The Oakley Carbon Plate OX5079 combines the sports culture and lifestyle aspects of the brand in one frame. Oakley are renown for the technology and detailed design that they pack into each product. This goes for the Carbon Plate too. The design and tech featured in this optical frame provide a lightweight and comfortable fit. It performs during the working day right into your active evening.


If you look for comfort above all when buying glasses, these Oakley Carbon Plate glasses will tick that box. The lightness of the frame will be a welcomed relief to the face of those who wear glasses all day. It will also restrict the performance of those who wear them during exercise less than a weightier frame could. The Carbon Plate sheds weight in many ways. Oakley’s ultra-lightweight titanium features as the material of most components on the frame (other than the temples). The strength of the titanium makes the frame durable. But, it is equally lightweight. It is also hypoallergenic too, so is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. The design is a faux semi-rimless design. This is another way that the frame reduces the weight. The temples on this frame are crafted from carbon making the frame feel almost weightless.

The frame is more comfortable than other frames. This is due to the 3-Point fit technology that Oakley add to their design. The patented technology, like its name suggests, ensures the product only touches three points on the head. These points are the bridge area, and the rear of the temples. This reduces pressure on the head, that may arise from some frames, while keeping the lenses perfectly aligned for optimal optics. This will enhance performance while remaining comfortable. The nosepads are air-filled silicon and adjustable. Therefore, this provides even more of a lightweight and personalized fit. The carbon temples are more flexible than acetate or metal. Thus will fit the unique face shape of each wearer to improve the fit further.

Finally, the design of the frame is sophisticated and sporty at the same time. The faux semi-rimless frame creates a contour which oozes sophistication. A thinner part of the frame carries the undercarriage of the lens. This adds more durability to the frame, protecting the lens more. Alternatively, the red and black contrasting designs provide a sporty aspect. The temples have a classic carbon fibre pattern which echoes the body of super cars. The carbon pattern and splashes of red is particularly relevant for the Scuderia Ferrari design. The partnership with Ferrari’s Motor Racing division emulates the lifestyle of current Ferrari drivers like Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen. It reflects the Ferrari lifestyle away from the track.

Overall the frame guarantees an almost weightless feel and a high level of robustness. The frames feature Unobtanium® earstocks which increase their grip even when subjected to perspiration. Therefore this product would be ideal for those who require glasses all day, and those who wear prescription glasses while exercising. Those who have a keen interest in Motor Racing might have a keen interest in the Ferrari model.
