    Can't start a thread with that title... I read "New Release, Romeo 1, 2014," from a well-respected vendor.

    Interested in the Valve, Silver/Fire, but from stateside O-stores.

    Im kinda disappointed on the new Valve, its not even close from its predecessor. Does oakley runs out of name ideas? its seems like they're recycling the name to catch peoples attention, and from the thread title, I thought they were going to release a new R1 (romeo 1)?? :D

    Maybe it should read Q1 instead of R1 Q1 would be first quarter, what is R1?

    yeah the R1 thing confused me although I was sure it couldn't have meant Romeo. That would be some surprise. lol

    Not to be a downer but I also had hopes of the Valve being a re-release of the original. I loved that old style. Aggressive orbitals along with the Scar and Splice, shaped sharply to the very ends of the ear stems. I agree on giving it a different name for record's sake. The design as it is, I don't know. It's bland imo just because it's easy to get drawn into comparing it with the original, but maybe it will sell better because the casual eyewear customer won't be so...intimidated by it or something.

    Oakley do 3 releases per year and name them R1, R2 and R3. Apologies, understand this being read as Romeo 1 wasn't the intention and is now removed!

    Having said that maybe Oakley will see this and get some ideas about re-releasing it! Or would that be expecting too much?

    Oakley Valve was inspired by the original and developed into a sport and lifestyle frame, agreed that the more casual approach will prove to be a success with a wider range of consumers. However, we are seeing the down fall to this design is less appealing to Oakley lovers of the original. Overall Shade Station love this new design and have high hopes for its future.

    I have attached some spec info for the Valve for anyone who is interested.
