There is only week left in Le Tour, but new goods are still flooding our doorstep. From the Peloton Paddock this week is a Tour de France inspired watch from the official timekeepers of the race, Tissot, a teaser video from Sidi displaying a new closure system and a limited edition Rio inspired Olympic collection from Oakley.
Just in time for the 2016 Rio Olympics, Oakley launched a special edition Green Fade eyewear collection last Friday. This collection combines today’s technology (Prizm lenses) with a style and color throwback to the 1980s – all lenses are fine tuned for different sport environments. Available in aggressive racing frames such as the Jawbreaker as well as the casual classic Frogskins, look for Olympians across a multitude of disciplines to be sporting these shades as they pursue gold medal dreams come August.
$180-230 depending on frame: oakley.com
