Sunglasses, like handlebar shape, bibs and shoes are generally a matter of personal preference. With the EVZero, Oakley hopes to make you see the light with its newest minimalist design.
Coming in at a scant 23 grams on the Cyclocross Magazine scale, Oakley says that the EVZero is the company’s lightest frame. Although, the use of the word frame may be a misnoamer as the majority of the design is the lens shield.
The test pair we received offered a pretty versatile tint with great clarity. Our test pair was also the larger of the EVZero options, the Range, while a slightly smaller EVZero Path is also available. Both the EVZero Range and Path share the minimalitst design and gossamer weight as well as Oakley’s Prizm lens technology designed to enhance vision detail.
We’ve been using the EVZero Range regularly, since the Lost & Found gravel race. With the Range’s larger lens, those with high cheek bones may find some contact with the lens. Overall the EVZero Range has become a favorite shade for variable light conditions and long days in the saddle.
The EVZero comes in the aforementioned two lens shield shapes and a bevy of colors, true to Oakley’s style. Stay tuned for a full review.
