Oakley Deviation


“Oakley Deviation is a cool style, all squared and all manly! It presents a classic look, and Oakley’s always stick to your face no matter what. Check out some pictures of these, they drop on the 1st of April 2012, not sure when they hit South African shores though”

These actually remind me a bit of Mosley Tribes Enforcer as well as Ray Ban Caravan. Unfortunately Ray Ban Caravan don’t come in a polarized version (Well the original ones anyway, not the flip outs) and Mosley Tribes aren’t readily available in South Africa.

This first pic is my favorite, cool and understated, yet powerful:

Those two are polarized, and they are naturally available in non polarized as well.

This is what Oakley say about them:

The stone-cold cool of vintage aviators now has the heat of Oakley attitude. Deviation™ pours classic styling into a lightweight frame of C-5™ alloy with a unique square lens shape and the all-day comfort of sure-grip Unobtainium®. Premium optical technologies are paired with a look that strafes past the ordinary and lets originality fly solo.

Many of our frames have “8+ base curvature” (which is tech talk for the lens contour that angles back at the sides), but we wanted Deviation to flat-out deviate from the norm. The idea here is a genuine salute to classic aviators. That’s why we reduced the curvature to 6 base, and the look is pure vintage. To earn our icon, Deviation had to hone an edge on style, so sculptural detailing on the ear stems gives it a fresh vibe that stays true to the look. The final touch is a signature Oakley logo on the top of the bridge.

Five metal compounds are superheated to create C-5, the comfortably lightweight alloy of Oakley Deviation. With our Three-Point Fit, the ear stems don’t hook your ears with uneven pressure points, and the lenses stay in precise optical alignment. We made Deviation with adjustable nosepads for a custom fit plus Unobtainium earsocks for a no-slip grip.

Keep a look out for those, they’re going to be awesome.
