Anyone noticed the new but kinda retro fluro Oakleys that the tour riders are wearing this year?

Vino had some fluro yellow rims on today and I saw Millar with some kinda splat effect ones!

Haven't been watching the tour, are they the new Radars in retro colours? I know they reissued the Blade and Frogskins recently.......waiting for a reissue of the Mumbo with splatter frames, classic 1990's style 8)

I had a set of JT's before upgrading to Razor Blades, then Mumbos.

My buddy had Slits, which really were teeny in side. Kind of like an eyebrow shade for the bigger face :D

they did re-release Blades and Razors a couple of years back. All flouro etc to cash in on the current generation's opinions that 'our' era was ironicool.

Still around if you want to look like Greg Lemond in the 1989 TDf.

i have to say they are just awful - i hate those flouro glasses in the TdF. Only M frames should be treated to such retro touches. Those ones just look naff.

I still have my pink splatter Mumbos with blue Iridium heater lens, wouldn't sell them but wouldn't use them now either! prefer a nice black frame now and not a big fan of Iridium coating either :D
