oakley RadarLock MarkCavendish Signature
Metallic Green/Jade Iridium Vented & G40 Iridium Vented
Mark Cavendish is the fastest sprinter in the world of cycling and a proud member of the Oakley family. He has earned his place in the cycling history “book of champions” as the fastest man on 2 wheels without a motor on the road who has collected 25 (and counting!) Tour de France stage wins. Leading up to that, Cav was the 2011 world champion on the road as well as won the one of the legendary monuments of the Cycling Classics Milan – San Remo (2009), the longest professional one-day race (a grueling 298 km). Cav’s goal for 2013 is to wear the yellow jersey after stage 1 at the 100th Tour de France.
When asked about his training, Cav replied, “You put yourself on that limit of what your body can take and you have to make yourself stay there. You have to train harder so you can suffer longer.” Cav’s drive and determination make him an honored name in our list of athletes who strive to achieve results Beyond Reason. Oakley created the Mark Cavendish Signature Series RadarLock™ in celebration of Cav’s achievements and his relentless dedication to push the boundaries of cycling.
Oakley’s ultimate sport performance jewel, RadarLock is vital equipment for Cav. The Cavendish Green of this special edition salutes the color that drives him to win; the coveted green “points” jersey of the Tour de France. Oakley Switchlock™ Technology makes lens changing fast and easy, and two lenses are included: Jade Iridium® and G40 Iridium Vented. Both feature our Path® lens shape with venting. Engineered for bright sun, Jade Iridium improves visual contrast and depth perception. The G40 Vented Iridium lens gives you the unrivaled impact protection of Oakley Plutonite® lens material and has a rose tint for improved contrast on cloudy or rainy days on the road.
Cav’s logo is laser etched at the corner of the lens to make this a true collectible. The special edition package includes a custom Microclear™ bag for lens cleaning and frame storage, and a pocket on the bag holds the extra lens. Also added a one-size-fits-all cycling cap from Rapha® made of comfortable polyester with silver printed highlights including Cav’s signature. Cap is limited to one time run to launch signature piece.
