Facelift: Oakley Jupiter Squared

The current trend in eyewear design is leaning toward clear, angular lines. But does this mean manufacturers need to respond by releasing completely new models? Not at all! Just look at the automobile industry: Car manufacturers are keeping successful models in their line-ups for many years, only giving them the occasional facelift, if needed. The same can be said for Oakley, who have recently given the popular “Jupiter” model an update. The result is called the “Jupiter Squared,” and it lives up to its name: The more angular version of the classic Jupiter comes with almost square lenses, as well as a specially angled temple design with eye-catching ribbons and studs on the hinges, not to forget the characteristic Square-O-Icon. In true Oakley tradition, the colorways offer frame and lens combos in styles ranging from athletic/fashionable to easy-going/relaxed. And did we mention that the Jupiter Squared is available in a wood-grain styling?

The technological execution is flawless: The Jupiter Square is crafted from lightweight and flexible O Matter material. For a slip-proof fit, Oakley relies on Unobtainium temples. The three-point-fit of the frames ensures precision optics by keeping the lenses level with the wearer’s eyes. And speaking of the lenses… these are crafted from Plutonite, combining robustness with optical precision. Much like the automobile industry, Oakley offers lots of customization options, including Iridium coating for increased contrast perception and polarized lenses for clear sight without reflections or glare. So get ready for these Oakleys to hit stores, because then it’s all about, “be there, or be squared!”
