Precriptions " insert" for my Oakley Jawbreaker. Oakley doen't make them for the Jawbreaker - but bought the "insert" last year in China on a market with some fake stuff. went to the optician and they made me some ultra thin glasses - fit is almost perfect.

Technically I did not buy this today, but 3 months ago. It was stuck in customs and then Brazilian mail “lost” it for a few weeks. This is to replace my broken Tune Mig 70.

They don't make inserts, but they make custom "glass".

Was about 900$ CAD.

Not the best looking lenses but they work really well.

+1 for the Oakley prescription glasses!
Top quality (but expensive)

I know - I have a Split jacket with original prescription glasses - it works perfect. But now with 3 different eye meassures in the last 2 years ( and it's just - 0.25 extra or so or just a little bit off with cilinder ) it will be very expensive. This option just was $ 40,- with my own opticien and did my first ride with it 2 days ago.

Thats what I wrote ... Oakley doesn't make them for the Jawbreaker... but the insert works very good. Will update after a few more rides, and how it is compares to my Oakley Split Jacket with precriptions.

Just wanted to let you know! I used inserts for shooting glasses and could never get over how close they felt to my eyes, wish a 40$ option would work for me.

the insert behind the shield looks like a good solution, I would have considered that back when I was debating getting contacts

Bang Bang I shot you down.

Oh I hate pulling the trigger.

New, never ridden, apparently built in London and from the bay.

Knocking on the wood... but there finally seems to be a nice helmet for non round heads... Sweet Protection, Falconer Aero. When usually I need to go L or XL because my head is much longer than wider (resulting in a mushroom look, as sides are way off from head), then with Falcon I went for M and it fits snug and perfect. 271g without aero cover, 313g with covers.
