The Racing Jacket is the reincarnation of the classic Jawbone, with a few added perks. These shades crave chaos, and the ear pieces feature a small hole for removable retainer strap. Just in case you want to customize your color combinations, the Oakley "O" icons are now interchangeable, with the help of a paperclip. Count on the carry-over of Switchlock technology, which uses a quick-release lower jaw that opens for fast, easy lens replacement, then closes to lock the lens securely in place.

I also purchased a clear set of lenses for night and morning rides, so I cycle through 3 variations (clear, low-light, and bright sun). They come with a very sturdy case and bag, clean up easily after a race, and are durable so far. They fit upside down in my helmet vents perfectly, which always is a plus. They never fog at speed, and are only an issue on a very hot day at a stop light - which happens to all sunglasses I have used. Tons of color options too - mine match my team kit.
