Oakley, the constant innovator
Oakley invents each new product with a design philosophy called sculptural physics: the discipline of solving problems with science and wrapping those solutions in art. Supported by an infrastructure that includes the latest tools of technology, Oakley engineers and artisans continue to expand the company�s array of product categories.
As the undisputed leader in performance eyewear, Oakley continues to advance sport technology and redefine the lifestyle market with patented optical innovations. Numerous patents have been awarded to the inventions behind the company�s High Definition Optics� (HDO�). HDO� virtually eliminates the problems of ordinary lenses, including distortion that bends light (so objects aren�t really where they appear to be) and optical flaws that magnify images in the manner of prescription lenses made for somebody else.
Engineered to optimize performance and comfort for professional athletes, Oakley apparel designs are coveted also by the lifestyle market. The company utilizes membrane technologies that maintain waterproof yet breathable barriers. Temperature is controlled with reversible heat storage, a science developed for astronauts. Rejecting the flat cutouts of conventional garment design, Oakley uses CAD/CAM digital sculpturing to achieve the comfort and fit of contours that accent the female form. Additional technologies range from the temperature control of inflatable insulation systems to the impact protection of Bio Foam panels.
Oakley offers a full line of accessories designed for efficiency, comfort, convenience and style. The company�s backpacks and bags are engineered with ergonomics, reinforced against punishing abuse and enhanced with premium utility features. Products are optimized for specific uses, such as the company�s surf pack that features a removable wet/dry compartment and changing mat. Oakley�s unique sculptural design produces never-before-seen aesthetics in accessories that range from wallets and belts to surfboard bags, purses and eyewear cases.
