Oakley has a new item for mountain biking for 2011, which is the Factory glove. The minimalist slip-on design makes the glove look too weak for hard trail riding and its soft and thin material is something expected from a lightweight driving glove. However, the glove is surprisingly durable.

Sufficient airflow is provided by the lightweight fabric of the Factory. Through this, the hands of the rider are kept cool and free from dank sweat. With the thin material, riders can handle the bars with a nice feel. One amazing feature of the glove is a soft terry cloth nose-wipe on the thumb.

Durable, comfortable, and unbelievably functional, the 2011 Oakley Factory Glove is ideal for mountain biking and XC races. It comes in six color options with Wade Simmons and Brian Lopes signature editions. It is incredibly affordable as well.

Oakley Chrome BMX Arrays Sunglasses

oakley chrome bmx arrays   Oakley Chrome BMX Arrays SunglassesThis product was inspired by the decades of Oakley BMX frames back in the late 70′s and early 80′s. The latest design will surely, not only give you the ultimate rider look, but will definitely catch everyone else’s attention as well.

This new edition of Array is made of both a Jawbone and Radar frame. Each is paired with 3 matching lenses and an earsock to match the color of anodized parts back then which is also starting to come back as the latest fad.

In addition to this hip design, Oakley added the matte black color for the shade’s frame jaw to match those BMX tires nicely. The Oakley BMX Array comes in a custom Microclear storage bag which is also good for polishing the lenses and a case to store them in.

And when I said Array, it means this also comes with 3 lenses, one frame and multiple…
