Bio

Oakley’s Cadel Evans is a made-for-the-movies success story. Originally a champion mountain biker with two World Cup trophies, the Australian switched to road cycling full-time in 2001. In 2007, he came to within 23 seconds of taking cycling’s greatest race, the Tour de France. Competing in the 2009 world road championships, Cadel soloed to earn the coveted rainbow jersey. He went on to wear the leader’s jersey in both the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France, and won La Flèche Wallonne. Victories at Tirreno-Adriatico and the Tour de Romandie, as well as a runner-up placement at the Critérium du Dauphiné, built excitement in 2011 — a year that would see Cadel donning the Tour de France’s yellow jersey and riding triumphantly into Paris.

Road cycling isn’t just a grueling test of human endurance. It pushes the body beyond its design specs, beyond the limits of reason. That’s the place you’ll find Cadel at his best. He respects Oakley for exceeding the limits of possibility, and he sees RadarLock eyewear as a crowning achievement. Its Switchlock Technology optimizes and adapts his vision with ease by letting him change lenses quickly. The durability and protection of RadarLock meet his uncompromising performance demands while its High Definition Optics and comfortably secure fit provide a race-ready solution for the challenges of road cycling.
