Velonews’ Logan VonBokel got his hands on some of Mark Carvendish’s new Oakley’s Jawbreakers and they look epic. A nice reworking of the original Oakley Eyeshades with a tech upgrade from the future.

“Sunglasses,” doesn’t seem do the Jawbreaker design justice. The sheer size and its features make “sport shield,” a more apt descriptor. So let’s discuss the size of the Jawbreakers. They’re some of the largest, if not the largest, sunglasses I’ve tested. Something everyone I rode with also noted. A couple of friends remarked that the Jawbreakers look like something a baseball player from the 1990s might wear.

Or, maybe, a cyclist from the 2020s. . . can’t wait to try these bombastic face covers out. The bigger the better! The new Jawbreakers go on sale April 15, 2015 and will retail for $200.
