Fuel Cell, Gascan, Batwolf, and more. High-wrap design has long been part of Oakley®’s heritage. These models have cemented themselves as the best-selling Oakley sunglasses. Gascan has proven to be one of the best military sunglasses ever. While they have their place in history, there is always room for one more. To quote Oakley’s founder, Jim Jannard, “Everything can and will be made better.”
Introducing: Heliostat. Heliostat spotlights elevated design features for the modern-day, including a sleeker silhouette made of O Matter™ frame material. A 3-point fit with internal Unobtainium® ear socks and molded-in nose pads make Heliostat a classic eyewear choice with contemporary restyling.
Field of view and protection go hand in hand. High-wrap design has long been part of Oakley’s DNA to harness these two elements of performance. The high-wrap design provides the user with a wide and unobstructed field of view to maximize visibility. The design also ensures maximum protection from the elements. This is a big consideration for sports performance, military scenarios, and the outdoors.
Let’s be honest, sometimes sunglasses are not enough to shield your eyes from glare. We made Heliostat compatible with hats for this very reason. Thin, yet rigid, ear stems provide seamless integration with a hat. Fitting softly over the ear and right underneath the hat fold. No hat? Not to worry. The frame retention is strong enough to support all-day wear with or without a hat.
Oakley Prizm™ Lens Technology is the first of its kind and designed to accentuate colors and maximize contrast. In short, it offers a clearer and more vibrant viewing experience. Heliostat is offered in a wide variety of Prizm colors to include Prizm Black Polarized, Prizm Tungsten, Prizm Deep Water Polarized, and more.
What’s better than having a variety of options to choose from? Well, creating your own option. Heliostat will soon be offered on Oakley Custom. Select your own frame color, lens color, icon, and microbag. Our easy user interface allows you to create your own masterpiece in minutes. If Heliostat isn’t the only model you want, we have dozens more to choose.
Several new Heliostat offerings will be available this Fall. First, Heliostat will be available in our USA Flag Collection. Choose between the red, white, and blue, or tonal flag options. Next, on Veterans Day, Oakley Standard Issue will release a one-of-a-kind Heliostat dedicated to our Nation’s heroes. The USA Veterans Day Collection. Stay tuned.
