Fox are hoping to break into the eyewear market in a big way in 2010, and with all their sunglasses combining Oakley technology with unique styling they’re certainly going about things the right way.
Of most interest to riders is the new Duncan Sport, which takes the classic Oakley wraparound style, materials (lightweight Plutonite lens, durable O-Matter frame, ‘Unobtanium’ ear and nose pieces) and interchangeable lenses, but adds a distinctive new look.
The distortion-free ‘High Deﬁnition Optics’ lenses feature Oakley’s complex ‘Polaric Ellipsoid’ shaping, which is designed to improve peripheral vision and cut glare. They also have a hydrophobic coating to repel water, dirt, dust and oil.
As you’d expect from a collaboration with Oakley, prices aren’t cheap – they range from £120-£160 (including hard case) depending on which lens you go for – but there is a variety of frame colours and lens options to choose from, including photochromic. We’re hoping to get a set in to test, so we’ll let you know how they fare.
