Lance Armstrong is more than a living legend of the Tour de France. He is a symbol of hope. His LIVESTRONG Foundation is making a difference in the lives of millions of people living with cancer, and Oakley is honored to help support its efforts. With each sale of this special edition sunglass, $20 will be provided to the foundation. This is your opportunity to help support a noble cause and wear a symbol of inspiration and empowerment.
Oakley SCALPEL® is a rare breed that goes from sport to street with style to spare, and we rendered this special edition with the colors of the LIVESTRONG Foundation. These sunglasses come with all the performance and clarity you need, along with superior impact protection and dawn-to-dusk comfort. We laser engraved “LIVESTRONG” on one of the Black IRIDIUM® lenses, and the lens tint will help you maintain color recognition on bright, sunny days. Choose Scalpel for a slice of style that’s a cut above the best, and choose this edition to show your support for a noble cause.
Oakley SCALPEL® combines the best of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® (HDO®) with a look that goes from street to sport, and it offers a level of performance as aggressive as its styling.
This is sculpture mixed with science, and there’s a reason behind every curve. The side-to-side contour of a lens can make or break peripheral vision. SCALPEL has a full 8.75 base curvature to open your range of view. That much of a contour leads to optical distortion in ordinary sunglasses but SCALPEL is engineered with XYZ OPTICS® to maintain critical clarity along the entire lens curve. You’ll have added protection against sun, wind and side impact. As a matter of fact, this design meets ANSI Z87.1 basic impact standards, and the pure PLUTONITE® lenses filter out 100% of all UV. The optics also meet every ANSI Z87.1 standard for visual performance. So if you hit the links or just crash a beach volleyball game, SCALPEL will give you all the razor-sharp clarity you need.
The smooth sculptural contours are made of durable, lightweight O MATTER® frame material, and we gave the stem sleeves special attention. Note how they wrap the ends and continue along the underside. They’re made of UNOBTAINIUM®, a material that increases grip with sweat, and they’re part of a Three-Point Fit that maintains comfort all day while holding the lenses in precise optical alignment.
The only thing left to think about is what options you want. Oakley HDPolarized lenses block the blinding rays of glare that are magnified by flat surfaces. Our polarization technology eliminates the haze and optical distortion that plagues ordinary polarized lenses. You can also get SCALPEL with IRIDIUM® lens coating that further reduces glare while precisely balancing light transmission. And if you weren’t born with perfect eyes, you can get Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses (+2.00 to -4.00 combined power).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous these are very cool. been looking at scalpels for a while now, but as soon as the livestrong edition came out i had to get them. large(ish) lenses, with swoopy styling on the arms.unobtainium rubber on the lower arms for extra grip. if you fancy something different to the usual oakley styles get these.
