    the right side has more flex than the left. Is it normal?

    Depending one when you got them (which gen) then yes.
    How old are they
    How much do you wear them

    Few factors there but others with more technical expertise can explain better. Like @THE X-MAN

    The pair in question is this one. Juliet X-Metal Ruby Irdium 24-125 is it legit? I think it's been this way ever since I got it.

    My x-metal/ruby had more flex on the right side as well. I wouldn't call them loose but the right side did move a bit more than the left. I believe its normal. Great looking pair.

    Yea I just realized it's the same on my other pair.. So I think it's intentional by Oakley.. Right side has more flex..

    I'm not sure if its intentional, but I've seen it on 2 pairs of Juliets. Both had more movement on the right side.

    Intentional isn't the exact word I would use.
    More of an accident and it ended up becoming normal

    Well they are symmetrical so they should be the same on both sides. I can't think of another reason.

    Yes but there is a specific left and a right orbital. Can't switch them around.

    This has actually been mentioned before. Someone messed up and it became normal for the right side to have more give than the left side.
