How Oakley Replica Olympic Shades Could Help Athletes See Gold This Summer

Bubba Watson will see plenty of green on the Olympics golf course in Rio de Janeiro. But it won’t be the same green the rest of us see. Filtered through specially tinted Oakley shades, Watson’s version will have heightened contrasts that accentuate some colors and downplay others. It’s a modified view of the playing field that he and a handful of other Olympians hope will ultimately help them see another color this August: gold.

Whether it’s clarifying the subtle undulations on the fairway or highlighting white lines on race track, Oakley says its new Green Fade sunglasses aim to give athletes an edge by filtering light and creating what is essentially an artificial color spectrum optimized for the sport they play.

And before you scoff at the idea of performance-enhancing replica sunglasses, there’s actually some actual science (and logic) behind Oakley’s tinting technology. “If sunglasses filter certain colors, then the eye’s response curves will be responding to the transmitted colors and not sensitive to the blocked colors,” says Steven Jacques, an optics researcher at Oregon Health & Science University. “In other words, the wavelengths observed are now ‘more defined.’”

Defining specific wavelengths can have benefits for some athletes. Just ask Kerri Walsh, who will be wearing Oakley Replica Prizm field lens on the Copacabana sand in Rio. Walsh says the tinting technology enhances whites against blues and can help her track the volleyball against the sky. “Most competitions are in the middle of the day, and sun is a huge variable,” she says. “Seeing the ball as quick and clear as possible is a game changer.”

Filtering colors ultimately results in losing visual information, it can be a strategic sort of loss for athletes. “This could be an advantage if there were colors that were distracting,” says Jacques.

Lords of Light

Getting rid of or minimizing those distractions means fussing with the wavelengths in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Some of those wavelengths are shorter, like violet and blue, and some are longer, like orange and red. By using specific dyes in the polycarbonate they make lenses out of, cheap Oakley engineers can alter transparency and opacity to specific wavelengths. To see the subtle nuances of a blue ocean, for instance, engineers might screen the greens.

Most Prizm lenses have three or four distinct peaks in their light transmission profile. Highlighting those peaks creates a gap on either side of a specific wavelength. According to Oakley outlet, this tuning helps athletes pick up on nuances otherwise missed with the naked eye. Instead of washed out, dull, or flat landscapes, certain details and objects pop—like a baseball, for example. The Oakley field lens is supposed to make the white of a baseball to stand out against both a blue sky and a green field (colors also helpful for track athletes in Rio, who’ll wear them to help see painted lines). “It is very easy to dull white, but not as easy to make white even brighter,” says Wayne Chumbley, Oakley’s vision performance lab manager. “The only way is by dulling the surrounding colors.”

Now the only question is whether cool replica sunglasses can make you run faster.

Runs on days with full sunshine call for a proper set of shades. In mid-summer, the days are at their longest, meaning that more likely than not, runners are going to encounter rays of sunshine while out on their favourite routes. Running in summer comes with many rewards however running through the sunniest days of the year can result in dealing with glare and blinding conditions.

This summer, Oakley replica has got your covered with the EVZero Range glasses. This pair has so many runner-friendly features which are sure to make it one of the most popular this season. One of the first things that runners notice when testing out a new pair of shades is the weight. A too heavy pair will bounce up and down causing several distractions. But that’s not the case with the EVZero. Coming in at just 22g, they are incredibly light, and flexible so runners will get a proper fit. In fact, our testers found that this one of the of the lightest pairs that they had sampled.

It’s always a good sign when a sports apparel company takes feedback and criticism and adjusts new products accordingly. That can definitely be said of Oakley outlet uk. The Oakley Zeros series from the 1990’s is what the brand is building off of here. The models are similar in that they are both frame-less and light. Past criticisms of the old version were that there was not enough coverage. That has been updated for this model. Runners will notice that these are more shielded to keep the eyes safe from the wind and sun.

As one would expect from fake Oakley, the lenses are extremely high quality. These lenses are designed to make sure that endurance athletes can see the roads or trails ahead clearly regardless of the lighting conditions. Even when lighting is flat or when it’s constantly varying (like on shaded trails for example) runners can trust that these lenses will keep visibility as clear as possible.

Smaller features are not to be overlooked though. Oakley has a reputation with being consistently on-point with key features of their sports replica sunglasses, namely the nose piece and the arms piece. That’s no different in this case. The arms are light and will hug the face keeping them secure even on tougher terrain.

All in all, with their sleek, light design, and high quality lenses, we found these to be an all-round success and a model that runners of all abilities can count on.
