About Fox Racing Sunglasses & Eyewear

Fox’s commitment to produce only the finest products available is transcended into our Eyewear collection. We teamed up with Oakley, a world leader in Eyewear technology to ensure that we offer only the finest in quality, performance, and design.

Fox Racing Lens Technology


How does one choose their lens? When light passes through a sunglass lens, some wavelengths are reflected by the surface and others are absorbed by the lens material. The light that actually reaches your eye is a measure of the lens transmission level. With our wide range of optional lens hues, you can choose to have as little as 10% of available light reach your eye, or as much as 44%.

Plutonite® Lens Material

High Velocity Tests

Lightweight Plutonite lens material offers superior comfort, clarity and protection against impact and ultraviolet radiation. Maintaining the proven safety characteristics of Oakley eyewear, the impact-resistant material blocks 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light. Plutonite is the only lens material able to achieve the performance standards required by the digital design and production technologies utilized by Oakley.


Impact Protection

High-Mass Impact Tests

Fox Sunglasses lens materials and frame geometries of Fox eyewear provide unsurpassed protection against high-velocity and high-mass impact. For high-velocity impact testing, a quarter-inch steel shot is blasted from a pneumatic cannon at 102 mph. The high-mass impact test uses a metal spike (more than a pound of weight) dropped from over four feet. The unique combination of wrapped, raked-back lens geometries and durable Plutonite lens material allows our eyewear to exceed the standards of these impact tests, established by the American National Standards Institute.


UV Protection

Harmful UC-A, UV-B, UV-C, and Blue Light

Fox Sunglasses provide unbeatable protection against the damaging rays of ultraviolet radiation. Oakley’s Plutonite lens material inherently blocks 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light. The protection is formulated into the lens material, as opposed to a thin surface film that can become scratched, leaving dilated pupils exposed to ultraviolet leaks. Shielding has nothing to do with the darkness or colour of the lens, so even clear lenses provide full protection. The wrapped, raked-back architecture of our eyewear provides further protection by blocking UV from the periphery.

Iridium® Lens Coatings

Visible Light

Oakley Iridium lens coatings allow the wearer to tune transmission for any light condition. Superheated metallic oxides are fused to the lens at a molecular level, permanently bonding to create a uniform filtering layer that optimizes contrast and minimizes glare. Tuned to transmit from 9-92 percent of available light, the coatings are specifically formulated for optimal balance between reflection, transmission and absorption depending on the targeted environment for usage.


Oakley’s polarization technology surpasses industry standards for clarity, performance and durability. Common techniques of incorporating polarization films into lenses by lamination (using adhesive to sandwich the film between lens layers) and drop forming (sandwiching then heating and pressing over contoured forms) can cause haziness and optical distortion. Oakley uses an injection-moulding process to infuse the lens material around the filter. This liquid fusion creates bonding at the molecular level, allowing the filter to achieve the highest possible level of performance.
