Oakley Jawbreaker Sunglasses Matt Black Prism Road - £89.99 with code @ Chain Reaction Cycles

Found 23rd AprEdited by:"Pyongyang"
RRP £174.99

Excellent shades for cycling. List price is £99.99 but add the code CLEAR2018 to bring the price down by a tenner.

EDIT: Someone messaged me to say I should tell you where I got this deal from. No offence, but I was browsing the web site as I am looking for some parts for my new road bike. Not that I need to justify myself to anyone but felt I should add this.

I nearly bought a pair of Jawbreakers yesterday but ended up getting BTwin Ride 900's from Decathlon which have excellent reviews across the board.

Hope that clears things up.

No worries. As I said in the post, I almost got these myself but the Decathlon Cycling 900's have savage reviews and are £40 with multiple lenses. If the Jawbreaker Photochromic's were £89.99 I'd have swooped on them.

Enjoy 'em if you buy 'em!
I prefer the face scraper to the jaw breaker, much more aggressive styling.

£90 for a pair of sunglasses that I will lose within, at best, a month? I think I'll stick to the Tesco petrol stations £4.99p. Less of a hit on my losses

Horses for courses , if you actually want uv protection, and a body and lens shape that is designed for sports you will buy these. If you walk to the pub with your mates the tesco ones will do to darken the tone of the sun down.
Looks good ,but I think my ten minute daily cycle may be better suited to a £1.99 pair from aldi ,this time
Jesus Christ! £89.99 for those, that’s a hell of a lot of money for just glasses.

I've read the photochromatics don't go dark enough when it's really sunny anyway tbf, gonna look at the decathlon ones myself
I guess these are designed so you cannot see the frame and around the lens? I really need a pair like that.

Same place myself - the BTWIN ones look great for 1/3 price ... plus I won't lose the plot when they inevitably get dropped
Foackleys worth a look, reviews on youtube. I haver tried both and couldnt tell the difference and I think in one of the reviews got them expertly tested and they were fine.

They dont really go dark but its a great lense for morning/evening rides with changing conditions.
I was bought some jawbreakers and have been astonished how good they actually are, id have never paid that for glasses but if something was to happen to mine I would definitely replace them.
I've lost my £4 glasses, I'm worried I'd lose these too

If it's any use, the Decathlon Roadr Cycling 900's arrived today. They are absolutely brilliant. Worth way more than the £30-£35 they are asking for them.

Lenses are super easy to swap out, although it does all feel a bit fragile while doing it. The yellow lens is especially good.

Absolutely recommend these if you don't want to splash out on the Oakley's. Here's a link:

Those are the £35 ones I got. The black, blue and red look excellent, just like the photo. Hope it helps!
One of the most horrific looking pair of sunglasses I've ever seen. No wonder they're on offer.

I had the Decathlon 900's for last year's cycling and they're great for the money.

But this year I got the Jawbreakers with a set of photochromic lenses. All I can say is wow! The optic quality and contrast is so much better. Plus you see virtually no frame in your peripheral vision.

Yes they are a lot of money, but if you do a lot of cycling and you can afford it, the Jawbreakers are excellent!
Yeah, Oakley PRIZM rocks.

I love PRIZM trail having tried it a few times - will get some active Oakleys (Mainlink and Crosslink) in PRIZM trail and road.

Currently use some PRIZM saphire turbines - another active pair. Even in fairly low light they still work fine - despite blocking a fair amount of light - as they really enhance contrast. PRIZM road has a much higher transmission and even more contrast, and PRIZM yet more still.

So you could comfortably use PRIZM trail when cloudy and at dawn and dusk I'd say. And PRIZM road likely not far off.

If I get a prescription pair one day (you're looking at around £300 so that's why I haven't yet!), I'll likely get insurance for them.

I don't think it'd be expensive and perhaps would not cost anything extra to add these to your insurance.

That takes some of the fear away. But yeah, if you get Oakleys you tend to baby them.

For cycling specific I'd probably get the EV Zero over these.

So lightweight and no frame.

If you want something more like these - so more robust than the EV Zero and able to change lenses, Radarlock or Radar EV are better too I think.
These are still very expensive for what they are. Needing a prescription I've always gone for UVEX safety or sports glasses. They're a German manufacturer that focussed on industrial quality safety eyewear. They are a bit more of a basic design but I think they look more stylish for it. These are a bit over the top for my personal taste.
Anyone able to comment on prism road lenses vs the polarized lenses and their pros and cons and difference?
Thanks if so got to make up my mind by tonight otherwise it likely cost me more as options have increased in price.
Picked up a set of the Mark Cavendish Prizm Jawbreakers and they seem ok. Won't get chance to use them for a couple of weeks, but they certainly look pretty cool. Thanks OP!
