Oakley Carbon Prime Moto GP Side

When Oakley really goes for it, you tend to end up with what could only be described as the Ducati-equivalent to eyewear. That's exactly what you'll find with the Carbon Prime MotoGP, a highly-complex sunglass built with the very same materials like the superbikes it's inspired by. 

The frame is made from a mix of carbon fiber, titanium, and their proprietary O-matter and that's all brought together by one of the most sophisticated hinges you've ever seen on a sunglass. The cutaway on the earstem exposes the mechanical piece that looks like a miniature shock absorber, a detail that makes a traditional hinge look like some archaic relic of eyewear's past.
