley which is a far cry from the brands initial Eyeshade that was launched in 1980s.
The new Jawbreakers have been designed with Oakley’s signature plastic frame which is highly durable & impact-resistant lenses. The range of shades is engineered with Switchlock lens-altering technology that is akin to RadarLock & RacingJackets.
It would be more appropriate to term the Jawbreakers as ‘sport shield” rather than mere sunglasses given its huge structure. The Jawbreaker shades would feel large on the face but never obnoxious or heavy. It has got an excellent coverage which does not compromise ventilation. Thanks to hydrophobic coating from Oakley, the Jawbreaker shades never fog which would be great for riders racing at higher altitudes or during the cold months.
Jawbreaker’s lens have been swapped out through a nose-piece lift that releases clip over frame center & then bottom part of that frame will rotate down. This very methodology reminds of RacingJacket contour but then the new one is surely more elaborate given its single-piece lens design.
The Jawbreaker shades also promise exceptional lens quality. The users would experience added view field & the frame top does not interfere with sight line- even while the user is in a highly aggressive state on road bike.
The Jawbreaker ear-pieces are adjustable and could be customized by lifting the arm slightly & sliding earpiece in & out.
