An original vision of Oakley’s founder, PIT BOSS was four years in the making. State-of-the-art technology wasn’t the issue. Oakley had already become a world leader in optical innovation, and from the first inception of this sunglass, everyone knew it would be a show case for the very best that science could offer. For the founding father of Oakley, it was a matter of art and style, and it became a relentless pursuit of perfection. PIT BOSS had to be absolutely unique, completely original, and as outspoken and assertive as those who earn the right to wear it. Some of the most talented designers in the industry gave a chunk of their lives to attaining that vision. After years of tireless work, they nailed it.
The technology of PIT BOSS is just as aggressive as the styling. It matches our stress-resistant OMATTER® frame material with ultra-lightweight titanium plates, forged at searing temperatures and chiseled by Computer Numeric Controlled machinery with a precision of 0.002 inches. That’s just one five-hundredth of an inch, and it gives you an idea of the craftsmanship behind the creation. For high-velocity impact protection, we used hexalobular bolts to secure the plates with authority. Our Three-Point Fit maintains comfort all day while holding the lenses in precise optical alignment, and the lenses themselves are a thing of technical beauty.
Every frame comes with premium Oakley HDPOLARIZED lenses that filter out 99% of glare without the visual haze and optical distortion that comes with ordinary polarized lenses. The back of each lens has the added protection and glare reduction of anti-reflective (AR) coating, and the front is augmented with IRIDIUM® coating to further reduce glare while precisely balancing light transmission. On top of all that, we added Oakley HYDROPHOBIC™/OLEOPHOBIC technology, a permanent coating that repels dust while maintaining a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils, fingerprints, lotions and sunscreens. It even repels water to prevent streaks and sheens from corrupting your point of view.
