Just when you thought goggles couldn’t get more technologically advanced— snap- on lenses and integrated fans, anyone?!— Oakley went ahead and elevated the entire ‘smart optics’ game with the recent release of their Oakley Airwave 1.5 goggle.

Oakley decided to take every feature that a basic smart phone offers and cram it into a goggle, gifting you with a built-in display screen on the lower right hand corner that provides crisp, widescreen graphics, while also utilizing a prism technology to capture speed, vertical drop, navigation, and much more with a remote control .

Once all your data and stats are recorded, you have the option to share it right away on Facebook via Bluetooth, compatible with IPhones and Androids. Another bonus of the Airwave is the ability for riders to view and answer incoming texts and phonecalls through the lens itself, meaning no more fishing around for your phone while trying to avoid a serious case of frost-bite. And on those days when listening to your tunes on shuffle doesn’t suffice, take charge of the tunes while maxing out on air time with the Airwave’s Jump Analytic data.

Topping off an already impressive product, we can’t forget to mention the Airwave’s quick changing lens technology. Oakley provides a hassle-free lens swapping method, as their Switchlock technology only requires the simple lift of a latch to unhinge the lens’ lock — promptly allowing you to take fully advantage of the wide variety of lenses offered to optimize your vision is all conditions.
