The craft is 90 feet at the waterline and rises higher than a 17-story building. Its mast can withstand compression comparable to 50 SUVs stacked on an area the size of a tennis ball, and when its 1,100 square meter gennaker catches the wind, the Alinghi team will need clockwork precision to tame the carbon composite leviathan and duel over sun sliced waves.
No other trophy in international sport has a heritage as old as the America’s Cup. Oakley has rendered special edition sunglasses to honor the world-renowned Alinghi team, defender of the 33rd regatta. Styled with unique highlights and colors, these designs feature the unsurpassed glare protection and optical superiority of Oakley HDPolarized lenses. The Alinghi crew has depended on our polarized optics for years, and now you can show your support for the team and experience the same premium performance and protection when the sun tacks off the water and refuses to give leeway. Each sunglass comes with a matching MICROCLEAR bag to stow the frame, and the material is perfect for keeping the lenses clean.
Oakley TEN is the classic Oakley look, amped with volume and rigged with tech. You’ll have sculpturally integrated hinges with dual cam action, a comfortable Three-Point Fit, and the optical performance you need for a life with momentum.
Oakley TEN uses XYZ OPTICS (a benefit of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS (HDO)) to keep your vision razor sharp at every angle of view, even with 8.75 base lens curvature. That’s what TEN offers, and it means you’ll have a wide peripheral view with extra coverage to block annoying things like side glare, wind, and the type of impact that can ruin your outlook. Even with all that curvature, you’ll have optical precision that meets ANSI Z87.1 standards, and same goes for impact protection because the comfortably lightweight O MATTER frame is beyond durable.
All our sunglass lenses are made of pure PLUTONITE to block every ray of UV, and the lens curvature of TEN helps prevent light from sneaking around the sides. If you want optimal performance, go with Oakley HDPolarized lenses. They block 99% of reflected glare without the haze and visual distortion that comes with polarized lenses made with inferior methods. Choose IRIDIUM lens coating to balance light transmission. You can also get TEN with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses, and you can tailor them with a wide range of options.
