in the 1970s a demented scientist called Jim Jannard tried to find ways to improve motocross gear. His experimenting with materials and forms almost had a directly result, but nobody believed in his ideas. Therefore in 1975 he began for himself. He started the brand Oakley- named after his dog- with a starting capital of 300 dollar and the simple idea to create products that worked better and were better looking than the things that were available at that time. In the laboratory in his garage he developed a engine handle with a unique pattern and a form that is perfectly suited to the hand of the rider. Professional drivers immediately were enthusiastic about the design and the material, that even delivered more grip as it came into contact with sweat. "Everything in the world can and will be improved", was Jims firm belief. "The only question is when and by who." Jim did his best to break the conventional thinking patterns. Although his own company had a hard time, his next innovation was already on its way; the Oakley O Frame goggle, the first goggle with a perfectly cylindrical lens, would be the standard in the motocross sport for the next 17 years. Jims next step was the inventing of sunglasses and making them suitable for top-level sport. A few people believed that this was possible, and the established brands didnt at all. Jim created the Oakley Eyes Hades, sunglasses
which triggered a eyewear evolution; sunglasses would slowly becoming a regular accessory to an indispensable part of the equipment of sportsmen. Also in the years that followed, Oakley never stopped with the improvement of products and the search for unconventional solutions. Decades of innovation yielded many new technologies and products to which often balancing on the borders of art and science. The fact that Oakley has more than 600 worldwide patents on his name actually says enough. Today the brand of Jim Jannard still makes products that are better than those of the competition, and provides the solutions for people who do not want to make concessions to their performance.
Oakley Frog Skins
Although Oakley has become known with performance-oriented single-lens sunglasses like the Eyes Hades and razor blades, the first dual-lens sunglasses of Oakley, the frog skins, had an equally large breakthrough. The glasses were introduced in the early eighties, the time that Reagan sat in the White House, Terminator broke cinema records and Run DMC scored hit after hit. Where the Eyes Hades and razor blade especially were popular under cyclists and athletes, the frog skins got well known in a very different group. Surfers, pop stars and other cool people went with the glasses, and the glasses grew into an icon of the pop culture. Even today the Frog Skins is still popular without prejudice. Thats because the glasses have a cool retro style, but also have a great view and unprecedented durability.
