Oakley Reveals Newest Limited Release: Chrome BMX Arrays

first_imgAt this point you might be asking yourself what is an array, is it the name of the glasses or what? Array is the term Oakley uses to describe an entire kit for a pair of sunglasses. The Array usually includes one frame, 3 lenses, multiple earsocks or nose pieces, bag, and case. So in this case there are two styles of sunglasses each with a limited edition Chrome BMX Array.The lenses offered in the array aren’t just any standard lenses. They are special lens tints offered in limited pieces in Oakley’s sun glass offering, and were selected specifically for inclusion in this array. For example, when you’re deep in nature and the sun is bright, you need increased visual contrast to bring out fine detail. Pop in the Violet IRIDIUM® lenses and complete the look by slipping on the matching purple earsocks. For neutral contrast that helps you maintain color recognition, install the Jade IRIDIUM lenses and Green earsocks, and you’ll be ready for a wide range of light conditions. The +Red IRIDIUM lenses go with the Red earsocks, and that premium lens color offers neutral contrast under bright skies.Look for these eye catching shades at a bike shop near you this May, and look to spend $350.00 to get a pair of these limited and very cool glasses. Both frames will come prescription ready. Head on over to Cyclingnews.com to see James Huang’s shots of these glasses under natural light to see just how shiny this chrome really is! Glimmering in the sun like the shiny new P.K. Ripper you lusted after back in the day,  the newest gotta-have-it unobtanium from Oakley takes form in the new Chrome BMX Array. Paying homage to those Quadrangle, Looptail, and twin top tube BMX frames from the late 70’s and early 80’s that were seemingly dripping with chrome, the new models are sure to catch anyone’s attention. Oakley states the BMX Array was “inspired by the decades Oakley has been part of two-wheeled sports, the BMX Chrome frame salutes the chromed bikes of kids who have become today’s champions.”The limited edition Array will consist of both a Jawbone and a Radar frame, each with 3 pairs of matching lenses and earsocks to emulate the color matched anodized parts that were all the rage then, and starting to come back now.  In addition, Oakley chose matte black for the frame jaw to throw in a nod to BMX tires. The new Oakley BMX Array will also include a custom Microclear polishing/storage bag and an Oakley Ballistic case to store them in. Both the Arrays will be available at premium bike dealers.See the new Chrome BMX Radars after the break!last_img read more

House Passed Oil Tax Credit Bond Bill

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The House passed Governor Walker’s proposal to pay off nearly $1 billion in oil and gas tax credits, on Thursday, May 3. Last year lawmakers worked to end the system that paid tax credits to small companies that produced oil and looked for new fields. Alaska’s three largest oil and gas companies are not eligible to receive these credits. The bill passed in the House by a vote of 23 to 15, and will not we sent to the Senate for consideration. The measure was introduced by Governor Walker and enables issuance of up to $1 billion in bonds to pay small oil and gas exploration companies the tax credits they were promised by the State of Alaska by past legislatures.center_img In exchange for getting paid now rather than waiting years, small companies that are owed credits will accept a discounted rate, saving the state a significant amount of money. Representative Scott Kawasaki (D-Fairbanks) is worried that the state is just trading one debt for another: “This really goes in the wrong direction, in my opinion. What this does is it says rather than trying to live within our means, and come up with a fiscal plan, that we will instead take out a loan, that we will instead take out a credit card.” last_img read more
