Eye-wear – Oakley Doakley

On a slightly lighter note from the last two posts, ahem, have you noticed that the riders  in the professional peleton are wearing these guys more (again) in 2012?

RADAR® PATH™

These guys work

SKU# 26-214

As opposed to these newer fangled things that some guy Cavendish is sporting:

JAWBONE

Jawbone - Awe heck my peripheral vision is blocked

SKU# 04-215

A detailed review this is not, but I’ve tried them both and I never liked the Jawbone because of the frame along the bottom which obscures your peripheral vision; not a good thing when you need to check if a rider or a big metal box is coming up your flank.

I’d happily buy another pair of the Radar Path, fantastic glasses but not these Oakley-Doakley things Cavendish is wearing. Oh, and why didn’t he wear them when he won the 2011 worlds?

Back to my original point – check out the photos on your favourite cycling results site and I think you’d be hard pushed to disagree, the Radar Path is making a comeback.
