Who can tell me what Oakley originally made before they got into sunglasses? And no fair if you do a search online......

Bonus points if you can name 2 or m ore models in the oakley product line from the pre-sunglass days.
ski goggles? or is that considered to be sunglasses? haharrjc5488

Wow im so wrong, and very good question.
Another guess would be leather products... they have a 500 dollar leather hat, maybe? haha

Oakley "dragons" as a 11 year old at the LBS back in the early 80s.

Nice job! Amazing how many "hardcore" riders there are who get stumped on this one.

They started out making grips for moto/bmx (and they were the most innovative grip manufacturer, too). Their first forray into sunglasses were the Factory Pilots, a goggle style lens shape with ear pieces and a foam strip above the brow to catch sweat (very 80's). They then came out with the Wayfarer styled Frogskins.
