Oakley, the global performance eyewear brand, is proud to be an official supplier of Sky Pro Cycling.
With over three decades of heritage and innovation in elite cycling, Oakley is well placed to supply the Team Sky riders and staff with cutting edge, custom-made performance and lifestyle eyewear for the 2013 season.
Renowned and relied on for their optical superiority and patented lens technologies, known as High Definition Optics® (HDO®), Oakley also defies convention through aggressive product design, from Greg LeMond's iconic Eyeshade to the more recent ground breaking Radarlock. Team Sky will benefit from this expertise and receive the latest Oakley Racing Jacket® and Radarlock® performance glasses in custom team colours.
Oakley Sports Marketing Manager, Scott McMorris said: "Team Sky is a very exciting project to be involved with. Since the birth of the team in 2010 they have gone onto race domination covering the three major Grand Tours, one-day Classics and national road races covering Europe.
“2012 was an unbelievable year for the team and we are really excited to be working closely with this elite team and helping them to achieve their goals by supplying performance optics that address their specific expectations and needs."
Team Principal Dave Brailsford said: "Oakley is a market leader and collaborating with them means our riders and staff will have the best available technology at their disposal in any type of condition on the roads."
