For 34 years, Oakley has been producing ski and snowboard goggles with an eye for technology and craftsmanship, but they have actually been a part of the larger action sports industry for much longer. Oakley was founded eight years earlier in 1975, with their first product being the Oakley Grip, a motorcycle grip for motocross bikes. The Oakley Grip made use of a material called Unobtainium, a material patented by Oakley founder Jim Jannard. To this day, Unobtainium is used to make the ear socks and various nose pieces of Oakley glasses.

Oakley soon started to bring an array of different products to the table. Producing elbow and chin guards, number plates and, of course, goggles, Oakley became a recognized brand in the motocross and BMX communities. The release of the O Frame goggles, introduced in 1980, led to a substantial growth in reputation for the company. Soon after, Oakley began to produce their first pair of ski goggles.

Experience with a broad range of sports-focused product choices and time-tested tech gives Oakley a leg up in the ski goggle game. They’ve been a popular choice among skiers and snowboarders for years now, and a continued dedication to sponsoring snow sports athletes and being a major player in the scene has placed them at the precipice of the industry today.

Snow Goggle Tech

Oakley is among the most respected suppliers in the ski goggle industry, especially when it comes to the advanced technology that goes into the goggles they create. From the Unobtainium created by Jannard to the many cutting-edge developments they have trotted out over the years, Oakley prides itself on finding ways to continually make they’re products better.

Prizm Lenses: PRIZM lenses give unpresented controls over light transmissions, resulting in maximized contrast and enhanced visibility. PRIZM lenses are specially engineered to provide greater richness in your visual experience, leading to a better performance. By fine-tuning individual wavelengths of color, PRIZM sharpens visual acuity to reveal nuances that would be missed by the naked eye.

Switchlock: The Switchlock lets you adapt to changing light conditions with the flip of a switch. To make the process of lens changing fast, easy and hassle-free, this technology uses a simple switch mechanism to release the mounted lens so a new one can be locked in instantly, so you never have to have a down moment on the mountain. Change your lens along with the always-fluctuating light and weather conditions for non-stop, all-day action.

3D Cranial Geometry: Oakley’s 3D cranial geometry offers a precise fit ensuring their goggles fit snugly and comfortably.

Dual-Vented Lens: Another Oakley goggle innovation is their ram-air surge ports, which offers great airflow as well as fog cutting properties giving riders a clearer view of the mountain even during high-intensity runs.

Built for Competition

Oakley Goggles are made for use in the most extreme of sporting situations, evidenced by the long list of athletes who rely on Oakley during competition. Oakley sponsors athletes in skiing, snowboarding, cycling, surfing, BMX, baseball and more, encompassing a broad range of athletes who require performance out of their Oakleys.

Oakley snow goggles are immensely popular with ski and snowboard professionals. With a team of sponsored skiers that includes some of the world’s greatest, Oakley is on the forefront of ski performance. A few of the skiers who wear Oakley during competition:

Lindsey Vonn: The most successful American skier in history, Vonn is one of only two women with four World Cup titles. She holds the record for all-time women’s World Cup victories, and is the only American woman to have won a gold in the Olympic downhill event. Beyond that, she is one of the most recognizable faces in the sport, an international celebrity on top of a historic skier.

Mikaela Shiffrin: Shiffrin was still just a teenager when she began turning heads, earning the Rookie of the Year award at the age of 16. She made history at the Sochi Olympics in 2014, where she became the youngest to ever win the gold medal in slalom event. Still in her early twenties, Shiffrin is poised to be one of the racing community’s greatest for the foreseeable future.

Types of Goggles and Lenses

Every skier has different needs and preferences, sometimes multiple within the same day. Oakley lets you choose the options that work best for you by giving an unmatched number of options in the types of goggles you can choose from.

Lenses: Conventional lenses are all about blocking the sun, making you see less. Oakley lenses help you see more — more detail, more depth and more definition. Oakley sells ski goggles with a variety of polarized, mirrored and non-mirrored lenses, and lenses that are both flat and spherical. On top of that, they have dozens of varieties with differing VLT ratings, matching up perfectly with every level of light imaginable.

Frames: You can get your Oakley snow goggles in different sizes, types and with different features. Frame sizes go from small to medium to large, with some coming with the ability to be worn over glasses. You can also select your goggles by the level of ventilation they allow and how easy it is to change lenses on-the-fly.
