  • The Jawbone offers a lot of customization options, including the color of the jaw's thru-bolt.
  • The new Split Jacket is basically a smaller version of the Jawbone, to accomodate smaller face sizes.
  • The Radar was Oakley's attempt to supplant the ubiquitous M-Frame, and has enjoyed tremendous success in that effort.
  • The Radar XL is our favorite tri frame. It's got the most coverage above the eye, making it the easiest frame to use when tucked in an aggressive aero position.
  • The Radar XL looks a little larger than what you're probably used to with the standard frame, so it might not be your first choice for casual wear.
  • This Antifreeze Green and Positive Red combo reminds us of the Ninja Turtles.
  • The Jawbone offers more above-eye coverage than the standard Radar, but less than the Radar XL.
  • The Jawbone introduced some thoughtful ear stem design - it's shorter, to minimize possible interference by your helmet.
  • The standard Radar is a very useful and versatile frame, and no rim on the bottom of the lens means it's easier to look behind you to check for traffic while riding.
  • Both the standard and XL versions of the Radar have long arms, which can get in the way of some aero lids.  You'd be best to take your helmet to the store when trying on these frames.
  • The new Split Jacket is like a mini Jawbone.
  • The Split Jacket maintains the short arms of the Jawbone, getting it out of the way of aero lids or helmet straps.
