Polarized lenses are responsible for reducing glare from flat surfaces, e. g. of the water sheet. The reduction of glare makes the image sharper and the colors more saturated.
The amount of light that is able to pass through the lens and reach the eye. Determined by the degree of darkening of the lens.
C100 is Christian Hundertmark, a Munich based artist and designer. Born in 1974, Christian started drawing at a young age. In 1989, he painted his first graffiti “Batman,” to be followed by 10 years of active graffiti writing. After his design studies and a short year in advertising, Christian worked as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator before founding his own studio in 2003. Under the name C100 Studio, he and his team work for clients such as Rome Snowboards, Sony BMG, Oakley, Nudie Jeans, Sonarkollektiv and Levis, just to name a few. In 2003, he began to immerse himself in other forms of street art, fascinated by the endless possibilities of new mediums. Despite being very busy with his own projects, he worked on building an expansive network of street artists.
Later that year, his first book “The Art of Rebellion: World of Street Art” was published, which got very good feedback from the worldwide street art scene. Michael de Feo, a renowned New York artist also known as “The Flower Guy,” described the book as “the Yellow Pages of street art.” Three years later his second book, “The Art of Rebellion II: World of Urban Art activism” was released, which documented the evolution of this art form within the past three years. Both books sold over 70,000 copies worldwide. In Fall 2008, he finished his first book of the new series, “Part of Rebellion,” which focuses on only one artist’s work, featuring his friend Flying Fortress. Also in 2008, a C100 Studio edition of Pyramyd’s Design and Designers book series was released. All named books are available in bookstores worldwide. Beside working as an author and designer, Christian holds workshops and lectures for students in Milan and Vienna.
Snow goggle technology has been in a deep freeze for decades. We’re fanatics about everything to do with gravity, risk and snow capped peaks, and some of the greatest athletes on the mountain rely on our innovations. That’s why we tore apart the whole concept of goggles and reinvented them from scratch. The result is Oakley SPLICE®.
To understand what we mean, you have to try on these goggles. Period. When you do, you’ll experience the unbelievable comfort of our skeletal support system. It took a ton of anatomical engineering, and the end result is a unique architecture that spans the entire nasal area. The internal support system reduces pressure on the nose by tuning the distribution of contact forces across critical zones. As if that’s not enough, it also maximizes airflow.
The support system works with O MATTER® frame material that remains flexible even in extreme cold. Combined with moisture wicking triple-layer fleece foam and strap outriggers that evenly balance pressure, the system makes this design one of the most comfortable goggles ever created for winter sports.
Splice has an interchangeable lens design that features semi-flush lens mounting, a means of optimizing downward visibility. Side-to-side vision is also maximized. Our designers matched optical innovations in lens contouring with structural refinements, so even the strap outriggers are engineered to stay out of the way and help maintain a panoramic view with wide-open peripheral vision.
The Oakley tech team went even further, devising a way to eliminate the keyhole structures that normally come with interchangeable lens designs. The process of lens changing has never been faster or more efficient. All Splice lenses are dual vented and feature Oakley’s F3 anti-fog technology. Pure PLUTONITE® lens material filters out 100% of all UVA, UVB and UVC while offering unrivaled impact protection.
