(The Gear Loop) - Oakley has followed up the re-release of its classic 90s SubZero glasses with a new, lighter and more technically-advanced model.

Dubbed the Re:SubZero, the latest iteration weighs in at just 24 grams and has been designed for running, training or general active use. They incorporate Oakley’s PhysioMorphic geometry, which allows the lenses to wrap around the face but maintain their rigidity and structural integrity.

Plus, the addition of Oakley’s now famous Prizm lenses helps to boost the contrast and enhance colour for a clear view ahead.

To assist in launching the new shades, Oakley has roped in Aori Nishimura, reigning women’s world champion of street skateboarding, as well NFL star Aaron Jones and six-time Olympic medalist Andre de Grasse.

Caio Amato, Oakley Global Head of Marketing, said: "Re:SubZero is a result of our obsession with creating a great experience to consumers to relieve the heavy weight each one is carrying, regardless of their levels. It is 30 years of heavy innovation, in just 24g".

Other notable innovations include a unique way of attaching the lenses to the frame allows the lens, lug and the Oakley icon to all blend into one flush design. Unobtainium nose pads help to provide no-slip grip.

As you would imagine, the Re:SubZero comes in a variety of colours, too, such as oranges, reds and blues. 

The release of the Re:SubZero follows on from the relaunch of the SubZero, which comes some 30 years after the unveiling of the original, future-thinking eyewear.

It’s all part of Oakley’s MUZM platform, which takes original, classic designs and relaunches them with modern materials and the very latest build technology.
