    Does any one have any idea why Oakley loves to mess with us ?!?! The Infinite Hero line provides violet iridium lenses in all of there models except the Radar. WTF..... I mean IMO the didn't do the Radar justice, it's like they just forgot about it. They don't even make replacement lenses for any of IH line, who cares the etched logo isn't there, they don't even offer the option. You will have to send in the frame to obtain new ones...... They only make replacement violet iridium lenses for 3 models of frames currently, the crankcase, Holbrook and half jacket 2.0. The Batwolf along with a bunch of other frames have a violet iridium lens option for its frame, you can't buy an extra or replacement but it's available in a prebuilt frame..... What gives?? Personally I think the lens is an awesome color on a matte colored frame. They really need to have these available.

    I agree, the violet iridium is amazing and I love them in my IH pairs.

    For some reason Oakley likes to recycle parts. For instance, the Fuel Cell already had Violet Iridium lenses (Clear with Violet Iridium) but not for the Split Jacket and they decided to make that. At the same time they didn't make it for the Radar. I'm sure there is a reason why they do what they do, but unless you know someone deep within the company, we'll probably never know why.
