Oakley Latches On To Skateboarders

by The Editors on December 1, 2015


It’s been decades since Oakley has designed a pair of sunglasses that a skateboarder would wear. Their Frogskins were about it and they were released in 1985. Now, thanks to some input from skateboarders Eric Koston, Sean Malto, Curran Caples and skate photog Atiba Jefferson Oakley has a pretty smooth set of shades that not only look good, but come with some needed function for anyone who has ever clipped their glasses over the neck of their T-shirt. They’re called the Oakley Latch.

“It was just amazing to team up with three skate legends and see this frame come to life,” said Jefferson. “We collaborated with the Oakley design team on all elements – from frame shape to logo placement – to develop a truly signature product that I know we’re all really proud of.”

Oakley_LATCH_how-toThe “latch” is located behind the hinge on each side of the glasses and allows the glasses to be locked on to the neck of a T-shirt. We had a little trouble latching the shades to the shirt (it often took two hands), but once the latch is attached our days of spilling our sunglasses onto the street were over.

The Latch retails starting at $130 and can be purchased online at Oakley. For the official word from Oakley, follow the jump.

by The Editors on October 29, 2015


We’ve all heard how one day soon (some would argue it already happened) the iPhone’s camera will outpace the DSLRs and the camera business will come crashing down around Apple’s feet. Well, a good way to be ready for that day is with an olloclip 4-IN-1 lens.

The award-winning 4-IN-1 Lens for iPhone 6/6s & iPhone 6/6s Plus delivers the most versatile and premium mobile lens experience in a compact, easy-to-use design. It features four advanced optic quick-change lenses (Fisheye, Wide-Angle, Macro 10x and 15x) that weigh in at less than an ounce.

And this one is even better because it’s a “special-edition Rose Gold” model. For all the official details, please follow the jump.

Electric’s Mashman & Shield Rules

by The Editors on October 14, 2015


The new Mashman Helmet and shield from Electric may be our favorite snowboarding helmet concept for 2016.

Inspired by the counterculture period of the 1960’s, where motorcycle culture embodied a rebellious spirit of a new generation looking for freedom. That same freedom can be found on the hill today; riding as fast as you can with the wind in your face.

Not only will it allow us to zone out like Daft Punk while on the lift, the Mashman also offers total protection from those pesky drones (see below).
