Oakley has questioned the limits of technology again and again, which has produced more than 575 patents worldwide. They constantly strive to make each and every product better. Oakley has a state-of-the-art research and production facility. The facility utilizes the virtual world of CAD/CAM engineering. Each idea starts off as a virtual prototype, similar to the virtual pets some children carry around in their pockets. The prototype is tested using spectropho-tometers, impact accelerators, and environmental simulation chambers. If the new product can withstand extensive testing, then, and only then, is it ready for testing on actual people. Oakley uses some of the world’s largest athletes to test their products. After all, is anyone better equipped to test the endurance of a product more than a professional athlete who pushes extraordinary limits on a daily basis?

Motocross is one of the sports that relies on the Oakley goggle technology. The 3-D goggle design provides a precise fit. The goggles are designed to perfectly conform to your face. Ram-air surge ports allow for fog-cutting air flow which is reinforced with a F3 anti-fog coating. Oakley lenses are designed to maximize peripheral and downward vision. This is important in the motocross world since drivers must rely on and trust their goggles. Drivers need and have to have goggles that do not impair their vision.
