    New here and hope you guys can help.

    I have been searching for a new set of nose pads for my Gen 1 Racing Jackets with no luck.
    There is no support for these anymore from Oakley.
    Anyone know where I can find a set? Anywhere?

    Please help me save these classics and keep them going a few more seasons.

    No, Radar is a one piece pad. The Gen 1 RJ has two.
    Nothing short of Water Jacket pads look close.

    I got mine from Oakley in the UK no problem. I just called them, paid £8.00 & they sent them out. Took 5 days

    The Radar is two pads that are linked, they hook onto the frame in a similar fashion. There are likely other nosebombs you can make fit since Oakley uses a very similar mounting method on most O Matter frames.

    And the Water Jacket is the same frame, so I hope the bombs fit.

    Racing Jacket and Water Jacket nose bombs are interchangeable. I know because i have both nose bombs. :)

    I just came across a Water Jacket in the DE case at my local Vault... $129 I believe.

    That's not a bad price if it's complete. I paid more than that for mine.

    It was complete...
    I wanted to buy them sooo bad... But I had already bought a set of Ice Fuel Cell lenses, a Jupiter Camo Jawbone and a Large Carbon Vault.

    I don't know how I missed them while I was browsing the store... I just happened to see them as I was leaving.

    If they're still there in a week I'll pick em up!
