2018 Buyer's Guide

Oakley EV Zero Stride

The Draw: Unobstructed View

For triathletes, nothing beats a frameless lens. Drop your head to achieve peak aero on the bike, and enjoy an unobstructed view of the road ahead. Oakley says these specs are sized for a comfy fit on small to medium faces, but even our big- faced tester loved them for their lightweight, barely-there feel, non-slip nose grip (even when coated with sweat while running), and crystal-clear view. The look is a modern take on the retro stylings of the original ‘80s Eyeshades, with a wider lens for a ski-goggley vibe, sans bulk. It’d take some daring to wear them casually, but for comfort, vision, and protection while training and racing, these Oakleys can’t be beat. (P.S. They don’t feel flimsy, despite the no-frame design.)

$163; 9 lens/frame combinations
