If you’ve been following the cyclocross scene this year, you’ve undoubtedly noticed these custom Oakley RadarLocks on Rapha-Focus team riders Gabby Day, Zach McDonald, Jeremy Powers, Julie Krasniak and Chris Jones. The RadarLock first debuted earlier this spring as the latest member of Oakley’s Switchlock lineup. Switchlock allows users to change their lenses quickly, but more importantly prevents any accidental bending of the lens which could distort the optics of the lens. These custom Oakley RadarLocks have strictly been team issued only, until today.
Today, the Rapha-Focus team announced that Oakley were kind enough to send them a few extra pairs for the team to auction off to help raise funds in support of the team. Starting on November 27, 2012 and running until Friday December 1st, a silent auction will be held everyday from 6AM PST until 11:59PM PST, where each day the two highest bidders will secure a pair of the custom RadarLocks. Every winner will also receive a set of team rider cards autographed by Gabby Day, Zach McDonald, Jeremy Powers, Julie Krasniak and Chris Jones.
If the RadarLocks aren’t your cup of tea, Rapha-Focus also have their stylish off the bike Frogskins up for auction as well. They’ll be auctioning the Frogskins in the same format the following week from Tuesday December 4th – Friday December 7th.
If that wasn’t enough, Rapha will be holding one last chance auction on Tuesday December 11th for the last two remaining sets of glasses, one RadarLock and one Frogskin.
