This unique eyewear design is crafted from durable, lightweight O Matter® frame material with the styling of hard-edge lines. Ultraviolet light-stopping Plutonite® lenses open peripheral view with an 8.75 base lens curvature and the clarity of XYZ Optics®, one of the patented innovations of Oakley’s proprietary High Definition Optics® (HDO®). The Ducati logo is laser etched near the bottom edge of the left lens. Its available right here.
