TIGHTROPE walks the line between performance and polish and in the process gives you the best of both worlds.
Oakley created TIGHTROPE™ for the kind of active lifestyle that follows the road only far enough to find its own path. Think of this frame as a sport inspiration that got a taste of the street. It takes five metal compounds to achieve the low weight and high durability of Oakley's C-5™ alloy, a breakthrough that turns the temples and bridge into works of art. The comfortably secure fit takes advantage of two innovations: UNOBTAINIUM® stem sleeves that increase grip with perspiration, and the geometry of a Three-Point Fit that eliminates unbalanced pressure points common with ordinary frames that hook your ears. The lenses combine 8.75 base curvature with patented XYZ OPTICS® for clarity that extends to a wide peripheral view. Performance and protection meet ANSI Z87.1 optical and basic impact standards, and UV filtering is 100% with our pure PLUTONITE® lens material.
