Oakley Team GB edition sunglasses - First look

Radar and Flak Jacket get the Union Jack treatment

Oakley have climbed aboard the London 2012 Olympics bandwagon with special edition Team GB models of their Radar and Flak Jacket shades.

Both models feature Union Jack Oakley ‘icons’ on the temples and come with limited edition Team GB soft cases. The Team GB Radar (£165) has a dark blue frame, red ear socks and red iridium lenses, while the special edition Flak Jacket (£175) has a blue and white frame, white ear socks and grey polarized lenses.

The collection goes on sale in May in the UK only, and will be available until the end of the year. Visit Oakley's UK website for further details.

After early cycling flirtations with the Tour de France on childhood holidays, John Whitney fell for it hook, line and sinker in his mid-20s as an escape from the more sedate sports of his youth. As a classically trained news reporter, he snagged his dream job as a cycling writer straight out of college and is now fully immersed in the industry and wouldn't have it any other way.
