Oakley has a multitude of designs that dominate the peloton, but these new Sutro’s are the brand’s new take on the modern-retro styling made popular by 100% and Mr Peter Sagan’s antics.
Oakley says the Sutro is aimed at the urban cyclist, but I can see plenty of style conscious roadies opting for these over the tech-laden Radar’s or Flight Jackets.
The Sutro’s Prizm lens is simply wonderful, its even tint and absolute clarity is brilliant on the bike and at 58mm deep they offer massive coverage.
The full frame intrusion is minimal and the arms are well sprung and hold the glass in place even without the usual Oakley rubber tips.
The chunky square-section frame keeps the lens away from your face, so these didn’t fog like I’d have expected with just a little intrusion on the edges.
The package however is uninspiring, with just a soft cleaning bag included in the price.
