Oakley Jawbone Prescription sunglasses

BikeRadar verdict

100.0 out of 5 stars

"Corrected vision for bespectacled cyclists, at last"

Friday, June 15, 2012 9.00am By

Getting a prescription onto a curved lens is mighty hard. Even Oakley have struggled – until now. If you’re a speccy cyclist then these sunglasses will be a revelation. 

We expect optical clarity from Oakley’s standard lenses. But it’s still a surprise just how clear corrected vision is with the Jawbones – no fuzziness, just pin-sharp clarity with excellent peripheral vision coverage. 

Even with a strong prescription and thick lenses they only weigh 35g and, importantly, look no different to normal shades. The simple ‘lock’ system means you can easily swap lenses. If you already own Jawbones, you can buy prescription lenses separately from around £150.
