The idea is that the Jawbreakers will provide a wider field of vision on the bike, reducing the chance of the frame obscuring a rider’s eyeline – something Cavendish may have experienced given his low, aggressive position when sprinting.“The Jawbreaker really started with a conversation at a pretty casual dinner with Mark Cavendish,” says Ryan Calilung, director of concept development at Oakley.Cheap Oakleys. “The one statement that really stuck with me from Mark is that when he puts on eyewear, it’s like he’s putting on armour.Oakley Sunglasses Outlet.“We actually tracked the movement of riders’ eyes and there were not only portions of the lens that people aren’t looking through at all, there are portions of the frame that people were attempting to look through.”

One thing we did notice was that there was a minor rattle/creak when the glasses were off, but once under tension on your face, the noise disappeared completely.Cheap Oakley Sunglasses.Our Radarlock Paths came with a road-friendly reddish-hued Prizm lens designed to increase contrast in all light conditions and help you pick out irregularities in the road surface along with white lines and other markings – you can buy Prizm lenses for other activities including ‘Trail’ ones which are intended to pick out changes in off-road surfaces and are what we’d pick for walking, trail running and mountain biking.

They’re not doomy dark and work well under tree coverage for example, but also take the edge off bright sunlight too. A really good all-round compromise with no obvious distortion.Did they accentuate road irregularities?Discount Oakley.Well, we certainly felt confident that we could see where we were heading and never once did that thing of crashing through an unseen pothole or being caught out by an unexpected ripple or ridge in the road surface.Oakley Sunglasses.

If Intel and Oakley get their way, soon you might be talking to your sunglasses, and they’ll talk back. Packed with Intel technology, Oakley’s newest eyewear called Radar Pace interacts with runners and cyclists using voice recognition, and aims to provide them with coaching feedback while they train.Oakley Sunglasses.OK Radar, start workout.Starting your workout. You can start running whenever you’re ready and I’ll be able to tell automatically.Discount Oakley.The wraparound sunglasses have ear buds to listen to the coach, and a microphone on the left temple picks up the user’s speech. To get the device’s attention, you say OK Radar.The choice to go for an audio-only system, rather than including a Google Glass-like heads up display, was partly to maximize battery life and partly to save weight.

The power lasts for six hours, which allows for it to be used on most longer distance training runs or rides, and the frame weighs in at 56 grams, which may feel a little heavier than a non-smart pair of sunglasses, but is not uncomfortable.Cheap Oakley Sunglasses. Visual displays, either in a pair of glasses or on a watch, also typically require a user to look elsewhere to read numbers, distracting them from the road ahead.Oakley Sunglasses For Men.“When people run with a wrist watch and have to constantly look at the watch all the time, it’s sort of the opposite of what you try to preach as a coach,” says Craig Alexander, an Oakley sponsored three-time Ironman world champion who now runs a coaching business. “You want movement and things that project or propel the body forward in an efficient manner, and looking at your watch is really not one of them.”

Though Radar Pace has built-in accelerometers and gyroscopes to measure movement, it connects via Bluetooth to a user’s smartphone, and relies on that device to run voice-recognition and coaching algorithms. Designers realized early on that most people would take their phones along with them anyway.Fake Oakleys.“There was a lot of idle processing power sitting down in their pockets,” says Luiz Dias, who manages the Radar Pace project at Oakley.Oakley Womens Sunglasses.The system, run through an app available for Android devices and iPhones, can also connect to other wearable devices a user might be wearing, such as heart rate straps and cycling cadence and power meters. Initially, Radar Pace doesn’t provide much in the way of feedback or training plans, other than metrics about each run or ride, and instead logs data as it learns about the user.

Similarly, talking to the coach can seem a little unnatural at first. But you get used to talking to yourself—or at least used to giving that impression to passersby—and you learn what questions and speech pattern work best with the automated coach. Apple’s automated assistant Siri has already been around for five years, and talking to a device doesn’t feel that uncomfortable or unusual anymore.Oakley Outlet.“The coach won’t tell you the capital of Nebraska,” says Chris Croteau, who runs the Intel side of the project.Oakley Sunglasses Sale. Although the voice recognition can adapt to different ways of asking the same question, users won’t get much help if they ask it anything outside the realm of running or riding. “if you hold down the touch panel, press it and hold it, it will initiate either Siri or Google Now, depending on the phone you have,” Croteau says.

Future software updates might expand some of the coach’s abilities, including adding different voices and perhaps weather advice, but most of the more complex distractions that someone might want on a long training route are effectively handed over to the phone.Oakley Sunglasses Outlet. Users can make phone calls and listen to music the same way they would with any other Bluetooth headset.Cheap Oakleys. Because the ear buds are detachable, users can also decide how much of the world they want to block out while they focusing on working out.Perhaps the biggest athletic advantage of using Radar Pace is to be able to diagnose and change running or riding mechanics on the fly.“The real essence of coaching is assessing performance and making little changes as you progress,” Alexander says.
