Think of the Pitchman R as a classic roadster, but upgraded with the heart of a Tesla engine. Oakley's newest optical frame is a perfect coupling of a new and old, mixing timeless contours and vintage frame finishes with the company's high-tech earstems. The earstems feature an innovative Hollowpoint hinge that is inspired by hub-less motorcycle wheels. That means there's no screw to loosen and fall out so you'll never have to worry about your frames falling apart.
