Oakley Windjacket 2.0 sunglasses review

Oakley’s Wind Jacket 2.0 sunnies are not for the faint of heart; they are big and bright but are a solid set of cycling shades.

They are technically positioned in the brand’s lineup as a ‘goggle’, and with the massive coverage, removable triple layer face foam and even an optional strap this description is apt, but I’d still classify them as sunglasses.

From the top of the frame to the bottom measures 80mm, that’s nearly double the 53mm of the Jawbreaker and similarly-sized POC DO Blade. This additional size did cause the top of the frame to bump on some lower slung helmets, like the Scott Centric Plus, POC Octal and the new Bontrager Velocis, however there was no such issue with the Met Strale.

That said, with such a large lens the frame sits well outside your field of view, even in full aero TT position.

At their widest point, the Wind Jacket 2.0’s measure 150mm, with the lower section of the lens slightly scalloped to make a bit of room for your cheekbones.
