October 29th, 2012 by

Winter is right around the corner, and to help you make the most of it Oakley is introducing a brand new toy to its lineup: The Airwave goggle. Featuring an all-new frame shape, the Airwave integrates Recon Instruments’ heads-up display. Complete with GPS, Bluetooth and myriad other sensors, the Airwave seamlessly blends cutting-edge electronics and Oakley’s world-class optics. The Airwave is set to be released on Wednesday, October 31 at select retailers, resorts and online.

The heads up display shows information such as speed, distance traveled, altitude, and vertical, so you can brag to your friends at the end of the day. Additionally, the sensors show jump analytics (to see how big, or small, you’re going) and allow users to pinpoint themselves on resort maps (on release you’ll be able to choose form over 600 resorts worldwide). The Bluetooth connection allows pairing with smartphones for viewing of incoming calls and texts, which will be available for use with Google’s Android operating system upon release and on Apple’s iOS this December.

The all-new frame shape is a medium-to-large fit, unisex(!) goggle, currently offered in two frame colors (pictured above). While the first two models will come with either a black iridium or fire iridium lens, a range of accessory lenses in a variety of tints will be available. The goggle also utilizes Oakley’s Switchlock lens system, making the swapping of lenses a hassle-free endeavor. The Airwave comes with a sticker price of $599.95, and will be available at Oakley retailers, oakley.com and apple.com.

Be on the lookout for a full review once we can get our hands on some of these Bad Larrys.
