C SIX SUNGLASSES

Carbon Fiber Contact us before ordering this item This premier eyewear design in the new Elite collection blends carbon fiber with customized mechanics and the
world’s best optical technologies. Called Oakley Elite C SIX, its moniker comes from the fact that
carbon (the “C” in the name) is the 6th element in the periodic table, hence “C SIX.” This invention was
inspired by more than just the passion to create the ultimate sunglasses. “We took examples from segmented
creatures in the animal kingdom,” said Senior Design Director Peter Yee. “We looked at animals
like the armadillo and studied how parts move and slide. It’s the same idea with armored suits
– you have flexibility and function that remains protective.“

Auto racing was another inspiration. “We were looking at cams that move valves,” said Global Eyewear
Development Manager Steve Ogren. “That’s when we came up with the concept of radial cams for the frame
mechanics.” The connection to racecars didn’t stop there. “Some of the contours of C SIX take cues from
speed machines,” said Oakley President Colin Baden. “When we decided to use carbon fiber, we went to the
guys who have been building Formula One racecars for decades, Crosby Composites of England. They’re the
absolute best on the planet with this technology.”

C SIX

The C SIX premier frame in this exclusive eyewear family takes aesthetics to an entirely new arena, and it
would not be possible without the world’s most advanced structural technologies. Oakley Elite C SIX
utilizes pure carbon fiber, a material thinner than human hair yet stronger than high tensile steel. This
breakthrough innovation from the aerospace industry is blended with resins and assembled into
structures more than 40 layers thick. Five-axis Computer Numeric Control machining carves and shapes the
composite with a process that requires more than 24 hours of continuous tooling.

C SIX ALUMINUM

This unique rendition of C SIX Aluminum has two components of carbon fiber with the remainder comprised of
aluminum. With production technologies originally developed for the manufacture of premium wristwatches,
aluminum is sculptured in custom-engineered tooling processes including precise 20,000 rpm
cutting by Computer Numeric Controlled robotics. The aluminum structures are anodized with electricity
then combined with the carbon fiber components and a flexible titanium spine. Hand assembly is followed by hand finishing and hand polishing.
