About the Oakley Livestrong JAWBONE Sunglasses

Oakley’s legacy of sports performance innovation continues with the new JAWBONE. The latest evolution of a coveted design, this frame is like nothing ever seen in the world of sports. Every aspect is engineered around the clarity and protection of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS.

With Oakley’s new SWITCHLOCK Technology, the lower part of the frame rim opens to allow easy access for quick lens changing, letting you optimize performance in any light condition. The revolutionary design holds the lenses with a suspension system so stresses on the frame won’t affect the optical vision, and you still get the optimised comfort and fit of a flexible frame design.

Pivot the nose piece to unlock the lower jaw and open it for easy lens changing. With minimal handling involved, lenses remain free of fingerprints. The quick-release system closes with a cam that locks each lens securely in place.

Oakley have engineered the pivoting system with a release mechanism that also lets you easily remove and replace the nose piece with a different size to customize the fit. A comfortably secure fit is essential for athletic competition, so Oakley started this new design with the company’s famous Three-Point Fit. No more hooking the ears like normal glasses, a Three-Point Fit ensures the frame touches the wearer only at the bridge of the nose and the sides of the head. Strategically placed flex zones give the frame a broad range of flexibility while directing stresses away from the lenses.

Oakley is proud to partner with the Lance Armstrong Foundation in support of its ongoing mission to inspire and empower people affected by cancer. When you purchase the LIVESTRONG® edition of Oakley eyewear, the company will provide $20 to the foundation.
