2011 Oakley Limited Edition Echelon Jawbone sunglasses with photochromic lenses for bike shop dealers only

Oakley feels ya, so they’ve put their limited edition Echelon Jawbone and Radar sunglasses on the faces of Levi Leipheimer, Andy Schleck and Chris Horner during the Tour of California and made them for IBD retail only. Both have a carbon-fiber look frame with interchangeable lenses and come with Ruby VR50 Photochromic lenses installed…the same lenses that George Hincapie and others are rockin’. Retail on both are $250.

2011 Oakley Limited Edition Echelon Radar sunglasses with photochromic lenses for bike shop dealers only

PRESS RELEASE: With its True Carbon finish, this Oakley Echelon edition leaves ordinary sunglasses in a slipstream of style. The look is a high salute to the carbon fiber technology that creates insanely lightweight bikes for the pro peloton. You’ll be the one to watch because we gave the look an ultra POP factor, enriching the race-ready optics with a fresh color that paints performance with personality.

Echelon editions with single-lens sport shields utilize Oakley Photochromic, and dual-lens editions are Activated by Transitions®. Both versions darken in response to sunlight to adapt your vision and help you keep up with changing conditions. Our VR50™ lens tint is matched with Ruby Iridium® coating for the ultimate performance combo. If it’s sunny at the start and drizzling at the finish, no worries. The optics will adjust to keep you focused on the road with razor sharp clarity. The lenses of Echelon editions are especially good in shadows and under trees, and when you’re heading in and out of tunnels.

Amy Snyder's Hell on Two Wheels cycling book about the Race Across America RAAM

Amy Snyder’s Hell on Two Wheels has become the number one cycling book on Amazon recently, and she’s kicking off a book tour June 2 throughout the U.S.

Chronicling the insanity that often accompanies solo efforts to win the RAAM (Race Across America) every summer, Hell on Two Wheels interviews riders and follows them before, during and after to watch as the race takes its mental and physical toll.

Speaking of Amazon, the MSRP is $24.95, but get it online for $14.55.
