Hi guys,

I just got my custom Oakley Radar.
The colors are not really what the generated picture on Oakley site looked.
Metallic red is totally different from what I thought.

You can see them here: http://www.rouesartisanales.com/article-7041446.html

Here is a picture to let you see what I mean.

Does some of you already experienced this?

Thanks.
Adrien.

IMO the frame's color isn't that far off but the ear stocks are terribly misrepresented.

Oakley's design style has gone too far off on the fringe for me... This is just too far a departure from the M Frames, which I got sick of 3 years ago.

I far prefer specialized optics these days...

I still like my M-Frame Pro's that I've had since '98. Stylewise I did get tired of them years ago but in terms of functionality I don't know how you can beat 'em.

My wife thinks I look like a tool when I wear them out of uniform (ie no bike gear on). I agreed with that so I bought some Half Jackets. I look good in teh Half Jackets but i don't like how fat the frames are for riding. When I wear my M-Frames I forget that I even have them on. That's not the case with the Half Jackets. And the new style Flak Jackets and Radars feature fatter frames than these.

The colours look completely different. However, I would never make a judgement based on an online colour, only from printed.

After seeing a few crashes this summer in which the sharp bottom edge of these types of glasses carved into rider's faces, I've switched to more conventional sunglasses.

+1 My Spec Arc (small) is in every way superior to my Oakley Juliet. Love the transistion glasses, they are super lightweight and well designed (no frame/edges visible when riding in aero position).

At first I was thinking it was going to turn out to be a monitor/LCD not having been calibrated. However, that's not even close!

This is indeed far from the color of the programm.

This is actually a very dark red. From the programm it looks flashy and quite "mat".

:(

Those are nice sunglasses anyway.

I would not accept this outcome as well. When you spend so many buck$ on sunglasses, you should at least get something close to the picture.

This is just the standaard red color, i dont think you get custom colors.

It's always smarter to get to a shop and look at the frame's and they can also order custum (thats what me was told back her in Belgium).

Like the glasses a lot but there to wide on my face, so i stiked to my m-frame.
