Oakley used to have ‘demo’ versions in shops that had been fired at with an air rifle, to demonstrate that the lenses were resistant to small projectiles i.e. small stones hitting them; useful for keen TT cyclists etc. Not sure how the Mountain Warehouse ones fare in comparison.
Free returns too! Because Oakley can really not suit a person!!!
I got these as a gift from work, I’ve worn them once and didn’t find them that great. They feel bulky. A lot of people liked them though.

Cheap glasses are no good if they have no UV protection. Why risk your most precious asset buy saying a few bucks
Note. The ones they ship arent they ones in the above pic. Theyre the steel frame with a variation of a red lens. This is confirmed in the q&a and when you add to basket
The description states "Prizm Road" lens, and that is not the black lens in the photo. The Prizm lens is cycling-specific, and while it is just about the very best cycling lens money can buy it is a contrast lens and isn't that suitable for regular everyday use. Good price though.

Can buy high UV rates glasses for a fraction of the cost.
These are good glasses. I have the XLJ version,( slightly different shaped lenses), and are pretty good for cycling and anything sporty.

I use safety glasses for couple of quid! And I am sure they comply with some safety standards
The fact that you can buy sunglasses for a few quid that might be safe is missing the point - Oakley's business is largely in optical performance for specific (sports) purposes like cycling/skiing/golf under different light conditions. You can ride in £4 glasses from Mountain Warehouse or anywhere else, but they honestly won't do anything like the job that an Oakley Prizm Road lens does. It's a sports-specific lens and £84 is a good price for it.

There’s always a first, maybe they can improve their aim. Also kind of missing the point but never mind.

I’ve often done the same, although usually with clear ones as I find the tinted safety glasses do nothing to reduce glare. Also the bridge is often offset, which lets air in at speed.
