Polarized X Squared Polished Carbon/Black Iridium (OO6011-06)

h2. Polarized X Squared Sunglasses We took X Metal® all the way with this latest creation. Oakley X Squared™ continues a legacy of invention by blending lightweight titanium alloy with some of the most advanced technologies ever to hone light rays. This is how originality gets aggressive, and the look is not for the uninitiated. It’s for those who defy the architects of life and put up their own blueprint. Oakley X Metal is the only 3-D sculptured, hypoallergenic, all-metal frame family on Earth. The strength-to-weight ratio is phenomenal and the feel is surprisingly light. Resilient flex couplers allow the frame to fit comfortably around the head. Unobtainium® components actually increase grip with sweat as they provide the contact zones for a Three-Point Fit that holds the lenses in precise alignment. The optical performance of X Squared is what you would expect from Oakley. First off, the lenses are made with Oakley Hydrophobic™/Oleophobic technology, a performance coating that lets water slide off to help keep your vision clear. It also fights smudges from skin oils and lotions. The lenses themselves have a full 8.75 base curvature with the clarity of patented XYZ Optics®, a benefit of High Definition Optics® (HDO®) Our Plutonite® lens material filters out 100% of all UV. The lens/frame combination achieves impact resistance that meets ANSI Z87.1 standards for high mass and high velocity. You have a range of lens choices to choose from, including Oakley HDPolarized options that eliminate 99% of reflected glare. Our Iridium® lens coatings further reduce glare while balancing light transmission. You can even get this frame with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses that have a combined power of +2.00 through -3.00, and you can choose anything from clear lenses to performance sun hues with premium coatings. Lens: Oakley HDPolarized -Minimized glare via technology that produces the best polarized lenses on the planet with greater than 99% polarization efficiency Optimized peripheral vision and side protection of 8.75 base lens curvature Optical precision and impact resistance that meets or exceed Z87.1 optical and high impact standards Comes standard with Oakley Hydrophobic™/Oleophobic anti– smudge lens coating on all lens options UV protection of Plutonite® lens material that filters out 100% of UVA/UVB/UVC & harmful blue light up to 400nm Patented XYZ Optics® for maximum clarity at all angles of vision Glare reduction and tuned light transmission of Iridium® lens coatings (optional) Available with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses (+2.00 through -3.00 combined power) Frame: Oakley X Metal® : the only 3-D sculpted, hypoallergenic , all metal frame on earth Lightweight Titanium alloy with phenomenal strength-to-weight ratio and rugged durability Internal flex couplers allow flexibility for precise fit Patented hydrophilic Unobtainium® earsocks and nosepads ensure a snug, secure fit Comfort and performance of Three-Point Fit that holds lenses in precise optical alignment Accessories Included X-Metal Collector's Edition Coin

King of The X Metals
Date:August 10, 2010
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Optimal clarity, No glare, lightweight for structure, a piece of art for your face.
I owned a pair of Oakley polarized Juliet's for years. After experiencing X Metal you will understand why no other pair of shades will work for you. Nothing but X Metal can define what sunglasses can actually do to protect your eyes, to build your confidence, to emphasize your Awesome. I've done Splinter's (Allright, but a little big on my face top to bottom), and Whiskers (which I highly recommend). Nothing else like Oakley's Polarization on Earth. I wasn't prepared for how perfect the X Squared is. Flawless design, incredibly lightweight. It hugs your face and melds to your skin, becoming one with your personal facial structure. It blocks out light without compromising peripheral vision. They are beyond comfort, beyond sunglasses. They are Oakley's vision of perfection, and you'll be one step closer with them.

best x metal to date
Date:July 27, 2010
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Optimal clarity, No glare, just plain cool, light weight and great eye coverage, x metal = chic magnet
Cons: cant find one
i have been wearing oakley xmetal shades for years now . the x squared are oakley at their finest . these have have a stylish look beyond compare to anything else in this market. the fit is excellant they stay in place. the eye coverage is awsome . the wiieght of a metal frame is not an issue with these bad boys . if you are a flak jacket fan then you need try a pair of these on and you will be amazed. once again i cant stress enough about the eye coverage (optimal coverage with out the slestak look lol)

Awesome shades!
Date:June 5, 2010
Pros: Comfortable, Optimal clarity
I have admired the Juliet but found the size to be a bit small. I would have purchased a pair of Romeo's if they weren't discontinued. So, enter the X Squared;
The fit, look, and performance are all first rate. I was concerned about the weight from the reviews I have read, but was pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable these glasses are. The main issue for me is adequate eye coverage, and the x square offers plenty of it. Do yourself a favor and try a pair on!
PS:
I really hope Oakley offers as many accessory lenses for these as they do for the Juliet!

ANOTHER OAKLEY GRANDSLAM!!
Date:March 19, 2010
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Optimal clarity, No glare
Cons: no replacement colored lenses
i have always been a huge fan of the x-metal line from oakley due to them being one of a kind rounded type sunglasses. i have never been a fan of these newer squared shaped sunglasses. i already knew i wasn't going to like them because of them being a squared shape however i was totally wrong. besides them being a square shaped x-metals they are also lighter that the previous x-metals. and they fit me just perfect. no more wearing juliets for me so move over juliets there's a new bad boy in town and its called X-Squared!!
*****the only down side to these glasses is that Oakley doesn't make different replacement colored lenses like the juliets.*****
*****OAKLEY IF YOU ARE READING THIS PLEASE START MAKING REPLACEMENT COLORED LENSES FOR THESE X-SQUARED GLASSES!!!*****

Polished Carbon-Black Iridium Polarized
The first time I saw these, I wasn't really sure what to think. I was so accustomed to all the X-Metals being rounded and this was so different. Someone had taken the Eyepatch design and made them X-Metals!
After I tried these on and I got to see myself wearing them, I immediately bought them. This is what X-Metal was born to be. Wicked edges, square frame, slight hammerstem and a really cool cutout on the stem that unfortunately you can't see well on the picture. You really have to see the whole glasses in person to truly appreciate the beauty and architecture.
As an X-Metal, they are heavy and take some getting used to, but they are well worth the time and investment. They are a tad lighter than Juliets and designed for wider faces as well. They also come with an X-Metal soft vault!

I'm all over these.
Date:November 3, 2009
Pros: Comfortable, Durable
...and I thought my Pit Boss was the end all, be all.
I had the original Romeos and thought they were out of this world different. Well, they've done it again. These are so interesting, bringing cues from the square O line, a cool edge sculpted above the orbital, the return of the hammerstem, with a new cutout - I hope this cue makes it elsewhere, its a nice touch. The overall feel is that of the Gascan - same overall dimension, which is very nice. I love all of my X-metals, and will probably end up with a few of these. Of course, we know they're just about indestructible - and can be easily serviced when they loosen up.
I am waiting for the polished black. Price is about right given the history of X-metal. Hey - I am glad to see that the Art has returned to the big O, in a big way.
Thanks Oakley. Factory copilot, Chiromaniac.
