MONTEFRIO is the 4th in Oakley's stretch line of sunglasses

Oakley launches Montefrio Sunglasses
Fashion accessories maker Oakley announced the release of MONTEFRIO, the latest in the company's exclusive Stretch line of sunglasses. The new eyewear was co-designed with Shaun White, a four-time, gold medal X Games snowboard champion and accomplished professional skateboarder.

"They innovate by listening to the pros. Their input is essential to advancing performance technology," said Oakley President Colin Baden.

"Those who challenge the limits of surf, skate, snow and MX are the ones who define the youth culture of action sports. That's why we chose to work with Shaun White, one of the most respected competitors in snowboarding and skateboarding, to develop MONTEFRIO."

"I came to the company with some ideas and while most companies would have pushed back saying, 'Yeah, thanks... they will get back to you,' Oakley didn't," said Shaun White. "They wanted to get inside my head and know all my thoughts, not just the performance angle. I wanted these glasses to be as much style as tech and they nailed the design."

The new MONTEFRIO sunglasses are made of stress-resistant O Matter, a durable and lightweight synthetic material. The hybrid hinge design utilizes Oakley's C-5 alloy to further minimize weight blending seamlessly with design cues and features patented XYZ Optics, a technology that maximizes visual clarity at all conceivable angles of vision.

Oakley's 'three point fit' retains the lenses in precise optical alignment while optimizing comfort by ensuring the frame makes contact with the wearer only at the bridge of the nose and the temples. The Plutonite lenses filter out 100% of all UV light and six-base curvature extends peripheral vision while improving side protection against sun and wind.
